Radiant Health Sauna Review – Best Sauna Ever Made?

This Radiant Health Sauna review is going to blow your socks off if you’re looking for one of the lowest emf far infrared saunas on the planet!  Yes, it’s that good. This infrared sauna is one of the easiest saunas I’ve ever put together, and if you’ve seen all my infrared sauna reviews, you know I’m picky as hell.  Ultra low emf, electric and magnetic fields mitigated in this sauna, no RF radiation, simple to put together, good build quality, low VOC’s… we. have. a. winner.

Over a year ago, I bought a Radiant Sauna from Amazon. As you can see from my first Radiant Sauna Review, it turned out to be total trash, fit for a bonfire. Literally, just burn it. From then on, I discounted anything called “radiant” from that point forward. This turned out to be a mistake on my part, because right under my nose was the REAL RADIANT SAUNA, from the Canadian company Radiant Health Saunas. They’re not sold on Amazon like the knock-off brands, only direct. It’s unfortunate, because all this time, one of the best saunas in the world was hidden in plain sight from my oversight. And admittedly, I wasn’t willing to even look at another radiant sauna for over a year, after getting pissed off for wasting my time with returning the previous one, that had adhesives and high emf in it. It was only when I raised the EMF standards for 2019, and went back to the drawing board searching for companies who mitigate electric fields did I stumble upon this amazing sauna.

The real Radiant Health Saunas, are some of the best far infrared saunas ever made. I’ve been testing mine every day now, and it has lower emf than almost any other fir sauna on the market. You guys are going to love this sauna… anyone with EHS or that’s sensitive to EMF of all types, or has any chemical sensitivities will love the fact that this sauna comes with NONE OF THAT!


Summary: Radiant Health Sauna Review Cliff Notes

  • One of the lowest far infrared saunas on the planet (might even be the #1 ultra low out of every brand on the market)
  • Has electric fields mitigated, not just magnetic like most sauna companies
  • ZERO RF radiation for sensitive folks (no bluetooth or wifi transmissions at all… a true healing sanctuary)
  • Low, low, low, low, body voltage (did I mention ultra low???)
  • Not much more expensive than most brands, and in some cases cheaper!
  • Note – the real Radiant Health Saunas are NOT sold on Amazon, Walmart.com, etc…
  • ** Buyer Beware of the knockoff Radiant Saunas I bought from Amazon here & here

  1. Me again. So great levels(low) of bad stuff – is there a way you can test the IR output and spectrum? i.e. does it have high levels of the good stuff?

    • Hi Jayson,

      Good question. I’ve been looking at spectrometers to take the testing to the next level, but it’s a little outside of my wheelhouse. Is there a meter you’d recommend that isn’t ungodly expensive?

  2. Thank You, kinda stumbled onto you first thing in my research, and it’s exactly what I needed to hear! It is always welcomed when others do the hard work and the rest of us soak in the knowledge, so I appreciate you! I will use your code and referral! Yahoo!

    • Hi Annie,

      You could try to search all of Craigslist, but it’s going to be a really tough find… I doubt anyone would want to get rid of their Radiant Health. You can find deals on other used saunas though if you’re on a super tight budget, you just have to really research the heck out of them if they’re older models (or compromise and get a less than ideal sauna for the time being).

  3. Hi there. This is Sarah again. I talked to you about follow Dr. Wilson’s protocol 2 days. So I like the building the box idea, however I don’t know if that would be enough sweating for me. You are right the Mylar enclosures with the 250 W lights are a total rip off! They are about 2,000. No way. Ugh. I am now thinking of buying a used thermal life far infrared sauna (brand radiant health). I know these are the only hypoallergenic brand out there on the market. I saw you did a review on radiant health saunas and the new ones are actually low emf. How about the radiant health saunas made in 2013? Good quality still? One of these are being sold for 1,500 on eBay which has only been slightly used. This looks like a great deal.

