Gua Sha ~ A healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine that uses a crystal gemstone to apply pressure and move the skin to relieve pain and tension. It also clears stagnation and accumulation, promotes lymphatic drainage and cell renewal, renews facial contour, firm and lifts sagging skin, reduces inflammation and puffiness, diminishes blemishes, and relieves tension.
Infrared ~ Supports detoxification, anti-inflammatory, relaxation, immunity, muscle recovery & overall vitality. Sunlighten’s highly efficient, SoloCarbon infrared heating technology gives you the best detoxification experience because it is clinically proven to raise core body temperature by three degrees. You experience a deep, productive sweat from your cells as the SoloCarbon infrared waves penetrate your skin and heat your core to expel the toxins, rather than just sitting in hot, ambient air that only heats your outer skin.
This creates an enjoyable experience of more productive sweat, rather than an uncomfortable, stifling hot and less-productive sweat. Research shows specific light frequencies have specific activity. NIR has the perfect wavelength (880 nm) to penetrate skin best. When NIR is applied to the skin, fibroblast cells absorb light activity, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, those increases create thicker, younger-looking skin, decrease lines, fade scars, and promote skin renewal, cell health, and tissue growth.
