For thousands of years, cultures around the world have been using heat to improve their overall sense of health and well being. It comes as no surprise, then, that the demand for saunas in modern culture remains. So why should you make the decision to bring a personal sauna into your home? Below are a few things you should take into consideration. 

Infrared & Traditional Saunas

There are two types of saunas available on the market — infrared saunas and traditional saunas. Both are good choices, depending on what it is you’re looking for in a sauna. 

Infrared saunas are often referred to as “dry saunas,” as they do not produce steam. They are often a popular choice because of their lower price point.

Traditional saunas, however, are still a favorite because of their higher heat capacity (185 to 190 degrees compared to 120 to 150 degrees) and the relaxing “hypersteam” they create.

The Many Health & Wellness Benefits of Saunas

One thing is certain, whichever sauna you do choose, there are many health and wellness benefits you will enjoy. Saunas are often used after a long day at work or after a session at the gym because the heat relaxes the muscles and soothes away aches and pains. They also eliminate stress. 

Your experience in the sauna is designed to induce a deeper sleep, cleanse the skin, flush away toxins, all while improving cardiovascular performance. This happens because heat forces the blood vessels to dilate, which naturally increases cardiac output and boosts heart rates anywhere from 110 to 150 beats per minute.

The creation of heat and steam also promotes the production of white blood cells, which can keep colds and viruses at bay. Another added perk? The heat can help you burn calories. While sauna users should not expect substantial weight loss results, Dr. Ward Dean from the U.S. Army medical research team says that a moderately well-conditioned person can sweat off 500 grams while sitting in a sauna due to the increased cardiac activity it causes.
