Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes. Perspiration is a natural way of expelling some of these toxins from the body.
Infrared saunas generate a sweat nearly 7 times more detoxifying than traditional steam saunas. Detoxification via infrared sauna therapy occurs by heating the body, directly increasing core temperature, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
Burn calories while you relax!
Studies show that one 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories. As the body works to regulate its core temperature, attempting to cool itself in response to the infrared heat, it experiences an increase in heart rate, metabolic rate and cardiac output, causing the body to burn more calories. In fact, a 2009 study showed that far infrared therapy to lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.

Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions.
Infrared wavelengths provide deep penetrating heat therapy to joints, muscles and tissues by increasing blood circulation and speeding oxygen flow to areas of discomfort.Infrared heat therapy is often recommend to patients with arthritis, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. Infrared therapy is also widely used among professional athletes to recover.
A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery showed that Sunlighten 3-in-1 treatments can increase flexibility up to 3x.
The removal of toxins from the body through perspiration is a key component to achieving healthy, radiant skin.
Our mPulse sauna is equipped with near-infrared LED lights that can improve skin tone, elasticity and firmness. Near infrared saunas provide the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone and texture. Many infrared sauna users have reported a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as improved skin tone and elasticity.
Near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth and may make scars less visible.
Circulation, Cellular, and Cardiovascular Health
Infrared sauna treatments are like giving your body a passive cardiovascular workout.
Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
Near infrared sauna therapy can also stimulates the circulatory system. 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.
The increased heart rate and cardiac output associated with infrared sauna therapy demonstrate how infrared sauna sessions also benefit the circulatory system. Studies indicate that regular use of an infrared sauna can potentially improve cardiovascular health. Our SoloCarbon heater are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
While there are many clinical and scientific studies conducted on the use of infrared sauna therapy throughout the world, the FDA has not evaluated the statements made throughout this website. infrared sauna therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. As with any type of treatment, results may vary. We always encourage our clients to consult their healthcare provider with before initiating any new wellness or fitness activity.
