Sauna Benefits.

Prior to delving into the benefits, acknowledgment is due to Dr. Rhonda Patrick, a prominent researcher in heat shock therapy. Dr. Patrick, holding a Ph.D. in biomedical science, is an avid enthusiast of saunas, dedicating extensive time to research, medical data analysis, and the examination of peer-reviewed studies. Engaging in medical science summits, delivering keynotes, podcasts, and online video presentations globally, Dr. Patrick effectively elucidates the scientific intricacies of heat shock therapy. For those with a penchant for sauna-related knowledge, her lectures and discussions come highly recommended for a deeper exploration link.

Without overwhelming with details on heat shock research, presented below are some of the scientifically supported benefits derived from consistent sessions in a traditional Finnish sauna (at 174 degrees for 20 minutes).

The Problem With Most Saunas…

In the United States, accessing a sauna is notably restricted. If fortunate, a local fitness center might possess one, but questions linger about its heat intensity, cleanliness, and composition. Despite a few exceptions, Western culture has not accorded due seriousness to sauna utilization, a trend we are resolute in transforming. Investing in a quality sauna in the contemporary era can be a substantial financial commitment. Saunas deemed worthwhile generally commence around $6,000. The assembly process is intricate, demanding significant space, and necessitating substantial power for proper heating. Securing electrical installation for the sauna entails engaging an electrician, with costs ranging between $2,000 and $4,000 contingent on the proximity to your residence or gym. The substantial size of these saunas results in time and energy wastage in achieving optimal temperatures, diminishing the likelihood of regular use. Opting for a more economical sauna is akin to a gamble. Although they are easily assembled, budget-friendly saunas are typically manufactured abroad, utilizing inferior materials, bound together with hazardous adhesives, and often fail to attain temperatures sufficient for inducing heat shock proteins.

Our Solution.

The Hot Box Sauna is the perfect ‘happy medium.’ It was designed for the common man/woman with an uncommon desire to optimize physical and mental health. The Hot Box Sauna is the smallest one-person sauna on the market, requiring less material, while using a fraction of the power. Despite its smaller size, the sauna has more than enough space to sit comfortably in a yogi ‘criss-cross’ posture or with your legs extended. The sauna’s short profile keeps the heat where it should be compared to taller ‘stall saunas’ that lose the majority of the heat in the ceiling. The design is simple and robust using quality, all natural materials that will last a lifetime. This sauna is delivered in a flat pack of 8 panels, 14 bolts, and can be assembled in under 10 minutes. It is the perfect size for a garage gym or back porch and can be broken down and reassembled easily. The Hot Box Sauna design is minimal and sleek making it a beautiful addition to your home. Simply plug the sauna into a standard household outlet, connect to the app via smart phone, preheat for 15-20 min and you’re ready for the heat shock experience.

Traditional vs Infrared.

There has been a lot of talk about which type of sauna offers the best benefits. Traditional Finnish Saunas heat the environment of the sauna while Infrared Saunas heat the body directly with near/far infrared lighting. Traditional Finnish Saunas are backed by years of medical data while Infrared Saunas are relatively new to the game. At the end of the day this argument could boil down to preference. Personally, I enjoy the intense experience of the traditional sauna over infrared with temperatures ranging from 180 – 220 degrees (Fahrenheit) as opposed to 100 - 150 degrees. Instead of choosing between the two methods we decided to make a hybrid Infrared/Traditional option that delivers the best of both worlds!
