    Are Health Mate Saunas Really the Best Infrared Sauna?

    By Tyler Pelletier April 17, 2020

    Bringing the Heat Safely: Health Mate's Tecoloy Sauna Heaters

    If you’re searching for a sauna fully engineered by the manufacturer from the inside out, Health Mate™ is your answer. USA Health and Wellness reviews Health Mate and gets to the bottom of the Health Mate Heaters. The renowned sauna brand, which introduced the first infrared sauna in the USA in 1979, uses its very own patented Tecoloy™ heater in every unit. Frankly, there is no other technology quite like it on the market.

    Here is our Health Mate review on the Health Mate Teceloy Heaters: Health Mate’s Tecoloy heater has been third-party tested and received a Low Electromagnetic Field (EMF) certification. Not to mention, it delivers heating benefits unparalleled by competitors. The manufacturer’s innovation has resulted in an extremely safe and highly effective sauna.

    Keep reading to learn more about the powerful effects of these sauna heaters and how they will safely help you see results fast.

    Unmatched Heating Benefits

    Enjoy a fully immersive sauna experience with the Tecoloy heaters’ 360 full circle heat. They are more effective than the leading carbon heater with up to 40% deeper penetration. And don’t worry about a wait around for things to heat up—your Health Mate sauna has the fastest to-temperature heat time.

    Faster Heat for a Faster Sweat

    Tecoloy heaters include the highest watt density in the industry and two infrared wavelengths. They are equipped to produce 99.5% emissivity.

    What is emissivity?
    It is the ability of a material to absorb and release energy in the form of infrared heat.

    In other words, the higher the emissivity, the faster you sweat it out!

    Bottom line: Tecoloy heaters produce much more beneficial infrared heat per square inch of heating surface.

    Enjoy the Benefits of Full Spectrum Heat

    Health Mate recently introduced the new Tecoloy M series heater, which is the only dual wave heater on the market that produces both mid- and far-infrared wavelengths utilizing high-density heat. The manufacturer then added a near-infrared LED panel on the sauna ceiling.

    Low-density heaters like carbon simply don’t deliver the same results. A hotter object contains more active molecules and therefore emits more infrared energy.

    To put it into perspective, the range of infrared waves generated by the human body is between 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range is between 7.5 and 15 microns, which is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule. Since our bodies are almost 70% water, this similarity makes sense.

    Tecoloy M heaters achieve both mid- and highly beneficial far-infrared at 9.4 microns. Far-infrared heat is important because of its role in helping our bodies keep us warm and repair tissue.

    As far as its near-infrared LED, Health Mate developed this state-of-the-art panel capable of producing between 600 and 900 nm. This technology is much safer and more effective than many brands offering full-spectrum infrared saunas. These low-quality brands typically use dangerous food heat lamps.

    Photobiomodulation (PBM), or light therapy as it’s more commonly known, is a safer and more effective way to deliver the benefits of red light therapy and near-infrared heat. There is a significant amount of clinical evidence supporting the benefits of both.

    Safe and Non-toxic Sauna Experience

    Another important factor to consider is the safety of your sauna purchase. Fortunately, every Health Mate infrared sauna is certified 100% non-toxic. Each heater also comes with a unique serial number.

    Health Mate has spent a significant amount of time and resources for their research and development team to create not only heaters that are low EMF, but even to ensure their controllers are low EMF.

    In October 2018, third-party testing and certification facility Vitatech Electromagnetics measured the frequencies of a Health Mate sauna. The ultra-low EMF results were found not only in the Tecoloy heaters, but also in the patented low EMF controller (when both off and on!) and in the sitting position with the sauna on.

    Because the manufacturer is so transparent and proud of its safe technology, Health Mate's EMF report is available for you to download for your own reference. In fact, the Tecoloy heaters are the only ones on the market that are both UL listed and have shown to produce ultra-low EMF and Extremely low-frequency field (ELF) levels.

    What to Avoid

    Most low-quality brands claiming to include full-spectrum heat use full-spectrum heat lamps or near-infrared heat lamps in their saunas, both of which are actually very dangerous.

    Many full-spectrum heaters create such high levels of heat that they can cause second- and third-degree burns if touched. This is not something that you want in your sauna! If the manufacturer has to stamp a heat caution on their heater, you’ll want to shop elsewhere.

    It may sound like a cheap and easy idea to purchase a few near-infrared heat lamps from the hardware store and hang out in front of them for a while. This could, however, be extremely dangerous. These lamps are intended to be placed in can lights in your bathroom or in industrial food warming devices—not mere inches from your body. These can also cause second- and third-degree burns and produce very high EMF levels.

    Health. Safety. Results.

