Before you buy

The experienced user is quite familiar with the proper definitions of the sauna experience; however the average person can be confused by all the terminology. Suffice it to say there is much well-intentioned, yet inaccurate information out there, especially on the internet. At Elite Spas & Leisure we want you to make a well-informed decision when purchasing a Sauna. For that reason we provide some very basic explanations to some of the terminology that is often used.

According to the dictionary, a sauna is “A bath that uses dry heat to induce perspiration, and in which steam is produced by pouring water on heated stones” The true experience involves hot rocks, water and steam, which is what you will experience in the Cedar Barrel Sauna.

Wet vs Dry
People often ask if we produce a dry or wet experience, and the answer is both, as they are one and the same thing. When you enter the hot room, it is considered dry because there is little humidity in the air. When you pour water on rocks, steam is generated that quickly engulfs the room. The sudden increase in the level of humidity makes it wet. In other words, wet v’s dry is a measure of whether or not there is humidity in the room.

Steam Room
Saunas and steam rooms are often confused as being the same thing, but they are very different. A steam room has hot mist that is created by a steam generator and sprayed through nozzles located throughout the room. The room is tiled and is often used in conjunction with a shower.

While infrared is often called Sauna, it is not an accurate description in the true sense of the word. Since neither hot stones nor water are used, an infrared room does not meet the definition of a sauna. Instead, an infrared room generates heat from the infrared portion of the light spectrum. The whole point of an infrared room is that it delivers heat therapy without getting extremely hot. Rather than the room getting hot from a central heater, the infrared rays penetrate the body and are delivered from several heaters located throughout the room.
