Infrared sauna benefits - 10 reasons to buy a home sauna

Posted on August 31, 2018

If you have ever tried a sauna you will know how amazing they are for relaxing and de- stressing, but there are also many other health benefits that come from regular use of an Infrared Sauna. We have listed the top ten reasons to own your own Sauna.


One of the greatest benefits of using an infrared sauna is that they can give you twenty or thirty minutes of solace within your busy, everyday life. When relaxing in an infrared sauna, the heat can balance your body’s cortisol levels. As your primary stress hormone, having balanced cortisol is crucial for relaxation. Also in the sauna, detoxification takes place. This effectively eliminates toxins in your body, and with the infrared heat stimulating your natural endorphins, you will feel relaxed and energised.

Home Spa

The great thing about the Health Mate® infrared sauna cabins is that you can have your own home Sauna. They can be put into your home in a Spare room or Garage. That means you can have a personalised experience. While you relax, you can listen to your favourite music, unwind to the calming light therapy, and let the infrared light penetrate your muscles and boost your energy levels. The Lounger Cabin Range can fit up to six people, which means that it is a perfect addition to an indoor gym, indoor poolside or converted basement where you can enjoy as a group.

Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas


Eliminating toxins from your body is vital for remaining healthy, and sweating is one of the best ways to do that. As compared to traditional Swedish saunas, Infrared saunas can help you eliminate almost seven times as many toxins. Health Mate® saunas can give you triple-action detoxification where fat cells are stimulated to release toxins, blood flow increases to carry toxins efficiently to the liver for processing, and sweating is promoted to expel toxins through the skin.

Weight Loss

A session in our Health Mate® Saunas can be the equivalent of fifteen to thirty minutes in the gym. During a session in a the sauna cabin, your body warms up gradually, you start to sweat and during this process, you lose fluids and toxins. While trying to cool itself down, the body has to use up energy to do so, meaning you burn calories, without effort and without getting tired. You can feel this as your heart rate rises slightly and your blood flow increases just like you were doing physical exercise.

Skin Rejuvenation

An Infrared Sauna can have great benefits for your skin. For example, impurities are flushed out, which reduces blemishes, the collagen and elastin are stimulated which improves your skin tone, evens out pigmentation, reduces wrinkles, scars, acne, chronic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. It can also stimulate fat cells to release toxins that makes cells lie flatter, leading to a reduction in cellulite.

Joint and Muscle Pain

Infrared saunas are a great way to relieve joint and muscle pain. This is achieved as infrared heat penetrates more deeply into the muscles, generating inner warmth and increasing the stimulation of endorphin production. People who have undergone regular infrared sauna treatment have found reduced levels of over all joint and muscle pain.

Ease Chronic conditions such as Arthritis and Fibromyalgia

Health Mate® infrared saunas can also help ease conditions such as Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. The infrared heat gives relief by using dry heat and by operating at much lower temperatures that conventional saunas. This makes them more relaxing and comfortable. Our infrared cabins use ‘far infrared’ light, which is generated and absorbed naturally and safely by most objects, including the human body. Far infrared has the ability to penetrate the skin and generate deep heat from within. In as little as ten minutes, some people have experienced relief and decreased pain from being in our saunas.

Relieve other Aches and Pains

Much like the effects our saunas can have on arthritis and fibromyalgia, the ‘far infrared’ light can also relieve other aches and pains. The light improves circulation, and has healing effects on joints, tendons and muscles. Infrared lamps have been used by physiotherapists for years to treat muscle and joint problems.

Sports Therapy

Far infrared saunas are used by athletes to warm up before training and to prevent or heal from sports injuries more quickly. In all the ways that have been looked at above, athletes and sportspeople can benefit greatly from infrared sauna usage. With energy boosts, easing of muscular and joint pain, increases in the immune system and help with weight loss, our saunas can be a great asset to anyone who partakes in any level of sport activity.
