Here at Venus spa we strive to provide our patients with the most effective ways to health and pain free living. Our Integrative Care approach allows for authentic healing and a way to actually treat the problem and not just the symptoms.
In light of this it only seemed natural when we learned about the vast array of benefits provided by these saunas and their full spectrum infrared technology that we include one as part of the care we provide to our patients. These saunas are a cut above the rest and Sunlighten is the exclusive provider of this technology. We are extremely proud to offer this to our patients and include it as part of our plan of care here at Venus spa
So...with that being said, what do these saunas do and how can they help me?
Two Terrific Questions....For starters Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat instead of hot rocks or steam used in traditional saunas. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air.
The experience of an infrared sauna is similar to sunbathing, which gives you the radiant heat that is all your own. The infrared heat penetrates your skin, giving you that wonderful natural warmth. Unlike sunbathing, infrared heat therapy is completely healthy and safe. You can relax in an infrared sauna and it will never cause your skin to burn. Picture yourself feeling the sun’s rays on a warm day. That is what it is like to be in a Sunlighten sauna.
Clinically Tested Technology
The heaters in Sunlighten Saunas are 7x more effective for detoxification than those found in traditional saunas. Proven 95-99% efficient, it is the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal, stay healthy and detoxify. In a Sunlighten sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water, while in a conventional sauna, the average person only sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning.
Sunlighten saunas deliver the ultimate experience in relaxation. With the most therapeutic infrared heat found in Solocarbon® heating technology, our saunas are guaranteed to help you relax in comfort with an invigorating sweat that will have you feeling stress-free with each session.
Clinical research on pain has shown evidence of heat responsive pain or HRP, which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be specificallytreated with the use of our infrared heat therapy.
Blood Pressure Reduction
Sunlighten’s Solocarbon® heaters were shown in a clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute infrared sauna session three times per week.
Sunlighten saunas heat your muscles with infrared rays and produces anincrease in blood flow similar to regular exercise. Blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
A study showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.
Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.
Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, which causes more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Humans need the sun’s light, which is broken into seven distinct rays, to live. If there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, it can manifest itself in mental or physical distress.
Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help your body re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a separate bodily need.
