LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The greatest revolution in sauna health benefits will be revealed on NBC's hit show The Doctors on January 27th. The Doctors will be featuring the new mPulse™ sauna from Sunlighten™—the world's first full-spectrum biofeedback infrared sauna boasting the greatest clinically backed health benefits of any sauna on the market.
Unlike conventional saunas that use hot rock/steam heat, Sunlighten™ saunas use infrared heating, a technology that doctors recommend for heart health, detoxification, pain relief, muscle recovery and skin purification.
Sunlighten's revolutionary new mPulse™ infrared sauna series is the FIRST ever to feature full-spectrum infrared heaters. Consumers control the settings, from near-infrared (for pain relief and skin rejuvenation), to mid-infrared (for weight loss and improved circulation), to far infrared (which reduces blood pressure and is whole-body detoxifying).
The mPulse™ sauna series by Sunlighten™ also is the FIRST to include a biofeedback monitor programmed to wirelessly measure and send heart rate and calories burned into a wellness website for personal use.
On January 27st, The Doctors will demonstrate the amazing health benefits of an mPulse™ sauna on-air, tracking health goals (such as heart rate and calories burned) of individuals in the sauna in real time.
The Doctors chose to feature the infrared saunas from Sunlighten™, because they are the only saunas clinically shown (in a study done at the University of Missouri, Kansas City) to lower blood pressure. Additionally, 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 can burn 200-600 calories.
Sunlighten™ partners with the American Heart Association (AHA) to help prevent cardiovascular disease, contributing money and auction items annually, including a portion of sauna sales during February's American Heart Month. In addition, Sunlighten's co-owners Connie and Aaron Zack serve as Board Members of their local AHA chapter.
With a Bauhaus-inspired modern design, the mPulse™ sauna series is built from Forest Stewardship Counsel (FSC) certified wood from sustainable forests, and is available in teak, basswood and cedar. It is easily assembled through an invisible patented MagneSeal™ locking system that prolongs cabin life. The mPulse™ 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.
Founded in 1999, Sunlighten™ (formerly Sunlight Saunas) offers innovative wellness products that empower individuals' health & vitality through technology. Sunlighten's infrared saunas help detoxify the body & provide pain relief, and have been clinically shown to aid in weight loss & reduce blood pressure.
