EMF stands for electromagnetic force. The term is generally used when referring to the branch of physics that studies the relationship between electrically charged particles. EMF is present in just about any situation where electricity is used and is, therefore, part of everyone’s everyday life. 

But the greater the electric current present, the stronger the EMF.  Something that requires a lot of power over a long, sustained time period – like a sauna – will create a stronger EMF. Because a halotherapy and infrared sauna treatments in Denver, NC uses so much power to heat the small space, it creates a more significant EMF.Furthermore, because a sauna is a small, contained space, the patrons of the sauna are generally sitting for an extended time at the apex of the EMF.

What are the impacts of EMF?

Knowing that saunas create proximity to EMFs may not seem like a big deal unless you consider some of the health implications of prolonged exposure to the wrong kind of electromagnetic fields. Some studies have shown a correlation between exposure to EMF and incidences of leukemia and some other cancers, fatigue, stress, and even infertility.

Investing in a club or spa that uses these types of machines, or, if you are able, purchasing one for your own at-home use, will certainly maximize the benefits you receive from your sauna time.
