Sunlighten is the only sauna on the market to provide all three infrared wavelengths in one place.
Proven 99% efficient across all wavelengths for optimal health benefits
Advanced LEDs provide true near infrared at a consistent output for cell rejuvenation and anti-aging
High power near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths – a prime indicator of sauna quality
Emissive coating produces more infrared per square inch over any other sauna
All saunas must be covered as a standard safety hazard precaution. Sunlighten provides non-toxic and highly emissive carbonized bamboo as a protective cover on our Solocarbon® heating technology, having our guests’ ultimate comfort & safety in mind!
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue.
And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. mPulse saunas got their name because the LED pulsate for optimal benefits.
Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process. To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR.
Sunlighten works with engineers and scientists to source a high tech material made to withstand the temperature required.
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. The wavelength hits the skin and heats the body through a process called conversion; this radiant heat is the same as the heat from the sun.
Sunlighten has achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating and have applied that same coating to our polyimide panel. Instead of being sandwiched between layers, the coating is on the exterior of the heating panel. During the testing process, Sunlightnen discovered this application makes it 99% emissive!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna?
There are more benefits with and Infrared Sauna vs. a Steam Sauna. Studies show that the sweat from an Infrared Sauna is more dense in with toxins than a standard steam sauna.
Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
Lower Blood Pressure
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.
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows using the infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
One of the most compelling enjoy our sauna is the natural pain relief associated with infrared sauna therapy. Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
Give yourself a passive cardio workout – whenever you need it! Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid infrared range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Our sauna is designed so that the skin on your entire body will benefit from a sauna therapy session. The near infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Full Spectrum infrared heating technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near infrared LEDs. No other sauna can offer these health benefits. Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increases to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity
Near infrared light therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates 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.
Is an Infrared Sauna Safe to use?
Yes, because it is the same natural heat from the sun. However, there are no adverse effects like sunlight. Far Infrared saunas do not emit harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays. In some hospitals, newborn babies are kept warm by using Infrared heat. Please consult your Health Professional before using the Sauna with any medical concerns.
What is the difference between an Infrared Sauna and Hot Rock (Steam) Sauna?
In a Steam Sauna heat is first created by a method of heating stones to a high temperature, then water is poured on the stones to create Steam. The Steam then heats the air which consequently heats the body. Typical temperatures in a Steam Sauna are 170 to 190 Degrees Fahrenheit and can be uncomfortable over a period of time. Infrared saunas heats the body directly and operates at lower temperatures, typically 110 to 130 Degrees Fahrenheit, which is more comfortable, uses less power to heat, and allows you to endure a longer sauna session and sweat more.
