When I traveled around Asia, specifically in South Korea, one of the things that fascinated me were their saunas. I’ve never been inside one, even back home. I regularly went to the gym but I never tried going into the sauna. At this moment, I’m regretting the days that I never went because after trying it out when I was in Korea, it was eye-opening.
I’ve never felt more relaxed and carefree when I’m inside the sauna/steam room. It was such a pleasant experience that I decided then and there that when I get home, I’m gonna get one installed in my house asap.
That’s when I got exposed to the different types of saunas and all the research that I need to do if I plan on buying one. There are so many factors that I need to consider but ultimately, I decided on infrared due to various reasons which I will list below.
- My Budget
I knew that a home sauna kit will be expensive and I was prepared to whip out my wallet for it but I was surprised at how expensive they can be. I wanted a more “traditional” sauna experience but my budget just won’t allow it. I decided that an infrared sauna is my best bet because for one, it is one of the cheaper options without sacrificing quality and second, the 1 person models are priced just right for what I’m willing to spend.
- Benefits of Infrared Saunas
There are many benefits to an infrared sauna and with some research, I found that there are benefits that can only be enjoyed with infrared saunas. You can refer to choicesaunas for the complete list and details about these health benefits.
As for what I found to be important for me, there are a few such as weight loss, detoxification, enhancing the immune system and maintaining good skin. I won’t lie, I can be a vain person and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I just want to look the best as I can because I think this plays a huge role in how people see me and to maintain good relationships.
Buying an infrared sauna kit is very convenient. I can order online, have it delivered and assemble it myself or pay someone to assemble it for me. I chose to do it myself because I like these kinds of stuff, building, assembling and whatnot. Another reason why it’s convenient is because everything comes in one package. With other types of saunas, I had to order different parts from different manufacturers and that was a very time consuming endeavor. Not to mention, I had to do all the research so that everything is compatible with each other. After sticking with it for some time, I just gave up and decided to go with an all-in-one sauna kit to make things easier.
It also helps that all parts are under warranty from the same manufacturer so if anything goes wrong, my purchase is protected.
Well, those are my reasons why I went and got my own personal infrared sauna. It has been one of the best purchases in my life and I don’t regret anything about it, not even the price tag, which I admit, made a significant dent in my budget. However, with the convenience of taking a sauna bath anytime I want, I would say the it has been very much worth it.
