Optimal brain health starts at the cellular level.
Cellular health impacts your brain’s ability to heal, detoxify, and thrive.
Near-infrared light is the most efficient tool to boost mitochondrial activity and overall cellular energy.
For many years the only way to get near-infrared light benefits was to go to an expensive spa.
Nowadays, you can buy red lights that deliver these spa-like benefits for your home.
In my opinion, the leader in this market is Sauna Space.
Their red-light saunas are safe, easy to assemble, and deliver the most potent results.
The following review highlights everything you need to know about Sauna Space’s red-light saunas and why I think they are the industry leader in at-home saunas.
What Is SaunaSpace
SaunaSpace is a small US-based company selling hand-crafted, red light/infrared saunas for your home.
Each sauna includes incandescent light therapy that delivers features like near-infrared photobiomodulation, heating detoxification, and electromagnetic field stress protection. 1Sauna Space, Sauna.space
Red-light therapy like this used to only be available in expensive spas.
They offer several options of full saunas and bulb-panels that easily fit in your home.
What Makes SaunaSpace’s Saunas Different?
Each SaunaSpace red light uses full-spectrum, incandescent bulbs that mimic the sun’s natural light waves.
Whereas other companies use LED’s, SaunaSpace’s 250 Watt bulbs produce approximately 30-67 mW/cm2 irradiance at the recommended usage distance of 18 to 24 inches, ensuring the therapeutic doses of photobiomodulation are achieved. 2Michael R. Hamblin MECHANISMS OF LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY, Department of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School. 2008
For you, that means more therapeutic effects from the red light.
Infrared saunas like SaunaSpace produce infrared light waves that reach your skin and induce a complex cellular process known as photobiomodulation.
Photobiomodulation is the stimulation of skin cells and regeneration processes by using atraumatic, non-thermal, and non-ionizing red or near-infrared light waves.4Michael R. Hamblin MECHANISMS OF LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY, Department of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School. 20085Alexander Wunsch and Karsten Matuschka, A Controlled Trial to Determine the Efficacy of Red and Near-Infrared Light Treatment in Patient Satisfaction, Reduction of Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Skin Roughness, and Intradermal Collagen Density Increase, Photomed Laser Surg. 2014
The stimulation of skin cells ultimately stimulates mitochondria in cells all throughout your body to promote energy and healing.
SaunaSpace’s Sauna Benefits
SaunaSpace’s red-light saunas come with many clinically-proven benefits.
Research has shown that increasing the basal body temperature by up to 3 degrees for a few minutes can induce detoxification at a cellular level.6Farzad Salehpour,Javad Mahmoudi, Farzin Kamari, Saeed Sadigh-Eteghad, Seyed Hossein Rasta, and Michael R Hamblin, Brain Photobiomodulation Therapy: A Narrative Review, Mol Neurobiol. 20197Laukkanen T.

This is important as many experts believe that environmental toxicity contributes to mental disorders.8Alicja BORTKIEWICZ, Health effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF EMF), Ind Health. 2019
Several studies have demonstrated that frequent sauna bathing can promote mental well-being alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and mood disorders.9Laukkanen T.a,c · Laukkanen J.A.a,b,c · Kunutsor S.K, Sauna Bathing and Risk of Psychotic Disorders: A Prospective Cohort Study, Med Princ Pract. 2018
One of red-light therapy’s most touted benefits is its anti-aging benefits.
Light waves in sauna therapy stimulate active cellular regeneration, increase cell turnover and promote cell proliferation, leading to anti-aging effects.10Alexander Wunsch and Karsten Matuschka, A Controlled Trial to Determine the Efficacy of Red and Near-Infrared Light Treatment in Patient Satisfaction, Reduction of Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Skin Roughness, and Intradermal Collagen Density Increase, Photomed Laser Surg. 201411SAUNASPACE INCANDESCENT THERAPY
Many studies show that sauna sessions can reduce the risk of developing psychotic disorders in some people by inducing feelings of relaxation and calmness.12Farzad Salehpour, Javad Mahmoudi, Farzin Kamari, Saeed Sadigh-Eteghad,Seyed Hossein Rasta,and Michael R Hamblin, Brain Photobiomodulation Therapy: A Narrative Review, Mol Neurobiol. 201913Laukkanen T.

Conditions Helped w. Sauna
With over 7000 published studies, sauna use has proven itself to be a potent tool in your health journey.
Below are just a few of those examples.
