OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the month of April 2013, Sunlighten, the leader of far infrared saunas, is donating a portion of sales to the National Autism Association. "Autism is growing at a staggering rate. The detoxification benefits of our far and full spectrum infrared saunas are often sought after by both parents and health care providers of those on the autism spectrum. Now affecting one in 50 children, it only makes sense for us to pay it forward to this cause." says Connie Zack, Sunlighten's co-founder. The company's website is www.sunlighten.com. Sunlighten's saunas are often used by health care practitioners as a natural, non-invasive and relaxing way for a child to detoxify at the cellular level. The far infrared rays also increase blood flow to reduce the body's hold on environmental toxins and reduce inflammation caused by viral exposure. An additional therapy that Sunlighten provides is Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.). This combines the healing effects of sound and vibration within the sauna experience to balance the brainwaves bringing the body to a deeper state of relaxation. A.R.T. has been shown to significantly reduce stress, improve mood,balance the heart rate and increase circulation and enhance creativity, communication and problem solving capabilities. Autism requires a holistic lifestyle approach. Combining infrared therapy and A.R.T. provides a natural, healing environment that can benefit the whole family. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt states, "With clinically-backed infrared heaters, Sunlighten saunas aid in detoxification, blood pressure reduction, weight loss, pain relief and skin purification. Made of non-toxic materials with easy set-up, comfort and use, these are the preferred choice for treatment of autism, Lyme disease and other chronic conditions for lifetime use." According to Dr. Rachel West, infrared therapy gets the blood moving through the pathways of elimination including liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, colon and skin. "The nice thing is that far infrared actually penetrates at cellular levels so it will help clean out organ tissues and disconnect cells from toxins that may be blocking pathways and at very low heat, which is safe for children." Sunlighten manufactures the safest and most effective far infrared saunas on the market. Their proprietary Solocarbon® heaters are 95-99% efficient at emitting infrared wavelengths (highest efficacy of any other sauna on the market). The emissivity level indicates the quality and effectiveness of infrared heat. The Signature sauna series and portable Solo System sauna feature Solocarbon far infrared technology and are used by more health professionals over any other sauna brand. The mPulse® sauna series features advanced Solocarbon® Full Spectrum (the only heater to provide near, mid and far infrared) technology with six preset health programs to safely and effectively target one's health needs. Those programs are: cardio, detoxification, pain relief, weight loss, skin health and relaxation. All Sunlighten sauna lines are cost effective, eco-friendly and energy efficient making them the clear green choice.
