Types of Infrared Saunas

Below is an in-depth discussion of infrared saunas from the Golden Designs Reserves Series to help you pick the right one for you.

Your Personal Spa Retreat: Infrared Saunas for Single Individuals and Couples

At the end of a hectic workday, the thought of soothing your sore muscles is surely inviting.

But imagine the added stress of scheduling inconveniences, the rush hour across town, and enduring the sometimes plain environment at your local spa. These issues can eat into your moment of tranquility.

Now imagine unwinding in the comfort and privacy of your own home, with a Golden Reserve Design Infrared Sauna from Sun Valley Saunas. No more appointments, no more travel, just relaxation on your own terms, when you need it.

We’ll discuss two options that can make this a reality for individuals and couples.

1 - Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02

The Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna is made using Natural Reforested Canadian Hemlock wood construction.

With this sauna, you get a nice balance of quality and cost-effectiveness as Hemlock is more affordable compared to high-end wood like cedar. Your infrared sauna will last you a long time since Hemlock wood is resistant to cracking and warping.

Additional Benefits: Hemlock wood is non-allergenic, non-toxic, and has little to no wood aroma, making it beneficial to your body and creating an enjoyable atmosphere for sauna users.

It’s designed to fit a single person, and can comfortably fit in limited spaces as it doesn’t take up a lot of room.

Important Features of Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02

  • 5 carbon PureTech near-zero EMF heater emitters - If you have limited time, you’ll want a heater that can heat up quickly, allowing you to maximize relaxation and rejuvenation, without sacrificing other commitments.

    Carbon heaters do just that, as heating time can take about 10-20 minutes, compared to about 35 minutes in traditional saunas.

    They are also energy-efficient so you can enjoy your session without stressing about receiving huge energy bills afterwards.

    The inclusion of 5-carbon PureTech emitters means that you’ll enjoy warmth that’s uniformly spread out within the space.

    Plus, with near zero EMF emissions, you face a minimized risk of experiencing headaches, trouble sleeping, and skin conditions typically associated with prolonged EMF exposure.

  • 1 Himalayan salt bar - Himalayan salt comprises sodium chloride (similar to table salt) and small amounts of magnesium, potassium, and calcium minerals.

    Inhaling sodium chloride through steaming is associated with relieving respiratory conditions including asthma, chronic bronchitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

    When the Himalayan bar heats up, it releases negative ions that purify the air around you, making the space breathable and comfortable.

Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02

2 - Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02

If you wish to enjoy a relaxing experience with another person, the Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02 is perfect to do that. It seats two people.

It is larger than the Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02 (for the single user), but smaller than the standard room size. This means it can comfortably fit in a bathroom, basement, or dedicated wellness area.

Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02

Important Features of the Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02

  • Carbon PureTech near zero EMF heat emitters - Do you know how a three-legged stool stands strong and stable, with each leg supporting equal weight?

    This sauna replicates this simple elegance, offering 3 carbon PureTech near zero EMF heat emitters and 3 full spectrum near-infrared red heat emitters.

    The 3 carbon puretech near zero emitters ensure a uniform heating experience by covering different body parts.

    You can think of the 3 full spectrum near infrared emitters like a gardener’s set of watering cans with different spouts.

    Just like a gardener uses these cans to water plants at different depths, these emitters penetrate different layers of your body. The far infrared emitters provide a “gentle sprinkle” on the surface, while the near infrared emitters provide a “deep soak.”

    This ensures every part of you receives the nourishing warmth it needs. These near infrared emitters improve blood circulation and the detoxification process.

  • Roof vent - The Golden Designs Reserves Series sets itself apart by including features that aren’t typically included in infrared saunas.

    The Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02, like all others in this series comes with a roof vent.

    You can open the roof vent before your sauna session, to allow circulation of fresh air inside. Keeping the vent open during your session prevents the air from getting murky, which allows you to enjoy your session more comfortably.

    This is particularly useful if users experience overheating, as they can always adjust the vent a little more to optimize their environment.

How the GDI-8020-02 Compares With GDI-8010-02

  • Number of people each can hold - The Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02 can only hold one person while the Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02 seats 2 people.
  • Size: The Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, is smaller in size. Its compact design means that it can fit in smaller spaces such as a condo.

    On the other hand, the Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02 is slightly bigger, but it can still comfortably fit in most rooms of standard size.

  • Heat emitters configuration: The Golden Designs Reserve 1 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8010-02 has more carbon PureTech and full spectrum emitters.

    More carbon puretech emitters mean you get warmed up quicker and more full spectrum emitters offer more focused EMF reduction.

