A weakening of the immune system is one of the many physiological effects of long-term stress. Stay healthy by taking advantage of the natural preventative properties of infrared sauna.
Infrared heating technology aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. Heat charges the immune system by promoting blood flow/oxygenation and increasing lymphatic drainage. This slows the multiplication of viruses and bacteria in the body aiding in the prevention of illness and infection. Infrared can stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.
Infrared sauna heat therapy works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten® infrared sauna therapy because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Pain-and-inflammation protocol: Use the Infrared sauna two times per week for six weeks.
Sweating is good for you. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. And that’s why our Full Spectrum Infrared sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat. The sweat produced while detoxing with Infrared saunas have been tested to show 20% toxins vs. the sweat tested from traditional sauna use at only 3%. That's almost 7 times more detoxing power with an infrared detox.
Detoxification protocol: Utilize the Infrared sauna two to three times per week.
According to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories.² During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.³
Weight-loss protocol: The Infrared sauna should be used three times per week for eight to twelve weeks

Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.
According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – as well as many other health professionals – the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.
Scientific evidence also shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, Sunlighten® saunas, specifically have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
Ongoing regular use is ideal
Chromotherapy or Color Therapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms.
Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can actually be broken down into a seven color spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Color therapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light, each color addressing a distinct need.
Color and light have been utilized by healers for thousands of years. Color therapy possibly has roots in Indian medicine (Ayurveda), ancient Egyptian culture and traditional Chinese healing.
Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy often relate the seven colors of the color spectrum to specific body areas..
Color therapy has been practiced throughout the world for centuries, and remains one of the most popular Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies available.
