Introducing the mPulse by Sunlighten!
Not all sauna's are equal! Experience the difference. The mPulse sauna from Sunlighten is a FULL SPECTRUM medical grade infrared sauna. It uses far, mid and near infrared waves to achieve a variety of results. This sauna is used one person at at a time, for privacy and relaxation. It features a touch screen tablet with seven preset programs to choose from. Choose the music and lighting that suits your mood. Sessions vary from 30-45 minutes depending on your program of choice. Before scheduling a sauna session, please consult with your doctor to make sure it is safe for you and any medical conditions you may have.

Detoxification, muscle healing/repair, anti aging, weight loss and boosting the immune system are a few of the benefits the mPulse has to offer. In addition, it can be very helpful to people with autoimmune diseases!
For those who suffer from autoimmune diseases, conventional medicine can be very challenging and confusing. First, let’s start with the basics. What is an autoimmune disease? “One of the functions of the immune system is to protect the body by responding to invading microorganisms, such as viruses or bacteria, by producing antibodies or sensitized lymphocytes (types of white blood cells). Under normal conditions, an immune response cannot be triggered against the cells of one’s own body. In some cases, however, immune cells make a mistake and attack the very cells that they are meant to protect. This can lead to a variety of autoimmune diseases. They encompass a broad category of related diseases in which the person’s immune system attacks his or her own tissue.”
Before we dive deeper into a few autoimmune diseases, let’s discuss what they all have in common – infrared light therapy can help relieve some of the symptoms. “How,” do you ask? Sunlighten infrared saunas work by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, Sunlighten’s patented Solocarbon® infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps relieve pain. Solocarbon® technology is proven to raise the core body temperature by at least three degrees. This not only warms the body, but helps calm the nerves, also reducing pain. Surrounded by soothing warmth, you can let the outside world slip away and feel your muscles release tension, a feature that is especially appealing for someone diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.
Some autoimmune diseases that benefit from these sessions are:

Our infrared saunas operate with the same efficacy in your home as in a medical facility. Like all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Drinking an electrolyte-replacing water or a sports drink is strongly recommended before and after use.
Never sleep inside the sauna while it is on
Do not use harsh cleaning agents on the interior of the sauna
Do not stack or store objects on top of or inside the sauna
Do not use during an electrical storm, as there is a remote risk of shock
If any of the below apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use:
Cardiovascular Issues, Obesity or Diabetes – Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes should consult a physician prior to use. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Medications – Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician since some medications may induce drowsiness, while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Alcohol & Drug Abuse – Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. The use of alcohol, drugs or medications prior to a sauna session may lead to unconsciousness.
Elderly – The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. If elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Children – The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With Reduced Ability To Sweat Or Perspire – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Consult a physician.
Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding – The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Fever & Insensitivity to Heat – Individuals with insensitivity to heat or who have a fever should not use the sauna until the fever subsides.
Pregnancy – Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. This should not preclude sauna use.
Joint Injury – Recent (acute) joint injury should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using.
Pacemakers / Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble our saunas can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
