The sauna used within our gondolas is not a UV light / Infrared sauna; it is much more simplistic and can be tailored to anyone who becomes accustomed to it.

They are not registered as medical devices, according to the FDA. However, they still carry tremendous health benefits, enabling cardiovascular strength, which we need most as COVID-19 is a disease strictly focused around the lungs and cardiovascular system. Condensed high temperatures in small rooms can also increase blood flow and relieve muscle fatigue after a hard workout or training session; while staying hydrated, it begins to push out any toxins left within the body.

They are also a massive component for stress relieving; constantly feeling warm with slight constriction begins to ease the mind as all negative energy begins to leave the body.




Are you considering installing your sauna at home? We’ve listed seven reasons to stop thinking and start installing!

There are as many reasons to get your home sauna as there are sauna lovers out there. But if you’re still hesitating, you might want to consider that sauna...

… strengthens social bonds

Constantly online and with an ever-diminishing attention span, we’re often not as focused on our near and dear ones as we wish. The sauna offers a sanctuary where we can unwind and give each other our undivided attention. Are you having problems getting your teenager to look up from iPads and smartphones? Spending time together in the sauna offers an excellent tech pause, allowing for thoughtful communication and silent contemplation.

… reduces stress

The sauna's heat helps us relax and regulates the cortisol level in our blood. Cortisol is the hormone released when stressed, and too high levels of cortisol can lead to several health issues, such as problems with the immune system and sleeping. Sauna bathing reduces cortisol levels in our blood, and instead, it stimulates the production of serotonin. Serotonin is our “happy hormone” that makes us feel good.

… strengthens the immune system

A sauna has a proven positive effect on our immune system, and regular sauna bathing dramatically reduces the risk of catching common colds and the flu. The heat boosts blood circulation and stimulates the production of white blood cells, which in turn helps protect our bodies against viral and bacterial attacks.

… helps you lose weight

Did you know that a hot sauna can burn just as many calories as a run? The raised temperature stimulates sweating and a calorie burn in the same way as when the body temperature is raised through physical activity. Dr. Steve Faulkner at Longborough University is behind the discovery he made when he let participants in a study first take an hour-long hot sauna followed by biking for an hour. He found that when the sauna was combined with exercise, the combined effect was lower levels of blood sugar and more calories burned.

… helps you sleep better

The heat, the silence, and the solitude will help you relax, and research has shown that a sauna session can dramatically affect your sleeping patterns. By raising your body temperature in the sauna just before it is time to go to bed, your heated body will automatically work to readjust its temperature afterward. This cooling-down process and your body’s return to average temperatures after the sauna will lull you off to sleep, leaving you calm and relaxed enough to sleep soundly through the night. 

… rejuvenates the skin

Taking regular saunas, especially steamy ones, can truly transform the skin’s appearance. The high heat and the increased sweating and circulation stimulate collagen production and deeply cleanse and rejuvenate your skin. Don’t forget to rehydrate from the inside, drinking plenty of water and externally with a lovely moisturizing lotion. 

… protects the heart from diseases

Research has shown that regular sauna bathing may dramatically lower the risk of suffering from heart disease. A 20-year Finnish sauna medical study Laukkanen, Tanzania, the University of Eastern Finland, “Sauna Bathing and Mortality,” JAMA, Apr. 2015 revealed sauna bathing could have a dramatic positive impact on heart health. The study also showed the more frequently you sauna bathe, the stronger the positive effects on your health and your heart.
