Last winter we teamed up with our pals at Sunlighten Saunas to giveaway a portable Solopad to a family in the GR community. As we learned from Dr. Amy Myers, infrared therapy is a great tool to boost detox through a safe, healthy sweat-session.
We recently checked in with the winner of the Solopad, Heather, to see how her family is doing after seven months of implementing infrared.
Heather’s Story: 7 Months of Infrared Sauna Therapy
The Sunlighten SoloPad from Sunlighten Saunas has changed the lives of Heather and her family for the better! “I love the Sunlighten SoloPad! My 6-year-old son, who has autism, my 4-year-old neuro-typical daughter, and I are all using the SoloPad 5 days a week,” Heather said. “My kids lay on it for about 10 minutes a session and I go 45 minutes or so, working up slowly.
This Summer we took a break from using our SoloPad to enjoy the outdoors, but then my son’s bacteria loads starting flaring back up and we stimming behaviors and OCD back in full-force. Now, we’re back to using the SoloPad for about two weeks and the stimming has degreased significantly. The SoloPad is an amazing detox tool!” 🌞
