Not every hotel has a spa. If you long for a little pampering on vacation, but can’t afford to stay in luxury accommodations, consider bringing a portable sauna with you.
Some of these saunas are designed so your head and hands are free, making it easy to read, watch TV, or listen to music. Others look more like a sleeping bag. Both types are extremely portable and are often referred to as saunas on the go.
De-stress with a Portable Sauna
Travel, even for pleasure, adds stress to life. A portable sauna is the perfect way to melt away stress no matter your destination. It’s not unusual for athletes to take advantage of portable saunas when they travel, and business executives are starting to do the same with some of the new ultra-portable sauna styles.
Types of Portable Sauna
The easiest type of portable sauna to pack is more like a sleeping bag or blanket. Under the Sun Saunas offers a Sauna Blanket Thermal Energy Bag with controls for three different sections of your body. Each section has an individual temperature and timer control. This infrared sauna bag provides radiant relaxation of the muscles and controlled perspiration.
Other types of portable saunas are larger and allow you to sit up with your head and arms free. This style of sauna plugs into a basic wall socket.
Pre-Built Portable Sauna
Another kind of sauna are the pre-built saunas. While these are portable, they are not designed for traveling. They can be moved around your house, but they are rather large like a piece of furniture.
The most common heat source for portable saunas is Far infrared (FIR). This heat source heats people and objects, but not the air in your hotel room. It promotes increased circulation as it penetrates body tissue.
Other portable saunas use steam by adding water. Whichever you choose, they make a perfect travel accessory for those who want to enjoy the invigorating benefits they offer.
