The barrel sauna pays tribute to the early days of modern spas, when wine barrels were cut in half to create an impromptu place to socialize and relax. The same experience can be yours with this traditional sauna. The Greenbrier sauna has hand-crafted ball and socket staves carved from solid Canadian Western Red Cedar. This construction allows the staves to nest securely within one another for a weatherproof fits that minimizes the need for hardware. Two stainless steel bands wrap around the outside of the sauna, securing the staves and offering enhanced structural support, allowing the room to comfortably expand and contract with the normal temperature fluctuations.
This sauna can be placed indoors and outdoors. Its entrance features a full glass door with self-closing hinges to retain the heat of the room. The glass door is tinted in order to contribute to the quiet, relaxing environment, and tempered so as to remain unfazed by the temperature changes. An electric, Finnish style heater completes the experience with heated rocks, and the accompanying bucket and ladle lets you pour water over the hot stones, boosting temperature and humidity for maximum health and relaxation benefits. An interior light glows for perfect ambiance, and each sauna also includes a cedar heater guard, robe hook, and thermometer. The sauna rests on two weather resistant polymer support cradles to preserve the wood and provide a solid foundation for the structure. Illustrated installation instructions are mailed with your sauna, and a demonstration video is available on our website for your convenience.

Warm lighting and music players are a natural complement to the rich, buttery tones of the wood, and these features have become standard in most saunas today. As you browse the selection on this site, you may wonder what the features of steam and infrared saunas are. Here are some highlights that may aid in your shopping or research:
Steam saunas are also sometimes referred to as traditional saunas. This is because they employ the same heating process that was first used by ancient civilizations, namely, water is added to heated rocks to create steam and high temperatures in an enclosed room. As any physician will tell you, the respiratory benefits of a hot, dry, steamed room are numerous, and saunas are recommended for those with asthma and other bronchial conditions. The heat of traditional saunas causes bathers to sweat, which many say improves the complexion and rids the body of excess water. The smell and warmth of the wood in your sauna has relaxation effects unlike any other.
Infrared saunas are a relatively new approach, and aficionados will tell you that they are not technically saunas, but "infrared therapy rooms." The reason for the distinction is that infrared saunas do not heat to the same high temperatures of their traditional counterparts, and no steam is generated by their use. Instead, infrared waves are generated by carbon or ceramic heaters built into the walls and benches of the room, delivering relaxing effects to muscles and joints, while warming to 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (a traditional sauna can reach anywhere from 180 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit). The benefit of infrared saunas is that they run purely on electricity, so no heating elements, buckets or ladels are needed to complete your experience.
