What is Infrared?

Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, providing a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for Sunlighten sauna therapy. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where most toxins reside.

How safe is Infrared?  

Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is naturally occurring output of the sun that does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

  • Weight Loss: an infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories. The Sunlighten saunas showed a reduction in belly fat in just 3 months.

What is the difference between an infrared sauna and a traditional sauna?

Infrared heat saunas use heat instead of how traditional saunas use hot rocks or steam. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heats the body directly instead of simply heating the air, infrared saunas are seven times more effective for detoxification.
