Infrared Sauna

In the serene realm of relaxation and wellness, the infrared sauna emerges as a modern marvel, distinctly setting itself apart from traditional saunas. Unlike its counterparts, infrared saunas redefine the therapeutic experience by harnessing the power of electromagnetic radiation to directly warm your body.

How it Works

Infrared saunas forego the conventional method of heating the air within the chamber. Instead, they employ specialized infrared lamps that emit electromagnetic radiation, seamlessly penetrating the human tissue, ensuring a more comfortable and effective therapeutic session.

Infrared heaters may all look alike—a wood-framed black box—but not all infrared heaters are alike. Sunlighten’s patented SoloCarbon infrared heating technology delivers the highest quantity and quality of infrared available for you to feel better and do more.

To stimulate health benefits, saunas need a source to emit high concentrations of peak infrared waves—not just heat. (In physics, this quality is “emissivity.”) That’s why Sunlighten worked with chemistry expert Dr. Ronald Lewarchik to develop their patented coating to create a highly emissive surface. This first-of-its-kind heater changed the industry. The result: a unique finish that maximizes the highest quality and quantity of infrared available.

Temperature Distinction

One notable departure from tradition lies in the operating temperature. In contrast to the soaring temperatures of traditional saunas, typically ranging between 150˚F and 180˚F, infrared saunas operate at a more moderate range, usually between 120˚F and 140˚F, but can reach 156 ˚F. This not only enhances comfort but also underscores the efficiency of infrared technology in achieving therapeutic benefits.

The best age to start

Sauna use is unfortunately not recommended for young children. Health experts recommend children under the age of 12 avoid using saunas altogether. 

Benefits of Infrared Saunas

Improved Skin Tone

Infrared sauna therapy widens blood vessels, boosting overall circulation. This aids waste removal and enhances skin oxygenation and nutrient delivery.

Weight Loss

Resting in an infrared sauna can aid weight loss. In a study of obese adults, researchers found body weight and fat decreased after 2 weeks of sauna therapy.

Improves Cardiovascular Function

Infrared sauna therapy has also been shown to be good for your heart. The effect is so powerful that studies show that sitting in infrared saunas can reduce the risk of sudden cardiac arrest.

Pain Relief

Another excellent aspect of infrared sauna therapy is its ability to reduce chronic pain – without the negative side effects of some pain medications.

Wound Healing

Infrared sauna therapy also has an excellent ability to speed up the wound healing process. Infrared rays significantly increase tissue growth and cell regeneration.

Boosts Circulation

Infrared sauna therapy has also been found to improve circulation. This can have far-reaching benefits, from better skin tone (as discussed earlier) to lowered blood pressure.

Relax, Detox And Purify In Your Own Private Cabin

Our saunas offer a patented combination of near, mid and far infrared light, which is clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss. The infrared heat penetrates deeper to detoxify the body, reduce muscular pain and inflammation and rejuvenate skin.
