Try a personal sauna from the comfort of your own home!
I, for one, am convinced it was "The Simpsons" who put the idea of a jacuzzi suit out into the world for major retailers like Wayfair and Amazon to poach and perfect for the comfort-loving people who need hot water in its many forms to relax after a day at the mill.
While the real-life versions of the whole-body mobile spa aren’t as cartoonishly outlandish (or outlandishly cartoonish) as the jacuzzi suit, the sheer number of reasonably-priced personal saunas you can order from sites like Amazon or Wayfair is surprising at best. From this $160 Durasage Oversized Portable Steam Sauna Spa to a way more expensive version that uses “intense sauna immersion” to “raise your core body temperature,” these are some of the wildest and most wonderful personal saunas on the internet.
