Reasons to Add a Sauna to Your Health and Fitness Regimen

Was losing weight or living a healthier lifestyle part of your new year’s resolution for 2018? Have you already abandoned your resolution this year? Don’t worry, we know a great way to revitalize and rejuvenate your health aspirations. And, it’s fun! It’s the sauna. For anyone who knows a thing or two about working out and living healthily, the idea of “detoxifying the body” isn’t anything new. Saunas offer help with detoxifying as well as a variety of other health benefits. And, as the experts in saunas for Mankato and the surrounding areas, we’d like to tell you all about them!


What is a sauna? A sauna describes a small room or building where dry or wet heat sessions are experienced. And, there are several varieties of saunas out there. We offer wood-burning and electric heaters and their controllers, steam generators, sauna and steam rooms, steam suites, infrared cabins as well as various types of sauna and steam accessories.

What are the benefits to owning a sauna? For one, saunas can help relax muscles and even relieve stress and offer pain relief. If you have a chronic issue that flares up, like arthritis or experience muscle stiffness, infrared saunas in particular have a way of targeting the places that are inflamed or aching to aid in faster recovery.

Also, stress relief. Saunas can help the body switch off the body’s “fight or flight” mode after a long stressful work day by coaxing it into a parasympathetic state. The heat from a sauna allows for the body to destress, rest, and heal. By sitting in a sauna for 15 to 20 minutes a day, you do more than just detox. Your body gets washed with relaxation, healing accelerates, growth hormone increases, and more.

There are so many benefits to installing a sauna in your home. Physically, nothing is more relaxing than a deep, healthy sweat. During a trip to the sauna, muscles unwind and tension fades. A few minutes a day is all it takes to look and feel better. So, don’t hesitate any longer! Give us a call or come into our showroom and see for yourself! We are ready and willing to tell you all about our incredible selection of saunas as well as the many unique benefits they can offer for you and your family.

Year-Round Exercise

Swim spas can provide the benefits of a hot tub as well as a swimming pool at the same time. They are not as large as traditional swimming pools, but are able to provide a way for a person to continuously swim against strong water. And, swimming is one of the best ways to exercise and burn calories without impact on joints. This makes swim spas perfect for sufferers of arthritis and similar conditions. Water allows you to do a variety of exercises that would otherwise be difficult or painful on land.

Swim spas are also great because of their ability to bring the freedom and enjoyment of open-water swimming into your home year round.


Swim spas can be designed to fit into any backyard, patio or recreational area and we have even delivered them indoors. Our Dynasty Swim Spas feature a wide selection of optional molded shells and attractive cabinets that enable you to install them in a custom deck or leave them as a free-standing unit above ground or in-ground.


Hydrotherapy can help manage specific health conditions to improve a person’s overall health and well-being. It relieves stress by creating a relaxing warm water experience for someone dealing with chronic pain. Fibromyalgia, arthritis and neuromuscular conditions are just some of the conditions that can benefit from swim spas. The warm water in a swim spa helps minimize both stiffness and stress, offers full body support and minimizes joint and muscle stress.

Anyone can benefit from swim spas by increasing their movements in the pool, becoming stronger and more stress-free. Even kids can enjoy the many benefits of a swim spa by becoming more confident in their swimming.
Swim spas are becoming very popular and one of many reasons is they can be used for a variety of purposes, including swimming, exercise, knee boarding, rehabilitation and relaxation. So give us a call today to learn more about swim spas and their many benefits!

Enjoying Your Hot Tubs and Spas this Winter

Old Man Winter has sure made himself at home here in Minnesota. And, you are likely looking for new ways to warm up and relax at home. At-home hot tubs and spas can provide a much-needed oasis from the chill of winter and stresses of the day. They immediately warm you up and relax you after a long cold day and help you and your muscles relax. There are many great benefits to owning hot tubs and spas in the Twin Cities, and the experts here at Minnesota hot tubs are here to tell you their many benefits as well as offer some tips for this winter.

Relaxation & Health

When you use a hot tub in winter, you could sweat out some of the toxins in your body. If you start to feel a head cold coming on, just have a good, long soak.
When your muscles and joints are cold, you’re more likely to pull or strain them during physical activity. Hydrotherapy from hot tubs and spas works well to help relax muscles and relieve aches for people who play outdoor sports or work long hours or commute in the cold.

Enjoy the fresh air. In freezing weather, a soak in hot tubs and spas allows you to spend time outside in warmth and comfort, instead of huddling indoors or shivering in the cold air.

Safety Tips

While enjoying the many benefits of hot tubs and spas in winter, it is also important to stay safe. How?

When you’re enjoying hot tubs and spas, make sure to spend no more than 20 minutes in your spa at a time. The longer you stay in your spa, the higher your body temperature climbs. While it may be tempting to linger in the comforting warmth of hot tubs and spas when the outside air is cold, try to limit your soak time.

Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water, and avoid alcohol. You can become dehydrated more quickly if you drink too much while in the hot tub.
Keep your spa around the same temperature so that your temperature is consistent, and make sure to perform routine maintenance and cleaning. After all, simple problems can become more complicated to fix in subzero weather.
