OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading health and wellness experts including Dr. Mark Hyman, Kris Carr, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman, et al, all agree on the wide-ranging benefits of infrared saunas and use those from Sunlighten in their practices and/or homes. When used for detoxification, the average person in a conventional sauna sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. In a Sunlighten sauna, they sweat out 20% toxins. A 2009 study from the University of British Columbia showed a 20-minute Sunlighten sauna session three times a week helped lower weight and waist circumference. As the body works to cool itself in the sauna, heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate are all boosted. A clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City proved that 30-minute sessions three times a week, specifically in a Sunlighten sauna, lowered the subjects' blood pressure. Unlike conventional saunas that use hot rocks or steam heat, Sunlighten uses Solocarbon® far infrared heat—the same healing energy that is released naturally by the sun. Infrared is part of the sun's invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. It heats the body directly, instead of the air, increasing the core body temperature for a much deeper sweat. An investment in good health, Sunlighten's units range from $1899 and up. The company's website is www.sunlighten.com.
Sunlighten's new mPulse® series are the most state-of-the-art infrared saunas on the market. They are first and only line of smart infrared saunas to offer Solocarbon® Full Spectrum (near, mid and far infrared) technology with six preset health programs to safely and effectively target ones' health needs. Those programs are: cardio, detoxification, pain relief, weight loss, skin health and relaxation. All mPulse saunas feature a proprietary heater design that is 99% emissive (compared to generic infrared heaters that are less than 70% emissive). The emissivity level indicates the quality and effectiveness of infrared heat. Eco-certified wood, bamboo carbon heater covers and energy efficiency make them the clear green choice. Complementing Sunlighten's beautiful long-lasting craftsmanship and exclusive Magne-Seal assembly process for easy set-up, the mPulse Collection also has benches built from solid wood that are ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and removable to create space for yoga or stretching. With their exclusive acoustic resonance therapy enhancement, which combines the healing effects of sound and vibration to balance the brainwaves bringing the body to a deeper state of relaxation, these saunas offer the ultimate full spectrum infrared sauna experience.
"Our new mPulse Collection offers the most effective and the most advanced infrared technology available. With the versatility and options we offer, such as removable benches for yoga, biofeedback monitoring and acoustic resonance therapy, our customers can truly empower themselves to live healthier," said Sunlighten co-owner Connie Zack. "There is simply no other full spectrum infrared sauna available on the market today."
Sunlighten offers an exclusive online wellness community with biofeedback tools that allow users to track heart rate and calories burned during each sauna session and wirelessly send data to a personal wellness website – www.sunlighten.com/mySunlighten.html. Designed to help Sunlighten customers achieve their wellness goals with daily guidance, the wellness website allows users to track sauna sessions and cardiovascular activity, connect with other Sunlighten users, follow fitness plans with easy how-to-videos, plan meals and get nutrition advice and access free advice from Sunlighten wellness coaches.
