The idea behind infrared therapy is to heat your body directly with infrared heat. In a traditional sauna you are just sitting in a hot room, 190-220 degrees. In an infrared sauna, the heat is heating your body and less than 20% is heating the air. Heating your body’s core for ultimate therapeutic benefits.

The infrared heat raises your core body temperature and stimulates your lymphatic system, immune system and your cardiovascular system. You start sweating profusely. 

In addition to the infrared heat triggering a profuse sweat, the water in our body also resonate with far infrared heat which helps with the detoxification process.

With this in mind, you now understand why we stress the importance of both front and back wall heaters in an infrared sauna. If you do not have front heaters in your sauna, you will not raise your core body temperature as well and you will not receive as much of the desired effect. All of our Health Mate Sauna™ models have heaters both in the front and back utilizing our 360 degree heating technology. You won’t find a better heater on the market for profuse sweating like with our Tecoloy™ heaters.
