At Sunlighten, we receive regular inquiries from parents asking about the use of infrared sauna for children, especially those with autism. Not only can Sunlighten therapies provide relief, we are now teaming up with the National Autism Association to provide real help and hope so that those affected can reach their full potential. During Autism Awareness Month in April, Sunlighten donating a portion of sales to NAA!
Why are we at Sunlighten such big supporters of the National Autism Association? Because autism is growing at alarming rates, now the #1 childhood disorder affecting almost 1 in 50 children. As many believe that there are environmental components to many neurological and behavioral health conditions, the detoxification benefits of infrared saunas are often sought after by both parents and health care providers of children on the spectrum.
We talked a little about those detoxification benefits in a blog post, Infrared Sauna Therapy for Autistic Children, here last year. It’s a quick but informative read if you’re looking to learn more about infrared therapy and autism.
While there is no cure for autism, children and adults on the autism spectrum can still live happy and fulfilling lives by finding methods that help to cope with anxiety, sensory issues, sleeping disorders and other related challenges. One method, Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.), creates an environment for the body to experience the benefits of sound and vibration healing in an integrative way. Feeling the music we hear brings our bodies into harmony physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and environmentally.
Autism requires a holistic lifestyle approach. Combining infrared therapy and A.R.T. provides a natural, healing environment that can benefit the whole family.
