A Review of Jacuzzi’s Clearlight Sanctuary Infrared Sauna

Hi guys, today I’m talking about one of the newest items we’ve incorporated into our health routine – the full spectrum infrared sauna by Jacuzzi!

Saunas have been around for centuries, with the oldest dating back to around the 1100s. These days they’re mostly found in health clubs and spas, but companies like Jacuzzi have made it possible for you to also enjoy them in the comfort of your own home!

After spending hours researching and comparing brands, we decided on Jacuzzi’s Clear Light Sanctuary model.

This is a full spectrum infrared sauna that features cleverly placed Low EMF True Wave™ Full Spectrum heaters in the front, on the back wall, side wall, under the bench, next to your calves, and in the floor. This placement helps to concentrate the heat evenly on your body, surrounding you with high quality infrared heat.

The size of this model is not overpowering, and it can still comfortably fit my husband and I. This model is meant for one person, but we do sit in it together (for reference I am 5’0” and my husband is 5”11”). We chose the classic cedar wood finish, which smells amazing when it heats up!

One of my favorite features is the ability to play music, audiobooks, etc. through the overhead speakers. There’s also a power source to use other devices (like an iPad or salt therapy device, which we purchased separately), as well as the ability to use essential oils for aromatherapy during your sessions. 

The touch screen pad is also super convenient for controlling temperature, time, and lighting.

So What Exactly Is Infrared?

Infrared radiation is an invisible form of electromagnetic energy, and it’s wavelength is longer than that of visible light. Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4935255/

Infrared radiation is categorized according to wavelength:

Near infrared (wavelength of 0.8–1.5 µm)

  • Penetrates the deepest
  • This is the wavelength most often used in procedures to help speed healing and increase cellular repair, due to it’s ability to stimulate ATP production

Middle infrared (wavelength of 1.5–5.6 µm)

  • Helps to bring more oxygen to areas needing healing
  • Can increase heart rate and metabolism

Far infrared (wavelength of 5.6–1000 µm)

  • Close to the wavelength of heat given off by our bodies
  • Said to help increase energy in the body and help in removal of toxins through sweating, urine, and feces
  • Various studies have shown that far infrared has the ability to increase artery blood flow and peripheral blood circulation, improve endothelial cell function, alleviating fatigue and pain,  reduce blood pressure, and promote capillary dilatation Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4935255/

The Clear Light Sanctuary uses a combination of all three to provide the greatest benefits.

In addition to infrared heat, the sauna also surrounds you with medical grade chromotherapy lighting. You have the option to select an individual color or use the “auto” mode to have the unit cycle through the all of the colors. 


Final Thoughts

After completing multiple sessions, I would say that the Jacuzzi line of saunas are well-built, comfortable, and effective. They’re a great option for personal sauna use, and I recommend browsing their website to learn more about the benefits of infrared and the technology that goes into all of their saunas.

While the term “superfood” has been thrown around a lot over the past few years, it seems to be fitting for spirulina. A type of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) that flourishes in warm alkaline water, spirulina is said to have numerous health benefits, many of which are backed by research.
Below I’m listing 10 of these science-backed benefits, plus a few risks to be aware of. (And before you start to wonder about the taste, it is basically tasteless when added to most food or drinks.) 🙂

Antioxidants: What They Are And Why We Need Them!

What are antioxidants and why do we need them?


You’ve heard it before; “Make sure you’re getting those antioxidants!” But what exactly is an antioxidant, and why are they so important?

As a Cell & Molecular Biology major, I have to admit that I geek out a little when it comes to learning about the human body on a cellular level. I find it so fascinating, and I have decided to start sharing more posts and info about what I’ve learned through my studies. I hope you guys enjoy the topics, and if there are specific things that you’d like to learn more about feel free to reach out and let me know!

For today’s post, I’m discussing antioxidants and explaining why we need these little free radical scavengers in our bodies! 🙂 Continue reading “Antioxidants: What They Are And Why We Need Them!”

We’ve all heard the classic rule — “Drink 8 glasses of water per day” — But is that a one size fits all recommendation?  The short answer is no.  Everyone’s body is different, and depending on our diet and activity level, we all need different amounts of water to keep our body functioning at it’s best.

So how much water do you really need?

Think about how much water we use and lose in one day through breathing, perspiration, urination, and bowel movements.  Because we use and lose all of this water during the day, it’s important to replenish our body’s water supply.  The Institute of Medicine suggests that men need about 13 cups (3 liters) of water a day, while women need about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of water a day.

So how can you know if you’re getting enough water?  Below are 5 signs that your body may be craving more. Continue reading “Are You Drinking Enough Water? How Much You Need & How To Know if You Need More”
