Physical therapist, chiropractors, and doctors are using infrared daily in hospitals and clinics. Some of the benefits of infrared saunas are healing of skin conditions, increase flexibility and help heal the body. Infrared is so save that it is even used in hospitals to keep the newborn babies warm.
Near, middle and far-infrared wavelengths are part of the broad healing wavelength spectrum. The wavelengths penetrate soft tissue, warming the body and opening the blood vessels. This process is called vasodilation.
Infrared saunas also help with the following:
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s patented heating technology, which aids in cell health and overall immunity. Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health and strengthen the immune system.
Raising core body temperature is key. Although saunas heat you up differently than a fever, the increased body temperature provides the same benefits, including white blood cell and T-cell production to ward off viruses. Sunlighten saunas are the only ones to have been proven to raise core body temperature by 3 degrees.
An Austrian study of 25 healthy subjects who regularly used saunas found they had significantly fewer episodes of common colds than those who did not. This benefit becomes more significant, especially after 14 weeks of consecutive sauna use. To fully experience the immune-strengthening benefits of a sauna, it’s recommended to use it at least twice a week throughout the year.
Advanced Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heating technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring through the use of near-infrared LEDs. Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.1
Far infrared saunas are more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion is cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, sulfuric acid, toxic heavy metals, sodium, ammonia, and uric acid.2 Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to maintain good health and heal. 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 the 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.” – Dr. Rachel West
Saunas have proven to assist in weight loss by heating of your core temperature to induce sweating. Infrared sauna increase blood flow and heart rate, much like moderate exercise, has shown to help weight loss. Saunas also aid in weight loss by easing pains and aches associated with weight training, helping you bet back to the gym sooner.
The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, completed a study that showed significant improvements in skin appearance just 12 weeks after sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in crow's feet and wrinkles, as well as an improved overall skin tone, including, smoothness, elasticity, softness, clarity, and firmness. Infrared sauna also helps with acne, skin detoxification, and skin tone and texture.
Infrared therapy helps soothe your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but relax 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.
Sunlighten infrared sauna owners love to tell us about the pain relief properties of their sauna sessions. You too can toss the pain pills and step into one of our healing infrared sanctuaries to relieve tension and relax muscles. Sunlighten 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.
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.
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
To begin with, infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits like boosting your immune system. Naturally occurring from the sun, it is the basis for all Sunlighten™ saunas. Infrared light also comes in several forms. Each form offers unique wellness perks that together provide a holistic approach to better mind and body. Learn about how near-infrared differs from far-infrared, and how each benefits you.
Near infrared technology used in Sunlighten Infrared Saunas is similar to the infrared used in cosmetic and healing devices. The LED technology we use allows our heaters to produce consistent near infrared without extreme heat or light, making it a safe option for near infrared use. Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range and penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin. This is how near-infrared is able to impact your body at the cellular level, encouraging tissue growth, speeding up muscle recovery and strengthening your immune system.
Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Your sweat then pushes out the toxins, cleansing your body and rejuvenating your skin. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction and weight loss, along with a wide range of other health benefits.
Mid-infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process. To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full-spectrum, the material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR.
