What's an infrared sauna?

It's not a regular sauna, it's a cool sauna! At least, it's definitely cooler than a traditional steam sauna. Our top of the line infrared sauna uses a full spectrum of far, middle, and near infrared light wavelengths to directly penetrate your muscles and joints. The efficacy of an infrared sauna is based on infrared wavelength, not heat. It does get hot, but it is a tolerable dry heat. 

What is infrared therapy?

Infrared therapy is a new and innovative light-based method to treat pain and inflammation in various parts of the body. Unlike ultraviolet light, which can damage the skin, infrared light enhances cell regeneration. Infrared light is delivered to the site of injury or inflammation at specific wavelengths, promoting cell repair.

The key characteristic of infrared light is its ability to penetrate even the deep layers of the skin, providing better pain relief. Infrared light is safe, natural, non-invasive, and painless.

How does infrared affect my body? 

Infrared therapy is widely used in the fields of medicine and dentistry. High intensity infrared light from the Sunlighten MPulse can penetrate all the layers of skin, the layer of fat, and reach into the muscle tissue to deliver a therapeutic full body response to any kind of inflammation.

Infrared therapy is often offered as an alternative treatment for:

  • Wrinkles and aging skin
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes and diabetic wounds
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hair loss
  • Depression
