Some of the most-acclaimed features include:

With such praise from a range of professionals in health and wellness, fitness, and nutrition, it’s hard to ignore the presence Sunlighten has in the infrared sauna market today.

Quality materials

Sunlighten use non toxic materials that have been tested 100 percent safe for consumer use, and make sure that their manufacturing processes leave no residue behind that could generate off gases or toxic residue.

Keeping up their eco credentials, Sunlighten saunas are made from socially and environmentally responsible wood. PEFC- and FSC-certified timber products are used in sauna construction, including the prized Western Canadian cedar, hypoallergenic basswood, and fragrance-free eucalyptus.


Different types of wood contribute to a sauna’s overall quality.

In fact, Sunlighten are the only infrared sauna company that offer basswood construction, which is unique as it is the only timber not listed on the toxic chart, and has no reported allergic reactions. Options such as these go to show that Sunlighten is maintaining their stronghold in the sauna market, and are investing in your health as well as the growth of the brand.

Low EMF heaters

Sunlighten has created the patented Solocarbon heaters, that claim to be the only far infrared heater on the market that is clinically shown to raise your core temperature, lower your blood pressure, and aid in weight loss efforts.

It’s a big claim based on Sunlighten’s ultra low electromagnetic frequency (EMF) technology, which is incorporated into the heater design. Claiming to produce virtually no EMF radiation due to their manufacturing process and exclusive material selection, their infrared heaters form the cornerstone of all their exciting infrared sauna products

Packed with additional features

Sunlighten saunas offer a range of impressive and useful features for their saunas, some included and some add-on, which make the saunas a versatile choice. Such features include:

Acoustic resonance therapy

At an additional cost upon purchase, you can opt to have your Sunlighten sauna equipped with the acoustic resonance therapy option, to assist you with relaxation and healing.

The company’s SO Sound enhancement is installed underneath the bench seat, and combines the healing effects of sound and vibration to balance your brainwaves. Low frequency sound waves take you into alpha state, where your relaxation heightens and your body is able to heal more effectively.


Sauna assembly has never been so easy. The patented Magne-Seal magnetic locking system developed by Sunlighten means there are no need for clips to hold your sauna together. The simplicity of the magnetic clip system means there is no need for complicated instruction manuals, and the sauna can be assembled in a short time.

In addition, the magnetic clips allow the sauna panels to expand and contract with heat, create a better seal, are more durable, and provide a more secure means of sauna assembly.


Chromotherapy is used to adjust the vibrations of your body so that they align with frequencies that are more harmonious with a relaxed, restorative state.

Sunlight consists of seven distinct rays, all of which are required in certain proportions by the human body to function efficiently. Chromotherapy uses these wavelengths of light to help your body re-establish a vibrational balance. Sunlighten saunas provide you with an option to install a chromatherapy lighting system to take advantage of this natural light therapy, increasing the effectiveness of your sauna.
