Did you know that having a personal sauna in your home can bring countless amazing wellness benefits? You probably did- that’s why you’re here!
Home Saunas and Their Benefits
Home saunas are cost-effective and low maintenance, and promote weight loss, self-care, better sleep, mental clarity, skin detoxification, and allow for at-home privacy.
It’s now easier than ever to bring the benefits of a sauna into your own home and – with plug-and-play models, you can be toasty in no time!
The Featured Saunas
The main types of saunas we will look at in this post offer easy, portable, spacious, and opulent options for home spas.
These stunning, high-end saunas generally come as kits that can:
- be assembled by 1-2 people,
- are made from real wood,
- and use far infrared heating.
Infrared heating is a type of technology that heats objects directly without first having to heat the air in between. This makes it an efficient and cost-effective form of heating. It is also the same form of heat emitted from our bodies.
In addition to providing us with warmth, infrared heating at ideal temperatures (such as in a sauna) can also improve sleep quality and help with muscle recovery by decreasing fatigue and soreness.
These are not your traditional built-in saunas that require extensive construction work, electrical (usually), and plumbing work; and do not require permanent, structural changes to your home.
The featured saunas come in various shapes and sizes, with features such as Bluetooth and CD players, chromotherapy lighting, and temperature control. If electrical work is needed, it’s usually changing the receptacle from a 15 to a 20 amp circuit.
They typically feature wood paneling, glass doors, infrared heating, and higher-end features that are the ultimate luxury.
Sauna tents provide a convenient way to enjoy steam therapy at home, are quick to assemble, and require little space.
Sauna blankets are even smaller, more compact, and cost the least amount of money.
Whichever type you opt for, these 3 types of portable models offer the same great relaxation and wellness possibilities, compared to expensive, timely, built-in, inefficient, steam home saunas.

Get the Most out of Your Home Sauna Experience
To ensure that you get the most from your home sauna experience:
- take water in, and make sure you go in well-hydrated, the heat from a sauna helps speed up metabolism and increases blood circulation, so it’s important for your body to be well-hydrated.
- stay away from alcohol because its dehydrating effects will reverse any of the positive benefits of your spa experience.
- creating an atmosphere with the backdrop of relaxing music or an audiobook can heighten the senses and amplify relaxation.
- after a workout or physical activity, a sauna session can help reduce soreness and enhance recovery as well.
- when shopping online, be sure to consider size and space limitations before making a purchase.
- portable options are convenient if you are tight on space- but don’t skimp on features or quality.
- choosing the right kind of sauna will ensure that your new in-home spa experience is just what you need – stress relief, peacefulness, and relaxation!
- soft lights and light aromatherapy scents are suggested to set the mood and add a layer of comfort while in the experience.
- ALWAYS consult a physician to determine that a sauna is a safe choice for you.
- Saunas are not for children.
