Wood Burning or Electric Barrel Saunas

We offer 3 different sizes of barrel saunas with the option for a cool down porch.  A list of specs is listed below in the chart with their associated costs.

 

Our saunas are made from Canadian Timber, manufactured in Ontario, built to last and offer a very relaxing experience.  The saunas can be used as a dry or stream sauna, both offering tremendous health benefits.

 

True North Barrel saunas heat up in less than 1 hour using a minimal amount of wood, 6 small pieces of wood and you’re at a nice relaxing sauna temperature, easily add water to the Sauna rocks that we provide to create an awesome steam sauna experience.

 

The saunas also come with a vent kit, leak proof roof kit and glass in the door.
  • The vent kit allows for air circulation when first starting the sauna as well as to let in fresh air if the sauna has become too hot.
  • At True North Sauna’s we believe a leak proof roof kit is essential in having the best sauna experience, as without a roof kit, Barrel saunas will leak through the roof.  We’ve designed an aesthetically pleasing roof kit to ensure your sauna will not leak.  We strongly feel this is such a crucial component to the barrel sauna experience that every one of our saunas comes with the leak proof roof kit.
  • Glass within our door is also included with everyone of our saunas.
  • Each sauna listed below comes as a DIY kit, and can be assembled within a few hours, the saunas are engineered and manufactured in such a way that they can only be put together one way, this eliminates any frustration with the assembly and takes the guess work out of the install. Two (2) people can assemble the sauna within 3 to 4 hours

Please note; The above saunas are made from Kiln dried Canadian Pine; we can offer the same sauna dimensions in Cedar.  With that said, because of what’s going on in the world with COVID-19 the price is significantly more money and lead times on cedar are significantly longer all because of supply and demand.

THE HEALTH BENEFITS ARE UNBEATABLE.

Some Natural Health Practitioners recommend taking a sauna 2-3 times a week. The health benefits are unbeatable.

Saunas promote sweating by exposing the skin to high heat. The body’s surface temperature while sitting in a sauna, even briefly, can rise to 104 degrees F. The heart rate will increase, and blood will begin to circulate toward the skin surface, causing the body to sweat as it cools itself down.

Many people believe it is this process that is the biggest benefit of a sauna. When you take a sauna, the heat pumps up blood circulation near the skin and stimulates sweating. A proper sauna elicits about a quart of sweat per hour. It helps the body rid itself of unwanted materials and improves general circulation.

Natural Health Practitioner, Dr Weil says in his health column, “I’m a sauna enthusiast, and I often recommend “sweat bathing” in saunas to cleanse the skin, soothe sore muscles, or simply relax. Sweating in a sauna can also be beneficial to patients with arthritis, asthma or respiratory infections, and is a good way to recover from overindulgence in food or drink.

“Sweating in a sauna or steam room dilates the blood vessels, which reduces blood pressure and increases circulation to the skin. You don’t need much time in the heat – 10 to 20 minutes is enough to work up a good sweat.

If you have high blood pressure or a heart problem, be sure to check with your physician before going to a sauna or steam room. The heat can cause circulatory changes, including an increased heart rate. Overall, however, the only real risk to a sauna or steam room is spending too much time sweating. You can faint from overheating and from dehydration. Be sure to drink lots of water before, during and after your sweat.”
