Just tested: Vibrosaun

  1. The Vibrosaun does exactly what its name implies: the device massages and is a sauna for one person. And should help with pain, obesity, stress and a laundry list of discomforts. We can try it for half an hour.

  1. "Here it is", says Heidi van den Heuvel of Sun Beauty Boulevard in Amersfoort proudly as she swings open the door of a small room. Inside is a large white device. I think the whole thing most resembles an 'iron lung'; a device formerly used to ventilate lung patients. You are all in a capsule, except for your head.

Claustrophobic

  1. "But what if I suddenly want to get out?", I ask, anxiously. I spontaneously get a little claustrophobic from the idea. Heidi smiles: "I often hear that from visitors. I always stop there for a while when they have just arrived, but usually that is not necessary the second time." She demonstrates how easily you can push up the semi-circular top if you want to get out or get too hot. That reassures me. The fact that your head is not in it turns out to be an advantage for many people. I also don't really like the sauna, because it gives me the feeling that I am going to pass out. The Vibrosaun literally keeps your cool. There are blazers blowing fresh air in your face. This way, people with respiratory problems can also enjoy a sauna.

Advantages

  1. At the top of the benefits list in the information brochure of the Vibrosaun it says 'reduces muscle and joint pains'. That's good, because I'm doing odd jobs and after two weeks of lugging and painting my body feels quite 'remodeled'. Moreover - that's what point eight promises - the Vibrosaun creates a pleasant, relaxing environment that counteracts stress. And I can use that too, judging by my many curses in the car last week. The leaflet also states: 'Regular use relieves back pain, rheumatic and arthrotic pains, stimulates kidney function and blood circulation, aids in weight loss, reduces insomnia'. Now I can imagine that lying relaxed for half an hour a week and breathing deeply might already help to reduce stress and insomnia, but who does that on their own? Moreover, it is also nice to pamper yourself with a sauna and massage every now and then.

Humming

  1. For a first visit it is quite difficult to immediately enjoy and relax. You can set a lot yourself. For this you have several buttons on the inside of the hood. In front of your face you will see a dashboard that indicates what you are setting. I start with a low temperature, 50 degrees, but I quickly increase that to 70 degrees. It can reach 85 degrees, but that seems like something for experienced sauna visitors. The massage can be harder and softer on your lower legs and under your back. At its hardest setting it looks like you are lying on a washing machine that is spinning, so I decide to set an average power there too. Then I have a button for a blazer in my face and the strength of the musical sounds coming from the boxes next to my ears. I find the choice of music difficult. In itself, the device hums quite loudly, so the relaxing sounds can be a bit louder. But the sound of splashing water blaring loudly in your ear isn't nearly as relaxing as a soft rushing waterfall.

Relaxing

  1. When I finally find the right settings for me, I see on the clock on the dashboard that I only have seven minutes left until the end of my session. I squint my eyes and think, "Relax, relax!" As you can imagine it would be better for this bit if I had been again. Letting yourself go in an environment that you know is a bit easier. Still, after half an hour in the Vibrosaun I feel nice and lazy and my muscles are pleasantly warm. I think it cannot replace a visit to a sauna and masseur, but it is more practical to fit into your daily life. For a small amount you rent a place and moment for yourself, between groceries and dinner. And if you indeed have less pain or have lost weight, then that is a bonus. A
