Infrared Saunas And EMF

We are constantly surrounded by EMF through the devices we use and those that are in our homes and workplaces e.g. Wifi, phones, smartwatches, ceiling lights etc. Being exposed to EMF is all part of the world we live in. EMF exposure is related to your proximity to the item that is creating the EMF and the amount of time we are nearby. 

When it comes to EMF exposure, there are also varying levels of energy that is transmitted - high energy devices are the ones we need to be mindful about (e.g. microwaves, telecommunications). Infrared saunas generally transmit low, safe levels of EMF (EMF levels do vary between saunas though). The amount of time you spend in your sauna (we recommend 30-45min, 3-4 times a week) is minimal, especially compared to other devices or items we have exposure to daily.
