What is Infrared Therapy?
Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissues in such a way that it produces a host of benefits. 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.
“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” -Dr. Rachel West
Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, spinal injuries (bulging/herniated discs), nerve pain (pinched nerves/Sciatica/Neuropath), and sport injuries. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.
You will feel totally relaxed while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. 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!
Our mPulse Conquer Sunlighten Infrared Sauna induces a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using a Sunlighten Infrared Sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure, improves impaired blood vessel function, as well as diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid infrared range – can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.

The near infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles, produce an overall radiant skin tone radiant, firm and improve skin tone and elasticity.
The far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.
Scientific research has concluded that near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth. In turn, this increase in human cells growth helps to repair wounds and prevent infection.
Near infrared light therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenates the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
