The Short Version: HigherDOSE has harnessed the healing power of infrared technology to create an at-home spa experience like no other. The infrared sauna blanket wraps people in a warm embrace that reinforces the release of endorphins and purges the body of harmful toxins. Everyday life can be fraught with stress — particularly in the dating and relationship scene — so HigherDOSE provides a natural solution to help singles and couples look and feel their best at all times.

Dating and relationships can take a lot of mental and emotional energy. Some romantic experiences offer a euphoric high that lasts for weeks, but other times these experiences can be draining, difficult, or just plain toxic. It’s important to maintain good self-care through the ups and downs.

HigherDOSE is in business to effectively boost the body’s happy chemicals — dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins — and give singles and couples a natural way to re-energize themselves whenever life gets them down.

The HigherDOSE infrared sauna blanket provides a unique spa treatment that people can enjoy any time they need a pick-me-up. It can be an effective way to soothe predate jitters, or it can stimulate passion and intimacy for couples using the blanket together.

HigherDOSE empowers individuals and couples to indulge in spa treatments at home.

HigherDOSE is run by wellness enthusiasts and entrepreneurs who advocate for the healing power of infrared technology. Its mission is to reinforce good health by bringing spa-quality treatments into the consumer’s home. Couples who use its treatments regularly can improve their moods and strengthen their relationships one sweat session at a time.

As Co-Founder and Co-CEO of HigherDOSE, Lauren Berlingeri said she sees great potential in the infrared sauna blanket to provide a natural and affordable detoxifying treatment for consumers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“Plain and simply, HigherDOSE was born from a shared passion to spread our love of physical, spiritual, and mental wellness,” Lauren said. “We get really excited about all of the different ways the human body can be optimized to give people better overall health and a better overall mood.”

Relax & Detox by Bringing Spa Life Into Your Home

HigherDOSE started as the passion project of two women, and it has become a hot commodity in the wellness industry. The infrared sauna blanket capitalizes on the healing aspects of infrared heat and gives people the chance to relax and rejuvenate themselves during at-home sweat sessions.

Men and women of all ages can use HigherDOSE, but Lauren told us their biggest fans usually fall somewhere between 25 and 55 years old.

Relaxation is always close at hand thanks to HigherDOSE.

HigherDOSE consumers are interested in improving their moods and revitalizing their bodies. And they don’t need to book an appointment at a spa to do so. The sauna blanket offers an all-encompassing spa experience that’s ready to go at any time.

Some people use the blanket as a way to energize themselves in the morning, and others use it to wind down before bed. Some couples even use it together as a way to spark intimacy and attraction.

“Our blanket brings all of the magic of infrared together with our favorite detoxifying therapies like Crystal Therapy, Negative Ion Therapy, and Clay and Charcoal Layers,” Lauren said. “Now, you can up your DOSE of happy chemicals in the comforts of your own home.”

In addition to its sauna blanket, HigherDOSE has developed professional spa programs at partnering spa centers throughout New York City. Lauren said the sweat sessions are the big draw, but they also have lymphatic drainage treatments, celluma mask red light therapy, and concierge IV treatments.

HigherDOSE can offer a wellness solution for individuals battling fatigue and stress, and it can also be a restorative gift to a relationship partner or friend who is in need of a boost. The online store has e-gift cards available for its sauna blankets and spa sessions, so couples can embark on a healing experience together.

“HigherDOSE is a well-rounded experience — whether at home or in our spas — where people can feel really good in their skin from the inside out,” Lauren said.

A Wellness Startup Creates Innovative Health Solutions

HigherDOSE fosters a company culture where people aren’t afraid to sweat in the name of having fun and getting stuff done. The team works hard to spread the word about its unique spa treatments, and they frequently collaborate with other professionals in the space to further improve HigherDOSE products and services.

Lauren and her Co-Founder Katie Kaps have created a joyful and flexible work environment where team members are encouraged to try spa treatments and throw out new ideas.

Lauren Berlingeri and Katie Kaps use personal spa days as a way to research new wellness treatments.

“Everyone loves getting high naturally and is dedicated to spreading infrared to the masses,” Katie said. “Given that we’re a startup, all the players on our team wear a lot of hats and roll up their sleeves to get the job done.”

Lauren said HigherDOSE is constantly learning and iterating in the biohacking space. For them, a spa day is a research project. The team’s ultimate goal is to develop more at-home products that satisfy wellness enthusiasts like them.

In the coming weeks, HigherDOSE plans to release an infrared mat that will offer a combination of infrared heat and pulse electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology. The mat will send a low-level frequency through the body to expedite muscle recovery, cell regeneration, and improved immune support.

The HigherDOSE team is passionate about developing spa treatments that meet individual health needs, and they test every product and service themselves before offering it to consumers.

“As two women in the health and wellness startup space, it’s been incredibly empowering to prove the efficacy of the things we care about and discover new ways to innovate,” Katie said.

Singles & Couples Embrace the Restorative Powers

HigherDOSE has gotten rave reviews from many consumers who tried the sauna blanket and felt its healing technology for themselves. Hundreds of people have left positive reviews and said the sauna blanket changed the way they take care of themselves.

“This blanket has brought us so much relief,” Margaret said in a five-star review. “I am so happy with this purchase. Such a high-quality sauna blanket.”

Whether they’re dating or in a relationship, couples can use the HigherDOSE sauna blanket whenever they need a pick-me-up and don’t feel like leaving home.

The Higher DOSE infrared sauna blanket can foster relaxation while improving the body’s circulation and burning calories.

Samantha D. said she and her husband have become obsessed with using HigherDOSE sweat sessions to relax at home. “[We] use our blanket 2-3 times a week,” she said. “A nice addition to our nighttime routine.”

A spa enthusiast named Krissy decided to get the HigherDOSE sauna blanket for her husband because he missed going to his gym’s sauna during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Hands-down best alternative if you don’t have any access to real saunas,” Krissy said. “He uses it every day!”

Owen and Sophie have even integrated DOSE life into their dating routine. The couple goes on dates to HigherDOSE spas so they can get healthy and lift their spirits together. The New York Post photographed the couple during one of the spa dates, and now they get recognized by pedestrians as “the HigherDOSE couple.”

A HigherDOSE sauna can set the mood and turn up the heart for NYC couples, like Owen and Sophie, who want to try something new and enhance their relationship.

HigherDOSE Offers a Hot Product to Energize People

Dating someone new can provide an instant boost of endorphins, but those feel-good emotions can’t sustain themselves day in and day out. Singles and couples have to find ways to maintain their emotional and mental well-being without relying too heavily on someone else. And that’s where HigherDOSE comes in.

A sweat session with HigherDOSE can provide individuals a dose of happy chemicals and give them the energy to tackle the day. Its rejuvenating therapy can offer singles comfort and relaxation at the end of a long day, and it can also foster physical intimacy for couples who turn their snuggle sessions into sweat sessions.

“We don’t create or offer anything that we don’t already do ourselves in our own everyday lives,” Katie said. “As biohackers, we focus on creating products that incorporate powerful natural elements that can facilitate detoxification and engage your most energized self.”
