National Physical Therapy Month (NPTM) is held each October and seeks to recognize the impact physical therapists have on people’s lives. Sunlighten salutes all of the physical therapists across the county who work tirelessly to help enhance their clients’ quality of life through mobility. We are pleased to work with a large group of physical therapists who combine physical therapy with infrared sauna use.
Research shows that pairing exercise and infrared sauna experience leads to greatly improved and increased joint mobility. Michele Olson, Ph.D., F.A.C.S.M., C.S.C.S., recently led a study looking at the effect of a full-spectrum infrared sauna on flexibility. The More >
Happy National Chiropractic Health Month! In addition to supporting this awareness month, Sunlighten is pleased to work with many health care providers, providing infrared saunas for their practices and clinics, and even for their personal use.

These professionals seek to help their patients not just with manipulations but also by providing nutrition counseling, exercise recommendations, lifestyle advice More >

By ensuring that people are able to make heart-healthy choices wherever they live, work and play, World Heart Day encourages us all to reduce our cardiovascular risk.
