Sunlighten Infrared Sauna

The sun emits a wide range of light, most of which we can’t actually see. Remember the first time you saw a prism transform light into a rainbow of visible light? Infrared is the invisible light just outside the prism next to red light, thus the name “infra (below)" + “red.” Sunlight is 52-55% infrared. It’s all the good parts of the sun’s healing light. Infrared has a range of waves in its own category. There are 3 types based on wave size, frequency, and the amount of energy they carry: near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR). Though tiny pinpoint-size waves, each infrared ray does something beautifully unique for our bodies, and nature.

Wellness is within reach because infrared’s healing light energy has been proven in many ways to help our bodies feel better. With gentler and more effective heat, Sunlighten’s infrared sauna benefits allow you to stay longer and reap more overall health benefits. 

Types of Energies



Sweating is good for you! It’s one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. Alternative medicine widely embraces sauna detox for treatment. Environmental toxins, including heavy metals, can hinder that, affecting energy, stamina, pain, insomnia, obesity, mental health and more. Perspiration, respiration and elimination are the natural ways our bodies expel the metabolic waste produced inside us. We can help our bodies get rid of and prevent build up through natural detox therapies that support the body’s natural detox work of the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin.

heart health


You want to take care of your heart. Good circulation is critical to your overall health. Infrared sauna sessions raise your heart rate and increase circulation. This replicates a cardiovascular workout we term “passive cardio.” Your heart is a muscle; working it makes it stronger. A stronger cardiovascular system helps capillaries deliver more oxygen to muscle cells. For people with injuries or conditions precluding them from cardio activity, Sauna sessions, as part of a healthy lifestyle, dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation needed for healthy blood pressure.

muscle recovery


Most people understand the benefits of exercise and training when trying to enhance performance or build muscle. In fact, that’s often the only thing they do. Equally important is the recovery process when energy is restored, and the body is able to heal tissue damage and rebuild muscles. Infrared light heats the body from within and penetrates the joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and blood flow. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of a strain or inflammation, which helps to create new blood vessels and tissues at the site. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to muscles, the quicker they rebuild.



Infrared saunas may help reduce acne and improve the appearance of acne scarring. Build-up of oil on the skin causes acne, and when your body produces a lot of oil it leads to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas stimulate sweat from infrared heat – not heated air – which can help clean out those clogged pores at the cellular level. Infrared saunas reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing environmental toxins. Collagen and elastin increase after exposure to infrared to enhance skin texture, lessen roughness, and improvement in color. Infrared increases circulation and delivery of oxygen to injured or damaged areas and helps with cell turnover, which aids the appearance of scars



Studies show stress impacts the brain, blood pressure, weight and immune system. It creates memory problems, anxiety and learning difficulties. Chronic stress can cause physical changes in grey and white matter, impact quantity of neurons and the size and connectivity of the amygdala. Stress problems make up 75 to 90% of all primary care doctor visits. Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.



Your body naturally defends itself. During a fever, body temperature rises and strengthens the immune system. It’s a signal to white blood cells and the body’s antiviral army of lymphocytes, neutrophils and interferons to come to the rescue. Increased body temp may also help fight infections as it stimulates heat shock proteins that deter viruses from reproducing and reduce inflammatory cytokine proteins. Raising body temp above normal for therapeutic treatment is called hyperthermia. Sunlighten infrared heating technology gives the highest quality and quantity of infrared, clinically proven to raise core body temperature by three degrees.



Our bodies regulate sleep through a complicated chemical process managed by our brain, activated by our circadian rhythm and sleep drive. When that process is disrupted, there are a lot of variables to consider and evaluate, including activity patterns; health issues like stress, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, depression, menopause, diabetes, etc.; and sleep hygiene factors such as room temperature, light reduction, regular bedtimes and wake times, etc.  Sleep  is governed by levels of adenosine, inflammation, and oxidative stress. Many people notice an effect on their sleep after they began using infrared sauna. Try it for yourself!

weight loss


A 2019 study compared participants’ cardiovascular effects in a sauna and on an exercise bike. The increase in heart rate was similar to a short, moderate workout. Researchers stated, "A sauna session is a physical strain. Its long-term positive effects are comparable to sports activities. We call it a “passive cardio workout.” Sauna therapy can release environmental toxins stored in fat tissues that can prevent  weight loss. Heavy metals and fat-soluble chemicals can trigger the body to protect itself, resulting in an inflammatory response. Infrared sauna therapy heats the body at the cellular level, helping to detoxify the body and reduce inflammation.