Saunas stimulate the parasympathetic activity in the body, which means they transition the body into a “rest and digest” mode.14by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, WHY DOES THE NEAR INFRARED LAMP SAUNA HAVE AN EXTREMELY PARASYMPATHETIC (HEALING) EFFECT, LD Wilson Consultants, Inc. 2019
The parasympathetic nervous system induces the sensation of deep relaxation in the body, which helps to clear brain fog.15Michael R Hamblin, Mechanisms and applications of the anti-inflammatory effects of
photobiomodulation , AIMS Biophysics,. 2017
Sauna bathing has been shown to decrease adrenal fatigue, increase athletic performance and improve muscle circulation after strenuous exercise.16by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, WHY DOES THE NEAR INFRARED LAMP SAUNA HAVE AN EXTREMELY PARASYMPATHETIC (HEALING) EFFECT, LD Wilson Consultants, Inc. 201917SAUNASPACE INCANDESCENT THERAPY
Regular sauna use increases the body’s metabolism, improve blood circulation, and relieve stress in the body by stimulating health effects similar to aerobic exercise.
Sauna stimulates skin detoxification and elimination of waste metabolites from the skin by sweating.18by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, WHY DOES THE NEAR INFRARED LAMP SAUNA HAVE AN EXTREMELY PARASYMPATHETIC (HEALING) EFFECT, LD Wilson Consultants, Inc. 201919SAUNASPACE INCANDESCENT THERAPY
Near-Infrared Light penetrates the skin, boosts microcirculation, stimulates collagen, and repairs the integrity of the skin.
Near-Infrared Light can also be used to non-invasively treat specific skin conditions such as acne scars, eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.20Michael R Hamblin, Mechanisms and applications of the anti-inflammatory effects of photobiomodulation , AIMS Biophysics,. 2017
SaunaSpace Is EMF Free
For added safety, SaunaSpace has a shielding design on the light panel body which ensures zero electric field emission.
SaunaSpace Assembly and Tech Specs
SaunaSpace’s panels and saunas are hand-crafted and designed to be portable and stowable.
All four models are easy to set up and use.
Each sauna is constructed with hypoallergenic, natural, and premium-quality materials.
The compact footprint with access to wheel-chair makes them mobile and flexible to use.
They can be installed on any indoor flooring such as wood, laminate, tile, or synthetic.
For those concerned with temperature, the heat generated from the sauna does not significantly heat the surroundings.
SaunaSpace vs. Joov
Joov is another popular red-light brand often touted by the wellness industry’s top influencers.
In my opinion, these 2 saunas aren’t even close.
Even SaunaSpace’s panel and solo bulbs are a better option than Joov.
LED vs Incandescence
One of the key differences between SaunaSpace and Joovv is that SaunaSpace utilizes the incandescent lamp technology whereas Joovv utilizes the LED panels.
For me, this is one of the biggest selling points to SaunaSpace over Joov.
There are fundamental differences between Joov’s LED bulbs and SaunaSpace’s incandescent bulbs.
The main difference being that LED bulbs like Joov’s flicker at a frequency of about 120 times per second, whereas incandescent bulbs do not.
While you may not consciously notice the difference, your skin might.
The steady light stream from incandescent bulbs better mimics natural light and is the light we’ve evolved with.
That’s not to say an LED panel like Joov isn’t effective.
In fact, experts suggest that there aren’t any significant differences between the light sources in terms of their photobiomodulation effects as long as their wavelengths and power densities are comparable.
However, for those who are interested in more native health inputs SaunaSpace is a better option.
Power Output and EMF
Joovv and SaunaSpace differ in their respective power outputs.
For instance, Joovv uses 125 Watt bulbs, whereas SaunaSpace uses 250 Watt bulbs.
Joov has also been shown to emit some EMF radiation while SaunaSpace’s bulbs are completely EMF free.
Ideally, you want to keep your EMF exposure as low as possible.24Alicja BORTKIEWICZ, Health effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF EMF), Ind Health. 2019
■ SaunaSpace is safe to use on a daily basis for approximately 20 minutes in the beginning, provided you receive the doses of photobiomodulation within the recommended therapeutic range of 10 to 100 mW/cm2.25by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, WHY DOES THE NEAR INFRARED LAMP SAUNA HAVE AN EXTREMELY PARASYMPATHETIC (HEALING) EFFECT, LD Wilson Consultants, Inc. 2019
“Love this. My goal this year was to work on reducing my stress and helping improve my health’s resilience, and I think I have made a significant dent in my goal by using SaunaSpace. SaunaSpace has been such a wonderful addition to my home for all of my family, everyone of us use it and love it, even the kiddos.” –
