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.
