At Stephens Chiropractic and Wellness, we offer Sunlighten mPulse Infrared Sauna Therapy – Sunlighten’s SoloCarbon technology is the BEST on the market! The mPulse is the world’s first and ONLY full spectrum infrared dry sauna to offer all 3 wavelengths in one to provide you with the most effective sauna experience. With the optimal infrared output achieved from each wavelength, you will receive the maximum health benefits possible enabling you to reach your health goals even faster! The mPulse features six different programs designed to help you reach your individual health goals:
Cardiovascular (45 min. session)
This program starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain your heart rate level. Circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.
Detoxification (37 min. session)
Detoxification from an infrared sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than from a traditional sauna. In a traditional sauna, the average person will sweat out 3% toxins and 97% water compared to 20% toxins and 80% water in the infrared dry sauna. This program starts at a high intensity to increase your body’s core temperature then reduces to a low, comfortable intensity level. The infrared combination used in this program improves the vascular access flow to reach the toxins at the cellular level.
Pain relief (30 min. session)
This program offers an infrared blend that provides natural pain relief by reducing inflammation and swelling. Near infrared wavelengths penetrate the tissue to promote cellular repair at a medium, constant intensity level to relieve back, neck, and arthritis pain.
Relaxation (40 min. session)
Stress-related problems account for 75-90% of all primary care physician appointments. This program includes far, mid and near infrared rays to induce a deep relaxation as they relieve muscle tension at a low, comfortable intensity promoting overall stress reduction with regular use.
Weight loss (30 min. session)
A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! This program starts 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 heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate similar to exercise.
Anti-Aging (30 min. session)
This program maintains a low, constant intensity level that penetrates the tissue to help with various skin concerns. Near infrared wavelengths improve overall skin tone, elasticity and firmness promoting anti-aging benefits. This program also aids in eczema, psoriasis, acne, and lessens the appearance of scars and cellulite.
