Regarding New Infrared Sauna Technology
Sunlighten’s revolutionary mPulse Sauna featured by national health magazine in its January cover story
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 14, 2010, Los Angeles – The Doctors’ Prescription for Healthy Living magazine announced today that its January issue cover storyincludes an interview with Aaron and Connie Zack, the founders of Sunlighten (formerly Sunlight Saunas), the sales leader in the infrared sauna industry. The Zacks explain the breakthrough advanced technology used in their mPulse Sauna line—namely, customized programmable options for far, mid, and near infrared heat to target specific health needs. The interview will be published in the monthly magazine and distributed to health food stores nationwide in January.
The cover story in Healthy Living is part of a wave of recent media recognition for Sunlighten. Sunlighten’s new mPulse Series infrared sauna was recommended this month on a very popular national daytime talk show which focuses on health, and Sunlighten Saunas were also recently featured in the most popular national daytime talk show in a segment called “High-Tech Ways to Extend Your Life”. Aaron Zack explains why Sunlighten has earned the extraordinary media exposure: “Sunlighten is dedicated to improve sauna performance, cutting edge technology and user convenience.” Sunlighten has pushed the boundaries of the existing infrared sauna industry with its new mPulse Series.
Connie Zack speaks to how the mPulse was envisioned. “We wanted to create a health tool that allows you to be in the driver’s seat of your health. Something very customized. With mPulse, you can adjust the temperature and type of infrared heat to best target your health goal—whether it is lowering blood pressure, burning calories, or relieving back pain. You can also measure your heart rate and track your progress at the company’s wellness website. There is also sound therapy in the sauna. The musical vibrations are designed to take you into a state of deep relaxation.”
The Zacks describe Sunlighten’s health-focused mission: “We are in the business of disease prevention. We want to help people stay healthy.” Infrared saunas have been shown to be beneficial for detoxification, weight loss, relaxation, pain relief, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation and skin purification. Sunlighten Saunas are the only sauna to be used in a clinical study, conducted by researchers at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, who found that regular 30-minute infrared sauna sessions lowered blood pressure. According to Aaron Zack, “Sunlighten Saunas are recommended by more doctors and other health professionals than any other sauna.”
The Zacks’ vision for Sunlighten began nine years ago. Connie explains, “My brother suffered from debilitating chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia…. He could barely get out of bed. I was so concerned [to see] this healthy young man’s life destroyed. Then infrared sauna therapy was recommended to him for detoxification. He purchased a sauna and cured himself.” The Zacks were dumbfounded by the power of infrared technology to make such a dramatic positive difference in Connie’s brother’s life.
Aaron adds, “We hear from so many customers who have suffered terribly from auto-immune disorders or pain or arthritis and who are completely transformed and restored to health with regular use of our infrared saunas.”
Today, Sunlighten is the sales leader in the infrared sauna industry. Recently, the company changed its name from Sunlight Saunas to Sunlighten to expand its product line beyond infrared saunas. New patent-pending technology is in the mPulse Series in the form of its Solocarbon® Custom Spectrum heaters, which have the greatest capability to precisely target health needs. In harmony with its mission to improve health, Sunlighten donates a portion of its proceeds every year to the American Heart Association.
In terms of environmental impact, Sunlighten Saunas are designed to use minimal electricity and will add only 10 to 15 cents per use to a monthly electric bill. The Sunlighten mPulse Series is constructed from sustainably harvested wood (cedar, teak or hypoallergenic basswood) certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
About Infrared Technology
The infrared rays used in a Sunlighten Sauna provide the same natural radiant heat emitted by the sun, but without the hazards of skin-damaging UV rays. Infrared heat penetrates deeply into the skin, raising the body’s core temperature without heating the air, as occurs in traditional saunas. Infrared heat produces a deeper sweat at a lower temperature, making the sauna a more comfortable environment. Infrared rays will never burn the skin, and don’t heat up the surface of the sauna, so you won’t burn yourself on the benches or walls. Infrared heat is so safe, in fact, that it is used as a heat source in incubators for newborn infants.
Founded in 1999, Sunlighten (formerly Sunlight Saunas) offers innovative wellness products that bolster individuals' health and vitality through technology. Sunlighten's infrared saunas can help detoxify the body and provide pain relief, and has been clinically shown to aid in weight loss & reduce blood pressure.
