7 questions to ask yourself when researching saunas

There are many infrared saunas on the market and often it can be difficult for people to identify the differences.

We acknowledge that you want to educate yourself about high-quality saunas so we wrote this article to help you ask the right questions.

Let’s get into it.

1)      How well is the sauna designed?

Purchasing a sauna is an important decision. For a premium infrared sauna, ensure that it is 100% quality-controlled during manufacturing.

You also want to make sure that your sauna is built to last. Ask about the thickness of the timber as it is crucial to its durability. Learn more about how saunas are made here.

2)      Is the sauna made from Sustainably-sourced materials?

In the interest of your health, your sauna should be 100% toxin-free and for the environmentally-conscious, the timber should be sourced in a way that is socially and environmentally responsible.

3)      Does the manufacturer have credibility?

To feel comfortable that you are receiving a top-end product, it is important to look into the company’s history. Do they offer global backing? How long have they been established in the sauna industry?

4)      What wellness benefits can I receive?

Infrared heat is available in different wavelengths and research shows that a blend of 3-in-1 infrared wavelengths can achieve specific health and wellness outcomes. Does the sauna offer these benefits?

5)      Will I be receiving personalised service?

Investigate whether or not you will receive a personal consultant to help you through every step of the process. It is also imperative that a service department is available to help with any post-purchase issues.

6)      Am I simply receiving a sauna or a full wellness solution?

If you are looking for the complete wellness solution, there are additional ways to optimise the natural functioning of the body.

For example, the maintainME program was designed for regular sauna users to keep electrolytes topped up, reduce inflammation and balance the gut.

7)      Is this company investing in Research and Development?

See if the company is continuously pursuing innovation and whether or not they are offering ground breaking features.

We talk about this in our previous article.
