We are now quickly getting closer to the Christmas Holidays and we hope you will spend some valuable time with your closest family. This is the perfect time to invest in you and your health. Having a sauna is not only relaxing and cosy, it can also improve your wellbeing.
We have listed 4 reasons why sauna is good for your body and soul.
1. Saunas relieve stress
Sauna use can help the body and mind adapt to stress and reduce the risk of depression and other mental disorders. In addition to the adaption to stress, the improved cardiorespiratory fitness contributes to the therapeutic effects of sauna for depression and anxiety.
2. Deeper sleep
Research has shown that a deeper, more relaxed sleep can result from sauna use. In addition to the release of endorphins, body temperatures, which become elevated in the late evening, fall at bedtime. This slow, relaxing decline in endorphins is key in facilitating sleep. Sauna bathers worldwide enjoy the deep sleep experiences they feel after bathing in the calming heat.
3. Sauna cleanses skin
When the body begins to produce sweat via deep sweating, the skin is then cleansed, and dead skin cells are replaced. Sweating rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve the capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer-looking quality.
4. Recreational and social benefits
While the social benefit is rarely talked about, it’s actually quite important. The sauna can be a private, personal area of relaxation and solitude. However, sauna can just as easily be a relaxing environment for socializing with your family.
