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. We work with medical doctors, chiropractors, nutritionists, naturopaths, physical therapists, massage therapists and more.
While the health care professionals that we work with recognize the value in practicing complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments, chiropractors tend to find it particularly beneficial for their practices. These professionals seek to help their patients not just with manipulations but also by providing nutrition counseling, exercise recommendations, lifestyle advice More >
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign that seeks to educate and inform about the disease. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 1 in 8 women born today in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. The good news is that, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, early detection results in a 5-year survival rate of 98%.
Though breast cancer is the second-most common cancer in American women, many forget to take action to ensure early detection. We encourage all of you to share this blog More >

What is MTHFR?
MTHFR (short for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase), is a defective, or mutated gene that causes a wide range of health conditions and symptoms. Sadly, many with MTHFR are often misdiagnosed.

Sunlighten is celebrating World Heart Day, September 29, 2014, and we applaud the work of the World Heart Federation and the American Heart Association to help others create heart-healthy environments. 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.
In the U.S., many of us picture older men when thinking about cardiovascular disease. However, it can affect people of all ages and population groups, including women and children.
Cardiovascular disease – which includes heart disease and stroke – currently causes 17.3 million deaths every year, More >
High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke. Only Sunlighten infrared saunas are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.
Additional studies have regularly shown the positive impact that regular More >
