Infrared Sauna Health Benefits

Infrared saunas are associated with numerous health benefits to users. They are an effective tool for natural healing and health prevention. In addition, infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits.



Detoxification through sweating is a benefit associated with using an infrared sauna. Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy.  Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

According to Dr. Rachel West, “Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD, and ADHD.”



Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress – reduction. Our infrared sauna soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Stress impacts not just the mind but the body, as well.






Our infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.

Studies have shown that the 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.





Infrared sauna therapy is associated with natural pain relief. Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to aid in the relief of minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Infrared saunas are can be used in conjunction with treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.





Sunlighten infrared saunas include a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and helps circulation.

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.






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.







Sunglighten infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance. 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.







Sunlighten has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near-infrared LEDs. Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy gently 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.






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.
