Have you got niggling aches and pains? Are you looking to help improve your complexion? Or are you looking for a great way to relax?

Then an infrared sauna may be for you.
Sunlighten saunas offer the latest in sauna technology. There are many reasons to start using an infrared sauna. But in this article we will outline five:
1) Detoxify the body
We are surrounded by thousands of toxins and pollutants in today’s society. To get a sweat deep enough to expel these toxins, infrared heat can be beneficial. By going deeper, the heat travels into the body at the cellular level.
2) Relaxation and stress relief
Are you looking for ways to rest and unwind?
The first thing people notice is the stress-relieving relaxing of the muscles. Tension melts away, and the deep penetrating warmth is soothing on aches and pains. With regular use you feel the benefits of a deep, healthy sweat that purifies your body and helps your circulation. After the first session, people often notice clearer skin and a deep, restful sleep.
Sauna time doesn’t have to be alone time, it’s also great to bring a friend or partner along to relax in good company.
The most advanced sauna, the mPulse, has an Android touchscreen with Wi-Fi capability. So if you don’t feel like disconnecting, you can browse the internet, watch Netflix or go on Facebook.
3) A deeper sweat at more comfortable temperatures
In contrast to traditional high-heat saunas, Sunlighten saunas are customisable, so you can enjoy a deep, detoxifying sweat at lower, more comfortable temperatures.
Like it hot? That’s fine too –now you have the choice.
Sunlighten infrared saunas are not required to run at high heat (60+). The ambient air temperature of the sauna is a personal preference. It has nothing to do with the efficacy of the infrared, which works best between 45 – 58 degrees.
4) Helps with aches and pains
The pain relief program (available in an mPulse sauna) uses a combination of near, mid and far infrared. Far and mid provides natural pain relief by helping with inflammation and swelling. While the near infrared penetrates surface tissue to assist with cellular repair. It also assists to relieve tension and promote relaxation.
A 2003 study by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed:
The use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells. This led to reduced inflammation and swelling, two key factors in easing pain 3.
The mPulse patented Solocarbon heating technology delivers these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths.
5) A General sense of wellbeing
A Sunlighten sauna is your personal retreat between work and home. A place for you to relax, unwind and feel reinvigorated.
