The Infrared Saunas to rule them all: Meet our New HealthMate Saunas - Your HealthMate Buyer's Guide

 

We are thrilled to announce that, in addition to our Finnish-style Red Cedar Saunas, we’re partnering with HealthMate to provide you with the best Red Cedar Infrared Saunas in the market. Like our more traditional Saunas, Infrareds deliver great health benefits with the advantage of a lower price point when compared to our Finnish-style models.

This guide will give you a better understanding of Infrared Saunas, as well as help you choose the HealthMate model that best suits your lifestyle and needs.

 

Why HealthMate?

 

At Divine Saunas, we are highly committed to quality. When searching for Infrared Sauna partners, we looked for a company that was reliable and had the highest standards in terms of quality materials. HealthMate checks all of those boxes! They have been manufacturing Infrared Saunas in the US since 1979, combining the longevity and sturdiness of the Red Cedar Wood with the latest technology.

HealthMate saunas are healthy and safe. They have a Low EMF (Electromagnetic Field) Certification (more on that later) and a 100% toxic-free construction, which means that you’ll experience the best that Infrared Saunas can offer.

These Infrared Saunas also have the PEFC™ Certificate, guaranteeing that the Red Cedar wood they use comes from sustainable sources. HealthMate saunas are easy to assemble, like our Traditional models, but unlike our Finnish-style outdoor saunas, they are ideal for indoor spaces.

 

Differences between Finnish Saunas and Infrared Saunas

 

There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding the health benefits of both Traditional and Infrared Saunas, and the opinions are very divided. Some might even wonder whether Infrared Saunas are real saunas.

Although Infrareds are relatively new, both saunas have scientifically proven health benefits. Those benefits may vary in intensity (you may need more use of an Infrared Sauna to get the same results a Traditional Sauna would bring), but they are mostly the same because their active “ingredient” is equal - heat.

If you wish to learn more about those differences, see our blog post all about Infrared Saunas vs. Traditional Saunas.

 

How do Infrared Saunas Work?

 

In Infrared Saunas, the heat radiates throughout your body and warms it up directly. In a traditional sauna, the heat comes from the heater air and its interaction with the humidity. You’ll feel the heat more evenly. HealthMate saunas also allow for ventilation and come with a ceiling vent so you can get a little fresh air while relaxing in your sauna.

Infrared Saunas are also easier to use overall. The installation process is pretty simple (even in city apartments), and the heat-up time is also shorter compared to a Traditional Sauna because they operate at lower temperatures. For that same reason, Infrareds use less electricity and waste less heat in your house/apartment.

This means that, if you’re a busy city person who doesn’t have that much time to do all of the Traditional Sauna rituals, you’ll still be able to enjoy a sauna bath with an Infrared.

Are Infrared Saunas Safe?

 

When it comes to Infrared Saunas, the biggest concern is the exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMF). Although the scientific field still didn’t reach common ground regarding the safety of exposure to EMF, the  International Commission On Non-ionizing Radiation Protection Agency defined the limit of exposure to Magnetic Fields as 100 at 50 Hz and Electric fields as 5000 at 50 Hz.

You’ll never experience those levels with HealthMate saunas. The heaters in those saunas have Ultra Low EMF emissions, hence guaranteeing your safety.

Now, let’s dive into our new HealthMate Infrared Sauna Models:

 

The Different HealthMate Sauna Models

 

We are introducing three different collections of HealthMate saunas: the Renew series, the Enrich series, and the Restore series. All of them have different size options and extra accessories to choose from.

 

1. Renew series

 

If you’re looking to get all of the essential features of Infrared Saunas at a more affordable price, the Renew series is ideal. It’s the introductory series to the HealthMate Infrared Saunas.

Some of its features include:

  • Touch sensor control;
  • LED lights
  • Flat bench;
  • Ergonomic backrest;
  • A mix of Carbon (TruInfra) and Tecoloy heaters;
  • Floor heaters;
  • Bluetooth Speakers;
  • Glass door;
  • Magazine holder.

This series come in sizes for one person (with 5 heaters in total), two (with 7 heaters), and three people (with 10 heaters!).

 

2. Enrich series

 

The Enrich series is a step up from the Renew and includes more functional and luxurious features, such as:

  • TruInfra and Tecoloy heaters; 
  • Reservation Mode; 
  • Exterior Lighting; 
  • 96 Diode Near-Infrared LED; 
  • Ergonomic Bench; 
  • Lower Back and Floor Heaters; 
  • Mirrored Privacy Glass; 
  • Patented Interior & Exterior Controllers; 
  • Magazine Holder; 
  • Interior Towel Bar; 
  • Bluetooth CD Player.

This model comes in three different sizes as well: for 2 people (with 8 heaters), 3 people (with 10 heaters), and the Corner edition (with 11 heaters), which is (as the name states) specially made to fit the corners of rooms. Also, it has less glass than the Renew collection, which decreases the heat reduction and infrared dissipation when compared to models with larger glass surfaces.

 

3. Restore series

 

The Restore series is our top-tier and comes in two luxurious models: the Restore Elevated Health and the Restore Therapy Lounge.

 

a. Restore Elevated Health

This unique bi-level sauna allows multiple people to enjoy the sauna simultaneously. With two rows of bench seating, the possibilities are endless. In the HealthMate Restore Elevated Health Infrared Sauna, two people can recline alone on each level of the benches or enjoy the sauna with the family. This sauna includes:

  • 96 Diode Near-Infrared LED;
  • Ergonomic Bench;
  • Low EMF Tecoloy™ Heaters;
  • Low EMF TruInfra™ Heaters;
  • Lower Back Heater;
  • Floor Heater;
  • Mirrored Privacy Glass;
  • Patented Interior & Exterior Controllers;
  • Magazine Holder;
  • Interior Shelf;
  • Interior Towel Bar;
  • Bluetooth CD Player.

b. Restore Therapy Lounge

The HealthMate Restore Therapy Lounge Sauna fits up to 4 people and includes an L-shaped bench with a lounge bench that allows for one person to lie down. It comes with 18 heaters, a mix of the Tecoloy™ and the TruInfra™ heaters. It features the same accessories as the Elevated Health Sauna:

  • 96 Diode Near-Infrared LED;
  • Ergonomic Bench;
  • Low EMF Tecoloy™ Heaters;
  • Low EMF TruInfra™ Heaters;
  • Lower Back Heater;
  • Floor Heater;
  • Mirrored Privacy Glass;
  • Patented Interior & Exterior Controllers;
  • Magazine Holder;
  • Interior Shelf;
  • Interior Towel Bar;
  • Bluetooth CD Player.

Health MateTM offers a range of luxury accessories including aromatherapy units and backrests for additional comfort.

Included within the price of each cabin is:

  • LED Colour Light Therapy System - the first of its kind in an infrared sauna
  • Bluetooth speaker system
  • Air vent to keep the oxygen flowing
  • Digital Light Touch Controls
  • Unique easy-click installation system (for pain-free relocation)

Warranty

 

One of the reasons why Divine Saunas decided to partner with Health Mate is their strict focus on quality. Health Mate saunas are built to last. With a 5-stage quality control of all of their products, Health Mate can offer much better warranties than the competitors.

The power supply and controller come with a 5-year warranty, and the same goes for the wood. Even after that, the wood is likely to last 30+ years when well cared for. The power supply and controller are commercial grade, well built, and safe. The warranty is topped by the Tecoloy™ heaters, that come with an unconditional lifetime warranty - no questions asked!

 

Final Thoughts

 

We are delighted to be partnering with HealthMate, and we hope this walk-through gave you a better understanding of the new incredible products we are introducing.
