They were wrong — you can take it with you.

The portable domes can be used on the floor, in a bed, on a massage table or sitting in a chair.

Domes fold for easy travel.

Includes two absorbent Spungi towels.

69"L x 28"W x 18"H.

Benefits of the Solo System Sauna

The Solo Systems Sauna can provide relief to patients suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions.

It can also be used to cool down from exercise or to lose weight.

Daily exposure to far-infrared heat may provide a variety of additional benefits including:

• Pain relief

• Lower blood pressure

• Boost the immune and cardiovascular systems

• Burn fat and calories

• Detoxify the body

• Release toxins and fat

• Promote natural healing by purifying the cells that store wastes and harmful toxins, such as cholesterol and heavy metals

• Speed oxygen flow and increase circulation and mobility

• Relax and revitalize the spirit

"It can also be used to cool down from exercise."

Maybe if you worked out on the surface of Mercury or Venus.

Oh, stop being so negative, joe.


Where can you get one?


Right here — for $2,499.

Thanks Flautist, I can always count on you to make me giggle, out loud even. Michael Jackson springtime fresh and 15 forever...too funny =)) Ok enough Michael bashing, even though he does look like a walking, talking corpse. I don't really remember seeing an "ironlung" only in those long ago films at school telling us why we needed those lovely polio shots. But I do have to agree with you on this. Don't think I could get in one even if promised a Pamela Andersons lookalike bod, well maybe I could if it actually DID that.

Doesn't say anywhere you can't hook an IV of tequila and waste away while using this does it?

When I first saw this contraption, I thought it was an iron lung. I guess those who weren't around in the polio era don't know from iron lungs, but they weren't a pleasant thing. (Well, maybe more pleasant than the alternative for the user.) Oooh, even if I had the $2500 to fritter away on one, I don't think I could ever get in it, or even have it in my house. Creepy. And too, there's shades of Michael Jackson relaxing in his hyperbolic oxygen cell or whatever the hell it was he used to keep himself springtime fresh and fifteen forever.

Brrr. Shudder.
