I’m a long-time believer of infrared sauna therapy for natural healing and prevention. I own a Sunlighten sauna and use it regularly to maximize health benefits. I highly recommend Sunlighten infrared saunas because of the research on their proprietary infrared heaters. – Mark Hyman, MD Cleveland Clinic
Quantify Fitness is excited to provide clients access to our Sunlighten™ Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna, the only infrared technology backed by clinical data shown to reduce blood pressure, increase core temperature and aid in weight loss. It is also the #1 recommended sauna brand, and our favorite functional medicine doctor from the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Mark Hyman, recommends it to his patients. In his book, Ultrametabolism, he addresses the use of saunas as a means of practicing active relaxation to reduce stress and lose weight.
Surround your body with soothing infrared therapy that penetrates the body at the cellular level leaving you feeling light and vitalized. Our full-sprectrum infrared is the active ingredient that purifies the body, boosts energy and shrinks belly fat.
How Hot Will it Get?
The temperature in the sauna ranges between 120-160 F. This is a lot lower than a traditional sauna but as Dr. Michael A. Schmidt states: “Infrared saunas are being used by some doctors to stimulate the release of toxins from the bodies of their patients. They have found that a lower temperature infrared sauna taken for a longer duration is most beneficial with regards to detoxification. These low temperatures stimulate a fat sweat, which detoxifies the body by eliminating toxins stored in fat, as opposed to the high-temperature sauna (over 180 F), which encourages a water sweat.”
What is Infrared Light?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the natural radiant heat emitted by the sun. Picture yourself feeling the sun’s rays on a warm day. Or that feeling of warmth on your face when the sun comes out on a freezing cold 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.
Is Infrared Safe?
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.
Sunlighten vs. Traditional Saunas
Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat rays instead of steam, as is used in traditional saunas. Infrared gently heats the body from within instead of heating the air. It can penetrate the surface of the skin, which gives your body overall radiant warmth and provides 7-10x greater detoxification. Traditional heaters only heat the air, which can become extremely hot and uncomfortable in which to breathe.
Carbon vs. Ceramic Heaters
Sunlighten’s carbon-based heating technologies emit more infrared energy at a lower surface temperature. This leads to pain relief, better circulation, and more effective detoxification, among several other benefits. Also, there are no cold spots, as occur in saunas using ceramic rods.
Patented Solocarbon® and Solocarbon® 3-in-1
Solocarbon® is the most advanced and beneficial technology available. In fact, Solocarbon has been clinically shown to raise core body temperature nearly 3˚ in a 30-minute session. This is important because raising core body temperature is the catalyst for nearly all of the health benefits associated with infrared therapy. With the introduction of Solocarbon® 3-in-1, Sunlighten now offers a heating technology capable of delivering near, mid and far-infrared to more precisely target a myriad of personalized health concerns.
“If you want to live well, you need to use a Sunlighten™ sauna. An infrared sauna will help you maximize your metabolism, remove toxins, and reduce inflammation and soreness. An infrared sauna is a great secret to extraordinary physical health.”
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal, stay healthy and detoxify. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water, while in a conventional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Studies have shown an infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Sunlighten saunas showed a reduction in belly fat in just a 3-month period.
With the most effective Solocarbon® heat, we can deliver the ultimate therapeutic experience. Our sauna will help you relax in comfort with an invigorating sweat that will have you feeling stress-free with each session.
Clinical research on pain has shown evidence of heat responsive pain or HRP, which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be specifically treated with the use of infrared heat therapy including back pain, neck pain, and arthritis.
Blood Pressure Reduction
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon® heaters were shown in a clinical study by the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2005 to lower blood pressure from a 30-minute infrared sauna session three times per week.
Sunlighten saunas heat your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. Blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
A study showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity, and firmness.
Studies conducted by NASA concluded that near-infrared LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing, and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.
Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, which causes more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
