EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE
Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional: Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat instead of hot rocks or steam used in traditional saunas. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heats the body directly instead of simply heating the air, infrared saunas are seven times more
effective for detoxification. In a Sunlighten sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life.

The therapeutic effects of infrared saunas comes down to the electromagnetic radiation spectrum: Infrared radiation (IR) band covers the wavelength range of 750 nanometers to 100 micrometers, frequency range of 400 terahertz to three terahertz, and photon energy range of 12.4 milli-electron volts to 1.7 electron volts. What exactly does this mean? In the simplest terms, this results in infrared saunas causing heat and natural, positive radiation effects in the human body once it’s detected by the body’s thermoreceptors located in the skin.
FIR light waves are capable of altering cells, cell membranes, DNA/proteins and cell fluids, including and especially water molecules. At the cellular level, altered cell membranes and mitochondrial activity take place, which positively impact the metabolism. FIR photons are absorbed by the bonds in the body’s molecules, and the way that water functions within our cells is altered. FIR also has a “meso-structure” effect, where proteins within bodily tissues change in a way that’s important for overall biological activity.
Infrared lamps are capable of causing dramatic changes in body
chemistry in some instances, helping restore balance in some people who suffer from chronic problems related to pains, inflammation, low energy and poor circulation.
Infrared sauna treatments cause reactions in the body, including:
increased sweating (some people even report heavy or "vigorous sweating”
increased heart rate
the same type of clarity-of-mind feelings as moderate exercise
relaxation responses triggered by the body’s parasympathetic nervous system
