Why should you get a Home Sauna?

Home Saunas are becoming very much a trend these days. It's understandable, too, as the design and technological advancement continue to improve, installing one in your home today with simple DIY home sauna kits or portable saunas is much simpler. 

Benefits of Having a Home Sauna

Having a sauna at home makes it easier for you to unwind and relax without having to get in the car, drive to a spa or gym, and pay a premium to use that facility. Plus, with a home sauna, you don't have to worry about sharing that space with other people (critical during the COVID global pandemic); you'll have it all to yourself or only share it with the people who live with you.

Health Benefits of using a sauna regularly

Relieves pain

The sauna increases circulation helping reduce muscle soreness, improve joint movement, and ease arthritis pain.

Reduces stress levels

As the heat in a sauna improves circulation, it may also promote relaxation. This enhances the feeling of well-being.

Improves cardiovascular health

One study, conducted in Finland, followed 2,315 men ages 42 to 60 over the course of 20 years. Findings suggested that people who use a sauna may have a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.

Helps with Skin Problems

A dry sauna dries the skin during use. Some people with psoriasis find that their symptoms reduce while using a sauna, but those with atopic dermatitis may find that it worsens.

Helps with Asthma or respiratory diseases 

People with asthma may find relief from some symptoms because of their regular use of a sauna. A sauna may help open airways and loosen phlegm.

What type of Home Sauna should I buy?

Depending on your home specifications and where you plan to put your sauna, there are several options to choose from: 


With a Pre-cut Sauna or DIY Sauna Kit, you choose the size and style, and they provide everything required to complete the project. The pre-cut saunas ship with all necessary parts & pieces for the interior/exterior, including wood, door, heater, vents, lighting, wiring, and hardware.

Portable Saunas, also known as modular saunas, are free-standing units that require no framing. These are ideal for anyone who may not want a permanent installation. Having a portable sauna gives you the freedom to move the unit to a different area within any given space, whether indoors or outdoors.

Portable Saunas are easy to set up, typically require less maintenance, and quickly grow among sauna enthusiasts. If flexibility and ease of use are essential for you, this is an excellent option. Many of our customers choose modular saunas for their vacation homes, home gyms, or as an addition to outdoor features like a pool and patio area. One of the most significant benefits of portable saunas is their ease of setup. Since the design is modular, you're only required to assemble the pre-fabricated pieces. There is no framing required, no cutting, and no need to pour a concrete foundation. A portable sauna can be set up on your deck or patio for outdoor use or placed in any area with sufficient space inside your home.

Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don't heat the air around you. Instead, they use a safe and radiant wavelength of the infrared light spectrum to warm your body directly. These units operate at a lower temperature than typical saunas, which is generally between 150˚F and 180˚F. Supporters of infrared saunas say the light provides increased core heat penetration than warmed air, allowing you to experience a more intense sweat in a shorter amount of time without extreme heat levels.
