What is the mPulse Empower Sauna By Sunlighten?

It is the world's first & ONLY smart infrared sauna designed by Sunlighten to offer full spectrum (near, mid, & far infrared) technology, customizable to safety & effectively target your health needs. Eco-certified basswood, ultra low EMF technology, bamboo strand heater covers & energy efficiency makes this the clear green choice. It is the safest and most effective far infrared sauna on the market with Solocarbon Technology- the ONLY far infrared technology clinically shown to lower blood pressure, increase core temperature & aid in weight loss. Infrared Light is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. This Infrared heat is completely safe and therapeutic. It produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at cellular levels, where most toxins reside. Far Infrared Sauna Therapy is used as a form of dis-ease treatment as well as disease prevention.


Why is this Sauna the Most Effective

Infrared Sauna on the Market?

Solocarbon is a proprietary far infrared technology & is 99% efficient. The heaters are Full Spectrum, which is a unique patented technology that provides all three- near, mid, & far infrared at optimal wavelengths & are over 7x more effective for detoxification than traditional saunas. Sunlighten Saunas are the leaders in the infrared sauna industry & are the #1 Doctor Recommended sauna over any other brand because of their best-in-class quality, clinical results, & safety. With advanced LED & clinically tested technology, the sauna evolves with your changing health needs over time. Clinical studies have revealed optimal times & heating levels to target results for specific heath conditions that are pre-programmed into the sauna. 


What is the difference between Infrared Saunas

& Traditional Saunas?

Infrared heat is very gentle. The experience is similar to lying in the sun on a warm day & feeling the heat radiate to the core of your body. Unlike traditional (hot rock or steam) saunas-which operate at well in excess of 200 degrees, infrared heat has the benefit of being 7x more effective, all while being at a more comfortable operating temperature of 100 degrees -150 degrees. 

Traditional saunas heat the air vs. the body directly which can make the experience unbearably hot & difficult to breathe. Because infrared heat penetrates human tissue vs. simply heating the surface of the skin, infrared saunas are much more effective at truly detoxifying the body. By raising the body's core temp., this sauna produces a sweat composed of 20% toxins vs. only the 3% toxins with a traditional sauna.

Private Yoga Therapy

Customized Private Yoga Therapy that treats your Physical, Subtle, Psycho-Emotional, Spiritual needs & desires. This holistic treatment focuses on every aspect of your self for an All-encompassing, thorough & therapeutic spa experience. Please See the Private Yoga Therapy Page for details & inspiration. 



Chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in harmonic balance and health. Humans need the sun's light, which is broken into 7 distinct rays, to live. If there is an imbalance in these colors within our bodies, it can manifest itself in psychological, physical, or spiritual distress. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, & each vibration is related to different physical and psychological symptoms. Colortherapy works on various energy points to help your body/mind/spirit to re-establish its natural balance. It accomplishes this via the full spectrum of visible light, each color of which addresses a separate bodily need. ​


Brain Wave Music 

A series of electronic pulses layered underneath relaxing music or alone, that matches one of the brainwave frequencies that you wish to access to produce specific results. The result is a focused whole-brain state known as Hemi-Synch, where the left/right brain is working together in a state of coherence. Scientific research shows the signals are used to treat specific conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, focus, addiction, higher states of consciousness, dna repair, and pain relief just to name a few.


Breathwork & Aromatherapy Facial Steam 

Therapeutic essential oils are extracted from plants & then distilled. The highly concentrated oils are inhaled directly with a light steam which stimulates smell receptors that send messages through the nervous system to the limbic system- the part of the brain that controls emotions and then releases seretonin. The endorphins counteract anxiety, reduce pain, and induce a particular emotional quality. Essential Oils have been man's first medicine , & Science shows the beneficial effects upon the psycho-emotional body. Breathwork is combined to cleanse the respiratory system & the mental body. 


Eucalyptus & Herbs Hot Towel Cleanse

After the treatment, enjoy cleansing the entire body with hot towels steamed in organic & natural eucalyptus oils & cleanser for a fresh, tingling, all-over feel.

Detoxification Program

The Empower Sauna generates a sweat 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Sweating is the body's safe & natural way to heal & stay healthy. Unlike other saunas, The infrared heat detoxifies on a cellular level, where toxins reside. Detox strengthens the body's immune system, purifys the organs, tissue, & rids the skin of heavy metals, all while also helping the body's biochemical processes function efficiently, making the bio-available absorption rate more absorbable & effective.

