About Health Mate

About Health Mate


In 1979, Health Mate was the first to produce an infrared sauna. Health Mate’s history is rich with achievements and advancements, and they are truly the leading global brand in home devices. Every day, Health Mate utilizes the wealth of 40 years of experience to constantly innovate and offer infrared saunas of the highest quality. This is a brand built on ownership – Health Mate owns its own factory and sources its own wood, and it is the only brand with a UL listed heater.


Health Mate should be your first and last stop when shopping for an infrared sauna for your home.


The Benefits of Infrared Heat Therapy


Skip the pills and creams – Infrared heat therapy from Health Mate is all you need. One of the most compelling reasons to purchase a Health Mate sauna is the natural pain relief obtained with Health Mate’s patented TecoloyTM heating technology. With TecoloyTM, you will enjoy relief from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sports injuries and other chronic pain conditions.

A January 2009 study in Clinical Rheumatology showed that infrared saunas gave significant relief for patients with chronic pain, such as rheumatoid arthritis. A recent study published in Internal Medicine showed that patients with chronic pain saw their pain levels drop by nearly 70% after their first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores remained low throughout the observation period. Health Mate’s TecoloyTM heaters penetrate 1.5” to 2” to provide deep joint pain relief.

Your immune system is constantly fighting against an arsenal of toxins – pesticides, toxic metals, PCBs in plastics, environmental pollution and GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Combining this with a lifelong poor diet is a setup for accumulated toxins and a potentially weakened immune system.  Health Mate infrared saunas aid in detoxing your body and strengthening your immune system by using TecoloyTM heaters. Infrared saunas heat your body directly, which raises your core body temperature as your body absorbs the infrared heat. This boosts your cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems and helps your body detox.



According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, regular use of a sauna compares to the same cardiovascular effects from running. European Beauty Specialists confirm that a sauna will greatly speed any anti-cellulite program. Health Mate’s TecoloyTM heaters provide up to 10 times the level of heating to these tissues, which increases toxin removal from 3% to a whopping 15%, when compared to conventional saunas.

TECOLOYTM DUAL WAVE HEATERS: Simultaneous Mid & Far Infrared Light

No other heater compares.

Health Mate’s patented TecoloyTM heater delivers 360 degrees of dual wave heat with up to 40% deeper penetration than the leading carbon heater. Health Mate has the fastest temperature heat time. TecoloyTM is certified non-toxic and every heater comes with its own individual serial number.

Sweat Fast with TecoloyTM

The hotter an object is, the more active its molecules are, and the more infrared energy it emits.

TecoloyTM Mid & Far Infrared

Introducing the new TecoloyTM M series heater. Through many hours of R&D, Health Mate has created a heater capable of producing both mid and far infrared simultaneously.

TecoloyTM M Series is the only dual wave heater on the market that combines mid and far infrared utilizing high density heat. Don’t be fooled by low heat density heaters like carbon.

The hotter an object is, the more active its molecules are, and the more infrared energy it emits.

The range of waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7.5 and 15 micros which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. This similarity makes sense since our bodies are almost 70% water.

The TecoloyTM M Series are tuned to accomplish both mid and the more beneficial far infrared rays at 9.4 microns.



Say hello to the “Tree of Life.”

Proper sauna craftsmanship requires two critical elements: wood and heat. Taking these elements and implementing the standards of quality and innovation together, creates the ultimate combination for one’s health and wellness. Named the ‘Tree of Life’, cedar has long been known for its strength and vitality. Beyond its visible beauty, cedar naturally holds curative properties, making it one of the only woods known as a sustainable and renewable resource. Using 100% PEFC™ Western Red Cedar, Health Mate stands by their commitment to superior quality and wellness for all.


Grade “A” Western Red Cedar

There is no other company in the infrared sauna industry that’s involved in the lumber industry like Health Mate. Health Mate not only cares but is extremely specific in its selection process. All Health Mate infrared saunas are constructed with grade “A” cedar, NO. 2 clear.

Why Cedar? Western Red Canadian Cedar is the only wood that should be used in the manufacturing of a sauna box because it is naturally antimicrobial.

All other wood types sold in the infrared sauna industry are not naturally antimicrobial, and that is a huge problem for mold and mildew. This makes using woods that are not antimicrobial extremely unsafe and defeats the benefits of using an infrared sauna.


We only build with the best

There are many variables when purchasing and pricing lumber: grade, cut and source. The base cost of cedar is close to 40% higher than basswood and 53% higher than hemlock.


Glass VS Wood – Don’t be fooled by looks!

Sure, having a sauna with an all-glass front looks pretty. However, plan to lose roughly 40% in heat production and 30% of beneficial infrared waves. Plan on spending more money on electricity to run your infrared sauna coupled with being unable to place the sauna in a garage or outdoors where your ambient temperature is less than 70 degrees.

Health Mate wants you to gain the most out of your infrared sauna.

When it comes to designing and manufacturing infrared saunas, Health Mate has 40 successful years. Trust the world’s top selling infrared sauna manufacturer.

Don’t be fooled by looks, buy for health benefits.


“I heard that cedar is bad for me?”

This is completely false. Rod Stirling, Senior Scientist at FPInnovations explains Western red cedar does not contain the volatile oils cedrene and cedral. Adverse health effects are caused by airborne dust. Health Mate does not ship you a box full of Western Red Cedar dust.



There is absolutely no sauna on the market that competes with our full spectrum Enrich and Restore models. We’ve combined our patented Tecoloy™ heaters that produce both mid and far infrared with a state of the art near infrared LED panel.

LED Light therapy, or photobiomodulation (PBM), is safer, more effective and a smarter way to achieve the benefits of red LED light therapy and near infrared than using food lamps. The clinical evidence supporting the benefits of red and near infrared light is extensive.


Cytochrome C Oxidase (CCO) Activation by Red and NIR Light

Published studies show benefits from almost all wavelengths in the mid-600nm range to the low to mid 800nm range. That’s because these wavelengths have the greatest effect on the cellular respiration process.

In the graph above, at certain wavelengths, there are several peaks in the cytochrome c oxidase (CCO) absorption of photons. The highest of these peaks are in the ranges of 660-670 nm and 830-850 nm. These wavelengths have been proven to produce substantial improvements in cellular function, resulting in a wide range of health benefits.


Why Health Mate Passed on Food Lamps

  1. Extremely high EMFs

Every heat lamp Health Mate tested produced extremely high and unsafe EMF levels. Our TecoloyTM heaters produce less than 3mG. The Health Mate R&D team tested actual heaters being sold by competitors and the results were staggering, from 50mG to 180mG. This is 1,566% to 5,900% increase compared to our Tecoloy™.

  1. Benefits are not achievable with distance

For a food heat lamp to have the benefits most brands claim, your body has to be within 6-10 inches from the lamp. The location of these lamps are most often positioned on the front wall of the sauna. Much further than the recommended 6-10 inches, losing almost all health benefits. At this point it’s simply heating the ambient temperature of your sauna, not providing health benefits.

  1. Dangerously high heat

When a heater comes with a caution warning, we would recommend staying away. Some of these food heat lamps reach surface temperatures of over 400 degrees. You or your child could easily accidentally get 2nd or 3rd degree burns.
