18 Years Strong and Counting

sunlighten celebrates 18 yearsIt was more than two decades ago that my brother, Jason Lincoln Jeffers, found healing of his chronic illness from infrared treatments. Charged with a desire to offer that same wellness opportunity to others, Jason started Sunlighten 18 years ago this month. My husband, Aaron and I joined him on this journey – wow, what a ride!

At Sunlighten, we want to change the way the world thinks about wellness. We are committed to innovating wellness products and services that empower you to improve your quality of life. We’re building a global community of businesses, consumers, and trusted experts to support you every step of the way. We want to make a difference in our customers’ lives, and that of humanity at large.

We have an incredible team at Sunlighten. We couldn’t do all we do and serve our customers and community without them. As a company, we focus our efforts on creating effective wellness solutions and doing whatever it takes to make our customers feel special, hopeful and appreciated. This year was no different. Here are some of the highlights.  

Colorful Creations

This last year we made several advancements to our sauna products with a number of software updates that enhance yoursunlighten cold-pressed juice experience. We also launched an upgraded Solo portable sauna with built-in Chromotherapy.   The Solo dome now features an LED light array to provide the ancient healing method of light and color therapy to improve health and harmony.  At Sunlight Day Spa located in our Overland Park, KS headquarters, we now offer a tasty and oh so healthy line of handcrafted, cold-pressed juices – another way to heal from the inside out.  We offer six cold-press juice blends that can be purchased alone or as a 3-day juice cleanse. This coming year keep an eye on our online store for new products that will soon be revealed.

Growing a Community with Purpose

Our vision to make a difference goes way beyond the products we sell.  We believe wholeheartedly in empowering and inspiring others through connection.  We’ve been busy building a global community of customers, experts and associates to support each other through their wellness journeys.

A New Hub for our Tribe

You are our community – our customers, our experts, our team. We always want to ensure that you have a place to connect with us and each other. You can always do that by contacting us directly via the information on our site. But now we have a central hub that inspires and empowers members to live healthier lives – the Sunlighten Wellness Tribe.  This is a closed Facebook Group where we can connect to learn and share, ask questions and have fun. We hope you’ll join us there.
