What is Infrared?

Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth.

Sunlighten’s Solocarbon far infrared sauna in Washington, D.C, is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.

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

Infrared saunas are concentrated forms of infrared heat so there are considerations for use for certain medical conditions.

Infrared saunas are not recommended for pregnant women during any stage of pregnancy.

No one under the age of 18 is permitted in the far infrared sauna unless accompanied by a supervising adult.

You must be fully hydrated before using the sauna as the risk of lightheadedness, dizziness and heat exhaustion can be a result when using without proper nutrition and hydration. 

Please consult your doctor if you have chronic heart disease, circulatory issues or conditions that reduce the ability to sweat or perspire. For a full list of contraindications click here


Benefits of Infrared light therapy:

Sunlighten far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. Sweating is our body’s natural way of eliminating unwanted build up and boosting our immune system to heal the body.

Sunlighten Solo System® has been designed to encourage the purest form of relaxation and stress-reduction. Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep-tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.

Weight Loss
Studies have shown a 30-minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories. 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.

Heart Health
Sunlighten infrared therapy induces a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation.

Pain Relief
Researchers have found therapeutic benefits to back, neck and arthritis pain from continuous use of infrared heat therapy. Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.

The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by infrared therapy. 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 and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.

Stay healthy with the natural preventative properties of our exclusive LED near infrared heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. Book your next far infrared sauna in Washington, D.C, today.
