Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue, thereby producing a host of anti-aging health benefits, making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” home therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, the benefits of an infrared sauna may be just what you need to achieve your wellness goals.
What Is the Difference Between Near and Far Infrared?
To begin with, infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue, producing health benefits like boosting your immune system. This natural occurrence in sunlight is the basis for all Sunlighten saunas. However, infrared light comes in several forms. Each form offers unique wellness perks that together provide a holistic approach to better mind and body.
Near infrared technology used in Sunlighten Infrared Saunas is similar to the infrared used in cosmetic and healing devices. The LED technology we use allows our heaters to produce consistent near infrared without extreme heat or light, making it a safe option. Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range and penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin. This is how near-infrared is able to impact your body at the cellular level, encouraging tissue growth, speeding up muscle recovery and strengthening your immune system.
Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Your sweat then pushes out the toxins, cleansing your body and rejuvenating your skin. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction and weight loss, along with a wide range of other health benefits
The Sunlighten mPulse series offers the full infrared spectrum, with seven presets available so you can sauna in a way that meets your exact needs.
