So, I am at the planning stage of building a sauna for myself and the family use. I have asked a handful of persons what they used and some always mentioned I just set up a heat room, a couple have advised I get a far infrared setup. I am still skeptical about these though until I tried a near-infrared sauna while in London.
Should I get a near infrared sauna set up?, What are the benefits and disadvantages. I am torn between far and near infrared. Also, I am considering the rubylux near-infrared bulbs for building the sauna if I ever conclude on which setup to build.
Thanks. . .October 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm #439grace peachParticipant
I know it can get pretty confusing, but it shouldn’t necessarily be. While any Sauna can heat the body, you need one that is effective and health beneficial.
Although a normal sauna can get hot, it doesn’t have as many health benefits since the heat doesn’t penetrate the skin. A far-infrared sauna will cost you more on the electricity bill and is not very healthy since your body is exposed to much more electromagnetic fields.
Using a near-infrared light will give so much benefit since near-infrared light heats the body effectively rather than the entire enclosure. On a more succinct note, you will get the health benefits of light therapy such as stress relief, anti-oxidation, cellular healing, and deep skin penetration.
Using a high quality near-infrared bulb to build your sauna is by far, a better option.

I like saunas. I have tried tons of sessions, but it always felt very uncomfortable for me and couldn’t be in one for a long time. I hear near-infrared sauna are more beneficial compared to the traditional saunas.
If you are seeking more health benefits, then a near-infrared installation using NIR-A bulbs is worth every penny.October 31, 2019 at 9:50 pm #446skin loverParticipant
Skin Lover here, I’d like to thank you for the response. I feel more enlighthened and it seems to me that red light therapy may just be the answer for my family.
@tammy, I have also had that problem with traditional saunas. I sweat on the surface and it does get uncomfortable pretty quick.
My husband is already setting up the enclosure for the sauna and I am considering getting the rubylux near infrared bulbs @grace mentioned.
Lastly, is the EMF from far infrared sauna not same as that of near infrared light therapy bulbs bulbs?November 15, 2019 at 3:49 pm #456grace peachParticipant
Hey Skin Lover,
How is your custom sauna building going? Has it been completed yet?
In the course of my experience, I did notice the ruby lux NIR bulbs are one of the best out there. When compared to far-infrared saunas, a rubylux near infraed powered sauna has super low EMF emissions.
You might want to hook up an EMF testing kit in your sauna just to check for yourself.
