The sauna, originating in Finland, has been around for centuries and became a popular trend in the United States for its health benefits, which include detoxification, stress relief, weight loss, and improving circulation. The steam sauna experience changed with the advent of the ability to produce steam electronically in the 1950s, and in the following decades the personal portable steam sauna spa became trendy. It was in the 1970s that the Colonel purchased a steam spa for Elvis that was located in Elvis’ Chino Canyon, Palm Springs home. Elvis used this spa to maintain his heath and in his fitness regimen, as he enjoyed being physically active, playing football, racquetball and karate. The light blue plastic, electric portable Nordic Spa has two back wheels for ease of mobility. The steam sauna, serial number 1189, was manufactured by Scandinavian Products Inc. and contains a blue seat within an enclosure with a front-facing door and a top hole for the head. What could be hotter than the portable steam spa in which Elvis maintained his youthful complexion? This portable spa, measuring 45 inches (114.3 cm) in height, 33 inches (83.82 cm) in length, and 24 inches (60.96 cm) in width emanates from the 1999 Graceland Archives Auction (Lot B174) and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the 1999 Graceland Archives auction and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The sauna exhibits heavy use, with moderate scratches and wear to the exterior, especially towards the bottom edges. Excellent to Mint condition.
