Home Saunas and Your Health

Apr 15, 2008
More than ever, people are looking for ways to improve their health and as health-consciousness grows, so does the search for proven methods of alternative healing. Saunas fall into this category. They have been utilized for a long time by many cultures and anyone who has experienced a sauna knows the value of dry heat for relaxation and health.

Gyms are the most common location where people have used a sauna, but today folks are discovering the value of having a home sauna. Having a home sauna dispenses with the need for road travel to and from the gym (which helps on gas) as well as cutting out the ongoing fees of a sauna service at the local gym or spa.

There is a variety of saunas for you to pick from:

* Indoor or Outdoor * Sauna that holds Two Four or Many * Finnish * Infrared * Electric or Wood

If you are good with your hands and like to build things, then this may be the way to go with your home sauna. Home saunas are fairly easy to build and you can even get pre packaged saunas that are ready to be put together.

Having a home sauna, particularly an infrared sauna, is beyond measure in its value because:

* It helps lower your blood pressure * It helps your body to detox * It helps reduce pain * It helps relieve stress

You may not be familiar with an infrared sauna, but it is excellent for your health. As you sit in the sauna the heat goes deeply into your muscles, joints and tissues. It increases blood flow and oxygen flow, it promotes detoxification, which is important because of the increase in toxins in our environment and our bodies.

Because of its user-friendly nature, people naturally prefer to use far infrared saunas and will continue to do so on a regular basis. The infrared sauna produces much cooler air and at the same time provides the amount of warmth you desire. This makes it much easier to breath. The distinctive feeling of well-being reported by users as an after-effect, is a big draw as well. Infrared saunas may also be used with the door fully open if the only effect desired is infrared penetration or if a very cool, minimal-sweating experience is desired as a pre-activity warm-up while fully clothed. Due to this fact alone, more people are likely to use their saunas on a regular basis.

Other Home Sauna Info

* Using skin brushing and the infrared sauna together can help improve conditions such as psoriasis, exema, rough skin and acne. It also improves the cleansing process by helping the skin release toxins and it is beneficial for the elasticity and tone of the skin.

* The heaters are the center point of your sauna. If they goes bad they can be expensive to replace so the best thing to do is get a warranty that will cover the heaters for as long as you own the sauna.

* Because infrared saunas use less energy and operate at lower temperatures, they are best choice for a home sauna. Lower power bills equal happy purses.
