The many benefits of infrared 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.


Enhances cell health, mitochondrial function, rejuvenates skin, stimulates collagen and elastin, aids wound healing, and pain relief.


Aids in pain relief, weight loss, and increases circulation.


Absorbed deepest by the body to increase core body temperature and aid in detoxification, weight loss, blood pressure reduction, relaxation, and muscle recovery.

Make it a massage and sauna combo.

Make it a combo for enhanced benefits.

Your experience begins with a personalized massage, meticulously designed by our skilled therapists to unravel muscle tension, alleviate stress, and foster a deep sense of relaxation. Through expert techniques, your massage therapist will target areas of discomfort, employing a combination of kneading and pressure to promote circulation, enhance flexibility, and prepare your body for the next phase of detoxification and renewal.

Transitioning from the soothing hands of your therapist, you’ll step into the embracing warmth of our state-of-the-art, full-spectrum infrared sauna.

The gentle, radiant heat supports muscle recovery, enhances the relaxation effects of your massage, and promotes a profound sense of well-being by stimulating endorphin release, improving circulation, and reducing inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the temperature inside the sauna?

It is important to understand that health benefits are a result of efficient infrared emissivity, not air temperature. Sunlighten saunas are 95-99% emissive to deliver the highest concentration of infrared. We set our sauna temperature to 125 degrees to maximize comfort and efficacy.

Medical conditions - is it safe for me?

If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use: 

  • Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems, or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature. 
  • Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates, and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics, such as amitriptyline, may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke. 
  • Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness. 
  • Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time. 
  • Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands, and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time. 
  • Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated with Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors, and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician. 
  • Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone to Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding. 
  • Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides. 
  • Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna. 
  • Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use. 
  • Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. 
  • Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.  
  • Surgeries (For Solo Only) – If you’ve had any abdominal surgery, c-section, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation, consult your physician before using the Solo. 
  • Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause. 
What do I wear?

We recommend underwear, a bathing suit or light, loose-fitting clothing inside the sauna for maximum benefit.

Can I bring my phone in the sauna?

Just as you would not leave your cell phone in your car on a hot day, we do not recommend taking cells phones, Apple watches or other electronics in the sauna. We recommend bringing a great book or a magazine!

Should I shower after my session?

The residual benefits from the infrared and heat are such that we recommend waiting 30-60 minutes before showering or cooling off too quickly.

Toweling off after your session as needed is best.


All private sessions are 30 minutes.
