Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna -
Shape Up! is excited to add the Sunlighten Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna to its array of services. The Sunlighten Sauna is the only sauna on the market to offer near, mid and far infrared wavelengths at the same time.
Near Infrared LEDs
Near infrared waves have a shorter frequency range with the ability to penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin making it optimal for skin rejuvenation, wound healing and skin health.
The technology used is similar to the infrared used in cosmetic and healing devices. Utilizing LED technology allows our heaters to produce consistent Near Infrared without extreme heat or light (in fact, the heat and light coming from the LEDs is nearly undiscenrable).
Mid infrared wavelengths are mid-range and are beneficial for increasing circulation that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use in the mid infrared range has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after the sauna session is completed.
A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery showed that acute flexibility increased up to 3x in the mPulse sauna using a mid and far infrared blend! Benefits to the increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation.
Far infrared have the longest frequency and can penetrate deep into human tissue. Far infrared waves increase the body's core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Far infrared is optimal for detoxification, weight loss and blood pressure reduction.
