THE PERFECT ADDITION TO ANY HOME
Ever dreamed of having a luxurious bath experience in your own home, on your own terms? Personal home saunas are the perfect self-care item for that downtime you seek. Reduce stress, detoxify your body, and improve your mental and physical health.
Traditional saunas are a great option for people who love steam and thrive in higher temperatures. Traditional saunas heat the air itself to induce sweating and provide many health benefits. Some people consider traditional saunas more fun than infrared because you can pour water over the heated sauna rocks to increase temperature and steam in the room.
WHY USE RED CEDAR?
Our saunas are made with the best red cedar wood which will quickly heat and maintain temperature for hours. After heating the sauna, the Red Cedar will emanate an ever so subtle scent of the forest. Not to mention, the beautiful wood contains natural resins and oils that will help resist stains, discoloration and help keep the sauna clean. It will be the perfect backyard escape for your home.

INFRARED VS TRADITIONAL
The first step in choosing your ideal sauna is to choose the type: traditional, or infrared? Both are great options and provide the same health benefits. The difference lies in the method of heating. Traditional saunas use an electric heater that heats the air, whereas infrared saunas use infrared panels that heat the body itself. Below are comparisons between the two types of sauna to help you find your perfect sauna!
What’s great about infrared saunas?
Infrared technology works similar to how the sun heats the body, but without harmful UV exposure. The effect is a body-penetrating heat that provides the same amount of sweating, loosening, and relaxation, but at a lower temperature than a traditional sauna.
Traditional saunas heat the air to increase temperature, whereas infrared saunas heat the body itself to raise internal temperature. With low humidity and a lower ambient temperature than traditional saunas--typically 124-140 degrees--infrared saunas appeal to people who wish to stay inside the sauna longer and who don’t care for steam.
The best part? Each ALEKO infrared sauna comes with an integrated stereo system.
What’s great about traditional saunas?
Traditional saunas are a great option for people who love steam and thrive in higher temperatures. Typically set at 150-185 degrees, electric saunas raise body temperature through external ambient heat to induce sweating and improve circulation, loosen the body, flush toxins, and create an environment suitable for deep relaxation.
Control the interior conditions of the sauna with the heated sauna rocks--using the wooden bucket and ladle provided with each sauna kit, pour water over the hot rocks to increase humidity and temperature. Pouring water over the rocks is both fun and functional--infuse the water with essential oils for aromatherapy, make the room more comfortable, moisten the nasal passages, and more.

The time and energy it takes to go to the gym or spa can deter even the best of us from accessing the amazing health benefits that saunas offer.
