The Real Benefits of Owning a Sauna

What are the real benefits of owning a sauna? There are several great answers to this question. If you have never really used a sauna on a regular basis, you may not be familiar with the many benefits of heat bathing.

Maximum Comfort Pool & Spa is your local specialist on leisure and recreation. For over 40 years now, we’ve been helping the people of the Vail Valley with all of their at-home leisure needs. 

Custom-made pools, spas, and water features are just the beginning of what we provide for the fine families of the Central Rockies. Let’s look at how having a sauna at your Colorado home or vacation home can benefit you.

Benefits of Owning a Sauna

Saunas for Self Care

One of our high-quality Finnleo® Saunas is an indulgent refuge away from the noise and chaos of your busy life. The wonderful feeling of the heat creates a relaxing environment where you can let go of your worries. 

When you set aside regular time for yourself, your mood improves and your stress levels lower. 

As you search for ways to improve your health and wellness, you will find that a sauna is a popular method of self-care. 

Saunas for Aches and Pains

Regular sauna use can help alleviate your aches and pains.

The heat of the sauna not only relaxes your spirit but also your muscles. The intense heat helps to eliminate lactic acid buildup and other toxins which are commonly absorbed through daily life. 

This flushing of toxins combined with the heat of the sauna reduces muscle tension. When the tension releases, your muscles can relax. This helps to soothe your aches and pains and increase your flexibility and overall range of motion. 

Heat bathing also assists your muscles while they recover from moderate and intense exercise. As your body temperature rises and your blood circulation increases, your natural healing processes speed up and your aches and pains are soothed. 

Saunas for Heart and Brain Health

Your body’s response to the heat of a sauna can also have a positive effect on your overall heart health. Saunas notably help to reduce stress and improve blood flow. And a reduction in stress levels can decrease the risks of vascular diseases. 

Regular heat bathing can improve mental functions as well. With your stress lessened you are able to think more clearly, have less trouble concentrating, and improve your memory recall. In addition, studies show that sauna usage may help to lower the risk for both Dementia and Alzheimer’s. 

Saunas for Immunity

Your body needs to eliminate the pollutants it comes into contact with every day. A great way to get rid of these nasty pollutants naturally is by sweating in a sauna. 

In response to the temperature in the sauna, your skin temperature rises and heavy, deep sweating occurs. Your heart rate also rises in an attempt to keep your body cool. This can cause an increase in white blood cells which help to boost your immunity. 

Due to this boosted immunity, saunas can help defend against seasonal colds. While the heat from the sauna loosens congestion in your head and chest, the intense heat curbs the germs thereby lessening the length of your cold.

Saunas for Better Sleep and Skin

Saunas can help your skin feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

As your body and spirit relaxes in the heat of the Finnleo sauna, your mind can begin to unwind. When your mind unwinds, you can sleep more deeply and soundly. Research has shown that sauna use can result in a deeper, more restful sleep. A calming, evening sauna experience can aid a full night of restful, peaceful, deep beauty sleep.  

Saunas can also aid in beautifying the skin. The deep sweating that is caused by a sauna experience cleanses the skin and helps to replace dead skin cells. The sweating also rinses the epidermal and sweat ducts of bacteria thereby cleansing your pores. This keeps your skin softer looking and feeling refreshed.  

You can enhance your beauty regime, reduce your stress, and improve your overall wellness with a Finnleo Sauna.

Saunas for Couples

The health and wellness benefits associated with heat bathing are well documented. But saunas can also help to build a better, more meaningful relationship with your significant other. 

After a day of mountain biking the Haymaker Trail in Eagle together or zip lining the beautiful spring Colorado landscape, relax together in your personal Finnleo Sauna. 

Exercise together, recover together and unwind together.  

The bonding time a sauna can provide is crucial for any relationship. It allows you to step away from the stresses and mayhem of life and simply enjoy each other’s company in a quiet, peaceful environment. 

Every couple needs their own sauna in order to have a private getaway.  Time together in the sauna is time spent caring for each other physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Types of Saunas

You can choose from a traditional sauna, far infrared sauna, or an infra-sauna from Finnleo.

At Maximum Comfort Pool & Spa, we carry some of the finest saunas on the market. Finnleo has several types of saunas to choose from. 

We offer traditional saunas, infra-sauna, and far infrared sauna.

Saunas can be built indoors or outdoors and can be customized to meet your health and wellness needs. 

Traditional saunas heat the air around you. If you want extra steam, a traditional sauna has what you need. You can ladle water over the heated rocks for that exact effect you desire.

The Far-infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.

An infra-sauna from Finnleo is another option to consider if you and your significant other can’t decide between a traditional and infrared sauna. The infra-sauna provides the best of both worlds.

You can’t fully understand or appreciate the benefits of owning a sauna offers until you experience them for yourself.  The convenience of having your own Finnleo Sauna at home provides a sanctuary of rest and retreat for you and your love. Contact us at Maximum Comfort Pool & Spa to fulfill all of your desires and wishes to create your personalized oasis in Vail Valley and the Central Rockies.
