Sunlighten Infrared Sauna Treatments

The world’s first and only 3-in-1 Full Spectrum infrared sauna allows you to take charge of your health with near, mid and far infrared heaters. 



What Is An Infrared Sauna?


An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit light of varying wavelengths within the infrared light section of the electromagnetic spectrum.


This light penetrates the skin and is able to, depending on which wavelength is being absorbed, have an effect on the internal systems of the body.

  • Near-infrared, with wavelengths from 0.76 to 1.5 microns, is the shortest wavelength in the infrared light spectrum. Some of the benefits include wound healing, improved skin, boosting collagen, and muscle recovery.

  • Mid-infrared, with wavelengths from 1.5 to 5.6 microns, penetrates deeper than near-infrared, but not as deep as far-infrared. Benefits include improved circulation, joint pain relief, expands blood vessels for better circulation, weight loss, and raises body temperature.

  • Far-infrared, with wavelengths from 5.6 all the way to 1000 microns, has the deepest level of penetration within the infrared light spectrum. For reference, light from the sun is considered far-infrared. Some of these benefits include strengthening the cardiovascular system, boosts immunity, helps with detoxification, and lowering blood pressure.

  • Chromotherapy lighting, which users colors at varying wavelengths in order to produce additional benefits.


The combination of all three of these types of infrared light within our infrared sauna, including chromotherapy lighting, is the best recipe for a healthy immune system and so much more.


Experience the soothing and purifying infrared therapy that penetrates the body at the cellular level, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Our Sunlighten Sauna's 6-built-in health programs  include Detoxification, Relaxation, Anti-Aging, Cardiovascular, Weight Loss, and Pain Relief​.

We offer single session pricing as well as series discounts and membership options.

Cabin Temperature

A high heat sauna is not providing the benefits of infrared. It is only heating the cabin air and a shallow, surface sweat will be produced to cool the body. Thereby dehydrating the body.


The sauna is not required to run at high heat (140+). The ambient air temperature of the sauna is a personal preference. It has nothing to do with the efficacy of the infrared, which works best between 110 - 130 degrees.

Save On Your Sessions

We offer package and membership pricing for our clients who use our sauna regularly. This is a great way to save money whilst enjoying all of the benefits of our sauna on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

Anti-Aging Sauna Session 30M

Near infrared (NIR) light therapy is the science of photobiomodulation which uses invisible, near infrared wavelengths between 700 and 1,200 nm (nanometers) to deliver energy to cells. NIR is the shortest wavelength and penetrates the skin’s surface more effectively than mid or far infrared. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health and tissue growth. Similar NIR LED (light-emitting diodes) were originally developed for NASA in order to grow plants in space, replicating the sun.

A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.

Sunlighten’s SoloCarbon 3 in 1 is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with LED near infrared lights. In fact, it comes with an anti-aging program that is designed from this study.

For our anti-aging program, a low, constant level penetrates tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near IR LEDs improve overall skin tone, elasticity, and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits.

Skin Benefits:

Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, and if you produce a lot of oil, that can lead to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat – not actual heat – which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.

Skin Detoxification:
Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as dead skin cells, oils, dirt and bacteria. Our SoloCarbon technology heats your body to the core, triggering your body to release toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin. 

Tone and Texture:
In a study done in 2006, 2 researchers looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.

Appearance of Scars :
The increase in circulation and delivery of oxygen to injured or damaged areas helps with cell turnover, which helps with the appearance of scars. Studies using NASA LED technology concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing, and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155-171%.3


Pain Relief Sauna Session 30M

Sunlighten infrared sauna users love to tell us about the pain relief properties of their sauna sessions. You too can toss the pain pills and step into one of our healing infrared sanctuaries to relieve tension and relax muscles.


Sunlighten infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, our infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.

For years, doctors have recommended Sunlighten saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.

Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal. 

For our pain relief program, an IR blend provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling while near IR LEDs penetrate the tissue to promote cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level.

Infrared Sauna for Weight loss

Weight Loss Sauna Session 30M

Looking to lose weight? Sunlighten can help. Our saunas help you lose weight by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort.

A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time. Furthermore, Solocarbon infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy. This is also the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves weight loss efforts.

Using infrared heat technology to burn calories, our saunas – and only our saunas – are clinically shown to aid weight loss. In a 2009 study, our infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period. The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but “much more relaxing”. Therefore, Sunlighten saunas can be an effective lifestyle advantage for those who cannot participate in traditional exercise programs due to medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular or respiratory problems. 


In addition, according to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperatures increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using an infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.

Regular use of a Sunlighten sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning. That’s right, using Sunlighten for infrared weight loss therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – wherever and whenever you need it!

For our weight loss program, your session starts off at a high intensity to stimulate the cardiovascular system then reduces to a medium level. As the body works to cool itself, there is an increase in the heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate similar to exercise.

Infrared Sauna Cardio Program Sarasota

Cardio Sauna Session 45M

Regular use of a Sunlighten infrared sauna, as part of a healthy lifestyle, can be good for your heart! In the U.S. alone, one in three adults suffer from heart disease, stroke, or some other form of cardiovascular disease in their lifetime.

Our infrared saunas, because they raise your heart rate and increase circulation, replicate a cardiovascular workout, which we term “passive cardio.” Your heart is a muscle and working it makes it stronger. A stronger cardiovascular system helps capillaries deliver more oxygen to cells in your muscles. For people with injuries or conditions that preclude them from cardio activity, Sunlighten saunas can help serve as an alternative for needed cardio benefits.

Only Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to provide one of the best, natural ways to help temporarily lower blood pressure. In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Sunlighten’s SoloCarbon far infrared heaters were shown to temporarily lower blood pressure. The study concluded that Sunlighten sauna sessions, as part of a healthy lifestyle, dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation needed for healthy blood pressure.

Time in a Sunlighten sauna heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute, to as much as 13 quarts per minute.

Relaxation Sauna Session 40M

Sunlighten saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress – reduction. Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Stress impacts not just the mind but the body, as well.

Studies show that high levels of stress have great impact on the brain. From memory problems to anxiety to learning difficulties, the effects of stress on the mind are immense. Neuroscientists have shown that chronic stress can even cause differences in grey and white matter in the brain, as well as the size and connectivity of the amygdala. High levels of stress can even impact the amount of neurons found in the brain.

Relax and reduce mental stress with Sunlighten™. Our infrared therapy soothes your mind by enveloping your body in relaxing warmth. Our saunas are designed for maximum comfort, allowing you to not only loosen your body, but loosen your mind. Practicing mindful meditation while in a sauna therapy session can also help with mental stress reduction. Alone time is maximized with a sauna therapy session, giving you an opportunity to reflect and move on from the stressors of the day.

For our relaxation program, far, mid, and near infrared rays induce deep relaxation as they relieve muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction, especially with regular use.

Infrared Sauna for Detox Sarasota

Detoxification Sauna Session 40M

Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more you’ll expel from your skin and body. A sauna can be one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins, including dead skin cells, oils, dirt, bacteria, and other toxic substances through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.

Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification thanks to our highly-efficient and patented SoloCarbon far infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them. As a result, regular usage of a Sunlighten sauna will provide a deep, productive sweat.

The optimal detox sauna experience occurs between 100° and 130°F. With our mPulse 3-in-1 sauna collection, our detoxification program combines far and mid infrared, starting at a high intensity to increase core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level.

Please Note**

Each sauna session will have a $3 service fee added to the total which serves as gratuity for the sauna attendant. You may leave additional gratuity if you so wish.
