Infared Sauna


Looking for an easy and inexpensive, but very effective way to detox, relax, lose weight, decrease pain and rejuvenate your skin at the same time? Mpulse by Sunlighten does it all and more by utilizing Solocarbon Full Spectrum technology that emits a blend of near, mid and far infrared light. Dr. Chen is the first to introduce to Hawaii the latest in infrared light technology.

It effectively heats the body by increasing the core temperature allowing it to burn up to 600 calories per session. Unlike the regular saunas, the infrared saunas do not heat up the air, it stays cool so it is easier to breathe and is more effective in heating up the body temperature.

Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum without the harmful UV rays and it has the capability to penetrate the human skin and give a soothing warm feeling.

Recent studies have shown that far infrared technology is 95% effective and clinically proven to lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss.¹ Mid Infrared is proven to relieve pain, improve circulation and assist in weight loss. Near Infrared helps with cell health and immunity, skin purification and pain relief.

Stress related-problems are the leading cause of health concerns. A study by The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems.² Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress-reduction. Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body control stress by controlling cortisol release thus reducing blood pressure with regular use.

It is possible that weight loss can be achieved with a 30 minute infrared sauna session on a regular basis. Studies have shown that it can burn as much as 600 calories in one session.³ It burns the calories by increasing the core temperature and body works hard to cool itself.

Treatment can relieve pain by decreasing muscle tension either from stress, poor posture or a physical codition. Sunlighten infrared sauna heat penetrates joints, muscles and tissues, possibly increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. It can reduce soreness on nerve endings, possibly decreasing muscle spasms. This can be perfect for sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.

Blood Pressure reduction can possibly be achieved with regular use of the infrared sauna. It has been clinically proven to dilate blood vessels, which can increase circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.

It’s also possible that Skin Rejuvenation can be achieved with the use of near infrared sauna. A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy 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.

Wound Healing rate can be increased and this can minimize scarring through the use of near infrared light. A study conducted by NASA showed that there is a significant faster cell regeneration, wound healing and increase in human tissue growth with repeated treatments utilizing near infrared.⁵
