About Sunlighten Day Spa
If you have lived in the Johnson County area for ten years or more, you are probably familiar with what is still referred to as the “old Sun Publications” building. Even though the current resident has been there for over a decade, there is still a lot of mystery as to what is in that building. Is it a day spa? Is it some sort of showroom? It is a gym? What is that place?
It is a place for healing. A place for empowerment. A place to invest in you. That place is Sunlighten. Shining light on infrared therapy, Sunlighten® is the global provider of personalized infrared light therapy that empowers customers for healthier living.
Owners Aaron and Connie Zack have always wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. They had a vision of creating a business that would help people achieve their wellness goals, develop healthy lifestyles, and maintain vitality for the long-term. Sunlighten was founded after Connie’s brother, Jason Jeffers, overcame nearly a decade of illness using infrared therapy. Since then, the Zacks have pioneered the sauna industry with the most effective infrared saunas for both residential and commercial use.
Sunlighten’s patented technology delivers the highest dose of infrared energy to the body, proven 95-99% effective. In fact, their patented SoloCarbon® infrared light panels are the only infrared source clinically shown to raise the core-body temperature nearly three degrees for the most detoxifying sweat, a lower blood pressure, aid weight loss and assist with pain relief.
Their most advanced technology, developed right here in Johnson County, is the mPulse® 3 in 1® infrared sauna. It is the only sauna that can truly offer near, mid and far infrared energy, all of which affect the body differently. With programs for detoxification, weight loss, anti-aging, relaxation, cardio and pain relief, it is truly customizable for each user. The Android-powered control panel with built-in media apps like Netflix and Pandora allow you to control the whole sauna experience in your own home.
While Sunlighten is a global brand with distribution all over the world, the Zacks wanted to make this healing therapy readily available in their own backyard. Their passion to serve the Kansas City community led to the creation of Sunlighten Day Spa.
“We opened Sunlighten Day Spa in February 2008 with the vision of providing a retreat for Kansas Citians to experience Sunlighten infrared treatments, which was already available in upscale spas, hotels and wellness centers all over the world. Our vision quickly expanded to a full-service day spa with massage, facials and body treatments. As we’ve grown, we have strived to keep the community feel within an upscale retreat in the heart of Overland Park.”
Sunlighten Day Spa is focused on services that promote natural healing. Sunlighten infrared sauna memberships, deep tissue massage, organic facials and body contouring are just a few offerings on the menu. If you’re looking for a quick escape during the holidays, Sunlighten Day Spa could be the ticket. Treat yourself to a full package of services or plan a spa party for you and your closest friends. And while you are there, you can check off those on your “good list” with unique gifts from local vendors in their spa boutique. A Sunlighten Day Spa gift card makes an excellent stocking stuffer!
“My favorite spa! I look forward to every visit, knowing I’m going to receive great service in such a relaxing environment. Ayla is an amazing, knowledgeable esthetician who takes the time to get to know each client and their specific skin care needs. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!” -Josie
“ Sunlighten saunas are The absolute BEST for maintaining my health.” -Daryl
“What a great way to spend your birthday! I had the 3 hour Sunlight Glow package and it was great all the way through. Bri did amazing with my first ever facial and my massage by Brittany was good too. The sauna session helped relax my body even more. One day after and I still feel relaxed! I loved the facility from the rose petal soak to the light snack and all the services in between. I plan to return to be pampered again. ” -Erica
