How Much Does a Sauna Cost in Exchange for a Good Night’s Sleep?

Posted by

Around 70 million Americans have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep during the night. You might be one of them— tossing and turning, then waking up groggy and needing a big dose of caffeine to get through the day. How much does a sauna cost compared to the sleep benefits of having an infrared sauna in your own home?

After a few days of waking up refreshed and ready to take on the day, you’ll realize that a portable far infrared sauna is the perfect prescription for a good night’s sleep. Here’s why.

  • Take a Break from Work

    Many people go home from work simply to pick up where they  left off - never taking a break from the deadlines that keep them up late.  This can leave us too hyped up and anxious to fall asleep. Turning on your sauna and preparing to get inside is a powerful cue for your mind to start unwinding and preparing  to relax.

  • Get Away from Your Gadgets

    Experts recommend turning off gadgets like phones, computers, and TVs an hour or two before bedtime. These devices emit intense light that disrupts brain functions which control sleep, making it hard to doze off. In contrast, the soft LED or chromotherapy lights of an infrared sauna indulge you in a spa-like ambiance that's gentle on your eyes and helps your brain settle down.

  • Listen to Soothing Music

    Top-of-the-line infrared saunas are equipped with premium speakers and audio control so you can listen to your favorite sounds as you lounge inside your infrared sauna. Turns out, listening to relaxing music assists your body and mind in gearing down for slumber.

    Spending a few minutes inside the comforting heat of a sauna while listening to relaxation music increases your chances of getting some deep, uninterrupted sleep.

  • Release the Endorphins

    Squeezing in a sauna session before bed helps your body release higher levels of endorphins and melatonin. These neurochemicals promote relaxation, mood stability, and sleep. Melatonin also induces drowsiness that makes it easier to fall asleep.

Body Temperature and Sleep

When you go inside a sauna late in the evening, your body temperature gently rises,  depending on how long you stay inside. Once you end your session and take a cold shower, your body experiences a sudden temperature drop. This drop signals your body that it’s time for bed.

Drift Off into a Calm Slumber

Finally, one of the best things about using an infrared sauna before you go to bed is the incredible feeling of stillness and quiet it brings you. Finding this during the rush of the day is hard, but  once you're inside your sauna, everything melts away. This peaceful feeling facilitates a good night's sleep.

If you’re tired of your bedtime struggles, it’s time to think about getting an infrared sauna for your home.  Our specialists at JNH Lifestyles would be more than happy to assist you, so give us a call today.
