1) How much does a sauna cost?

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.

Is owning a sauna safe - Health Mate Sauna blog article

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.

How much electricity does a sauna use - Health Mate Sauna blog article

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. 

How much space does a sauna need - Health Mate Sauna blog article

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!

Sauna Detox Benefits - Health Mate Sauna blog article

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.

Can you use essential oils in a sauna - Health Mate Sauna blog article

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.

Buying a 2-Person Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna

Making the Case for a Personal Infrared Sauna

You might have heard of an infrared sauna before, but odds are you probably haven’t. We are so used to the idea of steam saunas that we are not really aware of the recent advances in technology that have given way to new and convenient ways to enjoy the benefits of saunas. At Health Mate, we have developed our very own personal infrared sauna, which comes in different lines and presentations in order to satisfy a wide array of needs.

Ultimate Technology

What makes our personal infrared sauna stand out among others is our patented Tecoloy™ heating technology, which manages to deliver 360 degrees of dual wave heat with up to 40% deeper penetration than the leading carbon heater in the market. It also has the fastest heating time, which helps you reduce your energy consumption while using the personal infrared sauna. It is a certified non-toxic heater that provides the most complete infrared sauna experience without compromising quality or well-being at any point in the process. They also allow you the possibility of setting the temperature to your liking and giving you the comfort you deserve out of the experience.

Easy Assembly

Health Mate infrared saunas are made with an easy assembly process in mind. We ourselves design and build the saunas, which allows us to ensure that they always take into account the convenience and ease of use of those who purchase them. They can easily be built between two people in just about an hour. They are all pre-wired, which means that the only tool that you will need in order to assemble one of the saunas is a screwdriver. Even if you are having trouble assembling the sauna, you can easily call our customer service line at (877) 595-3221 for assistance or download one of the assembly guides posted on our website.

That is why we at Health Mate offer quick approval financing options for you. These plans at 0% interest will allow you to splurge a little on your own personal sauna without having to be financially irresponsible.

An Infrared Sauna to Warm Up Winter

Brrr. If you’re reading this anywhere in North America, it’s early November. That means that winter is coming, or it’s already here. Sure, there are places in the country where it doesn’t necessarily matter that winter’s chill is here, but it still gets chillier, even if the snow doesn’t fall. When it gets colder outside, there’s one clear and easy way around that: your own infrared sauna. A sauna from Health Mate can help you to feel better all winter long. Additionally, it’ll come in plenty handy once spring is here, too. 

Infrared Sauna on a Cold Day 

The snow’s been coming down for hours. You can see your breath when you’re outside for even a few moments. You have to go outside to shovel the driveway just so you can get out in the morning to go to work. Then, when you go to work, it’s cold on your way into the office, and it’s somehow even colder on the way home. Even wearing enough layers of clothing, donning your heaviest coat, and cranking up the heater, somehow you’re still cold. These are the kinds of situations that our Health Mate saunas are the perfect remedy for. 

An Infrared Sauna

Safe, Wonderful Blast of Heat 

Stepping into one of these saunas after having been in the cold all day is as wonderful a feeling as there is. You can literally feel the winter melting off of your shoulders. After being exposed to sleet, snow, biting winds, and all the other weapons of winter, you can relax in a truly warm, safe environment. We make our saunas to be perfectly safe and warming, so even if you turn them up a bit after you’ve been out in the cold you don’t have to worry. They are the perfect antidote to chattering teeth, shivering, and more. 

Sauna, Where You Don’t Have to Go Anywhere

You might have read to this point and thought: “well, that’s okay. I can get that from the sauna at the gym. I don’t need to pay to have one in my home.” Well, that’s all well and good until you have to leave that sauna and go back through the cold just to go home. Then, all that warm, wonderful feeling from being in the sauna will literally be blown off of your body. Having your own sauna, on the other hand, makes it so that you don’t have to worry about that. You can rest in the sauna, then take a shower, and then go to bed. No trek through two feet of snow involved at all. 

Alternately, however, you can wake up, step in the sauna, power yourself up for the day, and then trek out into the snow, warm and ready to go to work. With our Health Mate saunas, you’re in control. That’s what’s great about a sauna in your home: it’s your sauna to use whenever you want. When you’re ready to get the right sauna, regardless of the season, call us at (714) 942-4884.

