Our Sunlighten mPulse Infrared Sauna delivers near, mid and far infrared wavelengths to maximize your healing and help expel toxins from the inside out. At Body Alchemy our clients love to add a sauna session following their Colon Hydrotherapy or Assisted Lymphatic Therapy treatments to help further their detoxification, or before a massage to help warm their muscles.
Infrared light therapy offers many stand-alone health benefits and pairs well with a variety of our services at Body Alchemy
Sweating is the body’s natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared sauna therapy is beneficial for natural healing and prevention because of its ability to penetrate human tissue resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat. It is known to assist with sleep, detoxification, immunity, heart health, muscle recovery, weight management, anti-aging and relaxation. Many sauna users experience relief from conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and neck and back pain because it warms and relaxes joints and muscle tissue.
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. It is the same heat used in hospitals to warm premature babies. SoloCarbon® heating technology, found exclusively in our mPulse® sauna from Sunlighten®, is the most proven, effective infrared heater on the market, giving you all three infrared wavelengths (near, mid and far), plus red light, in the exact mix you need for specific health benefits.
Detoxify. Relax. Rejuvenate.
Benefits of Sauna
Sweat Out The Toxins
Sunlighten saunas, with the deepest infrared penetration, can help increase blood flow and perspiration. Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health by helping to eliminate toxic heavy metals, drug residues, and hormone disruptors.
Increase Metabolism & Burn Fat
Sunlighten’s specific red light/near infrared wavelength stimulates sluggish metabolism and improved fat burning for energy. Increasing core body heat can increase calorie burn, similar to exercise. Infrared saunas also help with the elimination of toxins that cause fat storage.
Improve Heart Health
Infrared therapy can help your heart work better by exercising the heart, reducing blood pressure, and improving circulation.
Reverse Aging & Renew Skin
Sunlighten’s red light/near infrared LEDs has been shown to increase collagen and elastin, improving overall skin appearance. Increased circulation also contributes to faster cell regeneration, which helps with appearance of scars.
Boost The Immune System
Heating the body from inside can improve the function of the immune system just like fever can. Therefore, regular Sunlighten sauna use can help reduce the incidences of cold and flu, and even help you recover faster.
Repair Muscles Faster
Many professional athletes use Sunlighten saunas to recover from their training and injuries. Sunlighten’s mid infrared spectrum can best penetrate joints and improve flexibility. Far infrared therapy is known to help with muscle soreness, whereas near infrared helps with tissue regeneration.
How do I prepare for my session? Hydrate with a minimum of 8 ounces of water before your sauna session, we recommend bringing a water bottle that you can refill with our Berkey water here at the studio.
What do I wear? You can wear whatever you are most comfortable in. We recommend wearing as little as possible so the infrared can penetrate deep into the body without any restrictions. Some prefer to wear underwear or a bathing suit while others relax in their birthday suit- you will have full privacy so do whatever feels best for you. We do recommend bringing loose fitting clothing for after your session as you will continue to sweat.
What do I need to bring? We offer towels to use during your session, but if you are more comfortable bringing your own, please feel free! We also offer Berkey water post session- but do recommend bringing a water bottle to refill to stay adequately hydrated.
How long is a session? We offer 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions. With our Sunlighten Smart Sauna, you are in control of your wellness. The heating technology developed by Sunlighten is one of a kind. Each wavelength requires a different complex equation involving surface size, surface temperature and material. Sunlighten’s patented heaters allow for all three wavelengths (near, mid and far), plus red light, to be recreated in one place. The six pre-set programs direct the heaters to emit the optimal blend of infrared wavelengths – based on 56 data points from 37 studies of how infrared interacts with the body – to achieve the desired result. This is customizable, full spectrum infrared optimized to give you the best result for your wellness journey. The tablet inside the sauna allows you to select a pre-set health program or customize your own: CARDIO (45 minutes) • Red Light/Near, Mid and Far Infrared • Starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output, then lowers to sustain heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure. DETOXIFICATION (37 minutes) • Mid and Far Infrared • Starts at a high intensity to increase the body’s core temperature, then reduces to a lower intensity level. Mid and far infrared combination improves vascular access flow to reach toxicants at the cellular level. PAIN RELIEF (30 minutes) • Red Light/Near, Mid and Far Infrared • A far and mid infrared blend provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling while near infrared penetrates the tissue promoting cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level. RELAXATION (40 minutes) • Red Light/Near, Mid and Far Infrared • Far, mid, and red light/near infrared combination induces deep relaxation as it relieves muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity, promoting overall stress reduction. WEIGHT LOSS (30 minutes) • Mid and Far Infrared • Starts at high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system, then reduces to medium level. As the body works to cool itself, heart rate increases cardiac output and metabolic rate, like aerobic exercise. ANTI-AGING (30 minutes) • Red Light/Near, Mid and Far Infrared • A low, constant intensity level penetrates the body and cells absorb the light energy to help skin health. Red light/near infrared improves overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness, promoting anti-aging benefits. CUSTOM (30-45 minutes) • Red Light/Near, Mid and Far Infrared • Gives you full control of each heater, allowing you to maximize the infrared power, output, and intensity of each session. It is important to note: the heater programs, and studies they are based on, are set using infrared wavelengths - not cabin temperature. Each program will take you through a variety of heater intensities and cabin temperatures. Do not be alarmed by any unexpected temperature changes. The efficacy of the program derives from the surface temperatures of the individual heaters, not the air temperature.
How often should I use the sauna? One session will certainly leave you feeling revived and refreshed. But just like with anything, the more you do it the better the results. Studies show 3-4 times per week is optimal for overall health and wellness.
When will I start sweating? Every body different- with infrared heat, typically people take a little longer to start sweating because unlike traditional sauna, infrared heats from the inside out. You may find you don't sweat much during the first few sessions.Sweat will increase with regular use.Your body is still eliminating harmful toxins, even though you may not be drenched in sweat. Make sure to drink plenty of water before your session- you will not sweat as much if you are dehydrated.
Is the sauna safe for everyone? There are some contraindications listed below- if you are not sure, please consult with your health care provider. Pregnancy Heat Sensitivity Cardiovascular Conditions History of dizziness or fainting spells Uncontrolled Hypertension We also can not accommodate smokers at this time in the sauna.
What does Red Light Therapy mean? Research shows low levels of light have a much better effect on stimulating and repairing tissues than higher levels. We blended low levels of red light with NIR light to bathe you in both, allowing us to create a quiet, comfortable red light therapy experience. The LED panels are integrated in the walls and part of our 3 in 1® Smart Sauna technology that manages the pre-set health programs, heaters and LED panels.
