The Scoop: Most couples know how important it is to stay active, but many may not understand the importance of the recovery process in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Today, innovative technology can help enhance that renewal process. Sunlighten offers a wide array of products — from saunas to handheld wands — that leverage infrared technology to help people recover quickly. The health benefits of infrared saunas range from stable blood pressure and improved circulation to weight loss, relaxation, and pain relief. Additionally, Sunlighten’s products offer a therapeutic way for couples to spend more time together.

People often encourage their loved ones to eat right, exercise, reduce stress, and develop habits that will improve their overall health and help them live longer. It’s especially important to engage in a strength training program, but that can be difficult when someone is still sore from the previous day’s workout. That’s why it can be smart to get a little help in the recovery process.

Infrared technology is one of the latest innovations that aids in that recovery, and Sunlighten designs saunas and handheld wands that allow individuals and couples to reap the benefits in the comfort of their own homes.

Sports Illustrated has highlighted the many benefits of infrared saunas on the body. People often use regular saunas — filled with steam made from pouring water over hot rocks — to relax their muscles and help them recover after activity. But those saunas heat the air that surrounds the body when someone sits inside. Because the air temperature can rise to 190 degrees, they are only safe to sit in for a short time.

Sunlighten saunas use infrared technology to provide people with unique recovery experiences.

Infrared technology promotes faster recovery times and offers other therapeutic benefits.

Infrared saunas don’t heat the air around you. Instead, they gently heat your body directly. The lower temperatures (about 50 degrees lower than a traditional sauna) mean people can stay inside longer and gain more health benefits. The infrared wavelengths can penetrate up to 1.5 inches below the skin’s surface — heating your body at the core. In fact, Sunlighten saunas are clinically shown to raise your core body temperature up to three degrees.

The technology is used in hospitals to keep newborns warm and provides the same type of feeling that makes standing around a campfire so pleasurable. It affects people on a cellular level by increasing blood flow in deep tissues and helping people feel rejuvenated.

Sunlighten offers saunas, handheld wands, and other products, so couples can make the recovery process a part of their daily lives and stay healthy together.

Founder Jason Lincoln Jeffers Experienced the Power of Infrared Saunas Firsthand

The concept for Sunlighten came to Founder Jason Lincoln Jeffers when he first used infrared therapy to treat a chronic illness. Traditional medicine didn’t provide him with the relief he sought, so he tried the new technology first when his aunt gave him an infrared comforter. Soon, he tried an infrared sauna.

“I’ll never forget the first time I used an infrared sauna,” he wrote on the Sunlighten website. “It was so relaxing and tranquil. I felt calm, passive, at peace. After I showered the sweat off my body, I felt cleansed, purified. I knew immediately that I had received a revolutionary healing product that could be used in the privacy of my own home on a daily basis. I called it my ‘rejuvenation chamber.'”

Jason has worked to spread the word about the benefits of infrared technology ever since.

Connie Zack, Co-Owner and Chief Sales Officer for Sunlighten, has helped the company improve its technology to maximize benefits for its customers over the years. The ultimate goal is to offer recovery, pain relief, and healing without the use of drugs.

“When you give someone a Sunlighten infrared sauna, you are sending them a message that you truly care about their mental, physical, and emotional health,” she said. “Plus, it’s a gift that can last for years to come.”

The company offers a variety of options on its website, and each product includes the most effective, patented infrared technology. Sunlighten saunas come in a variety of sizes, as well, from one-person chambers to those large enough for couples to share. The company even has a handheld wand that uses the same healing energy and is perfect for on-the-go recovery sessions.

High-Quality Products Designed to Fit Busy Lives

People may think they need a lot of space to put a sauna in their home, but that’s not the case. The Sunlighten Solo System is a portable, collapsible infrared sauna that can fit into many small spaces.

All of its saunas are built with premium wood — including eucalyptus, cedar, or hypoallergenic basswood, and the company doesn’t use any plywood, only non-toxic and sustainably sourced materials.

Sunlighten also ensures all of its products meet electrical safety standards with ultra-low EMF technology. The products undergo rigorous third-party testing to verify compliance.

The patented Magne-Seal assembly process makes saunas easy to set up at home. Many saunas come with a 36-hour programmable timer, so an infrared experience will be ready whenever couples are.

The lumiNIR wand is a portable infrared technology that helps people feel rejuvenated on the go.

Some saunas also include a premium Blaupunkt sound system, which has radio, CD, and MP3 playback for an immersive, relaxing environment customized to anyone’s taste.

One of Sunlighten’s most popular solo options is the new lumiNIR, a professional-strength light treatment in a handheld wand. The wand features the latest infrared technology — the same as the company’s saunas. That means individuals and couples can benefit from near-infrared, red light, and blue light, which is ideal for skin renewal, collagen production, and cell turnover.

Customers can choose from four attachments that focus on different aspects of health: anti-aging, clear skin, cell renewal, and pain relief. Customers typically hold it against their skin between 35 seconds and 2 minutes and 20 seconds — which is considered one dose. Customers can experiment carefully to see what works best for them and their loved ones.

Sunlighten: New Products Bring the Benefits of Infrared Technology to More People

After an active day, relaxing in a sauna with your partner can be a great way to recover, rejuvenate, and reconnect, especially if the sauna uses infrared technology.

“Some of our saunas can even make for an awesome date spot. A place where the two of you can unwind, listen to music, work up a sweat, and truly focus on each other — distraction-free,” Connie said.

For example, the mPulse Believe is the world’s only 3-in-1 full spectrum infrared sauna. It comfortably seats two and has near, mid, and far-infrared heaters that are proven to be 99% effective. Couples can choose from seven wellness programs, which they can access and control from an app.

Online reviews of Sunlighten are just as glowing as its warm infrared lights, and the company has an impressive track record on Trustpilot.

“I have been using my Sunlighten Solo unit for about three years and absolutely love it,” said Marissa Yanick in an review. “The sauna is excellent for overall wellness, relaxation, detox, and stress management. If you’re considering treating yourself to any Sunlighten sauna I encourage you to do so as it will be a wonderful addition to your health and wellness regimen.”
