Powerful Benefits of Sunlighten Infrared Therapy

Sunlighten Sauna Health Benefits


Sweat Out the Toxins

Sunlighten saunas, with the deepest infrared penetration, can help increase blood flow and perspiration. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health by helping to eliminate toxic heavy metals, drug residues and hormone disruptors 5-7.


Boost the Immune System

Heating the body from inside can improve the function of the immune system just like fever can14. Therefore, regular Sunlighten sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu, or even help you recover faster.

pain relief

Enjoy Deep Tissue Relief

Infrared therapy can increase blood flow and reduce inflammation10,8. Sunlighten infrared saunas can best penetrate tissues to relieve aches and pain. Far-infrared sauna therapy has been shown to help with pain from fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions, such as Sjogren’s, Behcet’s, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis11.

weight loss

Boost Metabolism & Lose Fat

Our specific near-infrared wavelength stimulates sluggish metabolism and improved fat burning for energy8. Increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage9.


Experience Bliss & Reduce Stress

Enjoy the euphoria and relaxation from endorphin release, just like after exercising, sweating, or even meditating in the gentle radiant heat2-4. The therapeutic heat will leave you refreshed providing relaxation to calm your mind.

blood pressure

Improve Heart Health

Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, reducing blood sugar, and improving circulation12. In addition, Sunlighten sauna have been clinically shown to reduce blood pressure13.


A Passive Cardio Workout

The elevation in one's core body temperature from a Sunlighten sauna session produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardio workout. Increased circulation from infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and aids in muscle recovery.

wound healing

Heal Wounds Faster & Minimize Scarring

Our advanced Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heating technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near infrared LEDs. No other sauna has this capability.

anti aging

Slow Down & Reverse Aging

Heat-shock responses are like exercises that help your body function as new. In addition, stimulating your metabolism with our near-infrared spectrum can improve skin renewal and slow down aging.

muscle recovery

Repair Muscles Faster

Many professional athletes use Sunlighten saunas to recover from their training and injuries. Our mid-infrared spectrum can best penetrate joints and improve flexibility. Far infrared therapy is known to help with muscle soreness, whereas near infrared helps with tissue regeneration.

How Sunlighten Saunas Maximize Health Benefits

Maximize Infrared Healing Benefits with Sunlighten Solocarbon Technology


Sunlighten Near-Infrared LED Maximizes Anti-aging Benefits

Sunlighten mPulse saunas generates 880 nm near-infrared light using patented LED panels. The 880nm near-infrared can best penetrate the skin (3 mm) and activate the mitochondria to provide the most health benefits. Longer wavelengths, such as 900 – 1000 nm, do not penetrate as deep and may contribute to skin aging.

Most comforting and relaxing sweat from mid- and far-infrared

Sunlighten mid-infrared element can best penetrate tissues and joints, and generate the most heat from inside the body rather than the air. Our far infrared elements have been clinically shown to increase core body temperature up to 3 (~5.4), which is best for increasing sweat and detoxification. Our mid- and far-infrared spectra are optimized for the best absorption for relaxation and health benefits.

Sunlighten mid- and far-infrared heaters emit the infrared spectra that provide the most health benefits, both through heating and non-heating mechanisms. All infrared and sauna therapies generate heat, which provides some heat-related benefits, which are independent of non-heating benefits from specific mid- and far-infrared spectra. Sunlighten saunas do not generate unbearable levels of heat, allowing you to stay in the saunas for longer and reap more overall health benefits. Longer wavelengths, such as 900 – 1000 nm, do not penetrate as deep and may contribute to skin aging.
