Saunas have many benefits, including muscle stimulation, relaxation, skin rejuvenation, and detoxification. Home saunas have the added benefit, however, of being convenient and personal.
Rather than having to go a gym or health club to enjoy the many benefits of sauna, a home sauna allows you to enjoy the benefits any time. If you are a runner, you can go for a run then hop into your very own sauna in your bathroom or back yard to relax and rejuvenate. If you have children and it is hard to get away, a home sauna can be enjoyed in the evenings when they're sleeping.
Of course, with convenience comes added benefits: you'll probably use the sauna more. Most researchers and sauna advocates say you should use a sauna at least two times a week for 30 minutes a session; if you have to travel to use the sauna, you're less likely to use it as often as you should.
With your own home sauna, you also don't have to worry about who else has used the sauna, germs, or abuse of the sauna. You can be assured that the only people using the sauna are those you allow, and that the sauna is in the best shape you allow it to be.
