Infared Sauna

Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health!
Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention through sweating. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissues which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the best alternative therapies for health and fitness. It heats the body directly at the core rather than simply warming the air. This results in in a deep, body cleansing detoxification at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.

Is Infrared Heat Safe?

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 a naturally occurring output of the sun but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. Infrared’s gentle heat is even used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

Use Our Saunas for:

Relaxation

Infrared Saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress – reduction. Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Stress impacts not just the mind but the body, as well.
Studies show that high levels of stress have great impact on the brain. From memory problems to anxiety to learning difficulties, the effects of stress on the mind are immense. Neuroscientists have shown that chronic stress can even cause differences in grey and white matter in the brain, as well as the size and connectivity of the amygdala. High levels of stress can even impact the amount of neurons found in the brain.
Relax and reduce mental stress! Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time is maximized with a sauna therapy session, giving you an opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day.

Detoxification

Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. Our sauna provides safest and most effective methods for detoxifying sweat using their saunas. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.
Researchers have analyzed the sweat produced in both traditional and infrared saunas. Sweat from traditional saunas was about 97% water and 3% toxins. Sweat produced in infrared saunas was 80-85% water. The remainder (15-20% of the perspiration) consisted of toxins such as heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, uric acid other fat-soluble toxins.

Pain Management

NASA study done by Dr. Whelan with near-infrared heat, determined that LED technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth from the inside.
Harmony Sauna sessions can help you to relieve tension and relax muscles. Infrared sauna heat 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.

Weight Loss

Harmony Infrared Sauna can help in weight loss protocols. Our saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. Maintaining a healthy weight is important to your overall quality of life. That’s no secret. In fact, a 10-year study published by The New England Journal of Medicine discovered that the circumference of your waist alone is a critical factor for assessing the risk of premature death. In other words, by maintaining a healthy weight, you may be able to live a longer, healthier life.

Cardiovascular Health

This healthy detox goes beyond just sweat. The increase in core body temperature from the infrared therapy improves circulation and reduces inflammation allowing the body’s natural systems to move toxins and waste out of the body. As the body is brought back into balance, your natural immune system and general vitality is restored.

Skin Purification

As part of a sauna skin therapy program, Sunlighten infrared saunas help restore skin to a youthful appearance.
Forego expensive cosmetic treatments that may have limited effects or questionable long-term safety. Instead, rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with Sunlighten’s leading infrared sauna therapy.
A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.

Blood Pressure

Regular use of our infrared sauna is good for your heart! Studies show a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart. In the U.S. alone, one in three adults suffers from heart disease, stroke or some other form of cardiovascular disease in their lifetime. High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke.

Cell Health and Immunity

Research-backed near infrared heating technology can strengthen the immune system. In fact, a NASA study showed this same near infrared therapy, delivered by LEDs deep into body tissue, can quadruple cell health and tissue growth.
Several studies have shown that LEDs stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth by increasing energy at the cellular level.
A study done at the Medical College of Wisconsin demonstrated that LED-produced near infrared (NIR) helps promote cell health and regeneration. A study from The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology concluded that LED near infrared (NIR) restores enzyme activity and reduces cell death by half.

Muscle Recovery

“Regardless of the extent of the injury, someone who regularly uses this type of sauna will recover faster…It doesn’t add additional stress to the body or the injury. It actually works with the body to heal.”
-Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California

According to The Doctor’s Prescription for Health Living, infrared heat is one of the best treatments for sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and other injuries associated with sports because it works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.
