Infrared Sauna Therapy
Detox, Burn Calories, Relax, Relieve Unwanted Pain, Increase Your Circulation, and Purify Your Skin.
What is Infrared Sauna Therapy?
We use the best-infrared sauna equipment available from Sunlighten™
to maximize the health benefits and heighten your experience with infrared sauna therapy.
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for sauna therapy.
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.
Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Saunas
Our saunas use infrared heat instead of hot rocks or steam used in traditional saunas. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heats the body directly instead of simply heating the air, infrared saunas are seven times more effective for detoxification. In our sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life.

Sweating is the body’s natural way of eliminating toxins and plays a critical part of body detoxification.
Stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and reduce pain and inflammation after strenuous exercise.
Relieve muscle aches or joint pain caused by inflammation by relaxing your muscles and increased circulation.
Raising your core temperature can lead to the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising and burn calories.
Infrared Sauna therapy helps relax muscles, relieve tension and aids in balancing your body’s cortisol levels.
Clearer, healthier and softer skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation.

“With clinically-backed infrared heaters, saunas aid in detoxification, blood pressure reduction, weight loss, pain relief, and skin purification. Saunas made of non-toxic materials, comfort, and use, these infrared saunas are the preferred choice for treatment of Lyme disease, autism and other chronic conditions for lifetime use.”
“In today‘s world where we are all exposed to toxins in the air and water, as well as through medications, vaccines, and dental work, it is vital to integrate a detoxification regimen into one’s daily life. Infrared saunas are a non-toxic, no side-effect way of ridding the body of harmful pollutants, especially heavy metals.
Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently. Detoxification has also been proven to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.”
Infrared Sauna Therapy FAQs
What is an infrared sauna?
When using the infrared sauna, infrared light penetrates the body at a deeper cellular level creating heat, resulting in whole-body hyperthermia to make you sweat. Instead of using steam it uses safe infrared light.
What’s the Difference Between Infrared Saunas and Traditional Saunas?
Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day and feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas–which operate at well in excess of 200°F–infrared heat has the benefit of being effective at a more comfortable operating temperature of 100°-150°F.
Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly. Rather than inducing detoxification and relaxation, this can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas at detoxifying the body. By raising the body’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.
How long is a typical session? And how often can I take a session?
Most people do 30-45 minute sessions, 3 -4 times a week, but it is safe to use every day.
How Safe is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
I’m Taking Prescription Medications, Can I Use an Infrared Sauna?
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. 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.
Does infrared heat interfere with implants (metal, silicone, etc.)?
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
Should I be concerned with the output of electromagnetic field (EMF) from your saunas?
No, the EMF levels of our infrared saunas are well below the threshold of what is generally considered safe. In fact, our saunas produce less EMF than a standard hair dryer. If you are concerned at all about EMF, the canceling technology found in our mPulse saunas reduces EMF to our lowest level yet.
