The Many Benefits of the Infrared Sauna

The MacDonald’s Wellness Center is proud to provide sauna sessions with the Sunlighten® InfraRed Sauna.

This sauna is getting more attention lately from mainstream media and medical experts like Dr.s Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mark Hyman, and for good reason.

New science from ancient methods shows that simply sitting in this sauna can help persons to lose weight, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, enhance body detoxification and experience improvement in pain.

This sauna combines the benefits of heat therapy and latest advances of infrared light infusion. The Sunlighten® sauna offers near, medium and far infrared light spectrum.

Near infrared rays (NIR) have the shortest infrared wavelength. When delivered to the body, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing and tissue growth. The sauna’s LED’s can trigger natural photo-biochemical reactions, similar to plants using chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. The pulses of this NIR has research to prove activation of DNA replication and improve the action of ATP (the energy maker of the body)

Mid infrared (MIR) offers a longer wavelength penetrating deeper into the body to address soft tissue inflammation, and speed up healing processes. MIR helps expand blood vessels and increases circulation so more oxygen can reach injured areas of the body. This reduces pain and speeds the healing process.

Far infrared (FIR) reaches deepest into the body, where toxins may be stored. The manufacturer states “Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, burning up to 600 calories in one 40-minute session!”
