What is Infrared?
Infrared light (experienced as heat) is the invisible part of the sun's spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for all Sunlighten™ saunas. Our sauna uses Solocarbon® Far Infrared Technology - most effective far infrared heat available.
If a sauna is not efficient at emitting infrared, you are not receiving the benefits of infrared! Generic carbon blend heaters are less than 85% effective. Solocarbon® far infrared heaters are 95% efficient at emitting infrared.
WEIGHT LOSS: Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE: Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Scientific evidence shows using an infrared sauna a couple times a week lowers blood pressure.
DETOXIFICATION: Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
PAIN RELIEF Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
RELAXATION: Unlike traditional saunas which operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep. Infrared sauna benefits include therapy that helps you relax while receiving an invigorating deep tissue sweat, leaving you fully refreshed after each session.
IMPROVED CIRCULATION: Heating the muscles with infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. Regular infrared sauna use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.

"My first opportunity to visit Sisters Health Club was last year, probably in May or early June. I met with Kristy Butterfield to see if she would be interested in working with me to be able to run a 5K in October, 2013. Kristy and I visited at length about the commitment I would need to make and what would be expected of me. We worked out a plan to meet 3 days a week beginning in early August. I used Sisters Health Club facilities during my training sessions with Kristy. The staff was very supportive in my efforts as well as the members I would meet at the mirror when we were finished with workouts and all trying to get ready for work!
I can’t say enough about the facilities, the staff, and the members – all are TERRIFIC! After training with Kristy for a little over 2 months, I joined the club after completing my first 5K as a runner. I would not have been able to meet my goal of running a 5K without the support of Kristy Butterfield, the staff at Sisters and the use of the facilities there.
I enjoy the variety of classes provided, the various times, and a facility that offers so much more than exercise. Sister’s Health Club is about total fitness, mind, body, and spirit! I love the fact this is a club for women only; you are so much more at ease – no gawking guys! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!"
'I really enjoy the staff. They care about you as a person. You are not just another member. The classes are varied for all levels of exercise and you get support from the other members. I do like it is for women only. It is a real comfortable place to come. I can come tired or not feeling the best but leave feeling good, ready for the day."
"A great variety of classes and exercise equipment, support from staff and members combine to make it a sisterly atmosphere. Where else can you go to laugh and have fun while you exercise? Convenient location with more than adequate parking.Sisters creates a caring, fun place where women can go to exercise, make friends, and help relieve life's stresses.Sisters accommodates women of all ages and varying exercise abilities."
"I love coming to Sister’s for a variety of reasons! Most likely the biggest factor is that it is women only; because it is a small gym I always feel at ease when I walk through the door. The staff are knowledgeable about the equipment and always willing to show you something new. The classes are challenging but you are always encouraged to listen to your body and work at your own pace…. I’m so much healthier now than I was five years ago when I walked through the door for the first time..."
