Saunas and steam rooms have been used for more than 2000 years. They originated in Finland and were brought to the US almost 400 years ago. Saunas are self contained units. All saunas are inexpensive to operate and are low maintenance.
Traditional saunas create high heat and low humidity, which promotes deep cleansing through perspiration. It also relaxes muscles, relieves stress and provides a feeling of well being. Saunas promote healthy skin, increase blood circulation and pulse rate and also promote deep breathing.
Infrared Saunas are a relative new concept. They have the same benefits as traditional saunas, but transfer heat to the body by long wave infrared and not by hot air, so air temperatures are lower and the comfort level is better. Infrared saunas are also easier to add to an existing home.
