About

Linda Lemery, owner of Inner Light, began seeking alternative medicine after her mother lost her battle with cancer. This quest has guided her to holistic doctors, acupuncture, essential oils, chiropractic care, Reiki, and other forms of natural healing. This became her passion, and this passion inspired her to provide a place where people can come to restore, relax, and rejuvenate.

Infrared saunas are a great addition to any wellness protocol. They can provide relief from chronic pain, help your body detox, and promote cell rejuvenation. The saunas can assist in weight loss, and have anti aging benefits. They are a lovely place to sit, relax and destress...that alone is great for the body, mind and spirit!

Saunas

What is Infrared?

  • Infrared light, experienced as heat, is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum
  • Penetrates human tissue to produce a host of health benefits
  • Consists of 3 wave lengths-near, mid and far
  • Effective at a low, soothing temperature
  • 7X more effective than traditional saunas
  • Completely healthy and safe for all living things
  • Used in hospitals to warm newborn infants

What is an Infrared Sauna?

  • Infrared saunas heat the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It raises your core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.
  • Infrared saunas are a great place to relax your body and your mind.

Our saunas are enhanced with

  • Acoustic Resonance Therapy - A.R.T. combines the healing effects of sound and vibration to harmonize all systems of the body, bringing you to a deeper state of relaxation.
  • Chromotherapy - Enjoy the ancient healing method of light and color therapy to improve overall health and harmony. Chromotherapy restores various energy points to help balance the body.

How to prepare.

  • Our saunas are in individual rooms for ultimate privacy and relaxation.
  • Please make sure you are thoroughly hydrated before your sauna session.
  • Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Towels will be provided. We also offer reverse osmosis water.
  • If you would like to enjoy music during your session please bring earphones.
  • Average sessions are 30 minutes. Your room is reserved for 45 minutes so you can relax and cool down after your session.


Frequently Asked Questions.

How often should I use the sauna?
Similar to exercise, the more you do, the better the results. Recommended use is 3-4 times per week for 30-40 minutes.

Do I need a doctor’s note?
No, but if you have health concerns please consult your doctor before your sauna session.

Can I use the sauna while nursing?
Please consult with your physician. The answer is usually yes, but may be no depending on your specific circumstances.

Can I use the sauna while pregnant?
Even though infrared is completely safe, it is not recommended to use while pregnant because your core body temperature is already elevated, and you could overheat.

Are there any contraindications for sauna use?
If any of the points located here apply to you, consult your physician prior to sauna use.

Health Benefits

DETOXIFICATION

Sweating is good for you. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Far infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.” - Dr. Rachel West


RELAXATION

Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep.


  • The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.

  • According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – as well as many other health professionals – the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.

  • There’s a simple way to reduce stress! Scientific evidence shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, Sunlighten saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.



WEIGHT LOSS

In the mood to lose weight? Our infrared saunas promote weight loss by detoxifying the body and burning calories while you relax in total comfort. Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.

Q: How do saunas help me lose weight?
A: Sunlighten saunas have been proven to aid in weight loss by heating your core temperature to induce sweating. Increases in blood flow and heart rate are a result, which, much like moderate exercise, has shown to help you lose weight. Saunas also help you lose weight by easing aches and pains associated with weight training, helping you get back into the gym the next day.

Q: How much weight can I lose in a sauna?
A: There’s a lot that goes into weight loss, including your current weight, and eating and exercise habits. Just as there’s no one diet for every person, there’s no one number of pounds lost using an infrared sauna. Sessions have been shown to burn as much as 600 calories, which may be similar to an hour-long jogging session on a treadmill.

Q: How do I use a sauna to lose weight?
A: The most popular way to lose weight in an infrared sauna is to sit back and enjoy your session! But there are many more ways to enhance your session and subsequent weight loss. Like performing hot yoga while in your Sunlighten sauna. This could not only improve weight loss, but offers a host of other health benefits like flexibility and better sleep. If hot yoga sounds too strenuous, consider adding mild stretching to your sauna session. This low-impact workout is not only relaxing but it helps raise your core temperature a bit more – effectively aiding in weight loss while in the sauna. For the best weight loss results, use the 3-in-1 weight loss program that uses a combination of far and mid infrared at a high intensity to to stimulate the cardiovascular system.

Q: What is the difference in steam sauna and infrared sauna for weight loss?
A: A traditional sauna uses wet or dry heat to warm the air around you, which induces sweating. This can aid in weight loss, but it has shown that the weight loss is mainly due to loss of water – or heavy sweating. An infrared sauna heats your body from the inside out, which allows you to stay in the sauna longer and increases your heart rate. Infrared sauna use results in more calories burned in a shorter period of time. Furthermore, Solocarbon infrared heat allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to be near 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy. This is also the frequency at which a water molecule resonates or vibrates. This vibration causes a release of cellular toxins. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves weight loss efforts.


PAIN RELIEF

Infrared sauna heat penetrates tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. Pain management professionals incorporate infrared sauna heat therapy into treatment plans to decrease pain and muscle spasms and to speed up recovery time.

  • A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery compared stretching in a Sunlighten mPulse 3-in-1 sauna compared to a typical training room environment. Participants completed a series of hamstring stretches in random order with 48 hours separating the sessions. Results showed that acute flexibility increased up to 3x in the mPulse sauna than without! Benefits to the increased range of motion include joint mobility, less friction in the joints, enabling of joint function to diminish stiffness and joint relaxation.

  • A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.

  • Additionally, in a NASA study done by Dr. Whelan with near-infrared heat, determined that LED technology allows for deep penetration of tissue and increased cell growth from the inside. Sunlighten’s mPulse series–with its patented Solocarbon 3-in-1 heating technology–is the only sauna on the market that offers LED-based near infrared heat at this proven level.

  • Finally, a 2003 study conducted by the Department of Dermatology and Institute of Medical Research showed that use of near-infrared heat therapy helped the production of white blood cells to alleviate inflammation and reduce swelling, two key factors in easing bodily pain.³ Again, only mPulse’s heating technology is scientifically proven to deliver these types and levels of therapeutic near-infrared wavelengths.

"Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal."" – Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California


BLOOD PRESSURE REDUCTION

Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows the infrared sauna benefits using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.


ANTI-AGING

Near infrared wavelengths will help restore skin to a youthful appearance. Infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and heal the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Far infrared wavelengths will target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.


SKIN PURIFICATION

The near infrared wavelengths are the most effective wavelengths for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. Near infrared treatments stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone. Far infrared wavelengths target deeper down, removing toxins that can have a negative impact on your skin.

  • Acne - Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, and if you produce a lot of oil, that can lead to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat – not actual heat – which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.

  • Skin Detoxification - Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Our Solocarbon technology heats your body to the core, pulling out toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin. Learn more about infrared saunas and skin detoxification now.

  • Tone and Texture - In a study done in 2006, doctors looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.