Many saunas are designed for individual use or bigger groups of people. Individuals that want to share the experience in pairs are forced to take turns in the single-user sauna or contend with an unnecessarily large sauna.

The Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02 is unique because it’s the only product in the series that is uniquely tailored to house exactly two people.

With this sauna you enjoy:

  • Intimate experiences: Did someone say shared relaxation without intrusion?

    This sauna is designed to foster closeness and connection, making it the perfect setting for a romantic evening or quality time with a friend.

  • Efficient use of space: This sauna is neither too large nor too small. It’ll fit in most homes without taking up unnecessary space compared to larger models designed for groups.
  • Cost-effectiveness: If you had to choose between carpooling with a friend and driving a large bus to town, you’d probably choose to carpool. Right? With this sauna, you get where you want to go, without paying for unnecessary extras.

While you will get a cozy, intimate experience with Golden Designs Reserve 1-2 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8020-02, if you want to learn more, you can read more reviews and check the latest price.

Nurture Your Family's Wellness: Infrared Saunas for Small Family Units

3 - Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02

If you’ve heard it said that three is a crowd, this infrared sauna laughs in the face of this phrase. Here’s why: It can comfortably seat three people in it, providing ample space for everyone and encouraging quality bonding time.

Like others in the Golden Designs Reserves Series, it’s made using quality Natural Reforested Hemlock Wood construction so you can be sure it’s an investment that will last you a long time.

Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02

Important Features of Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02

  • 2 Himalayan salt bars - A prominent feature in this sauna is the inclusion of 2 Himalayan salt bars. Just because it can house more people, doesn’t mean that the quality of the experience is compromised.

    Actually, with double salt bars, there is an increased surface area of salt being exposed to the sauna’s heat.

    This translates to the creation of a richer atmosphere where more negative ions are released into the sauna environment to purify the air.

    Since inhaling this salt alleviates respiratory symptoms, your family can experience improved breathing and relaxation by having a session together.

  • 3 Carbon PureTech Near Zero EMF Heat emitters and 5 Full Spectrum Near Infrared Heat emitters - The 3 Carbon PureTech near zero emf heat emitters emit long-wave infrared red heat. This has been associated with improved relaxation and quality of life.

    One study investigating the effects of infrared heat involved individuals with mild depression. These participants complained of fatigue, appetite loss, and mental disturbances.

    During the study, they were exposed to four weeks of infrared sauna therapy.

    After 10 sessions, the participants started feeling more energetic and took part in daily activities with a newfound zest.

    What’s more, these individuals had an improved appetite as well.

    Infrared therapy also improves cardiovascular health. Imagine getting a workout for your heart without even lifting a finger.

    Studies show that infrared therapy increases heart beats up to 100 beats per minute similar to the increases observed during moderate to vigorous-intensity physical exercise.

    Additionally, exposure to infrared therapy increases sweating which promotes the secretion of toxins, including heavy metals like aluminum.

Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02

4 - Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02

The Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 is a rectangular sauna that also seats three people.

Quality is still assured as this sauna is made using Natural Reforested Canadian Hemlock wood. Once you invest in this product, you can enjoy sauna sessions for a long time, without frequent sauna maintenance.

Advantages and Benefits of the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02

A striking benefit of the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 is the inclusion of a bronze tempered door.

Why This Is Important: A bronze-tinted door provides privacy, so you and your family can enjoy a sauna experience even if the sauna is fitted in a public area within your home.

Tempered glass is glass that has undergone chemical treatments to make it stronger and more resilient than ordinary glass.

In the event of an accident that breaks this door, it breaks into small, dull pieces, rather than sharp glass. This feature ensures your family stays safe at all times.

Important Features of Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02

  • A maximum temperature of 135–140 - This sauna comes with a wider range of temperature settings, so you can adjust to higher heat settings to increase the detoxification benefits.

    We mentioned that infrared heat therapy improves sweating, which allows the excretion of toxins from the body.

    Increasing the temperature in the sauna will increase sweating, enabling a more effective detoxification process. If you’re looking to have a deep detox, this sauna will help you achieve it.

    In addition to this, the heat works to alleviate tension in muscles and joints, easing discomfort.

    One study exposed athletes to a 6-week training program where they undertook various training sessions. One group was treated with a 10-minute infrared therapy as a recovery strategy. The other group was free to leave.

    The researchers found that the group that underwent infrared therapy had a faster recovery and improved physical performance.

    Another study found the use of an infrared sauna alleviates inflammation and chronic pain.

    If your family is coming home after a stressful day of work, school, and physical activities, you can all enjoy a restorative session as you catch up on the day.

