A Home Infrared Sauna: Relaxation (and More) When You Want

A home infrared sauna allows you to use a sauna whenever you want. There’s no waiting in line, there’s no travel or parking, you don’t have to sit around other people (unless you want to) – it is entirely, utterly yours. As you might imagine, this is possibly the best way to relax after a long day at work. Instead of sitting on the couch watching television, you can literally sweat every part of your job out through your pores in a matter of minutes. It is as relaxing as can be. However, there’s more to our home saunas than just relaxation (although the relaxation is pretty great).

Home Infrared Sauna: Pain Relief on Your Terms

Whenever something starts to hurt or ache, we’re often compelled to take something. Take a pill, take some medicine, apply a cream or ointment, even do some stretching – there’s always some active measure that we’re told to take, to feel better. However, for many of us, those actions don’t really do all that much. That’s especially true if you’ve been doing them for a while. Our home saunas, however, can provide plenty of pain relief. Better still, you don’t have to do anything – you just have to sit there. A few minutes in our saunas can help with all different kinds of chronic pain conditions, and you don’t have to put anything in your body to reap those benefits. Beyond that, when your sauna is in your home, you can do this when you’d like. So, if you start to feel a bit achy in the morning or at night, you can just pop into your spa for a bit, and pop out stronger than ever.

Support Your Immune System

As of this writing, it’s mid-September. That means that in much of the continent, the kids are back in school, the leaves are falling and so too are the temperatures. All of these things combined can make it a bad time of year for health. When you go out in public, you’ve probably heard people sniffling. However, if you have one of our saunas in your home, you can do a bit to boost your immune system. Sure, you can’t make your immune system invincible, but you can make it a bit stronger. Our saunas can generate quite a bit of heat, and they can make you hot, too. In fact, our saunas can induce an artificial (and perfectly healthy) fever. That’s what your body does when an infection strikes. These “little fevers” can make your immune system that much stronger and that much more prepared for the cold season ahead.

A Beautiful Sauna in Your Home

There are benefits to having a sauna in your home that go beyond your health, too. The truth is that our saunas just look great. The wood exteriors, the compact size – they make the perfect addition to a home of practically any size. Learn more when you call us at (877) 595-3221.

Personal Sauna: Your Health on Your Terms

You go to your local gym to use the sauna. You’ve been looking forward to this all day, as it’s been a long day at work and you need to just let the entire day go. Or, alternately, you got there very early in the morning because you want to face the day in as good a mood as possible. You get to the gym, go to the sauna… and it’s being worked on. You can’t go in. it might be ready in a few hours, but that doesn’t do you any good. Instead of letting something like this make a mess of your day, there’s a better solution: a personal sauna.

Your Personal Sauna

The keyword of this heading is, of course, “your.” This sauna would be yours and no one else’s. That means that you’ll never have to worry about it going through “renovations” or “closed for repairs.” You can use it whenever you want. This also gets you around any hours that your gym, YMCA or another facility might have. You want to use the sauna at 3 AM? Go for it. It’s yours. Six in the morning, midnight, after lunch – whenever you want to go in the sauna, you can go into your sauna. This is perfect for weekends, or when you might just need a “pick me up” in the middle of the day. Instead of having to plan your day around the sauna, you can incorporate a great trip to the sauna into your day seamlessly.

Your Sauna, Your Rules

If you’ve ever used a public sauna, then you know that it’s, well, public. That means that you don’t want to physically bump into the other people in the sauna. You might have to sit awkwardly through the middle of one of their conversation. Often, now people will play their own music loudly in the sauna, without exactly asking if the other folks there would like to hear the same music. However, with our saunas, you are in complete control. In fact, many of our sauna models allow you to plug in an mp3 player. So, you aren’t bound by the radio or anything like that. Want to listen to that rare song you found online? You can absolutely do it. Your sauna is your own, and whatever music helps you relax is yours to play.

Your Sauna, Your Temperature

Even a great trip to a public sauna can be ruined if it’s not at the right temperature for you. So many of us have gone to a public sauna, only to have to get the one seat closest to the door, which means that you can lose heat at any time, unexpectedly. Obviously, none of that will happen at your sauna. You can set the temperature to whatever you would like, giving you your best sauna experience. For more information about how you can get a sauna to suit your lifestyle, give us a call at (877) 595-3221.

