Benefits from using a sauna
Much has been made of the health benefits of sauna bathing. With good reason. Physically, nothing is more reinvigorating than a deep, healthy sweat or every day. Tension fades. Muscles unwind. Mentally, we emerge relaxed, revived and ready for whatever the day may bring. A few minutes a day is all it takes to look and feel better. The body’s response to gentle, persistent heat is well-documented and proven day in and out by people all over the world. This is why more and more doctors are recommending its purifying benefits.
Sauna users most frequently cite stress reduction as the number one benefit of sauna use. Heat bathing provides stress relief in a warm, quiet space without any distractions from the outside world around you.
Under the high heat provided by a sauna, the body releases endorphins. Endorphins can have a mild, enjoyable “tranquillizing effect” and the ability to minimize the pain of arthritis or muscle soreness from your daily workouts.
Deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury, and chemical – which are all toxins commonly absorbed just from interacting with our daily environments.
