Barrel Saunas: Where Simple Heating Meets Cedar Beauty
Practicality immediately abounds When you step into the barrel of this loaded sauna. How can something so simple be so beautiful? It's hard to merge aesthetics with functionality. However, Northern Leisure has done that with barrel saunas that can house 4-8 people and still provide the least amount of heating area in any of our Canadian-made saunas. What does that mean for you? It's simple – literally – the smaller the heating area, the quicker your sauna will heat. And the faster it heats up, the sooner you will enjoy the benefits, just like a sauna in Finland. So now all you have to do is think of your hot coffee selection and choose between a small, medium or large barrel sauna and whether or not you want an eye-catching and practical porch on your entrance. No matter the length of your barrel, the beauty of external cedar will carry any landscape because of its unique shape. You can't help but notice a barrel sauna is unlike any other, more standard cedar sauna that you think of when your mind conjures up a pristine image of a sauna. The same holds for the premium kiln-dried Canadian Western red cedar inside a Northern Leisure barrel sauna. Once inside, you'll appreciate the craftsmanship of the all-inclusive features from the bench to the removable lay-in floor.
A List of Barrel Sauna Health Benefits
Barrel saunas can improve cardiovascular health. There are tons of studies and research, especially in Finland, where saunas have been popular for centuries, showing that people who use a sauna might be able to lower their risk of cardiovascular disease. The more weekly usage, the better the results. Concurrently, using a cedar sauna may also be associated with lower blood pressure and enhanced heart function because of the advantages provided to increased blood circulation. Barrel saunas can ease pain and reduce stress. With better circulation comes a reduction in muscle soreness, an improvement in joint movement and an easing of arthritis pain. Combined, that means more relaxation and overall well-being. Barrel saunas can also aid with some skin problems because a dry sauna dries the skin and reduces some types of psoriasis. Barrel saunas can also offer people with asthma some relief because sitting in outdoor saunas in particular is known to help open airways and loosen phlegm. You can reap many other benefits from enjoying a sauna in your backyard. If you have a specific question before purchasing a Canadian-made sauna from Canada's Northern Leisure, we recommend checking with your doctor for more precise health benefits as it pertains to you.
