In my professional opinion low electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are especially important! We used a triaxial EMF tester to confirm the levels inside the sauna, and indeed they were very low – about 1.5 milligaus when touching the heating elements, and about 6 inches away it was near zero. That’s acceptable.
Additionally, 23&Me genetic testing highlights the importance of a low EMF sauna, because some of the genes which make us sensitive to EMFs are known and demonstrate genetic variants. This means that some of our patients are more susceptible to EMFs and can even perceive/feel EMF’s. So only by avoiding EMFs can these patients fully receive the detoxifying benefits of a sauna.
It appears there are not perceptible toxins used in the construction, which was important to me. Be sure to have 2 very strong persons to assemble. Printed instructions are in need of clarification for assembly, but it’s manageable. Watching the online assembly videos is helpful.
Overall I’m very pleased. My opinion of the 2 person sauna based on quality and value is quite good, especially at the entry-level price point making this sauna affordable for my patients who I recommend it to.
Thanks again for your product – I personally enjoy using its for healthful benefits.
