The Sauna Experience

Relax and Feel the Heat

The use of sauna for detoxification and relaxation has been utilized by many different cultures throughout history. Saunas are common in Scandinavian countries, Roman and Ottoman empires and Russia.


Infrared versus Traditional Saunas

In traditional sauna heated rocks and steam warm up the air, which can become extremely hot and uncomfortable making it hard to breathe.

Infrared saunas work differently. The far, mid and near infrared light waves penetrate deep into the muscle tissue working on a cellular level. This provides a much better detox than a traditional sauna. You will feel less hot and breathing is much easier than a traditional sauna.

The infrared heater emits light, which is experienced as heat. It is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin, which gives your body overall radiant warmth that heats from inside out rather than outside in.

In our Sunlighten sauna you’ll experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life. Your health is calling!

Why is Sauna beneficial?

The high temperature of sauna causes vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, producing an effect similar to the physiological response elicited by moderate exercise. When core temperature and heart rate are elevated, the body is forced to work hard to bring system back to balance. After just a few minutes in the sauna, you begin to sweat, your blood vessels dilate, circulation improves, cardiovascular function and metabolism are boosted, endorphins are produced and your immune response is stimulated.

How safe is Infrared?

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 harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight. In fact, infrared heat is so safe it is used in hospitals and incubators to warm newborn infants.
