Cedar Barrel Sauna
We would like to introduce our brand new wood barrel sauna available for all of our guests who stay at the Lodge on Harrison Lake. Our barrel sauna is built right here in British Columbia with locally-sourced, Select Tight Knot Western Red Cedar. The cylindrical shape of this barrel sauna makes for a great convection flow where the air naturally recirculates and there are no corners for air to get ’trapped’. This sauna is built perfectly for the cold winter weather.
BENEFITS OF SAUNA
Saunas help relieve stress
Stepping into a sauna helps you immediately shut off from the outside world, enclosed in a warm, quiet space free from everyday distractions immediately puts you in a calmer, more relaxed state of mind.
Muscle aches and pains can be soothed away
An increased blood flow can help speed up your body’s natural healing process and promote muscle regeneration together with natural healing.
Cleanse your skin the natural way
Sweating helps your skin naturally clear pores, rinse bacteria and replace dead skin cells, keeping your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
Saunas help improve your sleep patterns
Using a barrel sauna in the evenings will help you increase your body temperature which in turn promotes a dramatic drop in core temperature after sauna use. This in turn signals the brain that it is time to sleep. Users often recount the feelings of deep sleep after bathing in the calming heat of a sauna.
Help fight illness
Saunas have been linked to a significant reduction in incidences of colds and flu among regular users.
Saunas just smell and feel good
There’s no getting away from it, the smell of natural wood together with a private, warm steam laden environment feels great!
