From Darkness to Light
From day one, we have existed to help others.
Sunlighten’s story began over 20 years ago when Connie and Aaron Zack watched her brother’s life transform with the help of infrared light. A decade of failing to find relief from debilitating illness had brought him to a dark place in his health battle with chronic fatigue, mercury poisoning and spinal injury. A dentist recommended infrared light therapy, and it changed his life. He came to life again, able to create his art and do what he loves once again. He founded Sunlight saunas to share what he had found and bring this healing light to others.
Inspired by his experience, the Zacks harnessed their history as pharmaceutical associates and committed everything they had to growing Sunlighten and mastering infrared light, bringing the most amount of infrared—and most health benefits—into the body so others could live their best lives, too. They’ve poured their lives into helping others through innovating and leading the infrared sauna industry.

I’ve used my Sunlighten at least 500 times over the last few years. Every time I use it, I come out stronger, faster, thinner and happier. This is a really important biohack if you want to live a long time.
Infrared saunas are very effective in reducing the stress response and creating balance in the autonomic nervous system. They can improve circulation, help with weight loss, balance blood sugar, and improve detoxification—each of which improves your brain function.
Full spectrum IR sauna therapy would be a multibillion dollar drug if it came in a pill. The ability to heal endothelium, improve symptoms and prognosis for congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease is remarkable. Sunlighten saunas are the only infrared saunas clinically shown to lower blood pressure and reduce belly fat, both contributing factors to a healthy heart.
I rarely endorse anything but I have several Sunlighten saunas and use my own products, FasciaBlaster tools, in them. The heat and infrared ‘melts’ the fascia tissue making my massages so effective. The sauna is as important to me as clean food, exercise and a happy outlook. I could'nt live without my Sunlighten!
It’s one of my mental health brain hacks that has helped me so much to relax and wind down from the pressures of life. My metabolism and clarity of thought have improved, and I have so much energy after a Sunlighten sauna session!
After careful research and speaking with trusted colleagues, I opted for a Sunlighten, the only brand clinically shown to raise core temperature so you burn more fat and more effectively detoxify.
Infrared saunas detox most efficiently. They penetrate deeper than regular saunas, exciting fat molecules to vibrate and release toxins. Sunlighten is my favorite sauna; I believe they have the best technology and quality. I have one at home and use it daily.
There is a mountain of evidence on infrared sauna use showing that it is as foundational as diet and exercise. Sauna use is a miracle practice. I love my sauna. I use it. I benefit from it.
Infrared sauna is a safe, gentle way to support overall health, sexual health and vitality. Sunlighten provides the best technology. They've been hand-building personalized saunas for 20+ years. The mPulse 3 in 1 is one of the most thoughtful investments you can make for your health.
I’m a long-time believer of infrared sauna therapy and its natural healing benefits. I love the Sunlighten brand and have been using my infrared sauna for years.
I use my Sunlighten Sauna two or three times a week, every week. As a busy executive and mom, I have very few minutes to myself. Nothing helps me relax and detox in the little time I have available like my personal sauna!
Four months after I began saunaing regularly, my high morning blood sugar normalized. My last blood test showed my insulin as normal. I credit my sauna for supporting my blood sugar when it didn’t adequately respond to diet, lifestyle, and supplements.
After looking into numerous infrared saunas, I chose Sunlighten because of their most effective SoloCarbon infrared technology, quality of materials and the enjoy vs. endure sauna experience. I believe that Sunlighten has the best sauna for you.
If you are purchasing a sauna for health benefits, the single most important element to consider is heater emissivity which determines how efficient infrared heat is conducted and emitted.
When I purchased my Solo I was nervous if I'd use it enough to justify the investment. Years later, I still happily use my sauna weekly, as does my family. It's snuggly and relaxing. I get a healthy sweat in the convenience of my own home. I love having a home sauna. I know I'm investing in my short and long-term health each time I use it.
My Sunlighten Solo is amazing because basically it allows you to have an infrared sauna at home even if you’re living in an apartment like me. It’s so easy to use, so easy to set up, easy to clean, and it feels absolutely wonderful.
Infrared saunas can quickly help you get back to feeling amazing. Sauna therapy has been around for centuries to detoxify, but infrared saunas go even further, heating up your body’s core at a cellular level, where most toxins are stored. That’s why my Bulletproof Biohacking lab has an mPulse 3 in 1.
The more I’ve researched saunas, the more I’ve realized that not all infrared saunas are created the same. I’m a lover of research, case studies, and facts, which is one reason I like Sunlighten. Their products are based on extensive research combined with personal experience.
A teammate told me about using infrared saunas to improve his game. I checked it out and have seen improvement myself. I use my Sunlighten sauna at home after a workout to help with recovery. It helps with flexibility and it's also great for helping me maintain my weight.