    If they aren’t low EMF that isn’t a deal breaker because I plan to pre-heat the sauna, turn it off and use the infrared 250 w philips bulbs for actual heating my body after preheating it. Dr. Wilson has an article on how to do this conversion (far infrared sauna conversion to the 250 w bulb sauna) and my boyfriend is pretty handy. I just want to be able to sweat more and I already sweat so minimally with just the 250 w bulbs. Preheating the sauna may give me more ability to sweat. Thoughts?? Again thanks so much. You have been extremely helpful and grateful for your work!

  4. Oh crap I meant high tech health for brand with the thermal life saunas rather than radiant health. Whoops! All the names sound the same. But I am looking at a a thermal life by high tech health from 2013. For 1,500. And then converting it by putting the 250 w bulbs inside per Dr. Wilson’s protocol! I hope the preheat in this sauna would help me sweat more than making a box alone. Thanks Sarah

    • Hi Sarah,

      It’s hard for me to understand what you’re saying here. The Thermal Life by High Tech Health is no longer made. Should be a fine cabinet, but I believe they did not mitigate electric fields back then, and the Thermal model was made by Health Mate. (don’t quote me on that… pretty sure it’s right though)

      The bulbs will work if you build an insulated enclosure like we talked about. No one on the market sells this though, you have to build it. (I mean build it like a studded wall, so there is an actual external insulated panel, on the outside of the radiant heat barrier.)

      Sure you could do that, but I’m not sure if I would pay that for a sauna that has been discontinued. Try to get one for less if you’re just using it for the enclosure. There should be some broken ones on craigslist for $500 bucks or so.

  5. This was very helpful. Thank you. Sorry for the confusion. I get it now. If we build a small box (my boyfriend can build it), then the infrared bulbs should be enough to heat it without the far infrared heat from a sauna. I will let you know how the final product turns out, my boyfriend is pretty handy so it should go well!! We will follow your advice + Dr. Wilson’s instructions.

    You are right it’s not worth it to buy one discontinued and not on the market. Also I would have to get a bigger sized sauna to fit the bulbs in if I wanted to use the far infrared. Not worth the cost. Thanks again! Enjoy the videos.

  6. Hi Matt! Im considering to buy the sauna you recommend but their website doesnt have a price, so where should i put the discount code?lol im sorry if its a dumb question.. i saw they sell it on amazon Radiant Saunas 2-Person Hemlock Infrared Sauna with 6 Carbon Heaters, Chromotherapy Lighting, Oxygen Ionizer
    an its 1600$ so its cheaper than you mentioned, am I missing something? please any tip is appreciated! thank you for your review.

  7. Hi Matt;

    Thank-you for all the up front data gathering you do to help to make us all make an informed decision before buying an expensive product. You EMF readings in this regard are invaluable.

    Do you have any CHOH or TVOC readings from a Radiant Health Sauna ?

    I purchased a HTH TR-2 in early Apr’19 (as u know). i have used it roughly 43 hrs. Using a PCE RCM-15 meter (I’ve used 4 different meters), and with the door closed, the CHOH and TVOC levels still rise to more than 1000% above levels deemed safe by the California Office of Environmental Health. I’m expecting/hoping these levels drop soon, but meanwhile, 3 friends are wanting to purchase a FIR sauna.

    Thanks again for your efforts Matt.

    • Hey Bruce,

      Good question. I know they have a VOC report but I’m not sure if it’s what you’re looking for. I would call and talk to Randy, he won’t bullshit you whether it’s what you want or not.

      I’m not 100% on that, I don’t have that meter. A quick search on Amazon for “PCE RCM-15” draws a blank for me… as long as it’s not thousands of dollars, I can buy one and test it for you? (I have both the Radiant and HTH sitting in the other room unless someone buys them this weekend, happy to do whatever while they’re still here until the next batch comes in) I’ve been really hesitant to pick up any more of these and use it as gospel… there are a lot of reviews out there about them being inaccurate compared to a several thousand dollar meter.

      I know we chatted about this before, but I can’t remember… do you get the same levels whether you are personally in the sauna, as when you’re no one is in it? Just curious how much I contribute to it when I’m inside.

