  • 4 Tips for Fitting a Sauna into Your Budget


    If you just returned from a day at the spa, you may be dreaming of having a sauna in your own home. While adding a sauna to your home or patio is not an inexpensive endeavor, there are ways to fit such an indulgence into your budget.

    If you play your cards right, you may be able to justify the cost of a sauna. After all, having a sauna in your very own home means fewer costly days at the local spa. Here are some tips you can use to fit a sauna into your budget and enjoy the luxury of heated steam and pore-cleaning moisture whenever you feel the urge.

    #1. Do the Prep Work Yourself
    If you are shopping for an outdoor sauna, you will need to prepare a suitable spot on your deck or patio or in your back yard. If you have unlimited funds to work with, you could hire a contractor to do the prep work for you, but if you are short on funds you can do a lot of that work yourself. From smoothing and grading the ground where the sauna will sit to taking down trees and bushes that need to removed, you can do a lot of the prep work on your own and save the cost of a contractor.

    You will probably still need professional help for the wiring and plumbing part of the project, but doing the other work yourself can greatly reduce your sauna installation budget.

    #2. Understand Your Needs
    Think about what you want from a sauna and why you are thinking about buying one. Are you primarily interested in the health benefits of a home sauna, including clearer skin and more relaxed muscles? Do you want a sauna to help you relax and unwind after a hard day at the office? Do you picture your family sitting around together and enjoying a nice steam?

    The answers to these questions will help you choose the best sauna for you and your family. Buying a sauna can be a life-changing experience, especially if you know exactly what you are looking for.

    #3. Stick to the Essentials
    It might be nice to have a high-tech stereo system piping music into your sauna room, but is it really necessary? It is important to look at your real needs and shop accordingly. You want to spend your money on the highest quality sauna. You can add your own stereo system and set of speakers.

    If you really want a home sauna but do not have a huge budget, just stick to the basics. Think about why you want the sauna in the first place - namely relaxation and good health. The best quality saunas provide the most compelling health benefits, and that is the most important thing to focus on.

    #4. Choose an Energy-Efficient Model
    The up-front cost of the sauna is one thing, and it is certainly the most visible thing. Even so, the expense does not go away when the sauna is installed in your home or on your patio.

    All saunas use some power, but some models use more than others. Choosing the most energy-efficient sauna you can afford will reduce the strain on your electric bill, and that could save you more money in the long run.

  • 5 Health Benefits of a Home Sauna

    In Home Sauna

    If you are thinking about adding a sauna to your bathroom, patio or back yard, you may be looking for reasons to take the plunge. A home sauna is no small investment, and buying one is not a decision to be made lightly. Even so, adding a sauna to your home has benefits that go far beyond mere relaxation.

    Regular use of a sauna can actually boost your health, and that could tip the scales in favor of getting one. Here are five powerful health benefits you can get from your home sauna.

    1. A Home Sauna Can Detoxify Your Body

    From the food we eat and the beverages we drink to the very air we breathe, dangerous toxins are all around us. They seep into the plastic in our drinking cups and tableware. They come up from the soil and get into the crops we eat and the meat on our dinner table. They get into the air from factory smokestacks and car exhausts. You may not be able to eliminate toxins from your environment, but a sauna may help remove the toxic buildup from your body.

    Commercial spas have been using saunas for body detoxification for years, and installing a home sauna means you can enjoy a cleansing detox whenever, and as often as you want.

    2. A Home Sauna Can Make Exercising Easier and More Effective

    You want to work out, and you have every intention of hitting the gym every day after work. After a couple of intense workouts, however, you find your body aching and it is all you can do to get out of bed and go to work.

    Those aching muscles can be enough to drive you from the gym, but ending each workout with a relaxing sauna steam can prevent those painful cramps and make exercising more comfortable. There is a reason so many gyms have saunas in their facilities, and a home sauna gives you all of those benefits without leaving the house.

    3. A Home Sauna Can Improve Your Skin

    You know how important it is to open your pores and deep clean your skin. Over time, makeup, dead skin and other debris can really build up on your face and body, and soap and water can only do so much. If you want to get your skin truly clean, you need a way to open up your pores and let them breathe.

    Steam is the perfect remedy for clogged pores, and a home sauna offers steam in abundance. Simply sitting in your home sauna for 15 or 20 minutes can leave your skin tingly and invigorated. You may even be able to cut back on that expensive face cream and enjoy regular sauna sessions instead!

    4. Regular Sauna Use Can Boost Your Circulation

    Nothing gets your blood pumping quite like spending time in your home sauna. Regular use of a home sauna is good for your circulation and may even help your heart.

    Using a sauna on a regular basis can lower your blood pressure and help you relax and unwind. That relaxation and blood pressure control can provide a myriad of health benefits, and can really aid regular users in letting go of the stresses of daily life.

    5. A Sauna Relaxes Your Body and Mind

    A home sauna is good for your body and your mind. Taking a steam in your home sauna can lower your stress level and help you relax when you would otherwise be obsessing over your work or home life.

    Regular use of a home sauna can also relax your mind and make it easier to fall asleep. Insomnia has reached epidemic proportions around the world, and getting a good night's sleep can be difficult. Relaxing in the sauna just before bedtime can relax your body and help you drift off to sleep and wake refreshed and ready to take on the day.
