This is my second Health Mate - bought first 22 years ago! The quality and performance of the Health Mate sauna is outstanding. It was an easy decision to stick with this brand. The new version has many pleasing upgrades. Highly recommend! Purchasing from My Sauna World was uncomplicated with seamless delivery.
Thank you so much, Kristy for the review. Your Health Mate sauna looks lovely. 22 years is amazing! Glad to know everything went well with your sauna purchase. We truly appreciate your recommendation. Please know that you can always reach out to us for any sauna questions you have in the near future. Enjoy your sauna!
The salt panel was a great addition to our Madison Sauna. It has excellent grain which is accented by the amazing color lights that glow through the panel. Also when you hit the rocks with a splash of water you can feel the heat bounce off the panel. Great addition if you are considering this option.
Thank you so much Richard for the review and for these beautiful photos. They truly look amazing! Enjoy your sauna and your Himalayan salt panel!
We had been looking at different saunas for a little while, so glad we decided to finally purchase. Everything was easy with My Sauna World, we called to ask a few questions prior to buying and they were helpful and informative.
My husband and I put the sauna together with ease. We had watched a few videos and busted it out easily on a Saturday morning, we were in the sauna that afternoon! If you are thinking about it- JUST DO IT! You will not be disappointed!
Thanks for the review Katie! Glad to know everything went well with your sauna assembly. It's been a pleasure working with you. If you ever need assistance in the near future of if you have questions about your sauna and your heater, please know that we'd be more than happy to help. Enjoy your sauna!
First of all the assembly was extremely simple! I literally needed my wife to help me for maybe 5 minutes at the most other than that I had it together in no time! Everything went together effortlessly and correctly. I did not have to “modify” anything! We got rid of our hot tub and switched to a sauna and could not be happier with our decision. We love it!!!
Hi Lance! We truly appreciate your review. Glad to know your sauna assembly went perfectly well. Your sauna looks amazing! Thanks for sharing a photo of it as well. Enjoy your sauna!
We’ve had the sauna about a month and I couldn’t be happier. Assembly took about 4-5 hours with two people and was pretty straight forward. We’ve been using it 4-5 times a week and with the 6kW heater it heats up in 20 minutes. It’s definitely a small sauna that fits a max of two but it’s perfect for my wife and I. I love the smell of the cedar. Overall a great investment in our physical and mental wellbeing.
Hi Jeremiah, thank you so much for the review. Glad to know everything went well with the sauna assembly. Enjoy your sauna sessions with your wife and you both stay healthy! Reach out to us anytime if you need assistance. Keep in touch! We truly appreciate this.
I ordered my sauna through MSW because they offered the same product. I could find elsewhere at a much better value. immediately, I messaged them through the website and they were highly responsive. They even threw in a discount code and free shipping along with extra items I’d have to pay for on other sites.
The heater upgrade was awesome, and we’ve been able to get it up to 170° so far. Still tinkering with it, hoping to get to 200 at some point.
Assembly was fairly straightforward, and I was able to complete the build in six hours by myself minus a little bit of help from my wife to hold the structure up as I installed the front and back panels. I’m in pretty good shape though, so I’d recommend to people for the whole job and give yourself more than a day if needed.
The instructions were fairly straightforward, though I was confused about a few of the steps, mostly around the heater, placement and sensor. Thankfully, I found the Facebook group where I was able to ask questions and work through it. Some of the instructions seems to be generic, and not specific to my build, so I’d recommend , watching some YouTube videos for your specific sauna to make sure you’re placing everything in the ideal position before screwing anything in. I ended up drilling a few holes in the back wall that I had to putty over and thankfully they’re not visible to the naked eye.
We had an issue with the first heater sent and the folks MSW were super helpful in getting us a functioning one.
The only reason I am rating the experience 4-star instead of 5 is because of the confusion in the instructions. Everything else was pretty much perfect.
Thank you so much for the review, Frank. Glad to know the assembly went smoothly. Your sauna looks great, thank you for sharing these photos with us.
We appreciate your feedback about the instructions. We'll reach out to Almost Heaven about this for consideration in the future, surely they'll appreciate it as much as we do.
You can always reach out to us anytime or our Facebook Group if you have any questions. Enjoy your sauna!
