The inventor of the sauna was inspired after grandma kicked him out for singeing his eyebrows in the oven and constantly perspiring into steamy pots of her special spaghetti. Take the heat outside of the kitchen with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a 40-minute infrared sauna session at PerSauna, located in Redondo Beach (a $37 value).
PerSauna houses private sauna suites that use infrared rays to sizzle away at stress, calories, and high blood pressure. PerSauna’s FDA-approved treatment infuses bodies chilled from too much ice-rink slip ‘n’ sliding with safe infrared rays, lifting the core temperature 3 degrees for the entire 40-minute session. Heated innards can expel cellular toxins, burn up to 700 calories, and decrease blood pressure. Sauna loungers choose between two sweat-attracting options: cedar saunas feature antibacterial, antifungal elements and the aroma of the finest cashmere-containing closets, and basswood saunas offer an unscented and hypoallergenic experience. Private suites are decked out with sound systems and flat-screen TVs, and PerSauna provides complimentary fruit-infused water to replenish depleted sweat stores, ensuring your next game of high-stakes hacky sack will smell like a strawberry patch. Groupon customers will receive an additional 10 percent off any packages purchased the same day of their sauna session.
Green, leafy plants and a cross-legged Buddha statue populate the tranquil foyer of PerSauna, an urban retreat that promotes relaxation and wellness exclusively through infrared-sauna sessions. The space has two types of saunas, both housed in private suites outfitted with flat screens and sound systems. The first type of sauna, made of cedar wood, has antibacterial and antifungal powers, but also bears the aromatic scent of the wood. Those sensitive to odors may prefer the hypoallergenic basswood saunas.
Once bodies are inside the rustic saunas, far-infrared energy begins elevating internal temperatures and promoting a slew of potential benefits. In the comfortable heat, muscles relax and minds sharpen as a healthy sweat pulls toxins, sodium, alcohol, and boy-band lyrics from the body. After typical 40-minute sessions, clients may rehydrate with a glass of fruit-flavored water.
