Are Infrared Saunas Safe?

Infrared saunas are not all created equal and with more places to get your sauna fix popping up all the time, we thought we should address the issue of infrared sauna quality and making sure your sauna use isn’t causing more harm than good!

Here at Wildfire, we only use Clearlight infrared saunas. Before we opened, we spent many hours researching and trialling

various brands and Clearlight was the clear frontrunner in all departments. Here are a few important reasons why we would only ever step foot in a Clearlight Infrared Sauna.

- When choosing our saunas our clients health and safety was obviously at the

forefront of our decision, we wanted to ensure that the infrared saunas we provided were completely safe, and not emitting harmful EMF's. Please, please, PLEASE ensure you are only ever spending time in a quality infrared sauna – cheap ‘no brand’ machines are dangerous and any benefits are far outweighed by the negative effects. Clearlight was concerned about EMFs long before their competitors, and continue to be the frontrunner in low EMF technology - when you’re sitting in a Clearlight infrared sauna the EMF levels are virtually zero, meaning you are able to soak up all the incredible benefits of infrared sauna therapy in a completely safe and effective machine. Recently, I've had a few clients mention that they've seen infrared saunas online for just a few thousand dollars and, like anything, you get what you pay for - I'd be popping these ones out in the next clean up!

- The heat quality of a Clearlight sauna is incredibly consistent due to the True Waveheaters. Not only do the carbon-ceramic far infrared heaters completely surround you throughout your session, the full spectrum infrared heaters (installed in the front of the sauna) are 25 times more powerful than those of the nearest competitor, ensuring each session in a Clearlight sauna produces a deep and effective sweat. I recently did a trial session in a sub-par sauna and I definitely felt the difference. Not only did it take longer to begin sweating, I cooled off almost immediately post-session - there was no lasting warmth and therefore, no extended calorie-burn.

- When spending your precious time and money on a session in the infrared sauna, you want to make sure that you're getting the most bang for your buck. That's why it's important to ensure that the infrared sauna you're using has full-spectrum heaters. Saunas built with far infrared heaters only are simply not capable of producing the same results. Our Clearlight Sanctuary saunas are each equipped with two full-spectrum heaters for the ultimate sauna experience.

- Whilst some infrared sauna brands allow you to select from various programs suggesting that each program offers a different benefit (eg. weight loss, cardio, detox, etc.) and switching from far infrared to full spectrum and back again, a Clearlight infrared sauna allows you to receive all of the benefits, all of the time. As mentioned above, the strength and quality of the heaters in a Clearlight sauna ensures that you are receiving these health benefits to the max!

Infrared saunas are an incredibly powerful addition to your health and wellness routine and you should always ask questions and do your own research! Make sure the machine you are using is top quality and if it's not, pop into Wildfire where you can rest assured that your health and safety comes first.
