This November 11th marks Veterans Day, a day Sunlighten Saunas will proudly celebrate and honor the service of U.S. military veterans. With a reported 30% of Veterans treated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Administration (VA) for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), many who have served our country are suffering daily – both in body and mind.
Fortunately, there are many outlets for veterans suffering from PTSD to explore after returning home. The VA offers three major programs for PTSD victims:
This public awareness campaign provides a variety of resources and support for veterans, connecting them with information about and solutions to issues affecting their lives.
About Face educates veterans on PTSD and helps them explore treatment options and connect with other veterans who have overcome PTSD.
This campaign aims to break the stereotypes about veterans, showing us all that veterans can live successful lives following their military service.
Sunlighten Saunas, with their proven ability to relax and reduce stress (take a few moments to listen to some of our customers in these video testimonials), is another outlet for those recovering from PTSD and other stress-related health issues. In fact, the American Institute of Stress estimates that 75% to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.
Through the use of cutting-edge Solocarbon® heating technology, Sunlighten Saunas deliver the most therapeutic infrared sauna heat per square inch (up to 99% efficient), so that you can relieve stress and fully relax. And the inclusion of Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.) creates an environment for the body to experience the benefits of sound and vibrational healing in an integrative way.
What is Acoustic Resonance Therapy?
Simply put, A.R.T. helps stimulate the natural relaxed state of body and mind, offering significant stress reduction for relief of PTSD symptoms. It balances brainwaves, reminding users of their natural harmonic state by incorporating music into the sauna experience. This integration of sound and infrared sauna makes it easier to relax stressed muscles and joints, stay more focused, and maintain a steady heart rate. It has also been linked to strengthening our immune system and energizing and uplifting users’ moods.
Sunlighten also offers the Acoustic Sleep System for those whose stress or PTSD prevents regular sleep. The Acoustic Sleep System brings the A.R.T. experience to your existing mattress to improve sleep quality.
Whether you know a veteran struggling with the aftermath of his or her service to our country, or are dealing with the daily challenge of living with PTSD yourself, we invite you to connect with our Customer Service Team at 877-292-0020 so we can get you started – or help you continue – on your path to wellness.
