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.
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.
