Saunas are elevating how we invest in our everyday well-being. Finding the right sauna for your health needs and lifestyle can be challenging, though. At Health Mate Sauna, we use infrared technology that offers a rejuvenating and revitalizing sauna experience, providing plenty of mental and physical benefits along the way. To help you navigate the research process in choosing a home infrared sauna, we’ve answered the 7 most common questions about infrared saunas so you can make an informed decision.
1) How much does a sauna cost?
When you invest in an infrared sauna you are investing in so much more than just a piece of equipment. A sauna is also an investment in your health and well-being. Health Mate saunas can range in price from $2k to $10k+ with many options available among the models. Our premium, handcrafted saunas are designed to fit a variety of budgets. Plus, you have the option of financing, so you can own the sauna that’s right for you and pay it off over time.
2) What are the health benefits?
From relaxation and pain relief to immune support and weight loss, the multitude of benefits a sauna provides is extensive. Saunas are most commonly known to help relieve tired, aching muscles after a long day, in addition to easing stress and tension. They can also help rid your body of toxins, ease joint pain, and aid in optimal blood circulation.
3) Is it safe to use?
Yes! Infrared saunas naturally warm the body from within, penetrating your muscles and nerves. Our saunas have all been tested for ultra-low EMF, which means your radiation exposure is at a safe level. Since infrared saunas heat the body instead of just heating the air in the room, it’s a more relaxing experience. Follow directions, along with any recommended medical advice, to ensure the best outcome.
4) How much electricity does it use?
Infrared saunas do not warm the air or generate steam as a traditional sauna does. In that way, infrared heat emits at a lower temperature and requires less electricity. Health Mate saunas typically require 120V and can use a standard outlet in any room. However, larger saunas sometimes require additional voltage. See our models for more details and specifications.
5) How much space is required?
Health Mate saunas are designed as small as a portable dome sauna and as large as a therapy lounge. They don’t require additional plumbing or refurbishing. Also, saunas can be placed on wood, tile, concrete, or carpet, basically, anywhere you have a corner or free spot in your living area. Even better, they are simple to assemble!
6) Does an infrared sauna help you detox?
Your infrared sauna will inevitably cause your body to sweat. Sweating is the body’s natural process for regulating temperature and allows for a level of detox which takes some load off your liver function. Infrared sauna technology heats the body directly by using infrared heat and light. This raises the body’s temperature deep inside the tissues and organs and promotes a deeper level of detox, while also boosting your immune levels.
7) Can I use essential oils in the sauna?
Absolutely! We encourage you to incorporate essential oils into your sauna sessions to enhance the normal infrared sauna experience. With accessories like the Aroma Mate aromatherapy cup you can transform your sauna into a spa-like, calming oasis.
