There are a plethora of different types of sauna out there to choose from. Here at East End Spa Service we only use the choice materials, and through our partnership with companies based here in the USA, and Canada we are able to ensure the safest and highest quality sauna experience available.
Traditional saunas are made of high quality materials, and are modeled with clean lines and simple elegance. Steam is generated with traditional hot stones to soothe and relax tired and aching muscles and stimulate circulation. Perspiration in a hot stone steam environment allows deep cleaning of the pores for detoxification and fosters a deeper, sounder sleep. Our traditional saunas surround the user in comfort and beauty.
Far Infrared saunas are engineered to create the optimal sauna experience. Studies have shown that far infrared saunas are two to three times more effective than traditional saunas by using far infrared light, which is invisible to the human eye. Far infrared light is absorbed into the body which creates a sensation of warmth and stimulates our biological systems. Far infrared saunas use the same technology that is used in hospitals to keep premature babies warm. Far infrared saunas evenly warm the body raising core temperature to increase circulation, boost the immune system, relieve pain, energize the body, and clean and beautify the skin. Studies have seen clinical decreases in pain and stiffness in patients with Rheumatoid arthritis with no negative side effects. (1) According to a Canadian study, because infrared heat penetrates more deeply than warmed air in a traditional sauna, users of far-infrared saunas develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature than users of traditional saunas. Because the demand on the cardiovascular system in a far infrared sauna is similar to that achieved by walking at a moderate pace, Far infrared saunas might be of particular benefit to those who are sedentary due to various medical conditions like osteoarthritis, or cardiovascular, or respiratory problems.

Now that you’ve decided to have a sauna built the next step is where to put it!
-Would you like your sauna indoors or outdoors?
-How large of an area do you have to build your sauna?
-How many people will be using the sauna?
-Will the space need modifications before installing a sauna?
Asking yourself these questions we can begin to get started designing your sauna. Because our saunas are custom made we can accommodate any size specifications whether you would like a small sauna for one, or a luxury steam room for fifty or more. We have experience creating beautiful saunas in all environments and are licensed and insured, and able to meet all residential and commercial codes including handicap accessible saunas with ramps and custom size doors to meet your specific needs.
What materials would you like to use for the walls and floor?
Are there any special features, or accessories you would like to include?
Now that you’ve picked a space for your sauna now you can begin working with our designer on the details. From entry level saunas to deluxe saunas with custom lighting, benching, and multiple wood choices and styles we have solutions for every taste and budget. Some of the wood choices available are Canadian Hemlock, Nordic White Spruce, Clear Western Red Cedar, and Poplar. These woods are kiln dried for strength and durability and will not warp like many air dried woods used in saunas fabricated in China.
Canadian Hemlock – A rich blonde wood that is grown here in North America, it is light and bright in color with the perfect combination of strength and beauty.
Nordic White Spruce and Abachi – For those who want a traditional Finnish style sauna. These woods are only available through our partnership with Finnleo and are the lowest maintenance of the wood types available. These woods will stay lighter, longer, and Abachi benches are said to be the most comfortable available.
Clear Western Red Cedar – Cedar is the darker of the woods available and is good for saunas with high moisture, and for those who enjoy the smell of cedar. This Cedar is the best quality cedar on the market—selected ‘above’ grade specifically for use in saunas with vertical grain, and no knots. This is the most popular wood for saunas with a distinctive aromatic scent.
Poplar – Poplar is a great choice for those who suffer from allergies as it does not have the natural oils that are contained in woods like cedar.
Wood choices may vary depending on availability and price range.
Along with wood choices we can customize your sauna to fit the style of your home by adding curved walls, glass windows, beautiful and unique doors, custom benches, lighting, and trim. There are so many ways to customize your sauna and make it just right for you and your space.
