The Truth About EMF's In Your Infrared Sauna

The Truth About EMF's In Your
Infrared Sauna

By: Your JNH Lifestylist

You may have heard of EMF’s, or electromagnetic fields, on mainstream media. You're told they are bad for you and the majority of EMF’s you are exposed to come from electronic devices, such as your cell phone. Infrared saunas emit EMF’s as well, but is this something you should be worried about? What are the EMF levels in infrared saunas compared to everyday technology?

In this article, we’ll get to the bottom of EMF’s and if they’re something that should concern you.

What Are EMF's?

On a technical level, EMF’s are defined as moving electrical charges or frequencies. Everything in the universe, including your body, emits some form of frequency, which are harmless. However, in extremely high doses (ex. power lines), EMF’s can potentially pose some harm; supposedly disrupting our natural frequencies and processes within the body.

EMF’s fall into two major categories: non-ionizing and ionizing [1]. Non-ionizing is low-level radiation, which poses no harm to the human body. Things that fall under this category are your common everyday electronics, including infrared saunas. However, ionizing EMF’s can damage your DNA and pose potential health risks. For example, x-rays are a form of ionizing EMF’s. This is why during an x-ray procedure; the patient and medical staff must wear protective gear. Included in the category of ionizing EMF’s are the ultraviolet rays found in the sun’s light. That’s why you’re suggested to apply sunscreen, which protects your skin from becoming burned.

Ultra-Low EMF Saunas: The Truth

Every single infrared sauna emits EMF’s - this is a fact. Some individuals can feel when they are surrounded by too many EMF’s, while others may not notice it at all. There are also a selection of people who are medically inclined to surround themselves with low EMF emitting devices. For that reason, JNH Lifestyles offers ultra-low EMF infrared saunas, namely the Ensi, Tosi and ProSeries collections. These infrared saunas produce much less EMF’s than a common hair dryer or blender so even someone with a pacemaker can now enjoy our saunas safely and happily.

Some individuals can feel when they are surrounded by too many EMFs, while others may not notice at all.

Bottom Line: There Is No Danger Associated
With Infrared Sauna Usage

When it comes down to it, regulating your EMF exposure is a personal choice. Even our standard infrared saunas pose no harm or threat. Every room in your house generates EMF on some level: the power outlets, lighting fixtures, fans, even your car generates EMF’s through the high rotating speed of the wheels! It’s worth noting though that no research has solidified claims that your technological devices are emitting EMF waves detrimental to your health.

Further, infrared sauna therapy has many health benefits, which include improved cardiovascular function, increased blood circulation, improved healing, decreased pain, reduced stress, increased energy levels, decreased joint stiffness, and much more [2]. Many individuals also use infrared sauna therapy as a means to relax and unwind after a particularly tough or trying day. All in all, infrared sauna therapy is entirely safe. There's no danger from EMF exposure due to the very low amounts and type of EMF’s present. Keep getting those health benefits from your infrared sauna sessions. You’ve got nothing to worry about when it comes to EMF’s!
