My Honest Therasage Infrared Sauna Review 2023

Have you ever dreamed about having your own at home sauna? 

This blog post contains affiliate links. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Once I learned about the benefits of sauna and heat immersion – I made it a goal to save up for a sauna. As much as I love the look of the pretty built in cedar saunas that simply wasn’t an option due to price and space. 

Then I discovered the Therasage infrared sauna – a portable, affordable, infrared sauna with low EMFs. I immediately started saving and purchased my Therasage 360+ Infrared Sauna this past March and I’ve been enjoying the benefits ever since. 

This is my honest Therasage Infrared Sauna review- I hope it helps you discover if this sauna is right for you!

Therasage Sauna Benefits

Why invest in an infrared sauna in the first place? 

There are SO many potential health benefits from using a sauna often- especially an infrared sauna. 

  • Sauna mimics the effects of exercise by increasing temperature, immune cells, heart rate and insulin sensitivity. 
  • Sauna may improve heart health by increasing nitric oxide, blood flow, and reducing blood pressure.
  • Sauna may reduce the risk of infections like the flu or decrease the duration of the common cold. 
  • Sauna provides neuroprotection by increasing brain blood flow and decreasing inflammation. 

In addition, red light therapy also has many benefits and the Therasage 360 comes with two medical grade red light panels inside the sauna. 

  • Red light is beneficial for skin health and repair
  • Red light can boost collagen production 
  • Red light can reduce inflammation and aid in muscle recovery 
  • Red light can help with your bodies natural circadian rhythm and supports the endocrine system

How long does it take Therasage to heat up?

It only takes a few minutes for the Therasage sauna to heat up. You’ll start sweating pretty quick! You can adjust the time and temperature ranging from 10-120 minutes and 100-170 degrees. I recommend starting out small to build up a tolerance then increasing your time and temperature.

We keep our Therasage sauna in our guest bedroom and fold it up and store it when we have company and want it out of the way.

Why would you choose Therasage over other at-home options? 

I chose Therasage for several reasons. These were my main selling points!

  • Portable and doesn’t take up a ton of room. 
  • Made of non-toxic bamboo materials – No VOCs or off-gassing.
  • Advanced EMF remediation.
  • Bamboo grounding mat to get grounding benefits even when I can’t go outside.
  • Easy to take care of and clean. 
  • Red light panels for extra health benefits (these alone can be incredibly expensive). 
  • Affordable price point for everything you’re getting. 
  • Bamboo chair – I can sit on the chair or sit inside like a tent. 

Is it worth buying an infrared sauna?

In my humble opinion – YES! If you can make it part of your weekly habits and use it often it’s absolutely worth investing in. If you are wanting to help assist your body in healing and support it’s natural detox systems- it’s definitely a fantastic tool for that.

Did I take several months to save up for the Therasage? Yep. Do I use it often and notice any benefits? Absolutely!

When I use my Therasage consistently I notice clearer, healthier skin, I sleep better, better muscle recovery, and I have fewer PMS symptoms. I especially appreciate it during the colder months when there’s less natural light and I don’t have the opportunity to be outside barefoot. 

Personally I feel that Therasage offers a fantastic option for at home use for a very fair price point. Red light panels alone can run anywhere from $200-$400 – and you’re getting TWO of them in addition to everything else!

    Hi, Amy. Thanks for your review. Can you tell me the cons of this sauna? I am looking also to buy portable. You make a good case but would like to know the drawbacks. Was the chair comfortable? Did it work as advertised?

    • Amy

      Sure thing. The chair is okay-more comfortable if you put a towel on it (which would be smart since you’ll get sweaty) but to be honest I rarely use it! I mostly just sit in the sauna like a little tent. It can start to get a little uncomfortable if you don’t like sitting on the ground in a small space for longer than 30-40 minutes. I’m 5’7 and can just barley stretch my legs out inside. If you’re shorter you might find it more comfortable. I’ve had it for almost a year and it’s worked exactly as advertised. I’ve had no issues there. Like any sauna you’ll need to take time now and then to wipe it down and keep it clean. I’ve had some people say they worry about mold (not just with this sauna but any at home sauna) but I think if you wipe it down after each use (or at least after you’ve gotten really sweaty) and let it air out (just leave it open) it should be fine. I also live in a very dry climate so i’m not worried about that. It’s been easy to fold up and move out of the guest room when we need to move it. I really don’t have many complaints! Let me know if I can answer any other questions 🙂

      I don’t have a 20% off code this month (they only do that now and then for special sales- the last sale ended in February) but my code FITANDWELL will get you 10% off!

