Lymphatic System and Infrared Sauna:
The lymph fluid is where our white blood cells are generated and stored. Our lymph vessels and nodes act like filters, purifying the cells to keep the immune system in fighting shape.
An effective way to detoxify and strengthen the immune system is by using an infrared sauna. The detoxification process starts here; cortisol levels and blood pressure comes down. In the sauna, the lymph system is stimulated to expel any excess water. Swelling and inflammation are reduced. Growth hormone, beta endorphins, and prolactin levels rise in the blood during a sauna session. The boost in beta endorphins may account for some of the reduction in pain that many experience. The joints and tendons become more elastic. When we look at the ways our bodies eliminate toxins, in addition to the lymphatic system, we also rely on the liver, kidneys, lungs, blood, colon and the body’s largest organ, skin. The use of a sauna session allows the toxins to exit via sweat.
Infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which helps 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.
Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw our toxins, infrared sauna heats up your core to expel them. Basically: Instead of high heat reacting to your body and inducing sweat, infrared sauna heats core body and toxins leave with sweat.
When body is stressed, cortisol levels rise: increasing blood pressure and excess calories in the midsection. Scientific evidence shows that infrared saunas help maintain healthy levels of cortisol. With regular infrared sauna use, it has clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. With the inclusion of Sound Acoustic Vibrational Therapy, you won’t be able to find a more effective combination infrared sauna heat and musical massage to induce deep relaxation and tension relief.
Infrared heat technology burns calories. Only Sunlighten saunas are clinically shown to aid weight loss. Studies have shown that Sunlighten saunas can help lower weight and waist circumference in just 6 weeks (3x/week for 6 weeks, subjects have lost on average 4.4lb and 2.87in on the wasit). Common thread among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but more relaxing. Perfect alternative for clients who cannot participate in traditional cardio exercise. Burns 600 calories in 30 min.
Infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joins, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. Heal body naturally from soreness, muscle spasms, sports injury, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
BLOOD PRESSURE REDUCTION:
Clinical studies have shown that Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters lower blood pressure through a program consisting of 30 minute infrared sauna sessions 3 times a week. Reason being, Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilates blood vessels and reduces the volume of their inner lining, which increases circulation to promote healthy blood pressure. Also, it has been depicted that infrared sauna treatments improve impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Sunlighten produces an increase in blood flow by heating your muscles with infrared rays. This elevation in body temperature mirrors results from a cardiovascular workout and therefore gives the same benefits. When clients regularly use the infrared sauna in the mid-infrared range, blood flow is significantly stimulated, even after the health sauna session is completed.
After just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology, skin appearance improves significantly. What can be seen by clients is a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity, and firmness. What is important to note is that Sunlighten’s Solocarbon Custom Spectrum is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with near-infrared technology.
Sunlighten’s advanced Solocarbon Custom Spectrum heating technology is the only sauna that can heal wounds fast and minimize scarring through the usage of near infrared LEDs. Studies concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human issue growth.
CELL HEALTH, MUSCLE RECOVERY, & IMMUNITY:
Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat faster and causes blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and make the body’s cells more oxygenated. 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. Also, several studies have shown that LEDs, such as those found in the Sunlighten saunas, stimulate white blood cell production, which helps to better the immune system.
ACOUSTIC RESONANCE THERAPY (A.R.T)
Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.) creates an environment for the body to experience the benefits of sound and vibrational healing in an integrative way. Feeling the music we hear brings our bodies into harmony physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and environmentally through stimulating our feeling sense. When we begin to listen and feel the music we naturally relax into the harmonic flow.
Our brains and all the systems of our body are in a constant communication dance. The brain is sending and receiving information from the skin, bones, muscles, nerve cells, our hormones, etc. The stress hormone limits the communication and eventually inhibits the functioning of the immune system. Therefore, if we stay in a continual state of stress, we reduce our ability to fight disease. When we relax and move into a state of listening, and feeling joy, we stimulate endorphins that strengthen the energy dance within us.
Acoustic Resonance Therapy helps stimulate the natural relaxed state of body and mind. It balances our brainwaves and reminds us of our natural harmonic state.
Listening to music and feeling it resonate makes you more aware of the tensions in your body. Coupled with musical harmonic resonance, your body’s natural response relaxes stressed muscles and joints. As your bones resonate with the calming vibrations, neuro-pathways to the brain are activated, helping you achieve a more-focused state of mind and balanced heart rate.
Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms.
Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can actually be broken down into a seven color spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Color therapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light, each color addressing a distinct need.
Color and light have been utilized by healers for thousands of years. Color therapy possibly has roots in Indian medicine (Ayurveda), ancient Egyptian culture and traditional Chinese healing.
Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy often relate the seven colors of the color spectrum to specific body areas.
