General

What should I wear in the sauna?
Men typically wear workout or swim trunks; women typically wear workout shorts and a tank top or sports bra. When you book a session you get the sauna to yourself (or you can invite 1 person to join you for $7.50), however, we still do not allow full nudity in our sauna. This is simply to reduce how much sweat gets on the bench so we can have it clean for the next person.

How many people will be in the sauna?

Our sauna is a 2-person sauna.  However, when you book your time you get the whole thing to yourself.  If you would like to invite a friend or family member you can bring them with for an additional $10.

How long is a typical session? And how often can I take a session?

Most people partake in a 30-45 minute session, 3 -4 times a week, but it is safe to use every day and at whatever heat suits you best. Our sauna sessions are scheduled every hour so the max time you can be in the sauna is 45 minutes.

Are children allowed to use the sauna? What should I consider with this?

The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using your sauna with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time. A general rule of thumb is 1 minute inside your sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.

What time of day should I use the sauna (am or pm)?

It is completely up to you and your lifestyle. There is no data showing more of a benefit in the morning or evening.

Does infrared technology interfere with implants (metal, silicone, etc.)?

Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.

Detoxification

Infrared Sauna Detoxification

Sweating is good for you. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. And that’s why every Sunlighten detox sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat.

“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with cholitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” – Dr. Rachel West

Sauna detox helps you sweat the small stuff.

Did you know that sauna detox has been widely embraced as a healthy treatment in alternative medicine? As the world moves toward more natural and self-directed treatments, sauna detoxification is getting more and more attention.

Why? Well, the leading principle of sauna detoxification states that the build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.

Detoxification isn’t new. Just better.

Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? A sauna, of course. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.

It is believed that Sunlighten saunas are seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. It is commonly thought that sweat from traditional saunas is 95 to 97% water with salt making up a part of the rest. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt combining the use of far infrared saunas with the chelating agent DMPS in a heavy metal detox protocol. Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. Sunlighten saunas are highly effective detoxification because of our highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon far infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them.  SEE STUDY.

As a result, regular usage of a Sunlighten sauna detox will provide a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside, at the cellular level.

Relaxation

Infrared Sauna Relaxation

Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress-reduction.

Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. 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.

According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – as well as many other health professionals – the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.

Solocarbon
Scientific evidence also shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.

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 be enveloped in soothing warmth to help you relieve stress, ease your muscles and fully relax. And with the inclusion of our exclusive SO Sound acoustic vibrational therapy, you won’t be able to find a more effective combination infrared sauna heat and musical massage to induce deep relaxation and tension relief.

Sunlighten saunas are guaranteed to help you relax in natural comfort with an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will have you feeling fully refreshed after every sauna session.

Weight Loss

Infrared Sauna Weight Loss

In the mood to lose weight? Sunlighten can help. Our saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.

The secret is out on sauna weight loss.
Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your overall quality of life. That’s no secret. In fact, a 10-year study published by The New England Journal of Medicine discovered that the circumference of your waist alone is a critical factor for assessing the risk of premature death. In other words, by maintaining a healthy weight, you may be able to live a longer, healthier life.

Infrared Heat Technology
That’s where we come in with the Sunlighten brand of weight training: sauna weight loss. Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, our saunas – and only our saunas – are clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 study, our infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period. The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but “much more relaxing”.  Therefore, Sunlighten saunas can be an effective lifestyle advantage for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems.¹

In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories.² During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.³

Plus, regular use of a Sunlighten sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. That’s right, using Sunlighten for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – wherever and whenever you need it!

Pain Relief

Infrared Sauna Pain Relief

One of the most compelling reasons to purchase a Sunlighten sauna is the natural pain relief associated with infrared sauna therapy.

Sunlighten infrared sauna owners love to tell us about the pain relief properties of their sauna sessions. You too can toss the pain pills and step into one of our healing infrared sanctuaries to relieve tension and relax muscles. Sunlighten infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.

For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.

Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal.
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California

Studies on Sauna Pain Relief
A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery compared stretching in a Sunlighten mPulse full spectrum sauna compared to a typical training room environment.  Participants completed a series of hamstring stretches in random order with 48 hours separating the sessions.  Results showed that acute flexibility increased up to 3x in the mPulse sauna than without!  Benefits to the increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation. View study.

A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.1

Additionally, in a NASA study done by Dr. Whelan with near-infrared heat, determined that LED technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth from the inside.2 Sunlighten’s mPulse series–with its proprietary Solocarbon® Custom Spectrum™ heating technology–is the only sauna on the market that offers LED-based near infrared heat at this proven level.

Finally, a 2003 study conducted by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed that use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells to alleviate inflammation and reduce swelling, two key factors in easing bodily pain.3 Again, only mPulse’s heating technology is scientifically proven to deliver these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths.

Lower Blood Pressure

Backed by Clinical Research
Only Sunlighten saunas are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.

