Enjoy the Healing Benefits of Light and Color

Enhance your sauna experience and transform your mental well-being with Chromotherapy, or color therapy, the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Chromotherapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light. Each color possesses frequencies of a specific vibration, and each vibration is related to different physical symptoms.  

This lighting feature paints your sauna with colors from the sun's visible light spectrum, creating an artful atmosphere with a balance-bringing effect. Choose the color that matches your wellness needs and feel even better.


The benefits of  Chromotherapy

Our bodies need the sun’s light to live. And that light can be broken down into a seven-color spectrum. An imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy relate the seven colors of the spectrum to specific body areas. 

At Sunlighten, we have added chromotherapy to all our saunas. With regular infrared sauna color light therapy, you can help balance your body’s energy wherever it is lacking. Chromotherapy sauna benefits include physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. This feature is unlike any other on the market. Instead of seven single-color lights, Sunlighten provides combinations of the seven-color spectrum to include 16 colors, four color-changing modes, and four brightness/intensity settings. The lights are soft and gentle and can be controlled by remote.


Color Therapy Explained

Chromotherapy is a centuries-old concept - color has been investigated as medicine since 2000 BC. Currently, people are using chromotherapy as a complementary as well as an alternative treatment option worldwide.(1)

Light is responsible for turning on the brain and the body, entering the body through the eyes and skin. When even a single photon of light enters the eye, it lights up the entire brain. This light triggers the hypothalamus, which regulates all life-sustaining bodily functions, the autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and the pituitary (the body's master gland).(2)

A Brief Overview of Chromo­therapy Colors

Ancient cultures developed medical systems based on energetic principles of the universe and the somatic cellular body. The Sanskrit principle of Ayurveda describes of the wheels of life or Chakras as originating from subtle energy known as Prana. This type of subtle energy can be modulated by electromagnetic field/visible light to stimulate the brain/nervous system, cellular tissues, and bodily organs. Visible light is emitted in the form of photons that are absorbed through the skin and the active receptors in the eyes. Once absorbed, proteins or photopigments are activated at specific wavelengths to produce chemical reactions in the body. These reactions can produce various therapeutic biochemical benefits depending on their wavelength.



Balances 1st chakra located at the base of the spine. Regulates skeletal and circulatory systems, helps relieve tension to improve energy efficiency. Can improve cellular metabolism. Helps regulate fear regarding family, finances/survival, and decreases feelings of anger. This grounding energy can return the mind/body to states of joy and happiness.



Balances the 2nd chakra, located in the lower abdomen. Regulates creativity through the reproductive organs, creative thinking, emotions and sexuality. Balancing the 2nd chakra can reduce inflammation, menstrual cramps, edema, prostate problems and bladder/urinary problems.



Balances 3rd chakra located at the solar plexus mid-torso in and around the kidneys and liver. Center of personal power, will and self-esteem. Produces a cleansing effect to purify the blood and skin, increase neuromuscular tone, and improve nervous system function.
