Hint: They’re like a 6-in-1 package. Improve your skin, sleep, mood, reduce muscle soreness, detoxify and burn calories at the same time!

If you’re into your wellness, chances are you’ve heard of an infrared sauna before.

You may have heard that regular use of infrared saunas comes with a wide range of benefits. Things like:

  • Sleeping better…
  • Improving our skin…
  • Staying in a good mood…
  • Recovering from exercise and helping with aches/pains…
With infrared saunas helping with so many issues at once, it’s no wonder they’re popular!

There’s just one issue. Not all of us can afford to pay $4,000 on an infrared sauna AND have space for one in our house!

That’s where infrared sauna blankets are changing the game.
One takes up an entire room.
The other can be used on your bed and costs a fraction of the price.

OK... So How Can An Infrared Sauna Blanket Help With So Many Different Things?

Let’s get into some science.

In short, infrared saunas emit a different type of heat to regular saunas.

The specific type of heat in a MiHIGH infrared sauna blanket is called FAR infrared heat, and this penetrates the skin way deeper than any other heat.

The deep penetration into the skin is the secret ingredient for why infrared saunas are so effective and popular.

Let’s explore how the infrared heat works its way into solving some very common issues we all face.

1 - Improving Sleep

Taking a sauna (and a cold shower/ice bath) before bed is one of the best natural sleep aids you can find.


Well - it’s no secret that sleep experts have long been recommending hot baths before bed to assist in drifting off into a peaceful sleep.

The reason this works is because of the rapid temperature drop once you leave your bath or sauna.

This sharp temperature drop tricks the body into producing more melatonin, which is our sleep hormone.

In addition to more of your natural sleep hormone, the heat soothes muscle aches and pains, and stimulates a tonne of feel-good chemicals in the brain - leaving you in a blissful state ready to get some sleep.
45 mins in an MiHIGH Infrared Sauna Blanket before bed = 😴😴😴

2 - Better Skin

We collectively spend billions on trying to fix our skin from the outside with skincare treatments - but what about fixing it from the inside?

When you step into an infrared sauna blanket, the infrared heat increases cellular activity and blood flow far better than other sources of heat - due to its deep penetration into the body.

This causes a detoxifying sweat, which is one of the top natural anti-aging remedies. The sweat removes dirt, debris and toxins that aren’t usually reached from your pores.

The result? Unclogged pores means less breakouts and a smoother, younger-looking complexion.

Increased blood flow to the skin also means more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. The skin depends on blood flow and nutrients to form collagen - which is responsible for keeping our skin firm.

Regular infrared sauna therapy can help to increase collagen production, improving skin tone and firmness.

So - if you’re looking for that extra edge with your skincare - 3 sessions a week in an infrared sauna blanket is just what you need.

Increase collagen production, clean out pores, and improve the quality of your skin - all without leaving your bed.

3 - Boost Your Mood

If you’re looking for a quick fix to snap you out of a bad mood, look no further than an infrared sauna.

In a series of studies, Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman had people with major depression use an infrared sauna.

In the first study, just one infrared sauna treatment reduced their symptoms by about 50%.

In his follow-up study, he found that a single session caused a rapid and powerful antidepressant effect, and the benefits continued for six weeks, which was unexpected.

He concluded that whole-body hyperthermia holds promise as a safe, rapid-acting, antidepressant treatment with a prolonged therapeutic benefit

Why are they so effective? In summary, its a couple of factors.

  • Your body releases a tonne of feel good chemicals, for example endorphins.
  • A relaxed mind and body equals better mood.
  • Infrared saunas allow for a meditative state.
  • Studies have shown infrared saunas to lower cortisol levels.

Feeling down? Take 30-45mins in an infrared sauna to flush your body with feel good endorphins.

4 - Help With Aches/Pains & Recovering From Exercise

Infrared sauna blankets are becoming more and more popular not only with elite athletes for their recovery, but with everyday people to help with aches/pains.

The deep penetration of the infrared heat really helps with muscle recovery as it causes a spike in blood circulation, which allows the body to recover muscles more effectively.

The heat found in infrared saunas also contributes to the reduction of lactic acids, allowing tight and depleted muscles to relax.

For those with joint pain, it works in a similar way. The relaxation of muscles that control your joint function coupled with the increased circulation to the joints enhances healing and repair.
Whether its to ease aches & pains or to recover from exercise, an infrared sauna can help.

5 - Burn Calories

Yes, if you want a bit of extra calorie burn, an infrared sauna blanket can do that too!

In order to increase circulation and blood flow during an infrared sauna, the body has to increase its metabolic rate. Increased metabolic rate means increased calories.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, a session in an infrared sauna was shown to burn up to 600 calories.

Now, that won’t be the case for everyone and every session, but because of the ability to increase blood flow, infrared saunas burn more calories than any other sauna.
Burn up to 600 calories - without leaving your bed.

6 - Detoxify The Body

We have the deep penetration of the infrared heat to thank for extra detoxification benefits, too.

Because infrared heat causes you to sweat from within, rather than just from heat like a regular sauna, you’re actually sweating out a lot more toxins than usual.

So much so that it's estimated that a normal sweat is 95-97% water, whereas a sweat in an infrared sauna is only 80-85% water!
Nothing generates a deeper sweat than an infrared sauna.

The Best Part? You Don’t Have To Spend Thousands To Get The Benefits Of An Infrared Sauna!

The MiHIGH Infrared Sauna Blanket uses the exact same heating technology as a regular infrared sauna, but in a portable, compact blanket format.

The end result is your very own portable infrared sauna that you can use at home on the go, for a fraction of the price.

It’s super simple to use:

  1. Get into some clothes you’re comfortable sweating in
  2. Wrap yourself up in the blanket
  3. Turn the blanket on with a handheld controller
  4. The infrared heat gets to work!
  5. Relax for 30-60minutes

Sometimes it works

I have been using this for a few weeks, and sometimes it gets really hot & sometimes it doesn't. It doesn't matter what temperature I set it on. I make sure the wires are all straight & the blanket is all straightened out, but it is just tempermental I guess.
