What is 3 in 1 Infrared Sauna Therapy? 

When you think of a sauna, you might think of an unbearably hot, steamy room. But infrared sauna therapy is a soothing, healthy heat that’s been clinically shown to be beneficial for your health. It’s the perfect complement to massage therapy. 

Infrared wavelengths are the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum consisting of near (NIR), mid (MIR) and far (FIR) rays. Our Sunlighten sauna offers all three peak wavelengths for the maximum therapeutic results. You experience a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where the majority of toxins reside. It’s now a widely recognized tool for natural healing and prevention.

Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy. 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 harmful UV rays. In fact, infrared’s gentle heat is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Choose from these 6 programs:

Detox

Starts at a high intensity to increases the body’s core temperature, then
reduces to a lower intensity level. Mid and far infrared combination
improves vascular access flow to reach toxins at the cellular level.

Cardio

Starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output, then
lowers to sustain heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote
healthy blood pressure.

Weight Loss

Starts at a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system, then
reduces to a medium level. As the body works to cool itself, there is an
increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, similar to exercise.

Relaxation

Far, mid and near-infrared combination induces deep relaxation as it
relieves muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall
stress reduction.

Anti-Aging

A low, constant intensity level penetrates tissue to help with various skin
concerns. Near infrared improves overall skin tone, elasticity, and
firmness, promoting anti-aging benefits.

Pain Relief

A far and mid-infrared blend provides natural pain relief by reducing
inflammation and swelling while near-infrared penetrates the tissue
promoting cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level.

Infrared Sauna FAQs

Who should not use the sauna?

If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

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.

Surgeries (For Solo Only): If you’ve had any abdominal surgery, c-section, tummy tuck or breast augmentation, consult your physician before using the Solo.

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.

In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.

What do I wear?

To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as possible. A bamboo carbon body wrap, cotton towel, gym shorts or swimsuit are perfect options.

How often should I use the sauna?

One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similar to exercise, the more you do it, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.

When will I start sweating?

Sweat levels differentiate between each individual. Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much. If you are hydrated properly and want a sweat boost, try our Pure Sweat amplifying cream. Pure Sweat can triple your sweat and increase circulation.

Do I need a Doctor’s note?

No, if you have health concerns we recommend speaking with your doctor before your sauna session.

Is the Infrared coming from lights?

No, infrared heaters are located on the floor, front, back and side wall panels.

Are there any studies on infrared therapy?

There are various studies on the use of infrared for a multitude of health benefits. Specifically, Sunlighten infrared saunas have been shown to increase core temperature for detoxification, lower blood pressure, relieve pain and aid in weight loss. These studies can be found on www.sunlighten.com.

Are children allowed to use the sauna?

The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. When taking a sauna session 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.

Is it ok to use the sauna while breastfeeding?

Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but may be no depending upon your specific circumstances.

Can I sauna while pregnant?

Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant, the core body temperature is already elevated and you could overheat.

Should I drink water?

Nowhere is sweat loss more pronounced than in the sauna. It’s crucial to hydrate with water and sodium before and after your session.  We provide electrolytes to add to your water bottle or cup of water during your sauna visit. 

SHOULD I SHOWER BEFORE OR AFTER?

Showering before arriving for your session is recommended if possible. Post sauna, a cool shower sheet is suggested to cleanse your skin of the toxins released during your session and assist in your cool-down phase.  We provide a single-use shower sheet for your use post-session.
