PEMF vs Sauna Blanket


In the realm of wellness and holistic health, there is an abundance of innovative products designed to promote relaxation, healing, and rejuvenation. Two such products that have gained popularity in recent years are the Infrared PEMF Mat and the Infrared Sauna Blanket.

While both utilize infrared technology and offer various benefits, it is essential to understand their unique characteristics to make an informed decision on which one suits your needs best. 

TL:DR – PEMF is natural pulsed electromagnetic frequencies used to stimulate the body for overall wellness benefits. Infrared Sauna Blankets use FAR Infrared Light to heat your body, elevating heart rate, burning more calories and adding with the body’s natural purification process via sweating. 

In this article, we will delve into the differences between an Infrared PEMF Mat and an Infrared Sauna Blanket, helping you discover which option aligns with your wellness goals.

What is PEMF?

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. It is a form of therapy that utilizes electromagnetic fields to improve well-being. The therapy involves the use of low-frequency electromagnetic pulses that are applied to the body.

The concept of electromagnetic therapy has been around for centuries, with ancient civilizations using magnets and magnetic fields for healing purposes. However, modern PEMF therapy has evolved to incorporate advanced technology and scientific understanding.

PEMF devices typically consist of coils or electrodes that generate electromagnetic fields. The pulsating electromagnetic fields create micro currents within the body, which can have various therapeutic effects.

Key features of an Infrared Sauna Blanket

FAR Infrared Heat Technology: The primary mechanism of an Infrared Sauna Blanket is the use of infrared heat. It employs infrared rays to penetrate deep into the body's tissues. These rays are known to generate heat and promote a range of wellness benefits.

Full-Body Experience: Unlike localized options such as infrared mats or pads, an Infrared Sauna Blanket envelops the entire body, providing a comprehensive sauna-like experience. It offers coverage from head to toe, allowing the infrared heat to penetrate various areas simultaneously.

Portable and Space-Saving: One of the key advantages of an Infrared Sauna Blanket is its portability and space-saving design. It is lightweight and easy to store, making it an excellent option for individuals who have limited space or prefer to enjoy sauna therapy in the comfort of their own home. Additionally, it is convenient for those who frequently travel, as it can be easily packed and used wherever they go.

Sweating: Like traditional saunas, the Infrared Sauna Blanket induces sweating, which plays a crucial role in the body's purification process. Sweating helps eliminate toxins, heavy metals, and other impurities from the body, promoting overall well-being and improved skin health.

Relaxation and Stress Relief: The infrared heat emitted by the blanket can create a soothing and relaxing experience. It can help alleviate muscle tension, reduce stress levels, and provide a sense of calmness. Many individuals find the experience of using an Infrared Sauna Blanket to be a rejuvenating practice.

Weight Management and Cellulite Reduction: The combination of infrared heat and increased perspiration can contribute to temporary weight loss through water loss. Regular use of an Infrared Sauna Blanket, along with a healthy lifestyle, can assist in weight management goals. Additionally, some individuals report a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. By raising your heart rate during your session, you can burn more calories.

The BON CHARGE Sauna Blanket has been designed to heat up quickly and has been dubbed the hottest Sauna Blanket in the world by MindBodyGreen.

Should I Choose an Infrared PEMF Mat or an Infrared Sauna Blanket?

Whether you should choose a PEMF Mat or Sauna Blanket really depends on what you are looking to achieve.

If you are looking for weight loss, relaxation, and improved metabolism then an Infrared Sauna Blanket would be best for you.
