What is Infrared?

With the ability to penetrate human tissue, infrared light, which is the basis for all Sunlighten saunas, is a naturally occurring part of the sun’s spectrum that provides significant health benefits using heat. Infrared saunas offer a safe and all-natural experience, as you would feel laying under the sun out on a beautiful, relaxing day—only better without the UVA/UVB rays damaging your skin.

Our infrared sauna in Melbourne also helps you improve your heart health. We soothe your sore muscles and help improve recover from intense diseases.

Why Infrared over Traditional Saunas?

While traditional heaters such as hot rock or steam saunas warm the air, infrared saunas directly heat the body, making it a more gentle and pleasant experience. Because infrared saunas operate at a lower temperature, there is no experience with shortness of breath or heat exhaustion. Infrared saunas are seven times more effective than traditional saunas by producing sweat composed of 20% toxins versus the 3% produced by a traditional sauna during the detoxifying process.

At The Orchard Prahran during a naturally detoxifying half-hour therapy session, the Sunlighten Infrared Solo Sauna will provide more wellness and healing to you, with benefits such as lower blood pressure, induced weight loss, and reduction in pain and inflammation. You will be wrapped in a completely private solo sauna to give you a relaxing and intimate experience. Described by Sunlighten as a “sleeping bag for your soul,” our new Infrared Solo Sauna offers the following extended benefits:

  • Lower diastolic and systolic blood pressure
  • Reduced volume of blood vessel inner-lining
  • Increased circulation to promote healthier blood pressure
  • Induce weight loss and reduce waist circumference
