Infrared: Relax & Detox
Updated: Nov 16, 2020
Feeling the cold.... we have just the thing to help warm you up. Not only is our 3-wavelength infrared sauna beautifully warm and cosy, it also has therapeutic benefits!
What is an infrared sauna you ask? Nope, it's not a steam room, not a hot rock sauna, it's light therapy that uses specific wavelengths of light that create heat and penetrate past the skin’s layers. So rather than a surface sweat, you have a deep sweat, without gasping for air.
Infrared light has been scientifically proven to deliver numerous health benefits including cellular detoxification, pain relief, improved circulation, increased endorphins, weight loss, relaxation, increased collagen production for anti-ageing. Along with the reduction of blood pressure, cortisol and inflammation.
How does infrared light work?
Infrared light is the soothing heat people feel when exposed to the sun but without the harmful UV rays. It helps assist cells, muscle, tissue and skin to regenerate and repair themselves and improves the circulation of oxygen-rich blood.
Our Sunlighten mPULSE 3-IN-1® SAUNA provides 3 different wavelengths, working on 3 different depths into your body:
Near infrared is the shortest infrared wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface, ideal for cell rejuvenation, skin renewal and wound healing.
Mid infrared is a longer wavelength, going deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation can occur. Mid infrared can help with pain relief, muscle recovery, passive cardiovascular workout and weight loss. Mid infrared expands blood vessels, helping oxygen reach injured areas of your body, to speed up recovery.
Far infrared is the longest wavelength and reaches deepest into the body where toxins are stored. By raising your core body temperature, stimulating the sweat glands resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat that leaves you feeling revitalized. Far infrared provides the benefits of an increased core body temperature, increased blood circulation, detoxification and reduced blood pressure. Overall benefits, amazing!
There are many infrared saunas on the market, and we wanted the most therapeutic. This is why we chose the Sunlighten. Sunlighten technologies had third parties test their technologies for EMF's (Electromagnetic Fields). This is important to us, as we want the best for our clients, and having a sauna for therapeutic benefits, would not be the same if it were emitting high volume EMF's.
What is Chromotherapy?
Lux Spa & Wellness have added Chromotherapy for further healing benefits. Chromotherapy is coloured light to help further stimulate healing of certain areas. Each colour can help enhance your Sauna experience. An example, blue lights help stimulate the nerve & circulatory system, lubricate joints & treat infections. There are twelve different colours, all working on different systems in your body. You can choose the colour or choose to have the lights off.
