Sunlighten Far Infra- red Sauna
Here at Newcastle Muscle Therapy, we have a unique detox sauna. This sauna is a great way to help repair muscle soreness, or can be used if you just want to relax. Our sauna is from the Sunlighten company, a Far Infrared, Signature series of the Sauna, in Cedar wood, (as opposed to the 3 wave length sauna edition). The sauna is a relaxing 30min or 45min treatment, reaching temperatures of up to 65° during the treatment. It is a dry heat, detox sauna, heating your body up to reach the core body temperature which then begins to promote the body to sweat from the inside out. When using the sauna, it is at our staff’s discretion to discern if you are under any influence of alcohol or drugs. If so, we will not permit you to go in. Also, we don’t condone using the sauna to detox from any drug use.
How Can a Sauna Treatment Benefit you
Sunlighten saunas have been designed to encourage a lifetime of use through the utmost in comfort, for the purest form of relaxation and stress-reduction. Long-term stress is the cause of physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system. Cortisol – a ‘fight or flight’ hormone produced by the body – increases with stress, raising heart rate and blood pressure, leading to the deposit of excess calories in the mid section.
Scientific evidence shows that infrared therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. In fact, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
Through the use of cutting edge, soothing Solocarbon® heating technology, Sunlighten saunas deliver the most therapeutic infrared heat per square inch (up to 99% efficient) to help you relieve stress, ease muscles and fully relax. With the inclusion of our exclusive SO Sound acoustic vibration therapy, you will enjoy the most effective combination of infrared heat and musical massage to induce the deepest form of relaxation and tension relief. Sunlighten saunas are guaranteed to help you relax in natural comfort with an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed with every session.
If you’re looking to lose weight, Sunlighten can help. Our saunas have been shown in a recent study to help reduce waistline by burning calories while you relax in comfort. If you can maintain a healthy weight, you increase your likelihood of a longer, healthier life. When it comes to infrared heat’s ability to help burn calories, only Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to aid in weight loss. Results from a 2009 study indicated that Sunlighten saunas are beneficial for lowering weight and waist circumference in just a 3 month period. Another study showed that 30 minute infrared sauna sessions can burn upwards of 600 calories. As the body works to cool itself in our infrared saunas, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
One of the most compelling reasons to purchase a Sunlighten sauna is the natural pain relief associated with its use. In fact, this is our number 1 piece of positive customer feedback. Sunlighten infrared heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions. A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. As such, Sunlighten saunas are designed for the deepest, most detoxifying sweat. Illness can be caused by the build-up of toxic substances, requiring detoxification. Ridding the body of toxins can help relieve symptoms, prevent illness and increase overall health and vitality. Sauna usage is one of the most effective methods of inducing a detoxifying sweat. But not all saunas are the same. The infrared heat generated by Sunlighten sauna produces sweat consisting of nearly 20% toxins versus only 3% in a traditional sauna. As such, detoxification from a Sunlighten sauna is up to 7 times more effective than a traditional one. This is accomplished via Sunlighten’s proprietary & highly efficient technology – the only infrared heaters clinically shown to raise core body temperature by 2-3 degrees.
Blood Pressure Reduction
Only Sunlighten saunas have clinical research showing a reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure from regular use, key factors in maintaining a healthy heart. Only Sunlighten saunas have been clinically determined to provide one of the best, natural ways to lower blood pressure. Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters were shown in a research study to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure through 30 minute infrared sauna session, 3 times per week. Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy reduces blood pressure by dilating blood vessels and decreasing the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure. Heating your muscles with Sunlighten infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. In fact, blood flow with infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
Regular use of Sunlighten infrared saunas helps restore skin to its youthful appearance. Forego expensive cosmetic treatments, instead, rejuvenate your skin while also receiving all of the other health benefits associated with Sunlighten’s leading infrared sauna therapy. A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance in just 12 weeks of using near infrared (NIR) LED tchnology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness. Sunlighten’s Solocarbon Custom Spectrum is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with the ability to produce this NIR technology!

Cell Health, Muscle Recovery & Immunity.
Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense. Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, helping cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
According to The Doctor’s Prescription for Health Living, Sunlighten’s infrared heat is one of the best treatments for sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and other injuries associated with sports, because it works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.
“Regardless of the extent of the injury, someone who regularly uses this type of sauna will recover faster,” explains Dr. Jeffrey Spencer, a sports medicine expert. “It doesn’t add additional stress to the body or the injury. It actually works with the body to heal.”
