Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy

  • Healthy Weight Loss
  • Pain Relief
  • Detoxification
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Chronic Fatigue/Seasonal Mood Disorder/Depression
  • Stress Relief and Relaxation
  • Beautification of the Skin
  • Sinus and Chronic Ear Infections


Healthy Weight Loss

  • Cellulite Reduction
  • Burn 300 to 900 Calories
  • Increase Metabolism for 12 Hours
  • Increase Energy Level

As much as 300 to 900 calories are burned during one short sauna session of 20 – 30 minutes by sending more blood to the capillaries converting fats and carbohydrates. Although weight loss from perspiration (water loss) is quickly regained through water hydration, the calories are not.

Many people who have unsuccessfully tried many diets often find success with an infrared sauna because it eliminates chemicals stored in the fat cells. This makes safe weight loss much easier. Infrared saunas assist safe weight loss by reducing heavy metals directly related to metabolic imbalances in the body which cause improper digestion and weight gain. Fat stored toxins are also decreased with infrared sauna use.

Experience a noticeable reduction of pain and swelling in just a few sessions! Sauna therapy is an ancient treatment for pain relief. It has an extensive history and is an important part of the healing process, treating patients diagnosed with many forms of arthritis.

People suffering from bursitis, Fibromyalgia, back pain, headaches, sprains, rheumatoid arthritis and other muscular-skeletal ailments have successfully used Sauna therapy for pain relief.

An infrared sauna elevates your core temperature dilating the capillaries, arterioles, and venues’. During this deep heating process your muscles, joints, and soft tissue experience relief and healing. Boosted blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products, transporting oxygen rich blood to depleted muscles and joints.

Infrared energy released by an infrared sauna penetrates 1.5″ to 2” deep into muscle tissue. Our skin absorbs 93% of infrared energy. Heating these tissues relieves pain via reduction of attendant or secondary muscle spasms.

Evidence suggests when used 24-48 hours post injury, infrared energy reduces the recovery time of sprains and strains. Pain related to ischemia from tension or spasm can be improved by the hyperthermia produced by heat-induced vasodilatation, thus breaking the feedback loop which lead to further spasm and pain.

Saunas increase heart rate and blood circulation, detoxify the body in unique and important ways. Saunas accomplish detoxification in the following manner: A layer of fat and oil exists just below the the skin’s surface. The sauna’s infrared heat increases skin temperature, causing those fats and oils to “melt” out of the skin’s oil glands. As sweat and oil are secreted, the toxins dissolved in them are secreted as well. By excreting these toxins your toxic load is lowered and cellular health improves.


Cardiovascular Health

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Hypertension
  • High / Low Blood Pressure
  • Circulatory Issues
  • High Cholesterol

Maintaining blood pressure levels within a normal range eases your heart and blood vessel’s workload. We empower ourselves when maintaining healthy blood pressure and a healthy heart. Infrared saunas are a promising therapy for people who are otherwise incapable of exerting themselves or do not follow an exercise or conditioning program to attain cardiovascular training.


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Seasonal Mood Disorder/Depression

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is often characterized by a deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals.  Often, the end result is an excessive accumulation of mercury and other toxic heavy metals in various organs of the body.

The positive infrared energy provided by natural sunlight as well as infrared saunas are often prescribed to treat seasonal mood disorders and depression by providing the vitamins needed to give them the mental, hormonal, and emotional adjustment they may lack.


Stress Relief & Relaxation

You will experience increased circulation triggering endorphin release and loosening tight muscles. When we are stressed we actually tense our muscles as we hurry through our day or worry about outcomes. Holding tension in our bodies works as a heavy weight of premature aging. We burden our nervous system, muscle tissue, cardiovascular, respiratory, and our elimination system with our relentless stress level, fast paced diet, and irregular sleep patterns.


Beautification of Skin

Age shows on our face, every time we look in the mirror we want to rewind the clock and look youthful and vibrant. When you use an infrared sauna, you notice a softer, smoother you.

Many clients report improved skin tone, texture, and elasticity.  By sitting in an infrared sauna, the increased blood circulation to the skin brings fresh nutrients to the surface. At the same time, sweating assists toxin removal of accumulations deep within your pores from make-up, dirt, lotions, and conditioners. Many clients enjoy sitting in the sauna prior to a facial to open up their pores.


Sinus Problems/Chronic Ear Infections

Infrared Sauna therapy sessions open nasal passages,  assisting the sinuses in drainage and preventing infections to the middle ear.


Chromotherapy or Light Therapy

Our saunas also are paired with Chromotherapy or Light Therapy!  Research is showing what ancient science already knew: chromotherapy has a powerful effect on internal muscles, organs, the nervous system, mood, hormones and more. Chromotherapy affects every cell in the body. Several different colored lights are used in order to optimize the energies that flow from the various chakra centers in the body. Light therapy is utilized to restore the right vibrational energies at each center, to balance bodily functioning, to eliminate disease, and to bring harmony to the physical body and emotions. This, together with the other infrared sauna benefits, makes far infrared sauna use a powerful health maintenance system.

If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:

Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.

Medications – Individuals who are taking any medications should seek the advice of their personal physician.

Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.

Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.

Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.

Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.

Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.

Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.

Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.

Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.

Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.

Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.

Surgeries (For Solo Only): If you’ve had any abdominal surgery, c-section, tummy tuck or breast augmentation, consult your physician before using the Solo.

Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers.

Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.

In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.

To enable infrared to penetrate tissues as deep as possible, we recommend wearing as little as possible. A cotton towel, gym shorts or swimsuit are perfect options.

One session will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But similar to exercise, the more you do it, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.

Sweat levels differentiate between each individual. Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use. Even if your body is not drenched in sweat, your body is still detoxifying from harmful toxins. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before your session. If you are dehydrated, you will not sweat as much.

No, if you have health concerns we recommend speaking with your doctor before your sauna session.

No, infrared heaters are located on the floor, front, back and side wall panels.

There are various studies on the use of infrared for a multitude of health benefits. Specifically, Sunlighten infrared saunas have been shown to increase core temperature for detoxification, lower blood pressure, relieve pain and aid in weight loss. These studies can be found on

The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. When taking a sauna session with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15-minutes at a time. A general rule of thumb is 1 minute inside your sauna per year of age for the child, but always accompanied by an adult. And remember to keep you and your children hydrated, even if you don’t see them sweating.

Please consult with your physician, as this answer is usually yes, but may be no depending upon your specific circumstances.

Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant. While pregnant, the core body temperature is already elevated and you could overheat.

Nowhere is sweat loss more pronounced than in the sauna. It’s crucial to hydrate with water and sodium before and after your session.  We provide electrolytes to add to your water bottle or cup of water during your sauna visit. 

Showering before arriving for your session is recommended if possible. Post sauna, cloths are provided to cleanse your skin of the toxins released during your session.
