Welcome to Better Health with RASA’s Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna!
There are numerous health benefits to using Infrared Saunas. The infrared sauna has the ability to safely and effectively deliver the sun’s naturally healing radiant heat. The settings range from NEAR-Infrared (N) light that aids in pain and muscle relief, to MID-Infrared (M) light that assists in fat burning and weight loss, to FAR-Infrared (F) light that deepens the core sweat and is whole-body detoxifying. The Sunlighten proprietary Solocarbon heaters provide 7x more effective detoxification than those found in traditional saunas AND are the only infrared technology with clinical data shown to reduce blood pressure, increase core temperature and aid in weight loss.
This is a “cozy” two person sauna. It is most comfortable for one person or for two people who are comfortable in close quarters.
Sunlighten, the company who makes these saunas, has done extensive research to discover which settings are ideal for specific benefits. The sauna also has health benefits beyond these settings, so just being in the sauna has plenty of health benefits. Below are the programs &/or the Classic Sessions with their times and prices.
Classic / Anti-Aging (N) / Weight Loss (M, F) / Pain Relief (N, M) / Wound Healing (N, M, F) (30 minutes) :

Optional Enhancements for Added Benefits!
SO Sound Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T.) creates vibrations that resonate throughout the body. Feeling the music we hear can affects many different body systems. It can help with sleep, pain, relaxation, depression, anxiety, and more. Visit these linked articles on the affects of sound stress, mental and emotional health as well fibromyalgia and more, another on fibromyalgia, and a look into neurochemistry and music.
Chromotherapy is a method of treatment that uses the visible spectrum (colors) of electromagnetic radiation to help treat health issues. Each color possesses specific frequencies which have been shown to positively impact different systems of the body. You can read more from a study about the history and applications of chromotherapy and visit this webpage for more links to other information.

Contraindications and Precautions:
As with all professional equipment, you may put yourself at risk if you do not fully understand how to use the sauna. Infrared sauna use as creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred. Drinking an electrolyte-replacing water or drink is strongly recommended before and after use.
– Never sleep inside the sauna while it is on
– Altering or tampering with any electrical connections on the power supply is dangerous.
If any of the items listed below apply to you, be certain to consult with your physician before using an infrared sauna.
Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
The core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation to increased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. When using with a child, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. When using with the elderly, operate at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time.
Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature. With the release of a physician, operate the sauna at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time for people with these health concerns.
Alcohol / Alcohol Abuse
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated with Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire
Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. With a release of a physician, operate the sauna at a lower temperature and for no more than 15 minutes at a time for people with these health concerns.
Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone to Bleeding
The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides.
Insensitivity to Heat
Individuals with insensitivity to heat should not use an infrared sauna.
Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
Pacemakers / Defibrillators
The magnets used to assemble our wooden saunas (not used in the Solo System) can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
In the rare event that you experience pain and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
EMF (electric and magnetic fields) are waves of electric and magnetic energy radiating through space. High EMF levels are often associated with power lines.
EMF is everywhere in our homes and offices. The electrical appliances we use (an electric can opener at close range emits substantial EMFs), computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, wireless modems, cordless phones, clock radios, hair dryers, mobile phones, microwave ovens and more – all produce EMFs.
Despite the extensive research over the last 20 years, the general scientific consensus is that there is not sufficient evidence to show a definitive cause and effect relationship in regards to EMF exposure. Two national research organizations (the National Research Council and the National Institute of Health) have looked at the studies and have concluded that there is not strong evidence that EMF exposures pose a health risk. Currently in the U.S., there are no standards limiting exposure to EMF.
Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF. For that reason, we have limited the levels of EMF from our heaters as much as possible.
The EMF levels of Sunlighten saunas are well below the threshold of what is generally considered safe, and in fact, produce less EMF than a standard hair dryer. The EMF attributable to a hair dryer at 6″ away is about 300 mG. Our saunas have been measured between 0 and 10 mG. (EMFs are measured in units called milligauss (mG).)
