Infrared Sauna

Research has shown infrared to provide healthy benefits such as enhanced metabolic function, improved circulation, detoxification of heavy metals, increased collagen production and decreased fatigue. We feature a top-of-the-line full-spectrum infrared sauna built with carbon heaters proven to be the most effective in the marketplace. The Infrared sauna has all three types of infrared light - near, mid and far rays - helping aid the body in healing.

What Are the Benefits

Detoxification

Detox in our sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In our sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water!

Pain Relief

Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Our Solocarbon heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a  preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Improves Circulation

Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.

Skin Purification

Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of our sauna. Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly

Weight Loss

A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed!

Relaxation

Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time is maximized with a sauna therapy session, giving you an opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day. 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. he more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.

The Different Type of Waves

Scientific studies have shown infrared to successfully treat many conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue and pain, digestion issues, and depression. Below we highlight the specific benefits of infrared light therapy, as well as key articles & studies from reputable sources.
Far Infrared

Far infrared light is an invisible frequency on the spectrum of light that our bodies perceive as a gentle radiant heat that penetrates up to 1.5`` below the skin's surface and raises body temperature by nearly 3 degrees Fahrenheit.</p> <p>Far infrared light can affect the formation of molecular bonds and improves health at a cellular level.</p> <p>The increase in core body temperature produces a deep, detoxifying sweat, lowers systolic and diastolic blood pressure and dramatically increases circulation throughout the body.</p> <p>Numerous studies have proven that far infrared therapy improves cardiac and vascular function, reduces oxidative stress, and is overall beneficial to heart health.</p> <p>Other benefits of infrared therapy includes decreasing cortisol (stress hormone), reducing fatigue and pain, boosting mood and endorphins, and treating diabetes and chronic illnesses.

Near Infrared

Near infrared light falls on the spectrum just beyond what is visible to the eye and is the shortest infrared wavelength.</p> <p>It has been used in cosmetic and wound healing devices for years - if you get a facial and they use light therapy, it is very similar.</p> <p>Scientists believe that light at this wavelength can quadruple cell health and boost tissue growth.</p> <p>Other benefits of near-infrared light include: boosted immune system, cell regeneration, collagen production, injury recovery, and pain relief.

Mid Infrared

Our Sunlighten saunas emit all three types of infrared light, including mid-infrared. They use a technology called Kapton polyimide, used in space applications, to tolerate the high heat required to produce mid-infrared wavelengths.</p> <p>Mid-infrared wavelengths penetrate the body's soft tissue where inflammation occurs and expands blood vessels to increase circulation.</p> <p>It also increases core body temperature and stimulates the cardiovascular system, simulating the cardiac output and metabolic rate increase of a vigorous walk or light jog.</p> <p>Benefits include reducing pain, increased healing speed and boosted circulation and heart health.

Backed by Science

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%.