What an Infrared Sauna Really Provides

The name infrared sauna can be a bit confusing at first. All it means is that the sauna uses infrared technology for heat. This tech offers quite a few health benefits that other heating options simply don’t. Here at Health Mate Sauna, we have our own patented infrared technology, called “Tecoloy.” We created it because we don’t want to settle for someone else’s work. Instead of mirroring someone else’s technology, we wanted to make our own that lived up to our own standards. After seeing what was out there, we created Tecoloy to be the very best on the market.

“Food Heat Lamps”

It might be a bit hard to believe, but that’s actually what many home saunas use for heat. Really. That’s the name: “food heat lamps.” As you might imagine, these are the same lamps that heat food when you go out to a store or restaurant. You are not a gas station hot dog, so you should not be heated by a food heat lamp. Moreover, as the name implies, these food heat lamps are hot. In fact, they can get as hot as 400 degrees. Your body doesn’t want to touch anything that’s 400 degrees. So, we make sure that our spas use infrared tech that provides you with plenty of heat while never getting that hot. The last thing anyone would ever want is to get into a spa and come out with second or third-degree burns.

How an Infrared Sauna Works

When you get into a sauna, you want to sweat. This provides a wealth of health benefits. You want to sweat, but you want to sweat the right way. We built our saunas to make you sweat as much as possible with as few negative side effects as possible. That’s why our saunas have such an extremely low amount of potentially harmful EMFs. On top of that, the Tecoloy tech in our saunas provides high-density heat that gets you sweating quickly. It does that not by producing the most heat, but by generating the right amount of microns.

Microns and the Body

Your body generates a range of waves anywhere between six to twenty microns. Our Tecoloy M series, by comparison, accomplishes 9.4 microns at both the mid and far-infrared regions. Without delving too deeply into the science of it, that means that your body will be able to sweat that much faster. You won’t have to sit in the sauna forever and ever, just to get a sweat going. From the moment you step into our sauna, you’ll feel that sweat start to build.

The Right Sauna the Right Way

So many of our customers tell us: “I want a sauna, but I’m not sure what sauna is right for me.” That’s perfectly understandable. You can go through our site and view our catalog. If you still aren’t sure, you can always give us a call at (877) 595-3221. We’ll be happy to help.

2 Person Sauna: The Best Place to Be

Of all the different kinds of saunas that we offer, one of the most popular is the 2 person sauna. It’s easy to see why: these saunas can improve your health and they can improve your life as well. A sauna for two people can be a unique bonding experience, it can be a great way to connect, all while getting in a number of health benefits, too. At Health Mate Saunas, we have several saunas available for two or more people.

2 Person Sauna: Relax and Catch Up

With our modern, busy, hectic schedules, not everyone has time to sit down at the dinner table together anymore. Sitting down with your beloved at the dinner table every night just isn’t something that happens all that much anymore. However, you still want to see them, to be able to talk about your day in a safe and welcoming environment. That’s exactly what our saunas can be. You can sit in them with the person you love and just relax. There’s no pressure. There’s literally nothing to worry about whatsoever. Imagine sitting by the person you love in a warm environment, letting the day’s worries literally evaporate all around you. That’s what these saunas can provide.

Big, but Not too Big

A sauna for two people might be larger than you think, but that doesn’t mean that it’s so big it’s in the way. These saunas are perfect for couples and growing families. You can put them in the corner of a room. You can put them in a basement. In fact, you can even put them outside in the yard. Our saunas can fit into the nooks and crannies of your life, literally. Instead of having to clear space for these saunas, they can fit very naturally into your home.

Sauna for Him, Sauna for Her

Many of our customers who are happiest with their saunas for two don’t even use it all that often with the other person. What they appreciate the most is how they can use their saunas whenever they want, regardless of whether it’s at the same time that their partner does. We can’t tell you how many couples we’ve had reach out to us and say how they loved that they could get into their sauna in the morning before work, while their beloved enjoys getting into the sauna just before bed. While our saunas for two are absolutely perfect for couples, they’re plenty cozy for one as well.

Great Saunas, Greater Connections

As busy as we all get, it can be difficult to find that time to just sit and talk to the person you care about most. Even if you do everything you can to stay in touch with them throughout the day, there’s nothing like talking to them face to face, person to person, in private. That’s just one more benefit of these saunas. To see everything that they can do for you, just give us a call at (877) 595-3221.

