While the exterior design of an infrared sauna is important – and we here at Sunlighten are very proud of our beautiful wood and finishes – your inquiry can’t stop there. When shopping for an infrared sauna, you MUST consider the heater itself. The quality and efficiency of the infrared heat technology inside the sauna is paramount to achieving all of the health and wellness benefits you’re seeking.
There are a lot of differences between Sunlighten infrared saunas and the others on the market but the most important one is the actual heater. Our Sunlighten infrared saunas use cutting-edge Solocarbon® Heating Technology.

It’s that time of year again – congestion, cough, aches and more. Cold and flu season is here. Did you know that regular infrared sauna use can help strengthen your immune system, working to prevent colds and flu?Increased Circulation
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, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.

In a recent newsletter, Dr. Mark Hyman referenced a clinical study on near-infrared light that we thought you might like to know a little more about. The study, Photobiomodulation directly benefits primary neurons functionally inactivated by toxins: Role of cytochrome c oxidase¹, was published about five years ago in the Journal of Biological Chemistry (an academic medical journal published by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology).
Low-intensity light therapy, commonly referred to as “photobiomodulation,” uses light in the far-red (note that this is NOT far-infrared) to near-infrared region of the spectrum and changes some cellular functions.
The researchers believed that far-red and More >
One of our associates here at Sunlighten recently had her gallbladder removed by laparoscopic surgery. After her surgery, she ran a little experiment as her incisions healed – using near infrared (NIR) heat from an mPulse heater. Would near infrared heat therapy help her wounds heal faster and/or better?
Now, this was admittedly not a scientific experiment or clinical study but nonetheless, it was a case study with very interesting results!
The associate is a 32 year old female who received daily 80-second NIR treatments from a Sunlighten LED array on 3 wounds resulting from the removal of her gallbladder by laparoscopic surgery. More >