As part of a blood pressure therapy program, regular use of a Sunlighten infrared sauna is good for your heart! In the U.S. alone, one in three adults suffers from heart disease, stroke or some other form of cardiovascular disease in their lifetime. High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke.

Sunlighten Saunas Are Shown to Stabalize Blood Pressure
Only Sunlighten saunas have been clinically determined to provide one of the best, natural ways to lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.1

Additionally, a Japanese study published in the October 2008 issue of The Journal of Cardiologyexamined the clinical effectiveness and safety of infrared blood pressure therapy, as compared to standard therapies for patients with chronic heart failure. The report concluded that far-infrared sauna therapy is both safe and effective at improving clinical symptoms and cardiac function as well as decreasing cardiac size in chronic heart failure patients. Repeated infrared sauna treatments improved impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventive role for infrared sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Improved Circulation

Increased Blood Flow
Owning and using a Sunlighten sauna for infrared therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – whenever you need it!

As a health sauna, Sunlighten heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.1

The elevation in body temperature from Sunlighten sauna use also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. A cardio workout has never been so relaxing! Another benefit of improved circulation from Sunlighten sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity.

Oxygenation

“…the cardiovascular cleansing properties of Sunlighten saunas allow the circulatory system to have increased circulation and oxygenation while lowering blood pressure.”
-Dr. Rachel West

More health experts recommend Sunlighten saunas than any other because of proven effectiveness. Dr. Mark Hyman, New York Times bestselling author and editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed medical journal Alternative Therapies in Health & Medicine, owns a Sunlighten sauna and says, “Sunlighten saunas improve circulation, help with weight loss, balance blood sugar and improve detoxification.”

Sunlighten health sauna therapy supports a healthy, active lifestyle. For more information on the health benefits of the Sunlighten sauna line, or to purchase one of our far-infrared health sauna kits, please contact Sunlighten today!

Anti-Aging

Skin Purification

As part of a sauna skin therapy program, Sunlighten infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance.

Forego expensive cosmetic treatments that may have limited effects or questionable long-term safety. Instead, rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with Sunlighten’s leading infrared sauna therapy.

A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.1 Sunlighten’s Solocarbon 3-in-1 is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with near-infrared technology!

"I absolutely love it..."
Sauna skin therapy works! Our customers have spoken: “I have been using my Sunlighten sauna almost every day and I absolutely love it. I’ve noticed that my complexion is getting better. I’ve struggled with break-outs for as long as I can remember. Since using the sauna my face is looking so much better. It has a healthy glow and the fine lines on my face seem to be lessened too. My husband has started using it frequently and now my teenage son. His complexion looks great; makes me wish we had a sauna when I was a teen! – Eva B., satisfied customer

“As so many people reported, my Sunlighten sauna has changed the character of my skin. It is much suppler without having to add moisturizers. After just two sessions a girlfriend asked me what I been doing because my face looked so much smoother and younger (I have a lot of acne scarring, and it seems to have softened the appearance). Delighted and will continue to use! – Alyne H., satisfied customer

Sauna skin therapy is essential to well-toned, healthy, great-looking skin. For more information on the other health benefits of the Sunlighten sauna line, or to purchase one of our SoloCarbon far-infrared health sauna kits, please contact Sunlighten today!

Wound Healing

Near Infrared Wound Healing

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 can do this.

Skin plays a vital role in the protection of our bodies from the external environment. When broken, it is important repair it quickly to prevent infection or further problems. Saunas have not been able to provide the benefit of wound healing…until now.

Promotes Faster Cell Regeneration
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon 3-in-1 Infrared Spectrum is the only heater on the market capable of producing near infrared (NIR) light using LED technology. This is the same technology used in scientific research that concluded NIR therapy greatly enhances the wound healing process.

Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.4

Cell Health

Stimulates the circulatory system
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense.
Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells.
Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.

Heating technology can strengthen the immune system
Sunlighten’s research-backed near infrared heating technology can strengthen the immune system. In fact, a NASA study showed this same near infrared therapy, delivered by LEDs deep into body tissue, can quadruple cell health and tissue growth.1

Several studies have shown that LEDs (like those found in our mPulse saunas) stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.

A study done at the Medical College of Wisconsin demonstrated that LED-produced near infrared (NIR) helps promote cell health and regeneration.2 The LEDs in our Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heaters produce infrared in this same range.

A study from The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology concluded that LED near infrared (NIR) restores enzyme activity and reduces cell death by half.2

“Regardless of the extent of the injury, someone who regularly uses this type of sauna will recover faster…It doesn’t add additional stress to the body or the injury. It actually works with the body to heal.”
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California

According to The Doctor’s Prescription for Health Living, Sunlighten’s infrared heat is one of the best treatments for sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and other injuries associated with sports because it works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.

Medical Conditions

Are there any medical conditions that are contraindications for Infrared Sauna use?
Yes, please speak with your physician before use if you have any of the following conditions:
  •  Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
  • Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
  • Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.
  • Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
  • Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
  • Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
  • Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
  • Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
  • Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
  • Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
  • Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
  • Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.
  • Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