    Hi, It looks like this review was done 1 year ago, just wondering how your sauna has held up for the last year? Any problems or concerns with it? I would also love to hear how often you sauna and any tips or tricks for pre/post sauna routine that would be beneficial? I am currently in the market for a sauna and would like to know if this portable sauna is worth it one year after the initial review? Thanks!

    • Amy

      Hi! I’ve had it for over a year now (I used it for several months before writing the review) and it’s held up perfectly. Everything still works great and we’ve moved it around and it’s been used quite a bit. I use it several times a week during the winter months and maybe once a month during the summer. Pre sauna tips: make sure you are hydrated and have food in you and try some dry brushing to get your detox pathways open. Sometimes I dry brush while im in the sauna. Post: re-hydrate and rinse off any sweat in the shower asap. I love using the red light panels for help with healing when i’m sick or have a cold sore. Overall still very happy with my sauna 🙂

      • Char

        Hello! I just purchased the sauna and I can’t wait to get it!! I’m curious what dry brush you use? Also, the red light panels are removable and can be used standalone, correct? How big are they? I get frequent cold cores and would’ve never thought to use red light therapy to help them heal quicker. Thanks!!

        • Amy

          Hope you love it! I just got a dry brush from Amazon, nothing too fancy. The panels can be removed and used as standalone but I believe you’ll need an adaptor that you can get from Therasage. If I just want the red light benefits i’ll either just sit just outside the sauna and use a panel or i’ll sit inside the sauna on the lowest heat setting.

  • Rebeca

    Hi Amy, I am 73-yrs-old and with a height of 5’, I am worried about my head reaching out of the tent. I know the chair is not comfortable, but I can pad it with towels. Also, does this company offer good customer service? I need to detox due to MTHFR, Hashimoto’s and heavy metals over the years. Does the white vs. the black color offer any advantage or disadvantage? Thanks. I need to order now during Black Friday 20% off price. I am considering the 360 plus model.

    • Amy

      Hi Rebeca, I don’t think you’ll have too much of an issue especially if you add some cushion/padding to the chair or swap it out for something a bit taller. You could adjust the front zipper to not come up as high if needed and if it’s accessible or comfortable you can also sit completely inside without the chair which I do often. I’ve had great success with customer service being very responsive. There’s no advantage between colors- just personal preference! Best of luck to you and your healing journey!

    • Amy

      My 20% off code only works for certain sales during the year (like black friday) but you can use code FITANDWELL anytime for a slightly smaller discount!

      I don’t deliver anything, this is just my review of the product. But Therasage does ship internationally. You can calculate shipping costs on their website and you can use code FITANDWELL for a discount 🙂

  • Mary Haller

    I’m ready to order one right now. Is there a current discount code? Wondering if it could help my husband with Parkinson’s disease?
    Thanks so much!

    • Amy

      You can use code FITANDWELL for a discount. I’m not aware of any research on the effect of sauna on Parkinson’s, but it’s worth looking into!

    Hi Amy
    I purchased the therasage on the recommendation of Dr Myers (Heavy docuseries) and used it for the first time yesterday. Just to say, I read the pdf that came with my order, and the instructions are to NOT shower for 15-30 minutes after using the sauna. I can’t remember the reason for this instruction, but I do remember very clearly, as it was my first instinct to shower immediately, but had to do other things for the 30 minutes, before showering:)

    • Amy

      Good to know! I always heard from reputable sources it was best to wash the sweat off as soon as you could, but maybe I should look into it further. Thanks for sharing 🙂
