Enjoy Detoxification Sauna Benefits – Live Long, Live Well
Since ancient times, people have enjoyed unwinding in a cloud of steam, such as in the public baths of ancient Rome. Today, you can have that kind of luxury right in your home in a sauna! Because their technologies differ from that of hot tubs, having a sauna will maximize your family’s health benefits.
It is believed that the “deep sweating” experience of sauna and steam rooms can reduce the levels of toxins (lead, copper, zinc, nickel and mercury) commonly picked up from our environment and carried in our bodies.
Sauna Skin Benefits
Sweating also performs the function of cleansing your skin – rinsing bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of your pores improves the capillary circulation and gives your skin a soft, beautiful appearance.
Whether you’re seeking rejuvenated health, a social haven with friends, or simply a quiet place to be alone – you can enjoy the many restorative benefits of relaxing in a sauna. Those benefits include:
- Reduced stress
- Soothed aches and pains in muscles and joints
- Flushed toxins
- Cleansed skin
- Deeper sleep
- Improved cardiovascular performance
- Calories burned
- Immunity boosted
The Sundance® Spa Store carries the Helo line of traditional Finnish saunas, the oldest name in sauna beginning more than 80 years ago in Finland. Helo has become the world’s largest sauna maker through innovation and uncompromising commitment to quality. Helo quality is evident by the style and design using glass, curves and lighting. It continues with the highest grade hand-selected woods from Scandinavia to the Pacific Northwest. All Helo saunas are matched with sleek, contemporary heaters and controls.
Helo saunas come in the following categories:
- Prestige Saunas
- Panel-Built Saunas
- Passport Saunas
- Outdoor Patio Saunas
- Custom Cut Saunas
As an example of one of the Helo Prestige saunas, the Onyx was designed to take advantage of Helo's popular 'new' Deco Designs and the open feel of a 'full-glass' front wall. This sauna uses a frameless all-Glass door and two full glass fixed side panels for an inviting and luxurious look. Best of all the Onyx is among our most affordable Prestige saunas, and it includes luxurious upgrades.
Helo Panel-Built Saunas are a perfect addition to any home. They are beautiful, of the highest quality, and come ready for easy assembly.
The sauna comes as a kit with panels that are finished inside and out, with clear, tongue and groove, Western Red Cedar, fully insulated, and includes foil vapor barrier.
The kit also includes a quality Helo heater and control, rocks, and heater guard. The benches are pre-assembled and easy to install. All hardware is included in addition to a room light, thermometer, pre-hung door with glass window, all interior and exterior trim, wood bucket and ladle.
No additional materials are needed. Simply install on almost any hard, waterproof surface such as concrete or tile. Every panel is numbered for easy assembly. The Panel-Built saunas come in sizes ranging from 4’ x 4’ to 12’ x 12’. By the very nature of its design, a Panel-Built sauna can be disassembled and transported if you move or just decide to move its location around your home.
Helo’s Passport Series is one of the best values in traditional saunas. It is one of the easiest saunas to own – easy to assemble with plug-in simplicity, yet full of upgrades usually found only in designer-type saunas. Helo’s goal was to create a value line of traditional Finnish sauna with ease-of-ownership features similar to our Infrared Sauna line.
Features included in the Passport series include:
- Stereo/CD sound system
- Clear Canadian Hemlock interior and exterior
- Simple hook & pin panel design; easily installs in less than an hour
- Stainless steel heater
- Luxurious look with ceiling overhang and puck lighting
- Interior low voltage lighting & color therapy lighting
- Built-in floor with vinyl surface
4 sizes available (4’ x 6’, 5’ x 5’ corner, 5’ x 7’ and 6’ x 6’ corner)
Outdoor Patio Saunas
Helo Patio saunas take the popular "Panel-Built" sauna series a step further by offering the sauna as an outdoor ready unit. Portable, exceptional quality and easily installed, these patio saunas come with pre-built panels designed to be joined together and powered-up in a few hours. The Patio saunas come in four sizes (4’ x 5’, 4’ x 6’, 5’ x 6’, 5’ x 7’) and feature an optional shingled or metal sheeting roof kit that lets you decide what roofing material you would like.
Custom Cut Saunas
Your options are endless with a Custom Cut sauna from Helo. From your blueprint, floor plan or dimensions, you can have a sauna under a stairway, as part of an in-home gym, even in an unused closet space. Or provide us your space dimensions and we will create a custom design for you. Go ahead – angles, curves, dramatic use of glass, unusual door designs – if you can imagine it, we can build it. Once designed, your contractor builds the sauna using the existing studding of your space.
Each kit contains:
- Interior walls and ceilings
- Cut-to-length, tongue and groove, clear Western Red Cedar or European Alder
- All interior trim
- A genuine Helo heater, rocks and heater guard
- Pre-assembled benches, backrests and headrests
- Pre-hung door with glass window or all-glass door
- Room light, duckboard flooring, thermometer, all hardware
- And, of course, the wooden bucket and ladle.
