Sunlighten Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna

At Northwest Family Chiropractic and Massage, we are constantly learning and seeking out cutting edge, highly effective therapies to offer our practice members with the goal of improving overall health and wellness.
We are very excited to announce that we have added a Sunlighten Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna to our practice and is now available for use with our practice members!

Sweating is good for you!

It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Sunlighten Full Spectrum infrared sauna’s are different from traditional saunas. Traditional Saunas heat the air around you often making it difficult to spend significant time in the sauna. Sunlighten Full Spectrum IR saunas create an optimal detoxification experience 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.

Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. mPulse saunas got their name because the LED pulsate for optimal benefits.

Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process. To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR. We worked with engineers and scientists to source a high-tech material made to withstand the temperature required.

The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. We’ve already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating and have applied that same coating to our polyimide panel. Instead of being sandwiched between layers, the coating is on the exterior of the heating panel. During the testing process, we discovered this application makes it 99% emissive!

Some of the health benefits of routine Sauna use include improved cardiovascular health and circulation, cellular detoxification, decreased inflammation, anti-aging properties and weight loss. We are excited for our practice members to experience the MANY benefits of Full Spectrum IR Sauna Detoxification.
