The world that we live in is increasingly full of electrical devices and appliances and therefore demands that each of us begin to learn and understand the potential health hazards that electrical appliances, both big and small may have on our long term health. Research into the effects that electro-magnetic fields (emfs) may have on human physiology has evolved and expanded significantly to encompass nearly every aspect of electrical usage in everyday life.
For anyone looking to purchase a sauna, among the first queries will be: What is the emf reading for this sauna? If I am trying to improve my overall health and wellness, will the emfs emitted from the saunas counteract the health benefits? While these are both reasonable and brave questions to ask, the reality is that all appliances, once plugged into an electrical outlet will emit some level of an emf reading, so the question becomes how low can an emf reading possibly be with the best technology available on the market today?
A zero emf reading is impossible so long as electrical appliances are involved, however it is possible to improve the reading so that it is as low as possible, particularly when the appliance is being used for the sake of wellness.
As you look for the ideal sauna for your needs you may want to consider upgrading your purchase from a low emf sauna to an ultra low emf sauna. Firstly, what is the difference between a low emf sauna and an ultra low emf sauna, secondly, who would benefit from an ultra low emf, and thirdly, is the price increase really worth it?
Below you will find the answer to these three questions, so that you may be able to find the best possible sauna for your health and wellness needs.
What Is a Low EMF Sauna?
The electromagnetic field that surrounds any home appliance that relies on an electrical outlet is measured in milligauss. Different institutions of health such as the World Health Organization have levels of emfs that are considered safe for humans to be around or within close proximity to. Special consideration needs to be taken when it comes to saunas as individuals sit directly within the enclosed units, sometimes for several hours in a week.
Our Low EMF saunas are designed to provide you with a safe and relaxing sauna experience. The saunas are built with low-EMF heating panels that emit less than 8 milligauss of emf radiation, which is well below the safe exposure limit set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
- Low emf saunas read 6‐8 Inches from heating panels at 8 MG or less
- 1 MG of background radiation from the home environment can be assumed as included in any emf reading within the sauna.
Anyone looking to improve overall health with a sauna can rest assured that a low emf sauna will be a safe experience, as well as one that may dramatically improve wellbeing. For those who are particularly concerned with emf emissions, or any individual living with acute diseases may want to consider an ultra-low emf sauna.
If you are looking for a safe and effective way to improve your health, a low emf sauna is a great option.
What Is An Ultra Low EMF Sauna?
Our Ultra Low EMF saunas are the most technologically-advanced saunas on the market. The saunas are built with ultra-low-emf heating panels that emit less than 1 milligauss of emf radiation, which is well below the safe exposure limit set by the ICNIRP.
Ultra Low emf saunas offer all of the same health benefits as low emf saunas, but they also offer the added peace of mind that you are being exposed to the absolute minimum amount of emf radiation possible in an electric sauna.
If you are looking for the safest and most effective sauna on the market, an ultra low emf sauna is the perfect choice for you.
- The ultra low emf saunas read at 5 Inches from the heaters at 1 MG or less / 1 Inch from the heaters at 2.5 MG or less
Ultimately, the difference in technical terms between a low emf sauna and an ultra low emf sauna is about 6-7 MG. Compared to the majority of household appliances both types of saunas are well below, for example a smart refrigerator, a vacuum cleaner, a washer/dryer, and nearly any other commonly used electrical device. So, knowing this, both types of saunas will be safe for most individuals. If, however you are especially concerned with emfs and are looking for the safest experience guaranteed you may want to consider an ultra low emf sauna.
Who Is an Ultra Low EMF Sauna Designed For?
- People Who Are Highly Sensitive To EMFs
- Individuals Who Have a History of Being Overloaded With Radiation
- Anyone Suffering From an Acute Disease or Illness.
Purchasing an ultra low emf sauna is not necessary for everyone, however there are some individuals who may benefit from an ultra low emf sauna. For anyone who is hypersensitive to being around emfs, and would like to also benefit from the use of a sauna would do well to use an ultra low emf sauna.
Another category of people who would benefit from an ultra low emf sauna are those who have been exposed to high levels of radiation in the past, for example any who has received radiation treatment for an illness, someone who has worked and or lived in an area with high levels of radiation. For these folks, minimizing any and all exposure to emfs is imperative.
While all of our saunas have a low emf readings, particularly in comparison to other household appliances as seen by the WHO chart of emf safety levels, some people will likely be better off with an ultra low emf sauna, even if it is only for the sake of peace of mind.
Is It Worth Spending The Extra Cash For An Ultra Low EMF Sauna?
The ideal sauna for each individual ultimately depends on specific circumstances and needs. For most people all of the desired benefits from sauna therapy can be achieved through a low emf sauna and the addition of an ultra low emf sauna may be unnecessary.
If, however, you are very concerned about emf exposure for yourself or for someone you love, it may well be worth spending the extra cash and purchasing an ultra low emf sauna.
The best sauna for you depends on your individual needs and preferences: If you are concerned about your exposure to emf radiation, an ultra low emf sauna is the best choice.
