This sauna was designed to accommodate 2 persons. It features a compact design with generous interior space for a comfortable soothing experience. It is lightweight and is made of high-quality Canadian Hemlock wood. The clasp-together assembly makes it a great option for all those who don’t want a complicated assembly process. Since it features mildew resistant properties and there are no toxic materials used, the sauna is also suitable for allergy sufferers. Unlike many saunas for 2 persons that have 6 heaters, this one has 7 heaters.
The control panel is located inside the sauna, so you won’t be able to set it from the outside. You can adjust the temperature and set the desired time according to your preferences only by using the interior control panel. The included LED lights allow you to read your favorite magazine and the MP3 player helps you relax while playing your favorite music. Additionally, it comes with a comfortable bench.

According to the specialists, an infrared one offers much more benefits in comparison to a traditional one. Since it uses infrared heat, the temperatures inside this type of sauna are lower, so the heat is capable of penetrating deeply into the body. And so the effects. Also, the low temperatures make you sweat more which helps detoxify your body and burn calories much faster. Additionally, since the temperatures in an infrared sauna are lower, your heart can tolerate better the heat. Not to mention the fact that you will feel much more comfortable.
In general, it is recommended to stay in sauna for approximately 10 or 15 minutes. This is the minimum of time for maximum health benefits. But, considering the fact that an infrared sauna reaches temperatures of up to 110º F (instead of 150 or 160º in traditional saunas) your body can resist for a longer period of time. And there is nothing wrong with spending more time in the sauna, you just have to try not to exceed 30 minutes.
According to the Center for Disease Control, there is no real evidence that exposing to EMF can increase the chances of developing certain diseases. However, it is always good to take preventive measures, so it’s best to look for those saunas that emit zero or low EMFs. The Environmental Protection Agency considers that an EMF level below 3 mG is safe for all people who use infrared saunas.
Although an infrared model offers many health benefits it is not always recommended because it can do more harm than good. Usually, people who suffer from medical conditions like multiple sclerosis or unstable angina pectoris should never use it. At the same time, if you are under medication you should ask the advice of the doctor to make sure it’s safe to use the sauna because some drugs are not recommended in combination with increased blood circulation. Also, pregnant women should avoid using it as babies-to-be can't tolerate the extreme temperatures.
When reviewing a certain sauna, we take into account a few key factors such as: its main features, the type of heater that it uses, its design and its durability. We give extra credit to the home saunas that are easy to use, the ones that heat up fast and the ones meant to last a long time.
