Top 5 Things to Consider Before You Enjoy an Infrared Sauna


Are you planning to bring home an infrared sauna?

At Canada Wellness, we don’t blame you. The ownership and regular use of an infrared sauna can benefit your home and lifestyle in many incredible ways. Especially with many around the world spending more time at home than ever before, now is the time to invest in your home and revolutionize the way you spend your free time.

Before you make a lasting investment with an infrared sauna, here are five things that you should most definitely consider.

Understanding the Proper Guidelines of Using an Infrared Sauna

Since going outdoors to engage in recreational activities is risky for clients and service providers, people have to make do with relaxing at home. Thankfully, you can have an at-home sauna to satisfy your spa-based cravings.

Before you add an infrared sauna to your daily schedule, you should first take some time to research proper use and even speak with your doctor. This can help to ensure that you’re using the sauna in a way that is not only safe for you, but beneficial to your overall health.

As a rule of thumb, we suggest following these guidelines:

  • Keep sauna sessions to 10 minutes or less, especially as a beginner.
  • Hydrate before and after your sauna session.
  • Eat a healthy and well-balanced diet.
  • Inspect and clean your sauna on a weekly basis.
  • If you feel dizzy, nauseous or light headed, exit the sauna and rest.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Sauna

1. Is a Sauna Right for Your Health?

Most homeowners invest in a sauna to benefit their health. While the regular use of a sauna can be very beneficial for most, some may have an existing health condition that isn’t completely compatible with an infrared sauna. To ensure that this investment is right for you, we suggest first speaking with your doctor and taking time to conduct research from the experts.

2. Where Will it Be Installed?

Before purchasing your sauna, it’s important that you first determine where it will be installed. Most homeowners choose to install their sauna in a basement, bathroom or spare room. Our outdoor saunas are not regulated in Ontario, other locations may be suitable for an outdoor sauna installation.

3. Who Will Use the Sauna?

Is the sauna just for you and your significant other? Or will other members of the household be frequenting the sauna as well? How many people will be using the sauna and the frequency can impact which one you decide to buy. Be sure to make note of this and communicate to the sales expert who is assisting during your shopping experience.

Our team of sauna experts at Canada Wellness will gladly help you find the best sauna for your lifestyle.

4. Which Brand, Kind and Style of Sauna?

The brand, style and type of sauna that you choose will have a lasting impact on your overall experience. While it may be tempting to opt for a sauna at a lower price point, the money saved during the initial purchase can cost you down the road. Saunas from lesser-known brands are often built using cheaper materials that simply don’t last as long, not to mention that the technology, hardware and system within tend to offer the same sub-par experience.

An investment in an infrared sauna is an investment in you. Your home and lifestyle can all be transformed by the addition of the right sauna. By spending a little more and opting for a reputable and respected brand, you can move forward with confidence, knowing that this is an investment that’s built to last for many enjoyable years to come.

Different kinds of saunas are available, based on your needs, wants and personal preferences:

  • Wood-burning saunas
  • Electric saunas
  • Infrared saunas
  • Smoke saunas
  • Steam saunas
  • Shower-sauna combos
  • Portable steam saunas

5. Where Will You Purchase Your Sauna?

The store or dealership where you purchase your sauna is nearly as important as the brand you decide to invest in. A trusted and reputable dealership will have a team of experts who care about your needs more than making a sale. They are there to genuinely help you find the best sauna for your health, budget and home. Not only that, but they will also be there to guide and assist you long after the sale is complete. Whether you need help reviewing your warranty coverage or have a question during the installation process, you should be able to give your dealer a call.

To find a reputable dealer, we suggest conducting research online. Reviews and testimonials from real customers can be a true indication of what you can expect from a store or dealership.

In Conclusion…

A sauna is an excellent opener or closer to your day, regardless of how you want to use it. Before you can bask in the warmth of an infrared sauna, you need to ensure that you’re buying the right product that is compatible with your lifestyle.

For this reason, it’s very important that you conduct research to find the best sauna for you.
