The best saunas to have at home
The sauna is one of the best ways to purify body and mind and in recent times, after having seen them especially in gyms and beauty centers, there are many people who have considered the option of having it in private homes. There are those who rely on traditional ones or infrared ones, there are those who prefer to have it at home and those in the garden: multiple options for a treatment that has spread all over the world from Northern Europe.
The term sauna comes from a Finnish lemma which means “bathroom” and is one of the best methods to purify body and mind. The sauna was born in Finland and there are no certainties about the etymology which, probably, could originally be linked to the meaning of “winter home”. The sauna is a treatment originating from the Nordic people that takes place in a wooden cabin where heat is created, dry or humid depending on the case, which leads to sweating and the consequent elimination of fats and toxins. Exposure to such heat stimulates blood circulation, relaxes the muscles and strengthens the skin. Today saunas are widespread all over the world both in gyms and beauty centers and for some years there are those who have started to consider the option of having saunas in private homes.
The sauna works thanks to the progressive heating of stones placed on the heat source to make the air dry and you have to humidify it (a level of 10-20%) by throwing water on the stones. Essential oils can also be added to the water to create a more relaxing atmosphere and fully enjoy the principles of aromatherapy. In addition to this type of bathroom there is also the infrared one, where the wooden cabin is replaced by an infrared cabin, the temperatures are much lower (50-55 °) and the beneficial effects are achieved thanks to the increase in body temperature induced by the rays themselves.