    Health Mate’s trusted Tecoloy heaters will get you sweating quickly and thoroughly to help you elevate your health and wellness. The best part is these saunas will do this without risk of injury or illness, as proven by their very own published results!

    Awesome hot tub, great sound and bass!

    We ordered for our personal use in 2020, October I believe it was and just received it April 2021 due to the covid b/s. Tyler was excellent with communication and keeping us updated the entire time. Will buy from again when the need arises for our vrbo rentals. This company actually has customer service a rare find these days!

    Unequaled Performance

    I am pleased to provide an objective review of USA Health & Wellness, and of the Therasauna TS5753, a full spectrum infrared sauna I ordered from them on December 9, 2020 and received on January 14, 2021.

    Why USA Health & Wellness?

    I have been using saunas, etc. for six decades, first in Europe where I spent my teenage years, and then in the United States. I have owned a custom-built Finnish/traditional sauna, a steam bath, a hot tube, and now a full spectrum infrared sauna, and I have used all except infrared saunas in gyms, hotels, etc. Hence I did not approach my most recent purchase as a complete neophyte. Even so, I found the current market place to be rich in inflated claims, with each merchant touting his products as the best, often with unsupported claims. On the USA Health & Wellness site, Garen accurately describes the journey of trying to separate fact from fiction. It was clear that he had carefully navigated the maze I was attempting to navigate, and I determined to pursue that journey in earnest with USA Health & Wellness.

    My first call was made at the end of a weekend, in the evening, in early December. To my amazement, Tyler answered the phone and explored the options with me at length. I found it remarkable that he and Garen were always available and never rushed – in the evenings, on weekends, and even on Christmas and New Year's Day when I intended only to leave messages. I posed unusual, sometimes provoking questions, to which they always replied in a forthright, informative, and affirming manner. I'm embarrassed to say that more than 100 emails have been exchanged, with them always welcoming my inquiries and occasional apprehensions. I was treated like their most important customer, as if we had been friends in college. In contrast, questions sent by email to the manufacturer, especially those with technical content, typically have been ignored or treated dismissively. On those occasions when I have been able to reach someone in customer service by phone, the individuals have been consistently welcoming and eager to help. Hence, I do not recommend email communication with the manufacturer.

    During the selection and purchase process, I read everything I could find on saunas, investigating product, health, and benefit claims (including many unfounded claims by other vendors), reaching the conclusion that USA Health & Wellness had told it straight, right from the beginning. If they are guilty of anything, they are guilty of understatement (e.g. “I estimate 1 - 2 weeks (for delivery);” it arrived only three days later, and without any damage or blemishes.)

    Having never used an infrared sauna and not wanting to use a publicly available sauna during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was left to the literature and to Tyler's guidance. As an extensive user of traditional saunas, my initial leanings were toward a Finnish sauna. Selecting an infrared sauna from Therasauna has proved to be a better choice. It heats up more quickly, the interior heat distribution can be customized, and it draws substantially fewer watts.

    My already high confidence in USA Health & Wellness developed to a point where I was comfortable paying for the sauna by personal check (without the protection of a credit card). Tyler graciously reduced the purchase price to reflect the savings of the entire credit card fee. Tyler found other creative ways to reduce my costs without detracting in any way from the product or its quality.

    Why an Infrared Sauna from Therasauna?

    USA Health & Wellness offers a variety of saunas. As best I can tell, their assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of each product is accurate. Wanting a quality product with abundant room for one person and comfortable, symmetrical space for two, I selected the Theresauna TS5753. It is part of the only line of infrared saunas made entirely in the USA; along the way I have developed a healthy aversion for anything made even in part in China. Further, Therasauna has a reputation for taking exceptional pride in their workmanship. This visible surfaces are all nicely finished (the invisible, outside back wall less so).

    Recently I began working with a world-class sports medicine physician in Park City, where many Olympic athletes reside and train. During my early January visit with him, I asked him about the possible relevance of a sauna to my regular exercise regimen. He immediately endorsed the idea and proceeded to tell me about the categories (and sub-categories, and sub-sub-categories) of saunas, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, concluding with his endorsement of full spectrum infrared saunas, characterizing them as the saunas of the future, all while I listened politely. His endorsement further solidified my confidence in my choice and in the guidance Tyler had provided right from the start.

    How has My Sauna Performed?

    One week after my sauna was assembled and usable, I spent a morning ...

    American Spa Purchase

    Great spa for a great price. No sales tax or delivery fees so that made it worth it right there. Some one is in the spa daily now it is cold outside. I would recommend the spa and buying it from USA Health and Wellness. The biggest catch is they will only drop it off at the drive way. You will need to get it to the final spot.
