You don’t have to leave home to enjoy a perfectly relaxing spa day, just get a portable sauna.

Home saunas come in handy when you need to relax after a long day or an intense workout session. If the idea of buying a home sauna feels intimidating, it’s not as scary as you might think. In fact, you don’t need a ton of space to fit one comfortably in your home and there are several options on sale for Presidents’ Day.

See below for more information on the benefits of home saunas and brands that we recommend.

Feel the Heat: Here’s What Makes Home Saunas Worth It

Investing in a sauna means that you’re putting health and wellness first, and that’s always a good thing. Aside from stress relief and pain relief, saunas offer a range of health benefits. According to the National Institute of Health, using a sauna has anti-aging benefits and can help with weight loss, skin rejuvenation, improve sleep habits and increase blood circulation.

And you can use them indoor or outdoors, including in the backyard, basement, home gym or a large bathroom. Not all saunas are created equal though, so while you might find saunas for under $500 such as this portable steam sauna from Amazon, they won’t be as sturdy and don’t look as good as wooden saunas from retailers such as Sun Home Saunas, Home Depot and other options on our list.