      P.S. – you might really like Dr. Klinghardt’s stuff on saunas. He believes that no one should ever use a sauna with the door closed and not rotating towels outside the sauna. He says severely toxic people off gas as they sweat it out, and is keen on removing situations where you can “re-breathe it”? This is outside of my wheelhouse to technically describe, but there are some long lectures on youtube that have good tidbits in the middle you might like/find relevant.

  8. Hi Matt;

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will indeed check with Randy.

    The other 3 meters I used were purchased from Amazon, but to improve consensus, I also bought the RCM-15 directly ($216 US) from the pce-instruments.com website. It’s German, but components may originate from anywhere. To me, it’s proven to be the most sensitive/consistently accurate thus far, though if I could find a professional meter that was less expensive than a compact car I’d buy it.

    Good point. I constantly check the levels when I’m inside, but I also check them while I’m outside (i.e. running the “cleansing cycles,” door closed). It does not take very long for the CHOH and TVOC levels to reach rather alarming levels with the door closed, with me outside. I do rotate the towels. In fact, I’m doing everything I can (e.g. wipe downs) to try to “tame” these levels as quickly as possible. But for now, I am resigned to opening the door about half the length of my thumb, and using an external fan (in addition to the roof fan) to exchange air. This means my sauna temps reach only to the high 120’s (F).
    I bring these readings up only to warn those that may not be aware that formaldehyde is a Group 1 (Carcinogenic to humans) toxin, as is benzene.
    Side note: The largest impact you will contribute to internal air quality while you are inside the sauna is due to flatulence, as it contains methane and other VOCs.

    I appreciate the heads-up on Dr. Klinghardt. I will investigate his findings/recommendations.

    Any findings you dig up are helpful. Thanks again Matt.

    • Ah I see what you’re doing. I have an idea for you, but I’ll have to shoot a video just for you to show it to you.

      I cut a hole in the roof of one of my saunas last year, and added a fresh air fan. With the door cracked, you can cycle the air pretty easily and still maintain good heat because it’s reversible. So most ceiling mounted fans are always exhaust, which pulls the heat right out making the sauna work super hard to maintain cabin temp. With this, you adjust the direction and speed, and bring in fresh air from the room at a higher rate than it can escape from the door.

      Might help, I don’t know…

      *Edit – now that I typed this out, I think you have a newer HTH with a fan built in. Disregard if so.

  9. Appreciate your thought process. You are correct, my HTH TR-2 is only 3 weeks old, and its fan is exhaust.
    It is a relatively cheap fan (I use several of them when I build my computers), so I could easily reverse it to draw in fresh air (rather than exhaust the heat), and I could also replace it with a higher CFM fan. Though reversing its flow would compete with the external fan at the door. Also, the off-gassing (i.e. toxic air buildup) correlates positively with temperature (as one would expect), so experiments would need to be run to optimize the arrangement..
    As I type this, I’m running another series of “cleansing” cycles (door nominally closed, opened periodically to vent), and the TVOC levels rise to off-scale at >16X safe levels, CHOH levels are >10X. Really hope these improve over time.
    I don’t want to be selfish and take-up any more space on your blog here. Thanks a bunch Matt.

  10. Wondering why far infrared users pre-heat the sauna. Don’t we benefit from the far infrared as the unit is heating; plus doesn’t the emitters shut off once the set temperature is reached diminishing the full value of the far infrared?

    • To increase the air temp int he cabin just a bit before hopping in. But you’re on to something here that I’ve been meaning to make a video about… I’ve changed the way I use my sauna a lot over the last year, I’ll make a video for you. Any other questions you want me to stick in there while I’m at it?

      Thanks Mike!

  11. Thanks Matt,

    I applaud you on your excellent reviews on the various far infrared saunas and the coherent way you articulate them.

    Keep up the good work.

    I allege that essentially all our health problems are a product of our daily unavoidable absorption of the numerous deadly toxins, lack of vital nutrients due to our poor diets, and the Electrical, Magnetic and Radio radiation fields that surround us.

    I am planning to purchase the 4 person Radiant Health Sauna in the near future to add to my Pulsed EMT Therapy.

    Thanks again.

