Saunas

HEALTH, QUALITY, STYLE…

In today’s fast paced world we all need a break from the stress, tension and noise of every day life. A Helo sauna provides a private retreat— a mini-vacation right in your own home. As our Scandinavian ancestors knew centuries ago, the benefits of sauna and heat bathing are many.

A Helo® sauna will provide the perfect quiet retreat at day’s end, or will complement your fitness program in your in-home fitness center. The warm enveloping heat of a sauna, combined with the soft stream created by sprinkling water on the rocks, provides the ultimate way to reduce stress and ease aching muscles.

The decision to reward yourself with a sauna goes hand in hand with choosing Helo. Helo is the oldest name in sauna and steam bathing—beginning in Finland almost 90 years ago. Since arriving in the U.S. more than 40 years ago, more American architects have specified Helo than any other brand.

Helo has become the world’s largest sauna and steam manufacturer through innovation, product development and an uncompromising commitment to quality. Helo saunas, at first glance, are very impressive; they become even more so upon careful examination.

Helo quality is immediately evident by our use of woods—clear and graded to the lightest of colors. It continues with helo® styling. The sauna itself, of course, but also the sleek, contemporary heaters and user-friendly controls

The Sauna Life

In today’s world, many of us have sedentary jobs and don’t perspire regularly.  A great deal of medical studies show that perspiration has incredible health benefits.  Regular use of your helo sauna will provide you the benefits that come only from a deep sweat.

As you enjoy the luxurious heat of a sauna, your core body temperature will start to rise,  blood vessels dilate, causing increased circulation.  As heat from the blood migrates toward the skin surfaces and your core temperature rises, the body’s nervous system sends signals to the millions of perspiration glands covering the body.  As the   glands are stimulated they produce sweat.  Sweat production is primarily for the cooling of the body, and is composed mostly of water—but deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel and mercury—all toxins commonly picked up from our environment. At the same time, skin is cleansed and dead cells are replaced, keeping your skin in good working condition. Sweat rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts.  Cleansing of the pores improves the capillary circulation and gives the skin a soft, beautiful appearance.

Whether you use a sauna for the health benefit, as a social haven with friends, or simply as a place to relax, all seem to agree, a sauna has many restorative benefits.
