I did not expect to like this nearly as much as I do. I have ME/CFS/FM and had tried using a FIT wrap at a local salon, loved it, but at $99/50 minutes, it simply wasn't practical. This was SO worth the price. It seems a bit flimsy on set up, but it does the job and does it well. I leave it set up in a spare room and use it almost every day. I am 100% satisfied. Helps with the pain of ME/CFS/FM and is oddly energizing, unlike other saunas which use heat or steam and leave you feeling weak and drained. If you want to learn more about the benefits of FIR (far infra red) treatment, google Waon therapy.
I researched over a dozen similar products before deciding on this one. I am quite happy with the quality, size and overall value of this product. I have had it for about 2 months and use it 3-4 times a week. It works as advertised and is certainly large enough. The chair that comes with it is only rated for 100Kg (220 lbs approx.) but I have had no issues with it at 270 lbs other than it being a little short. The frame is metal, but they have capped the connection points so that the parts that come into contact with your body do not get unpleasantly hot.I only have a couple minor issues. It isn't as easy to set up in tight quarters as they claim. The way it unfolds means that you need a spaces with an extra 2 feet of width/length over the size of the unit to maneuver around it while setting it up. Also the front doesn't have any brace or latch to keep it open, so it tends to try and fold back in unless you brace it open with you legs. Considering that there are several places/ways to fix that particular issue, it seems strange that they didn't. I will be adding my own bracing soon, so that will fix my major complaint. I will also replace the chair with one a little higher.Overall very happy with this product. The only thing that kept it from being 5 stars was the lack of a suitable way to keep the front from trying to fold back in on itself other than my own legs being in the way.
Updated 10/25/17 @ 5:450’AMAZON WONT LET ME UPDATW MY RATING TO 1 STARAfter two days of 50min sessions I can say it does do the following:Produce dry heat that will make you sweat and increase heart rate.Produce EMF rating between 0.07 - 13.5mg.I saw the highest emf rating at the center of the sauna 12-13.5emfHeating events fluctuated in EMF, each would go up and down at different intervals.10 min mark I started to notice significant sweating when sitting upright fully within (arms and head insides)30 min mark I start to fell discomfit from the heat and seating position.40 min mark discomfort passesResting heart rate before entering 72bpmResting heart rate 15 mins in at 150f 92bpmResting heart rate 25 mins in at 150f 102bpmWe returned ours for not meeting safe range of EMF. Proceed with caution. You may be causing more harm than good.
The box the product was delivered in is labeled in several places in very large print as "Steam Sauna Room". I almost returned the product without even opening it as I had clearly ordered an FIR portable sauna. After examining the photos on the box I decided to chance opening it up and found that it did contain an FIR sauna. Minus one point for confusing packaging.Next I tried reading the instruction manual. Tried I say because it reads like a Chinese manual was run through Google translate to two or three different languages before finally trying English. Here are a couple of examples:"Hand fetch control explain1. open electrical source ,when TME show 40 minutes(default). the TEMP will show one file (default)2. The temp have one to six file in all .there into third file is middle temperature, the commonly we make use of the sixth file in winter and first file for invalidism haman.3. The TIME :0 to 40 minute. control go or down arrowhead can add or reduce 5 minute.""How to get rid of installation:When fit or fold prevent caspate thing stick far infread sauna room.A.Open up sauna room let far infread fever heat prick up.B.Put control into forging of bag."These are not isolated examples. The user's manual is close to incomprehensible. Luckily the unit is fairly simple and most things can be figured out using common sense. Minus one for hideously bad translation.After plugging in the unit it heated up quickly and seems to produce the required temperatures so plus one for functionality.Now for the biggie. The packaging included a loose piece of paper which asks for five star feedback and asks that you contact them if you have problems. That's fine, however it goes on to say that leaving negative feedback is against their two year warranty. Seriously? Maybe that's just another translation problem but it has no place on any product sold through Amazon. Minus one point.EDIT: The vendor contacted me via email after this review went live to assure me that negative reviews would not violate their warranty policy in spite of the terribly worded warranty info sheet included in the box. I would strongly suggest that the vendor contract someone with a firmer grasp of the English language and have them rewrite all of their documentation. I'm upgrading my review from three to four stars based on this exchange.
I absolutely LOVE my sauna!!!! I recommend it to anyone looking to relax while shedding extra pounds.
Works great. Notice big difference when I don't use it. Great for aching body.