Great shower for the price. We got the clear cedar, which is beautiful. Our boards would have gone past the cross pieces so we opted to leave two boards off. Two of the boards were cracking and so we don’t have any leftovers in case any shower boards crack. I stained the shower with a protective oil and will hopefully do that every two years. The shower itself works great-we hooked it up to hot and cold water and use it after using the hot tub.
Thank you for the review Julie, we truly appreciate it. Your outdoor shower looks lovely! Glad to know everything went well with the assembly of your shower. Please know you can always reach out to us if there is anything we can do for you in the future. Enjoy your outdoor shower.
Thank you so much for the review Zachary, we appreciate it! We're happy everything went well with the assembly of your sauna. Please know that you can always reach out to us for any sauna questions or concerns that you may have in the near future. Enjoy your sauna!
I bought the Madison Sauna and couldn’t be any happier. I’ve grown up with Finnish saunas and this one fills the bill. Any question that I had about pricing/delivery/setup was answered within a day. Can’t thank you guys enough.
Thank you so much for the review and for sharing a photo of your sauna, Dana! We truly appreciate it. It has been a pleasure working with you and we are grateful for this opportunity. Feel free to reach out to us anytime if there's anything we can for you in the near future. Enjoy your sauna!

Love this sauna - looks great and loving this version with the window.
Mine maxes out at 150 with the 8kw heater / wish it would get slightly hotter but still a great experience.
Hi Andrew, thanks for the review and for sharing a photo of your sauna here. You have an amazing sauna site! Let's work on improving the temperature inside your sauna. I'll reach out to you in a separate email. Feel free to email us if you have any questions. Thanks for doing business with us. Enjoy your sauna!
This company is the only sauna company that allows you to customize and offer upgrades. The solid door with window was an exceptional upgrade. I also recommend the light bar for the back rest. I also upgraded to the 8 kW heater. It gets up to 170 degrees in 30 minutes. I recommend the flooring as well. It is nice to be elevated off the floor. I am 5’10” and I can lay down on the bench with my knees bent comfortably. I highly recommend this sauna, easy to set up and enjoy!
Hi Nick! Thank you so much for the review and for sharing photos of your sauna. It looks amazing! Your upgrade recommendations and your description of how you can comfortably lay on the bench of your sauna are really helpful to our future customers who are also interested in the Madison sauna. Your sauna door is lovely. Feel free to reach out to us anytime if there's anything we can be of help in the future. Enjoy your sauna!
I recently installed our newly purchased Auburn sauna unit. After using it each of the last two evenings, these are my thoughts:
1) Fine quality and craftsmanship;
2) While the Installation Instructions are very good, some familiarity with basic carpentry and an ability to think "out of the box" is helpful. I assembled the unit by myself including the electrical. It took me two, 4 to 5 hour days to fully complete and test.
3) With the upgraded 6K heater unit, the sauna heats up to 170 degrees F in about 25 - 30 minutes. This is due to the relatively small size of the unit and the size of the heater. This is a plus for us.
4) The finished product is beautiful and would compliment almost any space in which it is installed.
5) The Auburn is advertised as a "2 to 3" person unit. It would be very difficult to fit three (3) individuals in the Auburn comfortably. I suspected this might be the case, but we bought the unit for two (2) people to use regularly. Fitting three would require one individual to be too close to the heater for safety.
6) If the extra $1,200 or so is not an issue for you, I would purchase the WiFi temperature control unit. The analog (dial type) control on the heater works just fine, but is inconveniently located at the bottom of the heater and is not as finely tuned as a digital controller would be. If using the sauna at night, even with the LED lighting on, it is almost impossible to see the dials for adjustment. Placing the control dials on the upper front of the unit would be most helpful.
7) Customer support from both My Sauna World and Almost Heaven has been excellent.
Overall, definitely a good purchase and we are very pleased with the product. If money had not been an issue, I would have gone with the digital WiFi controller.