  12. Hi Matt, Thinking of purchasing a Radiant Health 2 person sauna….. have you tested the Radiant Health sauna Carbon Fiber heater for toxicity….I think they are made overseas. Also, have you tested all material for the 2 person sauna for toxicity…Let me know.Thanks, Daryl

    • Hi Daryl,

      I don’t personally have equipment to test individual materials. They’re pretty honest about their VOC report though, and it’s not one of the types where a company ships off a bottle of air inside the sauna to test for VOC’s either… they’re using a fully assembled operational sauna for the VOC report.

  13. Hi Mike ;

    Any progress on measuring CHOH or TVOC in your Radiant Health Sauna ?
    The numbers Randy sent me are exceptional, so I just want to verify them.

    Thanks;

    Bruce

  14. Hi Matt,

    Thank you so much for your vlog and reviews on Saunas. We want to purchase one as our youngest son has had Crohn’s disease for 10 years and has almost died a few times. I want to buy the best, but like you felt before, it’s very daunting and overwhelming because you read these sauna websites, and they all sound very convincing and it’s hard to make a wise decision. Thank you so much for all of the testing you have done and for sharing it with us! I’m so glad to hear that you’re feeling better now. One question: Have you ever looked into CelebrationSaunas.com? Their site looks very convincing, but as I said, they all do. I would love to hear what you have to say, and thank you again!

    • Hi Melanie,

      Yes I’ve done a few videos on those, but have never bought one. (nor will I ever without more evidence that they’re different than the Dynamic Sauna I bought from Costco)

      Those are Golden Designs saunas (it says it right on the website): “In 2007, Golden Designs started purchasing the Chinese factories that were constructing what would become our Maxxus Sauna line, our Dynamic Sauna Line and our Golden Designs sauna line.”

      Now these Celebration models might a different line or custom production run, I don’t know. But until I see live video of all (3) electric field levels, magnetic field levels, and body voltage levels, I would not put my own child in one of them.

      If you can get them to show you proof of everything and it’s what you’re looking for, buy it.

  15. Matt,

    Wanted to thank you for doing reviews. Being a thrifty kind of person, I would have bought one of the inexpensive models that I would have been very unhappy with. We ended up with a 2 person Radiant Health Sauna. They were running a $500 special at the time but only for another week (I hate sales pressure). I mentioned that I found their sauna review on your website and they said “Don’t worry about the week, we offer the Matt Justice $500 discount). I was still doing research on saunas and wasn’t ready to buy one yet.

    As you said in your review, the workmanship on the Radiant Health Sauna is top notch. I’m a woodworking enthusiast in my spare time and I was impressed on how well it was put together and how joints matched up.

    It took my wife and I an hour and a half to put it together. Definitely needed both of us to assemble it. Snapped together like a puzzle, only needed the provided Allen wrench to the door handle on and a step stool to make the wiring connections on top.

    The sauna was well wrapped and crated on a skid on Friday night. I ran the electric on Saturday morning and now have used it 4 times in 4 days. My wife and I use it separately, I like to warm up with the sauna, my wife likes to step in after it’s 130 degrees.

    Overall it’s too soon to feel any health benefits. So far it relaxes me, and my skin tingles after my session and a shower.

    Thanks again for all you reviews, they really helped on making a decision and saving me $500.

  16. Hi, I am ready to buy a one person Radiant Sauna after intense research and concern about EMFs. The only thing that I am not sure about is the maximum temp of 123 degrees, which seems rather low, so I am concerned about the amount of time I will have to stay in it to get a sweat on. I am using the sauna for health problems. Do you consider it effective in detoxing even though the highest temp is 123 degrees? And how long can you stay in it?

    • Hi Dania,

      I’m not sure who told you those max temperature figures, but they’re not accurate. The sauna is just getting started at 125 degrees F, and takes about 25 minutes to preheat to that temp from a dead cold start. Most people find between 130 – 140 F their comfort range. (my favorite for longer sessions is about 133 F)

      About an hour at lower temperatures, but it varies depending on your heat tolerance. I have some videos on it that you might like on YouTube.
