Why I Love Infrared Saunas

1024 683 Lauren Kennedy

My friend introduced me to infrared saunas about a year ago, and I have been hooked ever since. There is a spa near my house in California that I try to go to monthly to get the benefits of this therapy, and we actually just purchased the mPulse Believe for the home we are moving into in a few months, so I will be sitting in it 3-4 times a week for maximum benefits.

What is infrared?

Infrared is the invisible part of the sun’s light spectrum (experienced as heat) consisting of three parts: near, mid and far. Infrared is therapeutic because it penetrates human tissue producing a host of health benefits. The heat it creates in the body causes you to sweat and release stored toxins.

Far infrared (FIR) is the longest wavelength and reaches deepest into the body where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, FIR stimulates the sweat glands, resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized. Plus, since sweating increases heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate, you’re also burning calories.

Mid infrared increases circulation, helps reduce inflammation that has accumulated within the joints and helps reduce pain caused by inflammation. Increased circulation also helps with healing by assisting with the delivery of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the injured area.

Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest and the hottest wavelength.Don’t be drawn into the so-called NIR halogen bulbs sold online.  They are unbearably hot and not effective. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are the best source for NIR.

If you desire to purchase an infrared sauna for your house, be sure to verify that 100% non-toxic materials are used inside and out. I did heavy research on what brand to buy, and Sunlighten blew all of them out of the park! Only Sunlighten saunas are medical-grade, clinically backed and proven 95-99% effective. This is why Sunlighten is used and recommended by more health experts and consumers over any other sauna brand. Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters contain a proprietary blend of FDA-approved materials and are heat-sealed to withstand temperatures above and beyond the operating temperature to ensure no unhealthy gases are released during heating. Plus, extensive third-party testing has been conducted to ensure that all of their materials are safe and non-toxic.

This month (Heart Month), Sunlighten is teaming up with the American Heart Association by donating to their “Life is Why” campaign. Only Sunlighten saunas are clinically shown to lower blood pressure with regular use. That is why helping healthy hearts has become a such a big part of Sunlighten’s culture. Mention my name for an additional $200 off the sale price of any sauna until 2/21.
