Cube Saunas: Because It's Hip to Be Square
Sweating has long been a therapeutic remedy for pain and illness. The Mayans enjoyed sweat houses thousands of years ago, and 1 in 3 Finns still use saunas in Finland to reduce stress, improve cardiovascular health and for overall relaxation. Since a square is a little easier to construct than a barrel or a full peaked roof structure, Cube Saunas were among the first, and they remain a hit today. The cube sauna shape expands on the traditional compact layout concept seen in many indoor saunas by stretching the box to allow more space. Bringing this concept outdoors, Northern Leisure saunas offer couples more room for an intimate experience in their cube or enough room for a small family. The cube design is trendy for urban and suburban homeowners with smaller lots and more compact yards. Cube saunas have stood the test of time, proving they are more than a trend. If you think it's still hip to be square, can you at least sit on the 2-foot porch of the larger model and remove your shoes/sandals/slippers before entering? If you choose the smaller cube, please wipe your feet before entering.
Cube Saunas and Other Sauna Styles Can Provide Aromatherapy
The Canadian Cedar used in our outdoor saunas is appealing for many reasons: visually, durably and smelly. Smelly? Yes, that's right. In addition to the vibrant aesthetics your new Northern Leisure Cube Sauna will bring to your backyard and your lifestyle, the scent of cedar also provides aromatherapy benefits. The smell of cedar is unmistakable and acts as a natural deodorizer for indoor environments, which makes it perfect for Cube Saunas. The Canadian cedar also has innate characteristics of repelling insects and preventing mildew. Without those two negative things to worry about, cerebral activity can improve as you relax your entire body. Saunas can bring out the best in all your senses, so it makes sense to smell the fresh, warm air inside your outdoor Cube Sauna. Relax and take a deep breath. The cedar aroma will work to enhance concentration, decrease hyperactivity and reduce stress, all things that are harmful to your well-being. So, while you will be concerned with the hot temperature and your dry heat experience, don't overlook what your nose tells you. It's saying that if you clear your mind and breathe in a tension-free manner, you will be able to smell the start of a great day or encourage the onset of a quality night's sleep.
