Powerful Benefits of Sunlighten Infrared Therapy
Inspired by Nature. Made for Healing.
Sunlighten Sauna Health Benefits
Experience bliss and beat the stress
Enjoy the euphoria and relaxation from endorphin release just like after exercising, while you sweat or even meditate in the gentle radiant heat 2-4. The therapeutic heat will leave you fully refreshed after each session.
Sweat out the toxins
Sunlighten saunas, with the deepest infrared penetration, can help increase blood flow and perspiration. Sweating helps with eliminating toxic heavy metals, drug residues, and hormone disruptors 5-7.
Boost metabolism and fat loss
Our specific near-infrared wavelength stimulates sluggish metabolism and improves fat burning for energy 8. In addition, increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas can also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage9.
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.
Improve heart health
Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, reducing blood sugar, and improving circulation12. In addition, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce blood pressure13.
Slow down and 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.
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.
Sleep better and wake up more refreshed
The heating and cooling down helps you get ready for sleep and also sleep deeper. Sunlighten saunas also help you relax and calms your mind for a great night of sleep.
Recover better from training
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, which is important for recovery from both training and injuries15,16.
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.
