Using our infrared saunas for infrared therapy is like giving yourself a passive cardio workout – whenever you need it!
Our Far infrared saunas heat up your muscles and tissues 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.1
The elevation in body temperature from a Far Infrared Sauna use also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. A cardio workout has never been so relaxing! Another benefit of improved circulation from Sweatworks sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity.
…the cardiovascular cleansing properties of Sunlighten saunas allow the circulatory system to have increased circulation and oxygenation while lowering blood pressure.

Dr. Mark Hyman, New York Times bestselling author and editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed medical journal Alternative Therapies in Health & Medicine, owns a Sunlighten sauna and says, “Sunlighten saunas improve circulation, help with weight loss, balance blood sugar and improve detoxification.”
Infrared sauna therapy supports a healthy, active lifestyle.