    The effectiveness of this process is influenced by how high the temperature is, the duration of exposure, and how often you are exposed to those high temperatures. With this sauna, you can go as high as you’d like, while still being safe.

  • Oversized interior chromotherapy/reading light system - At first glance, the oversized interior chromotherapy and reading light system may seem like a mere accessory. However, it’s a valuable addition to your small family in numerous ways:

    One is that you have access to various colors. Younger children may find this color feature appealing and this may get them excited to participate in sauna sessions.

    You can also choose to adjust the lighting depending on your mood. For instance, using a blue color can enhance your relaxation experience.

    The inclusion of a reading light can facilitate a better connection between family members.

    Picture a scenario where a grandparent is sharing a story with a grandchild under the gentle reading light. That’s valuable quality time they will treasure always.

How Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 Compares With Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02

  • The number of Himalayan salt bars: The Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 contains two Himalayan salt bars while the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02 only has one.

    Having two Himalayan salt bars improves their effectiveness in purifying the air and respiratory health advantages for all family members.

  • The product shape: The Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 is rectangular. Because of its length, it generates a more enclosed feeling making group sauna sessions feel more cozy.

    This length also allows flexible positioning, whether you want to sit or lay down during your session.

    On the other hand, the square design of the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02 allows a more open floor space compared to one with an elongated design.

    As such, you can incorporate yoga or conduct some light stretching exercises during your sauna session. This makes your session more wholesome.

    A more open floor space also provides better access for mobility which is crucial for individuals that use assistive devices.

While you may find many desirable features in the Golden Designs Reserves Series, one distinguishing feature of the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 is the specified maximum temperature of 135–140 degrees.

Like most sauna users, you possibly have individual preferences or sensitivities to the temperatures within the sauna. If the sauna temperatures are too hot or less you end up having a dissatisfying experience.

Specifying the maximum temperature empowers you to tailor your experience depending on your goals and comfort level.

Whether you’re aiming to reduce muscle stiffness or increase sweating, you can adjust the temperature to the intensity that works for you.

With the Golden Designs Reserve 3-Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, you will get precise temperature control. If you want to learn more, you can read more reviews and check the latest price.

While both products are solid choices for small families looking to improve their wellness, here are some details that may tip the scales for you:

If you’re looking for a cozier option, the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna GDI-8035-02 may be the best fit. The additional Himalayan salt bar creates an enriched atmosphere, infusing the air with beneficial minerals.

If you’re seeking an intense heating experience, then the Golden Designs Reserve 3 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8030-02 will serve you well.

Sharing Warmth: Infrared Saunas for Every Family Size

With this sauna, you’ll share a lived experience of the phrase, “The merrier, the better.” It is large enough to fit four people and it’s made using Natural Reforested Hemlock wood.

Golden Designs Reserve 4 Person Near Zero EMF Far Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8040-02

Advantage of the Golden Designs Reserve 4 Person Near Zero EMF Far Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8040-02

The key advantage of this sauna is its ability to seat four people at once. Finding time for family bonding can be a challenge in today’s fast-paced world.

With this four-seater infrared sauna, you and your family can share some downtime while building your wellness.

What’s more, you can choose to include educational podcasts or listen to a guided meditation while you guys sweat it out.

Educative podcasts and stories can expose your children to new ideas combining relaxation and a learning opportunity in your sauna experiences. A guided meditation eases you into a more relaxed state, letting go of the stresses of the day.

Important Features of the Golden Designs Reserve 4 Person Near Zero EMF Far Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8040-02

  • 3 Carbon PureTech Near Zero EMF Heat Emitters and 5 Full Spectrum Near Infrared Red Heat Emitters - The 3 carbon heaters provide a quick heating-up experience and maintain a consistent warmth without using up too much energy. You can invest in this quality product, enjoy it, and pay affordable energy bills.

    The full spectrum near-infrared emitters enable deep heat penetration, enhancing the soothing of the muscles. This is beneficial for elderly people using the sauna for pain relief.

    It also caters to the needs of younger individuals who may be more interested in the detoxification benefits and cardiovascular health.

    Together, these features provide a consistent and comfortable temperature for each of the four individuals.

  • Interior and exterior LED control panel - The inclusion of a user-friendly interior and exterior LED panel allows accessibility so family members can adjust the heat setting before and after entering the sauna.

    It also ensures users remain comfortable throughout their sauna experience, as they can adjust the temperatures without stepping out of the sauna. The personalized experience prevents cases of overheating from happening.

6 - Golden Designs Reserve 6 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8260-01

This sauna embodies a fun experience like one you’d experience when discovering new places as a group.

