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!
