Gone are the days when you only had one option for a sauna. Saunas in the traditional style involve the use of steam or other heat sources to raise the temperature of a small enclosed space to 194 degrees Fahrenheit or more in order to experience a host of health benefits, not to mention the pleasure that comes with regular sessions in a sauna.
However, the intense heat that is used in the traditional type of sauna is not the most economical option and can pose a risk for those who are intolerant to high levels of heat or have other health issues. Today, the low EMF far infrared sauna offers homeowners another option.
A Low EMF far infrared system is based on using light as the main source for heating. The end result is the body is heated directly, instead of raising the air temperature to have a similar effect. Low EMF far infrared saunas only raise the temperature to a more appealing level of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, they have low levels of electromagnetic energy.
It is important to maintain low levels to avoid any threat to one's health. When choosing an infrared sauna, it is advised to select a system that uses far infrared energy to keep electromagnetic, or EMF, levels at a minimum. This enables you to enjoy the benefits of your sauna, including weight loss, relaxation, pain relief, and a release of toxins from your body, without posing a threat.
