Infrared Sauna in San Luis Obispo, CA

Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate human tissue. Infrared (IR) saunas heat the body directly rather than just the air, so they are extremely comfortable and relaxing; unlike conventional steam saunas which heat the air and can be unbearably hot with the air difficult to breath. Planet Beach’s Sunlighten sauna has full spectrum near, mid and far infrared wavelengths in one unit so the user can select from 6 pre-set programs to target a health issue: detoxification, weight loss, pain relief, skin health, cardiovascular, or just relaxation! 

Some of the clinically-proven benefits of the infrared sauna include detoxification that is 7 to 10 times greater than a conventional sauna. With an Infrared sauna the body’s core temperature is increased thus resulting in a deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of tissue where heavy metal toxins reside.  Conventional hot rock/steam saunas only cause you to sweat at the skin’s surface. IR increases blood flow and enhances cardiovascular conditioning by promoting dilation of the capillaries. IR heat reduces muscle spasms as muscle fibers are heated, and reduces soreness through direct action on nerve endings. It also assists in the reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow.

IR therapy is also a great way to reach your weight loss goals.  A 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories. Near-Infrared has also been proven to improve the skin’s appearance with regular use. Healing of, acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and skin lesions are just a few more benefits.  As if that’s not enough it also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, and improves skin tone and elasticity.  Sunlighten isn’t just a sauna, it is a wellness tool that is adaptable to your health needs over time.