1 Person Sauna: Round Trip Ticket to Paradise

If you’re like so many of us, you go to the gym specifically for the sauna. Sure, maybe you get a swim or a workout in, but you go for the most part just to use the sauna. There’s an incredible feeling that comes from going into the sauna, getting that seat you want, and shutting the door. Of course, for many of us, that’s when the problems occur: someone else opens the door and comes in. Then someone else does, followed by even more people. Suddenly, your private sauna experience, the one that you’ve been dreaming about all day more or less, is now anything but. A 1 person sauna from Health Mate can fix that. With our one person products, you can have a tremendous private sauna right in your home. 

1 Person Sauna: Plenty of Room 

When we say that we have a sauna that seats one, even people who might be into such a thing become initially reticent. That’s understandable. In many industries, when something is said to be “for one,” it actually ends up being too small. Most things that say they seat “one person” actually really don’t have enough room to seat any people. That’s not at all true of our sauna for one. The “Renew 1” sauna has plenty of room for one person to stretch out. For example, the interior dimensions of this sauna are 37 ¼’’ by 35 ¾’’ by 69 ⅞’’. As you can see, that’s plenty of room for one person to be incredibly comfortable in their own sauna. You can enjoy yourself and have the kind of sauna experience that you want. 

1 Person Sauna

Small Enough for Your Home Too 

That being said, it’s still a sauna for one person. This sauna can fit quite well in practically any home or apartment. The exterior dimensions of this sauna are 40’’ by 40 ½’’ by 75 ¼’’. As you can see, that’s plenty of room for you to stretch out in there. By that same token, however, that’s not too big for your home. Many of our customers have them in their basements or in their bedrooms, somewhere where it’s readily accessible to them. 

Your Sauna, Your Rules 

If you look at our Renew 1 on our site, you’ll find that you have the Bluetooth jack and plenty of other accouterments to make this sauna truly your own. That means that you don’t have to worry about someone objecting to your music, the podcast you’re listening to, or anything like this. As this is your sauna for one, you can use this sauna however you see fit. This is the perfect way to end a day, while also being the perfect way to start one-off, too. Of all of our products, the “Renew 1” might be the most aptly named. It renews one person, no matter when they use it. To find out how this sauna can complement your life or to purchase one, give us a call at (714) 942-4884. 

Healthy Together in a 2 Person Sauna

Everyone wants to be healthier. Whether it’s eating right, exercising, or anything else, we all want to live a healthier, happier lifestyle. However, it’s not always easy, particularly when we live with someone else. If one member in a marriage or committed relationship starts trying to force the other one to eat healthier, or to start an exercise program, it can be difficult to get the other person on board (no matter how much they might want to do it or how much they could benefit). This is just one reason that so many couples purchase our 2 person sauna products. These provide a great way for couples to spend time together while both getting health benefits. 

2 Person Sauna: Room for Both 

These saunas are, for so many, the perfect size. That means that they’re big enough for two people to sit comfortably inside of them. However, they also aren’t so big that they don’t fit comfortably in a basement, backroom, bedroom, or something like that. These saunas can give you all of the room you need to feel great while also not being so big as to be an ill-fit for any home. With this sauna, you can take just a small bit of space in your place of living and give you (as well as those you live with) massive health benefits. 

2 person sauna

Pain Relief you Can Share 

There are plenty of fun dates that can provide benefits to both partners. For example, if you both go for a run, you would both get the health benefits from running. The same goes for hiking, working out, and so forth. That’s what makes our saunas for two so great: you can both get the natural pain relief that comes from these saunas. See, we’ve made them with our patented Tecoloy technology. This tech makes it possible for you both to get relief from arthritis, fatigue, sports injuries, and any other aches and pains that we associate with getting older. All you two have to do is sit comfortably and you can literally soak in the health benefits. 

Losing Weight a Simpler Way 

All of us want to lose weight. Even the healthiest, thinnest people you know probably feel like they have to do something to lose weight. It can be one of the most difficult things to do, which is why it’s so important to find healthy ways to lose weight that fit organically into your life. Our infrared saunas have been proven to provide similar benefits to running. Better yet, with our saunas for two, you can get all of those health benefits while just sitting back and enjoying the company of the one you love. Imagine getting all of the health benefits of running while just discussing the events of the day with someone you love. That may sound preposterous, but it’s exactly what our saunas can allow you to do. When you’re ready to know more, give us a call at (714) 942-4884. 

