High Tech Health Infrared Sauna Review

Update – the real High Tech Health sauna review, complete with live EMF testing is available in the video above. Disregard the old stuff below, where I was trying to test out an older High Tech Health at a local spa. I ended up buying A High Tech Health Transcend TR-2 for thousands of dollars. Hope you guys enjoy!

The Transcend TR2 tested beautifully for EMF’s, with low emf all around which is what I love to see. As you’ll see below, it made the Certified Sauna list, which is something pretty hard to do. (most sauna companies fail)

The High Tech Health has low magnetic fields, electric fields, low rf radiation, and low body voltage. If you’re looking for the best ceramic sauna that still has super low EMF’s safe for children, ill folks, or the EHS sensitive, this is it.

Don’t be fooled by the imitators only showing you low magnetic fields, and then passing off their sauna as “low emf” to the public. Meanwhile, it has sky high electric fields and body voltage! Well not with High Tech Health, they do a great job with all three.

Think I’m blowing smoke up your ass and don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out all my infrared sauna reviews…  And make sure to check out the list of saunas to AVOID AT ALL COSTS before you buy anything. It’ll save you tons of headache I went through!

Old stuff…

I’m super excited about this infrared sauna review from High Tech Health. There was a local spa here in the Central Florida area that had one, so I didn’t have to buy a unit just to test it out like the others. (for my other infrared sauna comparisons, check out the JNH Lifestyles review, Dynamic review, Sunlighten review, & Clearlight review…)  I love the idea of ceramic heaters with that penetrating far infrared healing potential, but without the super high emf’s like I’m finding in a lot of these saunas. I’m pumped that this might just be something unique, compared to all the carbon powered infrared saunas I’ve tried thus far.

Check back to this blog post, and I’ll embed the YouTube videos as soon as I get them uploaded!

My High Tech Health Sauna Review

Eeek, I made a mistake here.  I wasn’t aware that older High Tech Health models are NOT the same as the new generation that’s for sale. The spa here locally only had one that was several years old, and I didn’t know there were different models.

From what I can deduce, any opinion I have, and any testing isn’t really fair to produce if it’s been improved in the last 5 years. (this sauna was pretty old, and from the looks of it, definitely did not have these Triple Antifield Heaters shown at present. Again, my fault for not getting the exact model)

EMF Ratings

10+ mg at the heater, strong falloff rate though, lower body voltage than most carbon saunas. Electric fields reasonable, although I’d like to test this from a model you can actually buy today. (as stated many times, this model is Oooooold!)


$4 – $5k

Time To Sweat / Preheat Test

Couldn’t check, sauna is preheated for an hour before every customer session. This is also a 220 model, so it will be different than a residential 15 amp model most people are looking for. Not really helpful, I know..

    • Hi Kate,

      I’m about a month and a half to two months out on the HTH it’s looking like. I have 3 saunas on the list in front of them, and there was some nonsense going on on YouTube from a High Tech Health rep named Renee that kind of rubbed me the wrong way… so I don’t know if I’m going to buy one or not. (already spent $8k last week on two other saunas, so I’m cut off on purchasing for this month at least)

      However, they do have one here in Central Florida somewhere, even though that rep who was copying and pasting all over YouTube didn’t give me the location. I’m still going to find out where it’s located, and go try it out. From what I understand, it’s not one of the latest and greatest newer models, but it will still give me a good idea of what kind of heat their ceramic heaters deliver, which I’m very interested in.

      That said, after quite a few setbacks, this week I have the Therasauna, Radiant, and (hopefully!) Evolve 360 all being recorded at the same time. So long as this new shipment isn’t damaged too bad, we’re rocking and rolling starting tomorrow…

  1. Ok, thanks for the update. I know there’s one at Alchemy spa in Jupiter, FL, though that may be a little far from you. Thanks much for your efforts and reviews!

  2. Hi, have you had a chance to review the High Tech Health sauna yet? I’m interested in your review as I was thinking of purchasing one. I haven’t been able to find any reviews online. Thanks!

    • I have had a High Tech Health sauna for 8 years, and I have loved it. But, since I have never seen it even mentioned at all as one of the top rated ones, I wonder why they never get noticed in consumer ratings. I did a lot of research at the time, and they convinced me that they had really low EMF and the beast heaters etc, and were in cancer clinics around the country, but I have never really known for sure. They did neglect to replace a cosmetic part for me, and I was a bit disappointed about that. But, if you find out more about their product quality than I know, please let me know . I have enjoyed it for 8 years, but I would replace it in a heartbeat if I thought that it wasn’t delivering as well as some others out there.

  3. Hi Matt,

    I just tested one of the better sauna brands at a nearby spa with a TriField TF2 EMF meter. While the electromagnetic readings were below 2-3 mG across all the carbon panels (except for one 10mG hot spot), I was surprised to find electric field readings of 200-1000V/m!
    I stumbled upon the High Tech Health website and liked what I read about mitigating all 3 kinds of EMF. Any thoughts about that? Will you be posting a review anytime soon?


    • Hi Stuart,

      Yep most of them have some electric fields… normally people just don’t have a clue, because the Trifield 100xe that everyone buys can’t decipher well. Good for you for checking with a better meter!

      That said, generally electric fields are less worrisome than magnetic by most building biologists I’ve hired. However, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to get things as low as possible… I answered another persons question on youtube if you’re interested in learning how to eliminate electric fields with a grounded faraday cage grill. (you cannot shield magnetic fields in these saunas without affecting the heat)

      As far as the High Tech Health goes, unless they send me one, or a spa in Central Florida gets one I can pay to use, I doubt I’ll be pursuing it. Until I see a video with both magnetic and electric fields tested, I’m not really interested. (most ceramic saunas all have a magnetic field that is very very hard to get rid of)
      The idea of mitigating RF in a sauna with an infrared emitter, is about the funniest thing I’ve heard in my life related to saunas.

    • Hi Matt , enjoy your blog. I understand that PLH products (healthmate sauna) is the same as high-tech. Have you ever tested that sauna?

      • Hi Dan,

        I have not, but how about I give them a call and look into getting a demo unit? Several people have asked for it, so maybe it’s time to get some seat time in one.

        They seem quite different to me than a HTH at first glance… if you don’t mind me asking, can you explain a bit on how they’re similar so I can get a better idea of good questions to ask when I call in?


  4. Thanks for responding so fast! I own a store in Chicago area & looking for a good one. Of course my clients care about weight loss, I’m looking for same reason you are..the metals. I’m a Naturopath & I need to know which one would help the most people. Also, good stereo…lol. Your articles have been great btw! When are you going?

  5. Hi Mat, my parents gave me their HighTech Infrared Sauna, but they lost the instructions booklet, do you know where I can get a copy. I have a two person sauna. I am having problems with not turning off when the session completes and need to turn off at the powerpoint. I am not sure if there is something I did not plug in or something else

    if someone has a manual/instruction can they please email me a copy or direct me where I can get a copy. I tried to contact the company but they do not get back to me. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    • Hi Michele,

      This is Tristan from High Tech Health. That is great that you got your parents sauna! I am happy to send you the owners manual which will have instructions on set up. We can also help you trouble shoot if something is not plugged in correctly. These saunas are lasting for decades so we will be able to get you going.

      Please give me a call at 303-413-8500 ext. 811 or email at [email protected] and I will be happy to help.
