BASK IN THE HEAT 

WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA?

Infrared Sauna technology radiates heat tuned to the temperature of our bodies. It works like a sunny day and 93% of the energy penetrates below the skin. Our Sunlighten Infrared Sauna seats two comfortably.  Relax by yourself or with a friend with one of our 6 different settings.
