My favorite benefit of a sauna room is the ease of calm and relaxation. The heat of the sauna causes me to just focus on the heat and relaxing...rather than letting my mind run. If you happen to have the luxury of having the sauna to yourself, it is a great place for meditation.
You will sweat a lot...and DETOX. Sweating cleanses your skin and most importantly the toxins from your body.
3. BLOOD CIRCULATION
The heat of the sauna room can cause your heart rate to increase with the dilation of the blood vessels. Blood flow is increased, bringing blood to areas where it is often minimal, like the uppermost layers of your gorgeous skin.
4. PAIN RELIEF
A session in a sauna can help temporarily provide pain relief for aching muscles and mild arthritis. The heat of the sauna soothes sore and tense muscles and increases blood and oxygen to these areas. With that, mobility is often temporarily improved.
5. SKIN CONDITIONING
With blood circulation increased, the upper most layers of your skin will receive blood flow and oxygen and this in turn can help with skin cell regeneration. The heat will aide in the opening of the pores, providing similar benefits of a facial steam.
Notes: The heat of a sauna room raises your temperature to about 100.4 degrees F. It is recommended to only sit for short sessions of 10-20 minutes. It is also best to speak with your doctor before your sauna visit if you have any health conditions or medications that may be affected by the heat.
