From Commute to Complete Zen: Indiana School Bus Transformed into a Mobile Sauna
A mobile sauna is hitting Hoosier streets!
Saunas are known for being places to relax for a bit whether you relax after a workout or use it as a short period of time to wind down after a busy day. Did you know that there are actually some health benefits to saunas? According to Mayo Clinic, sensible sauna use (meaning not extreme temperatures, and for the appropriate amount of time) can actually have some benefits.
Beyond pleasure and relaxation, emerging evidence suggests that sauna bathing has several health benefits, which include reduction in the risk of vascular diseases such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease (CVD), stroke, and neurocognitive diseases; nonvascular conditions such as pulmonary diseases including common flu; mortality; treatment of specific skin conditions; as well as pain in conditions such as rheumatic diseases and headache.
A Sauna That Rolls To You
A new sauna has hit the streets of Indiana, it's called Sauna Social, so what is it? Well, it's a school bus that was converted into a sauna that rolls all over town, and to events, so basically it's a sauna that comes to you. I mean have you ever seen the inside of a school bus look THIS zen??
Sauna Social was started by three friends after purchasing a school bus in 2021.
Our mission? We want to introduce our Indiana neighbors to the mental and physical benefits of regular sauna visits. Hydration, deep breathing, thermal therapy, or the under-appreciated value of "quiet" are just few of the many benefits that can lead to new positive changes in your health and wellbeing. We're big on access to wellness in all communities - hence the wheels! We hope to bring this unique detoxifying experience to anyone, anywhere. Everyone is welcome aboard Sauna Social. We are passionate about maintaining the integrity of the sauna culture and strive to create an atmosphere of peace for our guests.
The bus is complete with sauna, and of course dressing rooms if you want to change into a swimsuit or workout clothes if you'd like.
Sauna Social is based in the Indianapolis area, but I wonder if we can get them to head on down to Evansville sometime? You can learn more about Sauna Social, here. This looks like the perfect place to hang out on a cold day if I'm being honest!
