What is a Portable Sauna?
Portable saunas are just that: portable. While some personal saunas can be disassembled and brought along if you’re moving, they aren’t truly portable, and they are impossible to bring along on a last-minute trip.
However, portable saunas are built to neatly pack away, with various folding edges and interlacing designs to minimize their footprint once they’re stored away.
This makes them the ultimate solution for anyone who wants to enjoy their sauna without the constraints of always needing to be at home (or the gym) to use it.
Due to their size, these saunas can easily be plugged into any standard 120V outlet, though you should always verify this in your manual before doing so.
This standard electrical element only increases their portability, making it possible to bring them on a camping trip in the wilderness if you have a portable power station.
The Solo System Portable Sauna Review
This far-infrared portable sauna provides the same sweat-inducing heat as its larger traditional counterpart without the heavy frame and large footprint.
Instead, with its domed design and memory foam pad, you can tuck this unit into a corner of your home, keeping your space clutter-free while enjoying the benefits of regular sauna use!
Standout Features of The Solo System Portable Sauna
Let’s explore the amazing features that have made this portable sauna such a captivating option for homeowners across the country.
This sauna boasts nine SoloCarbon heaters throughout, and while the dome becomes a glowing oasis, that’s not the only place these heaters reside.
Five of these heaters are along the inside of the dome and are capable of reaching temperatures of 65℃ (150℉), wrapping your body in blissful heat for a top-notch sweat session.
The other four are tucked into the SoloPad. These thoughtfully placed heaters radiate heat from below for a full-body experience even as you lounge.
Memory Foam SoloPad
This portable sauna provides a completely therapeutic environment beyond the powerful infrared heaters in its various elements.
The ultra-comfortable SoloPad uses memory foam to ensure a completely therapeutic experience.
This body-forming foam ensures weight is evenly distributed as you sink down to enjoy each session, easing pain from pressure while the infrared light does its work.
Elevating your therapeutic experience even further, the Solo System Portable Sauna includes a strategically placed ring of lights along the edge of the front dome.
With 16 different colour options, this ring pairs the benefits of an infrared sauna with chromotherapy.
Colour therapy uses the visible spectrum of light to influence various elements of your health and well-being, one of the most well-known being mood.
Blue has been known to help decrease stress, while green combats anxiety. Red, on the other hand, can help give your mod a boost on dreary days, while orange can promote an increase in energy.
Unique Benefits of This Portable Sauna
Infrared saunas boast a significant number of health and wellness benefits, including improved skin, reduced stress, and pain relief.
However, portable saunas combine these health benefits with ones to enhance your lifestyle!
It’s Light and Compact
The Solo System Portable Sauna is extremely lightweight, with the domes weighing only 46lbs and the SoloPad coming in at 13lbs.
Furthermore, with various folding points along the SoloPad, you can easily reduce its size, making it possible to tuck it into a corner or even a drawer, keeping it out of sight.
While the Domes don’t break down into smaller sizes, they easily retract over one another, minimizing their footprint when not in use to maximize your usable space.
This thoughtful design ensures storing your sauna is easy without requiring ample space.
Simple to Setup
With this sauna’s intuitive design, the setup becomes effortless. All you need to do is pick a nearby plug, unfold the SoloPad, slide the dome into place and close the front curtain as you soak up the soothing warmth!
This makes it easy for anyone to use, ensuring quality infrared therapy is more accessible than ever.
An Easy On-The-Go Solution
The Solo System Portable Sauna is the perfect solution for those looking for flexibility when it comes to their wellness essentials.
Life can take you anywhere, and if you’re someone who likes to get out and explore, jump in the car for a spontaneous weekend away, or frequently visit family afar and find you’re missing your daily sauna sessions, this sauna is your perfect fit!
Can I Use a Sauna Every Day?
Absolutely! With their array of health benefits, adding even a 20-minute sauna session to your day can do wonders.
Frequency plays a big part in the ongoing effects, which is why we encourage daily use! But remember, it’s important to ensure you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water each day you use your sauna.
How Long Can I Stay in a Sauna?
This all depends on your experience level. While experienced users can comfortably enjoy their sauna for 40 minutes, beginners may find a short 10-minute burst better suits them while they acclimate.
No matter your level, it’s vital to monitor how you’re feeling both during and after use. Watch for any signs of dehydration or overheating, such as dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, or fatigue.
What is The Best Temperature For My Sauna?
If you’re new to using a sauna, keeping the temperature low, around 38℃ (100℉), is a good place to start.
As you advance, you can adjust the temperature, finding the sweet spot that works for you.
