I Tried an At-Home LED Light Therapy Sauna

Read all about the life-changing experience.

I am a sucker for anything viral or trending, and I always want to try every single thing that sounds fun or interesting. I’m only telling you this because when I found out about the Sunlighten Solo System LED Light Portable Sauna, I instantly knew that I needed to try it.

Used by celebrities including Jennifer Anniston, LED light therapy comes with a multitude of benefits such as reduced stress, improved immune system and everything in between. Sunlight has combined the technology with an easy at-home sauna setup that only requires a room big enough to fit the “bed” as well as a few wall plugs, making it the perfect luxury feature to add to your home.

When my Sunlighten was delivered my first thought was “what have I done?” As my boyfriend and I unpacked the massive box and tried to make sense of the parts. Surprisingly, it was easy (way easier than building IKEA furniture) to put together and took less than 10 minutes, and once the bed was heated up, it was time to slip in. The thought of sliding into a tunnel-like structure wearing next to nothing may seem weird, but the comfortable cushioning and the heat makes you forget you’re sweating through your underwear after a few minutes. The structure of the bed fits your entire body, with only your head sticking out in one end, through a heat resistant bamboo towel curtain.

The sauna comes with multiple settings, allowing you to set a timer for however long you want to be in, as well as regulate the temperature. It also comes with a remote allowing you to change the colour of the LED lights, each of which comes with its own benefits. After 30 minutes with purple light blasting to “cleanse and strengthen veins and arteries,” my first sauna session was over — and I was already planning for my next one.

Being the owner of the Sunlighten LED Sauna for two weeks, I can without a doubt say that I have never felt more relaxed. There’s something unique about letting your body relax and lay down, eyes closed, without any distractions or disruptions for 20 to 30 minutes. We rarely get to take the time to reflect and focus on self-care, and with everything going on in the world right now, it is more important than ever. I’ve personally been incredibly stressed and haven’t been sleeping well, and the blue LED light not only helped me relax, but it also greatly improved my sleep. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try all of the settings, but I firmly believe that they have definite health benefits (or maybe it’s all placebo and I’m just a sauna pusher).

To sum it up: I really want a sauna now. Perhaps it is my Scandinavian roots that are tingling, but now that I’ve opened the door into the world of at-home sauna systems, I feel like there’s no going back. Unfortunately, they come with a pretty price tag and I unfortunately live in London, meaning that I neither have enough cash or space to own a full-time sauna. But hey, a girl can dream.
