Sauna Blanket vs PEMF Mat | What's the Difference?

Sauna Blanket vs PEMF Mat | What's the Difference?

"They both have infrared and you're lying down in both, so they must have the same benefits and effects, right?"

The long and short of it is a resounding no, but before we get into what makes them different, let's discuss what makes them similar.

Infrared Heat
Both our Infrared PEMF Mat and Infrared Sauna Blanket leverage the ultra-therapeutic combo of Infrared Heat, Crystal Therapy, and Negative Ion Therapy. Together, these three facets produce a balanced experience for a better mood and optimal wellbeing.

The core of HigherDOSE's mission is spreading the incredibly powerful benefits of infrared to the masses. Why? Because infrared may deeply penetrate the body to:

  • Stimulate natural healing functions
  • Relax the body
  • Boost the immune system
  • Increase circulation
  • Promote better sleep
  • Feel more energized
  • Release a DOSE of happy chemicals

Now, let's get into what makes them different.

Infrared Sauna Blanket
Get high.

If you're looking to feel immediately revived, energized, and totally detoxified, our Infrared Sauna Blanket is the ultimate tool to make you feel like you've just let go of anything excess. Unlike the heat from a dry sauna, infrared heats your body's core temperature at a lower level over a longer period of time, leading to a full-body sweat that'll make you feel alive.

Perfect for people with:

  • High inflammation
  • Heavy metal toxins
  • Acneic skin
  • Tight muscles
  • Poor circulation
  • Slow digestion

One sauna blanket session may help to expedite muscle recovery, improve digestion, detoxify the body, and give your skin that every juicy glow. Like a workout, our blanket works the lymphatic system to push heavy metal and environmental toxins out of the body, improving your body's resilience. With around 600 calories burned, an at-home sweat sesh is more of an intense experience that definitely requires set up and clean up.

Infrared PEMF Mat
Get grounded.

Unlike the Infrared Sauna Blanket, our professional-grade Infrared Mat utilizes PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) technology, which mimics vibrations found in nature to make your cells recharge, restore, and replenish.

Our Infrared Mat doesn't require any set up or clean up, just lying down. In the same way being in nature prompts an immediate parasympathetic response, you can expect to feel totally de-stressed and relaxed upon lying down on our mat, thanks to low-level frequency being pulsed throughout your body.  That's because PEMF and infrared work together to help increase oxygenation and circulation on a cellular level that help boost your immune system and stimulate your body's healing process.

Perfect for people with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Stress + anxiety
  • Poor sleep
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Poor circulation
  • A meditation/yoga practice

Our brand new mat has over 20 lbs of tourmaline and amethyst crystals that deliver the deepest DOSE of PEMF alongside Negative Ion therapy, that releases serotonin for a natural mood enhancement.

Still not sure what the main difference is? Imagine this: You can use the Infrared Mat any time. We have three different time settings, ranging from 4 hours to 12 hours, so that you can keep your mat on and hop on or off whenever you feel like you need a reset. Unlike the Sauna Blanket, our mat uses infrared heat as a relaxation mechanism vs. a way to break a sweat (that means you will not be breaking a sweat).

Do you already or are looking to start meditating? Our Infrared Mat is an optimal tool for deepening your meditation practice. If you're not one for mantras, the simple act of lying on the mat - even if just for ten minutes - assists in slowing your parasympathetic nervous system, giving your body a reboot without even trying.

How do I choose between them?

Here's the best news: You don't have to.

Our Infrared Sauna Blanket and Infrared PEMF Mat are an amazing complement to one another. For the days you want to erase the night before, week before, or minute before, our blanket is the go-to. But if you're in the mood for a more calming DOSE that's "at-the-ready," take a moment for some good vibrations with some PEMF.