The Right Place to Find an Infrared Sauna for Sale

Infrared Sauna for Sale for 40 Years 


We’ve been in the world of infrared saunas essentially since the beginning. Our company has been offering folks these kinds of saunas for more than four decades. Obviously, the technology has advanced quite a bit. Today’s saunas would seem like something out of science fiction to someone who was with our company when we started. However, every day for the last 40 years, we’ve offered our customers the best in infrared sauna technology. As the definition of an infrared sauna changed, so did our company, always adjusting to the times to offer the best infrared sauna for sale possible.

Best Infrared Technology 


With many sauna companies, they basically just try to use any heating method that’s the least expensive. That’s why so many saunas have what are essentially food lamps in there, the kind of thing that would be shining down on pizza in a 7-11 for hours on end. As you might imagine, that’s not exactly good for your skin (and especially if you get too close to it). Very quickly, we realized that was absolutely the wrong way to go about heating a sauna. However, there was no better heating method on the market. So, we created one. Our Tecoloy heaters are the absolute apex of home infrared sauna tech. These sounds can heat you quickly, completely, and safely. You never have to worry about any of the negative side effects often associated with other forms of home saunas. Even better, with these saunas, you can soak in all of the health benefits associated with properly dispensed infrared heat. 


Assemble Quickly and Easily 


When you get an infrared sauna, you want to, you know, actually go into your infrared sauna. You don’t want to have to take hours (or longer) putting together a sauna. That’s why we made our saunas as easy to assemble as possible. You don’t have to put down “assemble my infrared sauna” as a second job, you can put it together in a very brief period of time. And moreover, when we say “you,” we mean “you, a regular person reading this,” and not “you, a person who has two degrees in engineering.” We’ve made our saunas so that they’re very easy for most people to construct, so that they can enjoy them as quickly as possible. With so many financing options available, you can get the right sauna at Health Mate, then put it together, and enjoy it. Start the process by calling (877) 595-3221.

Start (or End) the Day Right With a 2 Person Sauna

“We don’t seem to talk much anymore.” Do you find yourself saying that to your partner? Or, do you hear them saying it to you? It’s completely understandable. Look at how busy we are all now. It’s difficult to spend a whole day at work, exercise, go through your life, and still find that time to spend with the person that matters most to you. That doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with your relationship, it probably just means that you’re lacking in an opportunity to get it done. A 2 person sauna provides just the place. 


Together in Comfort 


Most people, when think of “sauna,” think of the saunas they might have encountered in hotels or gyms. Those saunas are anything but private, and in many cases, anything but comfortable. As people are going through saunas essentially every day of the year, they tend to wear down quickly. Our saunas, your private home sauna, are essentially made to be the opposite of that. This sauna can be comfortable to sit in. You can even have the music that you want playing. Imagine kicking back with your beloved after a long day, sitting in a sauna, listening to “your songs.” That’s love. And, it’s life in a Health Mate Sauna. 

2 person sauna

Healthy Together 


In relationships, it sometimes feels like there’s one person whose role is always to tell the other: “you need to take better care of yourself” (of course, they often phrase it better than that). This person can change from one to the other over the course of a relationship. When you’re trying to spend more quality time with the one you love, it’s natural to think to spend more time out at a restaurant or a bar. That can be fun, but these saunas can be a better place to connect to your partner. When you’re in one of our saunas, you’ll both get the incredible health benefits that come from being in a sauna. That means you’ll both be soaking in that warmth, both of you will have all of the toxins flushed out of your body. With our 2 person sauna, you can live healthier together. 


Sauna on a Whim 


Say that, right now, you or your partner leaned over to the other and said: “let’s go to a 2 person sauna.” For many, this would be an impossibility. Maybe you’re reading this at very early in the morning, or perhaps very late at night. At neither time will a public sauna be open. Even if a sauna is open, well, you’d both have to get to it. That means you’d have to get dressed, and also bring with you what you’re going to wear in the sauna. When you have your own sauna, all of these considerations vanish. If you want to just go into a sauna early in the morning, late at night, or any other time of the day, you can do so. For the right kind of sauna for you and your home, call us at (877) 595-3221.
