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.

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 >

Father’s Day is a great reminder to take some time out to pamper the men in our lives. And with men’s health issues becoming a growing concern in the U.S., it’s even more important for men to set aside time to exercise, eat right and manage their stress. Because men tend to internalize their stressors, stress and stress-related illness is of great concern, according to the WebMD article, Admit It Men, You’re Stressed. Webmd.com’s Stress Management Health Center goes on to explain that “Ongoing, chronic stress…can cause or exacerbate many serious health problems,” ranging from depression to sexual dysfunction to high blood More >
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and with more than 30,000 Americans contracting this disease each year, we at Sunlighten have a deep understanding of its devastating effects. In our work with those with Lyme disease, we have discovered that adding infrared sauna therapy to their treatment regimen helps in a variety of ways.
Lyme disease – caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi – is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged or deer ticks, and can have lifelong debilitating effects such as arthritis, fatigue and even neurological deficits. Sweating in the infrared sauna flushes fat-soluble toxins (including heavy metals) out of the More >

Today, up to one in every five people suffer from common hay fever, according to the UK’s National Health Service. And if you live in one of these “allergy capitals” in the U.S., you are likely already experiencing some symptoms.
Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to beat back the symptoms and relieve allergies that many of us are experiencing as spring weather arrives. According to CNN, a few good ways to combat spring allergies are:
- Start taking your antihistamine before your allergies are triggered.
- Keep your windows closed. If it’s time to turn on the air conditioner, change your air More >
If you’re anything like us, the change from winter to spring is wreaking havoc on your skin. Your body’s largest organ, the skin, works 24/7 to protect your body from the elements — and has to work hard to adjust to the sometimes daily highs and lows that come with springtime weather.
Fortunately, Sunlighten Infrared Saunas promote healthy skin year-round, whether you are seeking anti-aging effects, or general skin rejuvenation from the deep detoxification benefits produced by Sunlighten Infrared Saunas.