Detoxification is excellent for preventive care, anyone in an immune-deficient state, any auto-immune illness & has been especially helpful for cholitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autism, ADD & ADHD, Lymphatic constipation & acidic-conditions. The Detox program is a vital tool for Preventive Care or to accilerate the healing process. Sauna Detox helps you sweat the small stuff, making your experience of life more manageable and enjoyable. 




Weightloss Program

Sunlighten Infrared heat technology is clinically shown to aid in weight loss by lowering weight & waist circumference in only 12 weeks.  Studies show that the weight loss sauna session alone, without doing any yoga, -burns 600 calories while you relax. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output & metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. When combined with a holistic fitness experience, we maximize our potential and burn even more calories while tonifying the entire body, skin, & tissues.  PIlates, Yoga, or Holistic Fitness routines  are personalized & performed both in & out of sauna pending upon preferance for balance. 



Cardio Program

Sunlighten Saunas heat your muscles with infrared rays & produce an increase in blood flow similiar to regular exercise, mirroring the benefits of a passive cardio workout.  Reports show that blood flow during the infrared session rise from a normal rate of 5-7  quarts per minute to as uch as 13quarts per minute. The cardio cleansing properties allow the circulatory system to have increased circulation & oxygen while lowering blood pressure. Signifigant blood flow is stimulated even after your treatment is complete & allows quick muscle recovery because the peripheral circulation from the infrared heat reduces inflamation. A cardio workout has never been so relaxing! Enjoy a Yoga, Pilates, or Holistic Fusion of exercises to tone & revivify the entire body/mind/spirit. Practice is performed both in regular tempatures and heated tempatures, designed by personal preference and goals. 



 Lower Blood Pressure

Research shows infrared therapy lowers blood pressure long term by inducing a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowering blood pressure. Lower Blood Pressureis achieved and stablized with infrared therapy 2 times a week.  CLinical studies show Infrared Therapy  to be a natural and effective tool to lower blood pressure, improving clinical symptoms & cardiac function as well as decreasing cardiac size  in chronic heart failure patients. Repeated treatments improve impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, & high cholesterol. This suggests a preventive role for arteriosclerosis. 


Ah-Sauna Yoga!..Choose Your Specific Program & Theme 

For Your Combined Sauna & Private Yoga Therapy Treatment:


Every Program Includes The Following Modlaities In Your 1hr Experience:


Skin Healing Program 

Scientific research has concluded that near-infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin's healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration & human tissue growth. Human cell growth repairs wounds & prevents infection.  Advanced near-infrared rays, also known as Red Light therapy has a unique ability to heal wounds faster & minimize scarring, using our infrared LEDS. No other sauna on the market has this feature. Clinical studies showed that human cell growth increased by 155%-171% & wound size decreased by 36%. 

The near-infrared therapy is the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis & dermis layers of the skin.  Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles & promote overall skin tone.  Within your 1st treatment, you will feel noticeable difference in skin suppleness & tone. Studies revealed that after only 12 weeks of near infrared therapy, participants all showed significant improvement on skins appearance including softness, elasticity, purification, exfoliation, tone & clarity.  



Pain Management Program

Infrared wavelengths penetrate tissue, joints,& muscles to relieve minor aches & pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. This therapy is used to decrease muscle spasms & increase recovery time by increasing blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal. Reduce soreness on nerve endings & experience  proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fybromyalgia, arthritis, & other painful conditions.  Explore a customized, Therapeutic and Pain Management Yoga & Meditation program with the benefits of the infrared wavelengths. 



Relaxation Program

Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing heat that promotes stress reduction & improves sleep. The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a flight or fight hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate & blood pressure & leads to the deposit of excess fat in the midsection. Scientific evidence shows infrared therapy to drop cortisol levels immediately after the treatment. Relax in comfort with an invigorating  deep tissue sweat that will have you feeling fully grounded and manageable after every session.  Combined with Brain Wave Music for Stress Reduction, Calming Color Therapy, & Restorative Yoga & Meditation, you wont be able to find a more effective program for tension relief. 



Focus on Cell Health

Near infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system & more fully oxygenates the body's cells.  Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin's surface to improve cell health & strengthen immunity.