The Benefits of Good Health Saunas

When we say we offer good health saunas,” that has multiple definitions. Yes, it means that the saunas we offer are designed to provide your body with better health. Rather than the food heat plants (which many so-called “infrared spas” actually use), ours use genuine, infrared lights. These give you all of the health benefits you would want from a sauna without any potential of getting second-degree burns or anything like that. Additionally, there are specific health benefits that our saunas can provide. Everyone’s sauna experience is different, just as their bodies are different. But, our thousands of customers all across the world can tell you how their saunas have made them feel better.

Good Health Saunas for Relaxation

Relaxation is among the most common reasons that people put our saunas in their homes. You can kick back in one of our saunas and literally feel your pains and worries evaporate. Think of all of the lengths you go to to “de-stress” after work. Maybe you have a drink, maybe you eat something comforting, perhaps you do a puzzle, something like that – our saunas take your relaxation to a higher level. You can leave a sauna feeling refreshed, without any of the negative side effects associated with other methods of relaxation. After all, no one ever stepped out of a sauna saying: “geez, that didn’t do anything for my worries and concerns. I’m actually more anxious now.” A sauna is a way to cleanse yourself of the day, giving yourself an opportunity to start over tomorrow.


The worries and concerns of the day aren’t the only things you can get rid of when you’re in one of our saunas. Our patented Tecoloy heaters can cause you to sweat quite a bit very quickly. That can help you to flush out all of those toxins that may be sitting in your body. Most of us don’t realize the sheer, staggering number of metal, pesticides, and other harmful toxins that are just squatting in your body, causing damage. By sweating so much, sweating in the extreme (but safe) way that a Tecoloy heater can cause you to, you can flush out those toxins for good. We’re all looking for ways to live healthier, but even the most conscientious person might not be aware of everything they’ve taken in. Our saunas are a powerful detox method.

Weight Loss and More

We’re all busy. Everyone would like to fit in a workout, but with our schedules, that isn’t exactly feasible. Between our families, jobs, social lives and more, getting to the gym or going for a run as much as we would like can be difficult, if not flat-out impossible. Enter our saunas: they generate enough to heat that they can reasonably recreate the same cardiovascular effect as running. Better still, you’re sitting down the entire time. You can learn more about what our saunas can do for your body and your life when you give us a call at (877) 595-3221.

Infrared Sauna Side Effects: Improvement Inside and Out

When people think of infrared sauna side effects, it’s only natural that our mind immediately goes to the possibility of negative ones. This is why you might be surprised that there are no negative side effects to our infrared saunas. They were specifically designed to be as safe and dependable as possible. In fact, these saunas bolster your health, improving upon your quality of life along the way. We’ve collected some sauna benefits that our customers have told us about. Many of them told us that they were expecting certain benefits, only to be pleasantly surprised when they received others as well.

infrared sauna side effects

Infrared Sauna Side Effects: Improved Personal Appearance

When you go for a run or do some other kind of cardio, you sweat and you burn calories. Using our sauna amazingly compares favorably to running in terms of positive cardiovascular effect. Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. The American Medical Association published such results in its journal. See, in our sauna your body absorbs the infrared heat safely. As that’s happening, your core body temperature rises. Thus, you start sweating – but, importantly, you’re sweating away fat, not muscle. On top of that, our saunas have also helped many to reduce their cellulite, too. Beauty specialists across the world have found that a sauna can assist in fighting cellulite.  By providing more heat to the affected tissue, the heat in our saunas can clear it up in a faster manner.

Multiple Kinds of Pain Relief

Just because our sauna can be a substitute for running, that doesn’t mean you should stop working out. In fact, so many of our customers incorporate their sauna into their workout: either by stepping into it afterward or sometimes even working out with the sauna open. However, as you exercise or even just age, you may find that you develop more aches and pains, specifically in your muscles and joints. Saunas have been used essentially since their invention for pain relief. Our saunas take the next step forward, by using patented Tecoloy heating tech. This tech has been proven to relieve the pain associated with everything from sports injuries to fibromyalgia. Additionally, while chronic pain may never go away entirely, studies have shown that some patients have felt their pain levels drop precipitously through using our saunas.

Heat and Health

Instead of allowing for something like chronic pain to rule your life, our saunas give you the chance to take control. You can feel better when you want to, and the same goes for your immune system. Our saunas can help to make your immune system a bit stronger and more durable. Just as our saunas raise your core temperature like when you’re running, they can also raise your core temperature as when your body is fighting infections, microbes, bacteria, and other health threats. As everyone is so busy these days, we all need as much help as we can get warding off colds. The above are just a few of the benefits (or side effects) that an infrared sauna can provide.

