5 Reasons to Buy an Infrared Sauna for your Day Spa

Are you researching infrared saunas for your day spa?

As you may have heard, infrared saunas are making waves across the wellness industry. Infrared Therapy is trending and becoming a ‘must’ for day spas, beauty salons and natural therapy businesses across Australia & New Zealand. Infrared Saunas are also being referred to as the ‘most instagrammable trend’.

“A lot of clients that I have coming in, they can feel the difference between a Sunlighten sauna and others. A lot of the time when my clients are going away for work or on holiday, they ask me ‘Where is the closest Sunlighten sauna where I am going?” - Quote from Monique James @ ODOS Wellness Studio.



Ready to investigate infrared further? Here are some of our considerations:

1) The Aesthetic Quality of Sunlighten Saunas is unsurpassed

For example, here are the running costs for our 5 Person mPulse Sauna

The mPulse 5-6 person ‘Empower’

  • Uses 4800 W divided by 1000 = 4.8 KWh (units of electricity each hour).
  • At peak time the cost of electricity per kilowatt hour was approx. 34 cents per KWh.
  • The cost of running the mPulse ‘Empower’ during peak time was 34 cents x 4.8 = $1.63 per hour.
  • At off peak time the cost of electricity per kilowatt hour was approx. 17 cents per KWh.
  • The cost of running the mPulse ‘Empower’ during off peak time was 17 cents x 4.8 = 81.6 cents per hour

4) Simple cleaning and maintenance

Your sauna is an investment that you will want to protect. For this reason, we’ve created a protocol for cleaning for your sauna.

We offer a range of natural cleaning products for hygiene and also highly absorbent Bamboo Carbon Towels to keep over your sauna. Learn more about our best tips for maintaining your sauna.

If you decide to place your saunas outdoors, to protect your warranty please keep your sauna away from unsightly conditions and cover if necessary.

5) Easy Magne-seal Assembly

Your sauna will come together easily through Sunlighten’s patented Magne-seal Assembly.

Depending on the size of your unit, we recommend using two people to assemble. Most people report being able to assemble their sauna in just over an hour.
