OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunlighten(TM) ( is proud to unveil its mPulse(TM) Series, set to launch in April 2010, which is the world's first sauna with personalized biofeedback tracking as well as customizable full spectrum infrared heat that targets specific health concerns.

Sunlighten's revolutionary new mPulse(TM) Infrared Sauna Series includes a biofeedback monitor programmed to wirelessly measure and send heart rate and calories burned into a wellness website for personal use.

The mPulse(TM) Series by Sunlighten(TM) also features the first customizable full spectrum infrared heater. Consumers control the settings, from near-infrared light (for pain relief and skin purification), to mid-infrared (which assists in weight loss and improved circulation), to far infrared (which reduces blood pressure and is whole-body detoxifying).

The mPulse(TM) Series has already been selected as an Official 2010 Consumer Electronics Association Honoree in Health & Wellness, and it will receive official recognition at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.

Unlike conventional saunas that use hot rock/steam heat, Sunlighten(TM) Saunas use infrared heating, a technology that is one of the world's best alternative medicine secrets.

According to Owner Connie Zack, "Our company goal is to perpetuate the shift from disease treatment towards disease prevention. The future of health depends on natural, safe and non-toxic methods of healing, such as infrared sauna therapy. We exist to help empower individuals in this mindset change."

The infrared saunas from Sunlighten(TM) were clinically shown in a study done at the University of Missouri, Kansas City to lower blood pressure. And The Journal of American College of Cardiology reports that infrared sauna treatments significantly increase circulation, improve heart health, and aid in weight loss. As calculated by the increase in heart rate, a 30-minute infrared sauna session in a Sunlighten Sauna can burn between 200 and 600 calories.

Infrared saunas such as the mPulse(TM) can also boost immunity, helping to prevent colds and flu, by increasing lymphocyte levels in the bloodstream.

With a Bauhaus-inspired modern design, the mPulse(TM) Series is built from FSC-certified wood from sustainable forests, and is available in teak, basswood and cedar. It is easily assembled through an invisible patented MagneSeal(TM) locking system that prolongs cabin life. The mPulse(TM) comes standard with an LCD touch-screen interface, Blaupunkt speakers, a CD / DVD player, antibacterial bamboo heater backrests, and ergonomic floating benches. It can be used indoors or outdoors, and plugs into a household outlet, using less than $10/month in electricity.
