Internal Wisdom offers the unique and highly beneficial infrared sauna experience offered by Sunlighten. 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 infrared sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life.
Detox from a Sunlighten™ sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than a
conventional sauna. In a conventional sauna the average person sweats out
3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out
20% toxins and 80% water!
Relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain with infrared sauna heat therapy.
Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable
therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower
back and upper body pain, and all conditions that fall under the HRP
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the
body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial
increase in heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Sunlighten’s infrared
heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular
conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase
circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you
will be amazed!
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
Our Solocarbon® heaters were used in a clinical study with the University
of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure
from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated infrared
treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood
pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for
sauna use for atherosclerosis.
Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level
similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also
produces an increase in blood flow. The increased peripheral circulation
provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end
inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.
Improve your skin’s appearance with regular use of a Sunlighten
sauna. Open wounds heal more quickly with reduced scarring. Infrared heat
therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and any skin lesions or cuts. It
also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone
and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the
skin and lessen the appearance of scars.
