What are electromagnetic fields (EMFs)?

Electromagnetic fields are moving electrical charges in your environment. They’re created by electricity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cell signals, and other natural sources like the sun. Learn more about EMFs and how they affect you.

How do infrared saunas work?

Our particular spectrum of infrared therapy focuses on near infrared (NIR) light, which penetrates deeply to heat you from the inside out. That means you sweat faster and the air stays cooler than in traditional saunas. Most other infrared saunas foc

What’s the difference between near infrared and far infrared?

Near infrared (NIR) light is in the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that provides heat and light therapy at the same time. The light penetrates deeply to help you heat up and sweat faster. It also works with your body’s natural light receptors t

What is full-spectrum infrared therapy?

When we say “full-spectrum” infrared therapy, we mean that you receive red light plus near, mid, and far infrared light in a proportion that reflects natural sunlight. We believe this approach mimics the benefits of nature and optimizes your sauna ex

How do you block EMFs?

SaunaSpace uses a combination of methods to eliminate the EMFs it would otherwise create and shield you from the EMFs created by other sources. Every electrical device produces EMFs. To reduce them requires conductive metals that can draw the current

What is flicker stress?

Flicker stress is the experience of tiredness, exhaustion, headaches, or even seizures caused by flickering artificial light. If you try to take a picture of your computer screen using your phone, the flickering becomes very evident. Many forms of ar

What is photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation, or low-level laser therapy, is the technical term for light therapy. It uses light in the 400–1100nm range of wavelengths to stimulate cell function. This is one of the primary benefits of using primarily near infrared therapy. Le

What is mitochondrial stimulation?

Light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation or low-level laser therapy, works with the photoreceptors in your body. Mitochondria in your cells are activated, which helps increase blood flow and oxygenation from a cellular level throughout the bod
