infrared sauna sessions | BYRON BAY

Looking to detoxify your body, burn calories and rejuvenate your skin?

Our Sunlighten Infrared Saunas are the answer. They effortlessly support:


Sunlighten infrared saunas are more effective in removing toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a Sunlighten infrared sauna 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.

Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of our highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air
to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them.

Weight Loss

In a 2009 study, Sunlighten infrared saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.

The common theme among subjects in the study was that far infrared sauna use was similar to moderate exercise but "much more relaxing".

Skin Rejuvenation

A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness¹.

Sunlighten’s Solocarbon 3-in-1® is the only infrared sauna heater on the market with LED near-infrared light therapy! In fact, it comes with an anti-aging program that is designed from this study!

Cardio Fitness

A blend of near, mid and far infrared starts at a high intensity to increase heart rate and cardiac output then lowers to sustain heart rate circulation increases to promote healthy blood pressure.

Pain Relief

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.


There’s a relaxing  and effortless 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 Sunlighten 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.

At Bodyhealz Recovery Studio we have multiple infrared saunas in our brand new wellness space, catering to singles as well as groups.

What is infrared?

Infrared heat is one part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It occurs naturally as the non-harmful component of the sun's radiation. Infrared heat is safe. It is a wavelength you would experience as the gentle, penetrating warmth. The same feeling as being in a sunny room on a cold winter's day.
As a sauna heating technology, infrared is a recent innovation of the last two decades. Yet, the same technology has been used extensively. Especially in other industries from healthcare to space exploration for many decades.
Infrared Saunas by Sunlighten have been endorsed by health and wellness professionals worldwide.


WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE LIKE? The first thing people notice is a stress-relieving relaxation of the muscles. Tension melts away and the deep penetrating warmth is very soothing on aches and pains. With regular use you feel the benefits of a deep, healthy sweat that purifies your body and improves circulation. After the first session, people often notice clearer skin and a deep, restful sleep.

Far from a new technology, infrared heat has been used in a variety of health and human movement applications for many years. Sunlighten saunas use a refined heating technology called Solocarbon, which is used in day spas, gyms, training studios and health practices worldwide.
Unlike tanning beds, Sunlighten saunas use infrared heating, which is entirely different to microwaves, or ultraviolet radiation.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME? No. Fresh towels, wraps and robes are all provided or you can bring your own.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Some like to wear their bathing suits or undergarments when in the sauna, however most go in with just the towels we provide. We recommend bringing loose, comfortable clothing to change into after your session. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM applying any oils or lotions to your skin prior to entering the sauna.

CAN I BRING FRIENDS WITH ME? Yes, bring a friend for an additional $25.

NEED TO CANCEL A SESSION? We have a 5 hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel or reschedule within 5 hours of your appointment, your booking will expire. Note: early cancelled sessions more than 5 hours before your appointment do not receive a refund but rather a credit on your account.