I received my Almost Heaven Pinnacle 4 person sauna with 8KW KIP heater yesterday. The delivery company (PITT Ohio) was prompt, courteous, and professional. The Sauna was simple to unbox and straight forward to assemble. Living in Michigan, I was a little worried the sauna might not get warm enough. This 8KW heater is a rockstar. I have to turn it down to around 50-60% to maintain a temp of nearly 170…which is about as much as my wife and I can handle for 20-30 minutes. We love the smell of the cedar and the size is perfect. While the Sauna can fit 4…we are not sure we want to share.
My Sauna World provided great customer service during the ordering process, follow up of delivery status, and in answering questions during installation.
We love our new sauna! Thank you.
Hi Justin! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us and for sharing a photo of your lovely sauna. We appreciate it and we are just so happy to know that everything went smoothly, from the delivery to the assembly and installation. Can't agree with you more on the Harvia 8.0KW KIP heater, it is simply the best!
We truly enjoyed working with you. Enjoy your sauna for many years! And if there is anything we can do for you in the future, please know that we are always here to assist you. Thank you for your business!
Our sauna arrived in perfect shape. In about an hour and 10 minutes my wife and I were able to put this together easily. We’ve used it twice and are absolutely in love with it. My wife says it’s her new addiction.
Hi Marque, this looks beautiful! Thank you for the review and for sharing a photo of your infrared sauna. Glad to know the assembly went smoothly. If there is anything we can help you with in the future, please feel free to contact us anytime. Enjoy your sauna!
I gave this Thermory barrel 52 sauna 4/5 stars. This is my experience.
What I liked about this sauna was that it was simple enough for my girlfriend and I to put this together ourselves. My girlfriend is good with instructions and is organized, but has very little handy man skills. I am a DIY’er trained by YouTube. We were able to complete assembling the unit in about 7-8 hours, without fighting.
All the pieces were present and no real issues with fitment. We were about 1/4 inch off at the end front to back. Not bad for such a project with many pieces.
What I didn’t like:
Some of the pieces were brittle, damaged in transport, or broke during installation. They supplied extra pieces in case of this. In addition to the roof tape, which was dried and cracked. This made it unusable and we had to buy something similar at Home Depot, to seal the top.
I am a satisfied that we got it done and it was not that hard for our skill level. The design is simple and nothing extravagant.
My concerns are durability and how it ages throughout the seasons here in central oregon. The cover for the roof does not look like it will last more than 2 seasons of sun and snow. Also how long will the wood itself last, before needing resurfacing or paint to cover.
Hi Andy, thank you so much for the review and for sharing with us a photo of your Thermory Barrel Sauna. We are glad to know you find it easy to put together and that the extra staves helped to replace the damaged ones due to shipping.
Your sauna is durable and will last for many years. Thermory Thermo-Spruce has a Class 1 Durability (as tested by an independent forest products laboratory) meaning it has a 25+ year resistance against decay - 2 to 3 times the life span of cedar. Thermory has been in the Thermo business for over 25 years, and in fact, they are the largest thermo modified in the world covering 50+ countries worldwide.
As for the rain jacket included in your barrel sauna, which is a really nice fitted tarp, like anything of its nature when used outside, it will degrade over time and need to be replaced. Most consumers have shingles or metal roofing added when the rain jacket needs to be replaced, something that aesthetically matches their home.
We value your feedback a lot and we sincerely appreciate it. Rest assured that we shared it with our supplier as well.
Kindly expect an email from us with our recommendations on how to keep the color of your barrel sauna as close as possible to its original look. Please know that you can always reach out to us for any concerns or questions about your barrel sauna. Thank you so much for doing business with us.
This was so easy to put together. I had it assembled in 20 minutes. Have been using it for a week and love it!
This looks great! Thank you so much Dave for the review and for sharing with us a photo of your sauna. You assembled it really fast. Happy to know you did the sauna assembly perfectly.! Please visit us again if there's anything we can do for you in the future. Enjoy your lovely sauna!
Came in 3 boxes and delivered by freight. I called the freight company and they were very easy to work with. They called when they got to town and they brought the boxes into the garage (it was below zero outside). The boxes were heavy but I opened and left them acclimate to inside. Took 2 of us to put it together and took about 2 hours. It is very pretty and exactly what I wanted. We have had it for about 2 weeks and use almost daily.
Hi Nancy! Thank you so much for the review and for sharing a photo of your sauna with us. Looks amazing, and very nice set up too!