The Appeal of Saunas and How They Can Help Us

If you have ever visited a resort hotel, a sports club, or even your local gym, you have heard of a sauna and you most likely spent a good while inside one of them. They have quite a lot of charm and appeal, particularly for something so simple. They’re just hot rooms made out of wood, what’s so special about them? Well, they actually have a storied history spanning thousands of years. That’s right, those rooms where strangers sit almost naked and sweat are as old as the common era. And the reasons behind their longevity are mostly rooted in health and well-being, which makes them all the more interesting phenomena.


The History of Saunas

Saunas were born out of the need to survive. They were originated in Finland (in fact, “sauna” is the only Finnish word in English dictionaries), where the winters are notoriously ruthless. The first saunas were literally holes dug on the ground, eventually becoming little wooden cottages, where people would live through the winter. Stones would be heated on fireplaces and then have water thrown on them to produce steam. This way, the perceivable room temperature would rise and keep the inhabitants warm. The Industrial Revolution brought metal wood stoves and chimneys to the sauna tradition, and hence the concept we have today of such places was born. When the Finns migrated to different parts of the world, they shared their sauna designs and traditions, expanding upon their popularity.

The Health Benefits of Saunas

The regular use of saunas has been connected to a decreased risk of sudden cardiac death, high blood pressure, inflammation in the blood, and cardiovascular disease in their users. There have even been connections to reduced risks of pneumonia and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as alleviation of the symptoms of the common cold. The relaxing and regulating effects of saunas have led to their increasing use in hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, as a means to aid in the patient’s muscular and joint pain or recovery. It is worth noting that the induced sweating caused by saunas can also help in detox processes, allowing for the body to rid itself from harmful toxins it might come into contact with.

Have a Sauna in Your Own Home

While the idea of having a personal sauna in your own might seem odd, it is actually a fairly common occurrence. In fact, almost every home in Finland has a sauna of their own! You may not be Finnish yourself, but you can have your very own sauna today too! No more having to share uncomfortable encounters in your local gym with semi-nude strangers. You can actually relax and enjoy all the benefits of a sauna from the comfort of your own home.

We at Health Mate have the ultimate sauna technology for you. With infrared technology, there is no need for the hassle of conventional saunas. With the added benefits of infrared thermal radiation (the same kind of heat the sun emits), these modern takes on saunas will provide a new source of relaxation, enjoyment, and betterment to your home.

Can Infrared Saunas Actually Help You Live a Healthier Life?

The health benefits of infrared saunas and general sauna therapy have long been discussed by the medical community, with a lot of studies carried out on the matter in the last few decades alone. A lot of the benefits of saunas and infrared sauna technology are still being researched and confirmed, but their recurring use in physiotherapy and hydrotherapy can help us draw a few conclusions of the many ways saunas can actually help you live a healthier life. These benefits can manifest in different ways and help specific aspects of your health. Today, we’ll discuss a few of those advantages.

Infrared Sauna

Pain Alleviation

As previously mentioned, saunas are a tool used consistently by physiotherapists for muscle relaxation and joint pain relief. Studies by Clinical Rheumatology concluded that there has been significant pain relief for those suffering chronic pain caused by arthritis. In fact, patients with such pain reported that their pain levels drop significantly after just one session of infrared sauna therapy. And that’s not to mention the soreness relief it brings naturally by means of muscle relaxation. Infrared sauna technology can help you avoid conventional painkillers and ease your pain by means of simple thermal radiation.

Cardiovascular Health

Infrared sauna technology has been specifically found to help high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and other similar cardiovascular problems. This is because the regular use of saunas allows for an increased circulation via the relaxation of the body and the reduction of significant stressors. Although more research has yet to be conducted in order to significantly link sauna use to a reduction of death from heart disease, related cardiovascular issues have been found to be decreased and reduced by consistent sauna use. Additionally, sauna use has been associated with enhanced heart function due to its lowering of heart pressure.

Stress Relief

Like previously mentioned, heat in saunas increases circulation and induces overall relaxation. Regular exposure to these can slowly but surely help with stress issues by committing the body to scheduled and focused rest sessions. Taking a moment for yourself every so often and allowing for beneficial relaxation technology can provide noticeable stress relief, particularly after making a fairly regular habit out of the practice.

Skin Benefits

Not only does infrared sauna therapy help with the detoxification of your skin by means of sweat, but it has also been found to help the body fight back against cellulite. The heat emitted by infrared saunas increases and accelerates toxin removal from the skin, allowing for anti-cellulite treatments to be sped up and aided by the therapeutic practice.
