Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the natural radiant heat emitted by the sun. It has the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is 100% safe and even used to warm premature babies. Picture yourself feeling the sun's rays on a warm day. That is what it is like to be in a Sunlighten™ sauna. This comforting heat warms you from the inside, for a deep and detoxifying sweat.
Infrared light is the basis for Sunlighten™ sauna therapy. Sunlighten's Solocarbon infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
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 to ten times more effective for detoxification. In a Sunlighten sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life, ridding your body of 20% toxins and 80% water! Conventional saunas only average 3% toxins and 97% water.
