SAUNA PROTOCOLFollow this quick guide for the optimal sauna experience.PRE SAUNA SESSION Hydrate with at least 8 oz. of water to prepare your body for an increase in coretemperature. Pre-heat for approx. 45 minutes. Depending on room temperature, your saunawill heat up a degree per minute. Use Bamboo Carbon Towels to absorb sweat during sessions.SAUNA SESSIONS Begin your session when your sauna reaches 100 F. The optimal sauna experience occurs between 100 and 130 F. To get your body accustomed to infrared therapy, start with 10-15 minute sessionsat 100 F every other day. Gradually increase towards 40 minute daily sessions in the optimal temperaturerange.* Don’t be surprised if you don’t sweat during the first few sessions. Sweating will increase with regular use, removing toxins and leaving you feelingrefreshed and rejuvenated. For added intensity, use Pure Sweat amplifying cream to increase sweating,circulation and to boost results.POST SAUNA SESSION Drink at least 24 oz. of water or electrolyte to rehydrate. Dry off with Bamboo Carbon Towel. Cool down naturally or with a refreshing shower.

F R E Q U E N T LY A S K E D Q U E S T I O N SASSEMBLYCan I assemble my sauna outdoors?Yes, if you protect it with a Sunlighten canvas sauna cover.

Saunamanufacturer warranty is one year.How much room is required arround my sauna for setup & maintenance?We recommend 4-12 inches of clearance around the back, sides and top of the saunato access plugs and for general maintenance. Leave at least 4 inches behind the unitto allow the electronics to cool.What surfaces can I set my sauna on?You can set your sauna on tile, concrete, carpet, laminate or wood. Always have yoursauna feet installed. Remember to make sure that your sauna is level regardless of itslocation for optimal use. If your sauna is placed outdoors, make sure there is adequatedrainage so that water cannot pool around the base of the sauna. If placed near or oncool surfaces (like concrete and basement walls), warm-up can be impacted.How do I install Chromotherapy and Acoustic Resonance Therapy?Sauna accessories have separate user manuals. Refer to the appropriate GEHow long does it take for my sauna to warm up?The controls are preset to 60 minutes at 150 F. However, the inside cabin temperatureis not intended to reach this. Our saunas are based on the infrared wavelength and notcabin temperature. Allow the sauna to warm up for 45-60 minutes. The sauna heatsup at an average of 1 degree per minute. If located outside or in unheated garage,additional warm-up time may be required. If you prefer the sauna hotter, let it warmup longer.Can I use my sauna everyday?For most people, daily sauna use is okay after your body has become accustomedto infrared therapy. Drink increased amounts of water to stay hydrated. Listen to yourbody and stop your session if you feel any discomfort.10

How long can I use it each day?40 minutes is the recommended session length. See the sauna protocol on pg. 27.What is the best temperature to use my sauna?First, it is important to understand that health benefits are a result of efficient infraredemissivity, not air temperature. Sunlighten saunas are 95-99% emissive to deliver thehighest concentration of infrared. With that, the optimal sauna experience occursbetween 100-130 F. During your first few sessions, start at a lower temperature of100 F and gradually increase in later sessions. Everyone has different preferences andtolerances for heat. The most important thing is to listen to your body. Keep in mind,if you’re sweating at 115 F you’re getting the same benefits as if you’re sweating at150 F.What is the micron range of the heaters?The design of a Solocarbon heater allows for most of the far infrared wavelength to benear 9.4 microns, which is the level at which the human body absorbs infrared energy.Can I touch the heaters?No. Do not touch the bare heater surface when the heaters are on, or have recentlybeen on.How much will the sauna cost to run a month?The sauna runs on the same wattage as a blow dryer and will cost very little to runmonthly: typically 15 to 35 cents per hour. This varies with model and your local utilitycost. Your utility company can help you understand a more exact per hour cost ifneeded.Are the EMF levels safe?Yes. Patented Solocarbon panels are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten to ensurethe safety and effectiveness of each individual heater.What is the wattage, voltage, and amps of my sauna?See electrical specifications on page 4.Why do you recommend using Bamboo Carbon towels?Bamboo Carbon towels will make your sauna experience more comfortable and willkeep the sauna clean. Bamboo Carbon is anti-fungal and deodorizing, emits infraredrays and is highly absorbent. Use on the bench, floor and backrests for optimumcomfort and cleanliness. Bamboo Carbon towels can be purchased at www.sunlighten.com/shop.11

MAINTENANCEHow do I clean my sauna?Sunlighten’s Natural Sauna Cleaner is made specifically for use with your sauna. Atleast every six months, dampen a cloth with Sunlighten All Natural Wood Cleaner.Clean glass door and windows with Sunlighten All Natural Glass Cleaner. You maydust the outside of the sauna with a dry dust cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners onyour sauna. Light sandpaper can be used to treat stains on the inside of the sauna.Sunlighten Natural Sauna Cleaning Kit can be purchased at store.sunlighten.com.How do I care for the heater fabric?The heater fabric remains as a covering over the heater panels. This is to protect theheater surfaces from any scratches, etc. It is also there to prevent physical contactbetween the skin and the heaters as the sauna is being used. To clean, wipe fabric withslightly damp cloth. We recommend doing so at least once every six months. Only doso when sauna is turned off.Is it normal to see cracks in the wood?Yes, wood is a living material that continues to respond to climate conditions, evenafter being manufactured into a sauna. During normal operation, wood may crackslightly due to changes in moisture level. These cracks may appear or disappear withthe changing seasons, but will not affect the structural integrity of the sauna. Oursaunas are shipped around the globe, and can experience slight blemishes, scratches,or scuffs from the transit of this sauna. In most cases these blemishes on the exteriorof the room can be concealed by using a small amount of furniture polish, oil, or otherfurniture treatment. The interior blemishes, scratches, or scuffs can be either left alone,sanded, or combination of gluing and sanding. Please avoid any treatment containing,benzene, or a high concentration of alcohol. However, if you detect major cracking ordamage that jeopardizes the functionality of your sauna, please submit pictures towww.sunlighten.com/customer-care.12
