Infrared Sauna Therapy
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn.
Infrared saunas increase the body’s core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Conventional hot rock/steam heat saunas heat the air with steam, which can often be unbearably hot and will cause you to only sweat at the surface of the tissue. Steam also makes the air difficult to breath. An infrared sauna uses soothing dry infrared heat that is well ventilated and extremely comfortable and relaxing. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and skin rejuvenation.
CLINICALLY-BACKED FULL SPECTRUM BLEND PRECISELY TARGET HEALTH GOALS
Through extensive research we found that different parts of the infrared spectrum are more effective than others at targeting various health benefits. With this in mind, Solocarbon® Full Spectrum’s proprietary wavelengths were developed based on over 56 research studies for true health results.
- Cell Health/Immunity
- Wound Healing
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Pain Relief
- Pain Relief
- Improved Circulation
- Weight Loss
- Weight Loss
- Blood Pressure Reduction
Increasing the core body temperature is critical in achieving superior detoxification results. Solocarbon® heaters were tested and shown to consistently increase core temperature by a 3 degrees Fahrenheit rise in core temperature and increase heart rate over a 60 minute session (30 minute heat up and 30 minute cool down cycle).
You can be exposed to infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. The same electrical standards required for the safety of your home are implemented into the electrical system of our saunas. Steel conduits protect your sauna from fire hazard and harmful electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation.
Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. One of far infrared light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only stops the UV (Ultraviolet) light from hitting your skin. The far infrared heat (Far infrared light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth.
Infrared waves, reflected from the Sunlighten sauna to the body, provide concentrated radiant energy, similar to that from the sun. When any tissue in the body is exposed to infrared waves, whether radiated by sunlight, reflected by specially coated fabrics or panels, there is a rapid increase in warmth which can be shown by thermography. This heat plus the activation of several other response mechanisms stimulates the healing processes. For example, infrared waves from Sunlighten saunas:
- Increase blood flow by promoting dilation (expansion) of the micro-circulatory system of Capillaries.
- Reduce muscle spasms as muscle fibers are heated.
- Remove toxins from the site receiving infrared waves.
- Assist in the reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow.
- Reduce soreness through direct action on both free nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves.
At the cellular level, researchers have discovered the infrared wavelengths between 7 and 14 microns (the same as all Sunlighten saunas):
- Stimulate enzyme activity.
- Promote the adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane.

All humans send and receive Far infrared waves. The range of waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7 and 14 microns which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. This similarity makes sense since our bodies are almost 70% water. This range, sometimes called “Vital Rays” appears to have special regenerative effects on the body.
The result of Sunlighten heater designs allows for better performance well within this vital wave range of 7 to 14 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4–which is the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins such as mercury, aluminum, cholesterol and other toxic gases such as sulfur and formaldehyde. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of Far infrared heat, which improves pain relief, detoxification, circulation, and increased peripheral blood flow.
Acoustic Resonance Therapy
Experience a full-body, musical massage, as the vibrations of soothing music resonate throughout your sauna session to induce deep relaxation.
SO Sound® combines the healing effects of sound and vibration to harmonize all systems of the body bringing you to a deeper state of relaxation.
Attached at specific locations in the sauna, the SO Sound® system uses an amplified audio signal to resonate sound waves to the surface of the sauna. Listening to soothing music and feeling it resonate throughout the body stimulates the body’s natural relaxation response. It feels like light touch massage during your sauna session.
Add an acoustic layer of pleasure to your Sunlighten sauna session. Experience a full body musical massage as the vibrations of your favorite music resonate throughout your sauna to induce deep relaxation. This ground-breaking technology is the heartbeat within session. SO Sound Therapy delivers sound waves to create a musical massage that harmonizes all systems of your body. The SO Sound System uses an amplified audio signal to resonate waves to the surface of your sauna.
Listening to music and feeling it resonate make you more aware of the tensions in your body. Coupled with musical harmonic resonance, your body’s natural response relaxes stressed muscles and joints. As your bones resonate with the calming vibrations, nero-pathways to the brain are activated, helping you achieve a more-focused state of mind and balanced heart rate. The benefits of SO Sound Therapy include:
Muscle relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation, reduction in chronic stress and lowered blood pressure.
Experience a musical massage in your Sunlighten sauna session.
Imagine how you feel right after a massage. You are completely relaxed, your tension is gone, and you have freed your mind.
SO Sound feels like a musical massage letting you enjoy the caress of your favorite music, and sending you on a journey of rejuvenation, relaxation, and well-being.
A subwoofer generally is a low frequency audio driver that is complementary to speakers and is designed to produce audio (sound in the air). The SO SoundHearts® are a completely different addition to an audio sound system because they add tactile (what you feel) elements from the music/sound.
While the SO Sound system can deliver any music, some resonates better than others. For example, music that has been highly processed or compressed in order to fit more music onto an iPod, MP3 players, etc…. will not resonate as strongly as well balanced acoustic music.
There is significant research indicating over 90% of all disease is caused by stress. In today’s society most of us have forgotten how to relax. This is simply a tool to help you quickly, safely and easily relax, engaging your body and mind’s own natural healing abilities.
- Enhancing creativity and problem solving
- Releasing old negative thought patterns and habits
- Reducing stress
- Inducing deep rest and relaxation
Enjoy the healing benefits of light and color with Chromotherapy in your Sunlighten sauna session. Establish natural balance and enjoy the healing benefits of light and color with Chromotherapy in your Sunlighten sauna session.
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Humans need the sun’s light, which is broken into seven distinct rays, to live. If there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, it can manifest itself in mental or physical distress. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a separate bodily need.
