Now available at our Carlton Street Clinic are sessions in our Sunlighten, m-Pulse Series, Infrared Sauna.
The m-Pulse Series provides three precise wavelengths for optimum performance and benefits.
Near Infrared (NIR) - Penetrating the skin surface and ideal for cell rejuvenation, skin renewal and wound healing.
Mid Infrared (MIR) - Penetrating into the body's soft tissues, it is ideal for pain relief, muscle recovery, passive cardiovascular workout and weight loss.
Far Infrared (FIR) - Stimulates the sweat glands, raises core body temperature, increases blood circulation, detoxifies and reduces blood pressure.
Far infrared therapy has been shown to be effective in the removal of toxins through the skin such as cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulphuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.
Sunlighten saunas contain patented SoloCarbon far infrared heating technology. This is the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by 2-3 degrees Celsius, enabling detoxification at a deeper level.
The weight loss program in our Sunlighten sauna can burn up to 600 calories. This is due to the increase in core body temperature. Our body responds with a healthy sweat to cool us down.
It also increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more energy, contributing to weight loss. Sunlighten sauna use elicits cardiovascular conditioning similarly to exercise.
Infrared sauna heat therapy is often incorporated by pain management professionals to decrease muscle spasms and pain whilst accelerating recovery. The natural pain relief is a result of infrared light penetration into tissues, joints and muscles.
It has been shown to relieve pain beyond minor aches to chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia.
Infrared saunas replicate a cardiovascular workout, also known as passive cardio. A well-functioning cardiovascular system enables capillaries to deliver more oxygen to
cells in your muscles.
As a part of a healthy lifestyle, Sunlighten sauna sessions can dilate blood vessels and reduce the volume of their inner lining. This increases circulation, promoting a healthy blood pressure.
Infrared saunas both prevent acne and improve the appearance of scars. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, leading to constant breakouts. The infrared heat, as opposed to actual heat, cleans out clogged pores as a result of sweating.
Collagen and elastin in the skin have been proven to increase after exposure to infrared, improving skin texture, less roughness and even coloration. NASA research shows NIR LED light found in our sauna also promotes faster cell regeneration.
LEDs can stimulate white blood cell production and collagen growth. This is done by increasing energy at the cellular level. LEDs are embedded in Sunlighten's m-Pulse saunas, which we have available for booking at our Carlton North True Health Solutions clinic.
Raising core body temperature is an important mechanism that keeps us alive and healthy. Infrared saunas elicit similar benefits to the fever response, including white blood cell and T-cell production for protection against viruses. Toxins beneath the skin are also eliminated via sweat.