It seats six people so it can accommodate larger families or provide extra space for a more luxurious experience.

Golden Designs Reserve 6 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8260-01

Common Features of the Golden Designs Reserve 6 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8260-01

This sauna includes an oversized chromotherapy lighting system that can facilitate energy-healing properties using various colors.

It also includes a Bluetooth stereo and speakers so you can enhance your relaxation by listening to some calm music or a guided meditation.

1 - 6 Carbon PureTech Near Zero EMF Heat Emitters

This sauna has the largest number of carbon heat emitters in the entire Golden Designs Reserves series.

Given the usefulness of carbon heat emitters in warming up the sauna, having six of them is necessary to provide consistent heat for a family/group of six.

Because of this sauna’s size, you may imagine that it uses up a lot of electricity and be concerned about piling electricity bills.

While the cost depends on how frequently you use your sauna, the monthly cost is equal to the cost of operating your washing machine. This is because sauna sessions are typically about 40 minutes long.

2 - Oversize Interior Reading Light

The addition of an oversize interior reading light provides numerous advantages including enhanced visibility, facilitation of shared activities, and improved accessibility.

Let’s explore these benefits a bit more:

  • Enhanced visibility and shared activities: The oversize reading light provides ample illumination in the sauna so sauna users can enjoy reading under clear light.

    Individuals can pair up to read a book or magazine during the sauna session. Alternatively, you can start a book club and have discussions during the sauna session.

    An exchange of ideas in a wellness environment will enhance relaxation and give you quality bonding time.

  • Improved accessibility: The inclusion of good interior light improves accessibility for individuals with visual impairments who struggle to read in standard lighting.

    All family members can comfortably participate in reading activities. Because no one’s left out, you enjoy an enriched experience altogether.

3 - 5 Himalayan Salt Bars

The Golden Designs Reserve 6 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8260-01 contains 5 Himalayan salt bars. This is the highest number of salt baths included with any of the saunas in the Golden Designs Reserves series.

Did You Know: This high number of Himalayan salt bars translates to improved effectiveness in its air purification process.

Cleaner air leads to a more revitalizing environment for all family members. This is because air purity can contribute to deeper breathing and promote stress relief.

Many families include individuals with different needs. For individuals with respiratory conditions like chronic bronchitis or asthma, the high number of Himalayan salt bars provides quick relief.

For others who might be sensitive to allergens, the increased number of salt bars removes allergens from the sauna environment, creating a soothing environment throughout.

How the Golden Designs Reserve 4 Person Near Zero EMF Far Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8040-02 Compares With the Golden Designs Reserve 6 Person Near Zero EMF Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna, GDI-8260-01

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Infrared Saunas safe for children?

Generally, infrared saunas are considered safe for children but it is essential to take precautions. For one, children must attend their sauna session accompanied by an adult.

Additionally, it’s important to note that children’s bodies heat up more quickly.

Therefore, a session of 10-15 minutes at a lower temperature might be appropriate for a child.

How long should a family session in an infrared sauna last?

Generally, 15-30 minutes is standard for adults while children may require shorter sessions of 10-15 minutes.

Family sessions can vary based on an individual’s needs, preferences, and the ages of those using the sauna.

You may opt to start with shorter durations and gradually increase the time as the body acclimates.

Most importantly, remind every family member to always listen to their body.

Expert Tip: Always consult a healthcare provider for specific guidelines tailored to your needs.

Can couples share a sauna session if one partner has specific medical conditions or is pregnant?

If pregnant women and individuals with medical conditions get medical approval, they can certainly share a session.

However, adjustments in temperature or time might be necessary to accommodate the partner.

With a pregnant partner, consider using a lower temperature, as high temperature has been linked to fetal malformation, especially in early pregnancy stages.

Family members with cardiovascular issues can benefit from using lower temperatures in the sauna too.

Higher temperatures can increase the risk of developing high blood pressure or increasing the heart rate which may be harmful for such an individual.

How energy-efficient are Infrared Saunas, and how might that affect my family's budget?

Infrared saunas are generally more energy efficient than traditional steam saunas. They heat up faster and operate at lower temperatures, often using between 1000 to 3000 watts per hour.

For a family using a sauna for 30 hours a month at a rate of 2kW, it may add about 60kWh to your monthly electricity bill.

The Golden Designs Reserves Series in Perspective

Navigating the world of infrared saunas can feel like a journey through a forest of options. However, the Golden Designs Reserves series stands out as a beacon of quality, innovation, and wellness.

Constructed using Natural Reforested Canadian Hemlock wood, this series offers robust quality, ensuring your investment stays functional for a long time.
