Saunas have long been recognized as a great way to relax and revitalize, but when combined with a spa experience, the benefits can be even greater. By following these 11 simple tips and tricks, you can take your sauna experience to the next level and turn your household sauna into a home spa that provides a truly relaxing and revitalizing experience.
1. MAKE IT AN EVENT
Make your sauna visits into memorable events to be enjoyed with family and friends, or as blissful moments of self-indulgence. Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, if only for a moment, and immerse yourself in relaxation, unwinding your body and mind while enjoying the peacefulness of the sauna atmosphere.
2. GET COZY WITH MUSIC AND LIGHTING
Create a tranquil atmosphere in your home sauna by adding soothing music and adjusting the lighting. Put on a calming playlist or try different light settings to enhance relaxation. Saunum’s Base climate devices feature stylish glass designs and LED lights in red, white, or blue, creating a cozy environment for an enjoyable experience.
3. TRY AROMATHERAPY SAUNA
The power of scent extends to your relaxation experience. Experiment with various oils by adding them to the water bucket in your sauna. But we’ve gone a step further with Saunum devices. With the aroma bowl, you can replace one of the salt balls and infuse your preferred oils into the steam. Simply add the oils to the bowl, activate the climate device, and let the aromas mingle. This method is not only healthier but also eliminates the need to burn oils on the heater stones.
4. ENRICH WITH SALT IONS
The salt sauna is a beloved feature in spas, known for its immune-boosting properties and skin exfoliation effects. With Saunum devices equipped with Himalayan salt balls, you can enjoy these same advantages in your home sauna. Immerse yourself in the soothing ambiance and reap the wellness benefits of salt therapy without leaving your doorstep.
5. ENJOY A HUMID, STEAM-RICH SAUNA
Indulge in a steam-rich sauna experience right in your own home! With Saunum’s device, open the vent, set the sauna to a comfortable lower temperature (45-60 °C/115-140 °F), and activate the climate device at its highest speed. For that authentic steam effect, make sure to generously pour water on the stones. Elevate your sauna sessions with Saunum’s innovative technology.
6. RELAX AT MILDER, LOWER TEMPERATURES
Saunas don’t have to be scorching to provide a tranquil experience; in fact, milder, lower temperatures can be equally relaxing. By adjusting the temperature to a comfortable level, you can prolong your sauna session and fully immerse yourself in moments of meditation or indulge in gentle yoga poses. Alternatively, simply lie down on the bench and relax.
7. TRY WHISKING FOR IMPROVED CIRCULATION
The primary purpose of whisking is to stimulate blood circulation and improve your mood and sleep quality. However, you don’t have to beat yourself or your sauna buddies to benefit from its effects. Go firm, but not too hard. Medium-strength touches work best, and whisks take longer to wear down, so you can use them more than once.
8. ACHIEVE EVEN TEMPERATURES AND BETTER STEAM
Saunum devices utilize innovative technology to create an ideal sauna atmosphere. By blending hot steam from the ceiling with cooler air from the floor, they ensure a balanced temperature throughout the sauna. This unique feature prevents excessive heat on the head and keeps the feet comfortably warm. The even temperature distribution allows for longer and more enjoyable sauna sessions, maximizing the health benefits.
9. EXPERIMENT WITH COLD IMMERSION
Cold immersion is a beneficial practice following a sauna session, as it supports the immune system and enhances blood circulation. You can achieve this by immersing yourself in cold water or lying in the snow for a refreshing experience. If the cold immersion is too intense, standing in cool air or taking a cold shower can also provide similar benefits.
10. CLEANSE WITH NATURAL FOODS AND SWEATING
To maximize the cleansing benefits of the sauna, it’s important to be mindful of what we consume. Stick to natural foods like fruits, freshwater, and herbal tea during sauna sessions, especially between steams. Sweating is our body’s natural way of detoxifying, and Saunum devices help create an ideal environment with regulated temperature and increased humidity. By throwing water on the stones and embracing the harmonious interplay of heat and moisture, you can enhance your sauna experience and promote a more intense detoxification process.
11. CONTROL AND CUSTOMIZE FOR ULTIMATE COMFORT
Recreate the delightful variety of sauna experiences found in spas within the comfort of your own home. With Saunum’s remote control heaters, such as the Saunum Leil control unit or Saunum Leil Mobile application, you can effortlessly heat your sauna anytime and anywhere. Enjoy the convenience of saving your favourite sauna settings as presets, ensuring the same level of comfort and relaxation as in professional spas.
