Electromagnetic Field (EMF)

type of energy field

Definition of Electromagnetic Field

An invisible area of energy (radiation) produced by electricity.

Any equipment powered by electricity, including saunas, produces an electric field even when not in use. Once a device is turned on, it produces a magnetic field whose strength depends on the strength of the electric current passing through it.

Sauna use therefore exposes individuals to EMF and is usually measured in milligauss (mG).

There are typically two categories of EMF; non-ionizing and ionizing radiation. If equipment has a high EMF rating, then it’s likely to cause cellular or DNA damage.

According to research, exposure to EMF can increase the risk of developing Leukemia, brain tumors, fatigue, headache, and a decreased learning ability, among others.

On the other hand, non-ionizing radiation (Low EMF) is considered harmless to human beings. That’s why buying a sauna with a Low EMF, Ultra-Low EMF, or Near Zero EMF rating is very important.
