Preparing to Use an Infrared Sauna at Home

A home infrared sauna is easy to install and convenient to use. Plus, there are many benefits you will enjoy as an owner of one. Before you get started on purchasing and using one, here are some helpful tips for you to keep in mind:

Knowing the Specs

When buying a far infrared sauna, check the specifications from the manufacturer to obtain the electromagnetic field (EMF) rating. Generally, safe levels of EMF should be below 3 milligauss (mG). Also, it helps to look at the manufacturer’s certifications to see if they are following safety standards set forth by the appropriate regulatory agencies.

Benefits of Sauna Usage

Many individuals find that the heat emitted by an infrared sauna is much easier to tolerate than that of the traditional saunas. As body temperature increases, sweating is induced, aiding the body in detoxification.

In addition, sauna sessions help increase blood flow to the extremities, reducing pain and the risk of various heart-related diseases. For many sauna users, regular sessions have helped them become more relaxed and less stressed.

Safety Precautions

Ensure that you are properly hydrated before and after your sauna session, and avoid staying inside the sauna for extended periods of time. Generally, aim for 20 to 30 minutes per session, 2 to 3 times a week.

For people with sensitive health issues, seek the advice of a doctor before beginning any sauna therapy program.
