Indoor vs. Outdoors

An infrared sauna is a life-changing product that comes with a wide array of positive healing benefits. Infrared heaters come in three different infrared wavelengths, each with its own associated health benefits.
If detoxification, general relaxation, and improved circulation are priorities, you can opt for far-infrared saunas. But if you want to experience more benefits like skin revitalization, collagen synthesis, pain relief, and weight loss, you need to consider a full-spectrum infrared sauna.
The latter gives you the option to expose your body to infrared light in mid-infrared, near-infrared, and far-infrared wavelengths. This way you can enjoy the whole gamut of therapeutic benefits from reduced joint stiffness, to the prevention of acne lesions, and even life extension.
For starters, look for saunas that pass the EPA standards for electromagnetic force (EMF) and extremely low frequency (ELF) fields. Although no major health effects have been associated with ELF and ELM exposure, high levels over many years may lead to unforeseen consequences.
The EPA mandates that consumer-grade products should limit EMF levels to less than 3 milligauss and ELF levels to under 1000 millivolts. All Clearlight saunas available at The Sauna Life come with high-level EMF/ELF protection, keeping exposure levels well under the safe limits.
Health and Safety Tips for Using Full-Spectrum Saunas
Saunas and light therapy are generally considered safe for adults. A sauna experience is associated with benefits like improved blood flow, better soft-tissue growth, and the overall reduction in body stress and harmful toxins. With that said, when used rashly and beyond the recommended safe levels, saunas can become a health concern for at least some individuals.
We recommend our users to be mindful of some of the key health and safety aspects while using a sauna as follows:
If you already suffer from high blood pressure, beware of sudden temperature fluctuations while using a sauna. Avoid switching quickly from the heat of a sauna to a cold shower or a dip in the pool. This can lead to unhealthy changes in your blood pressure.
Continuing the theme of heat impact on body stress and blood vessels, individuals with a history of heart disease or even a recent heart attack should take extra care while using a sauna. For maximum safety, consult your healthcare practitioners before using a sauna.
A few minutes inside a sauna can trigger substantial perspiration in the human body. Without proper precautions, this can quickly lead to dangerous dehydration. Avoid using the sauna if you are drunk/consuming alcohol as it can exacerbate dehydration. Always drink plenty of other fluids like water when using a full spectrum infrared sauna.
A full-spectrum infrared sauna does not generate dangerously high levels of heat or humidity. Still, it is recommended that users do not stay in a sauna for longer than 20 minutes per session. Children should not be allowed to stay inside a sauna for more than 15 minutes.
