Sauna therapy, also known as sauna bathing, is a therapeutic technique that involves exposing the body to dry or wet heat for a period of time in a sauna room. Sauna therapy has been used for centuries to promote physical and mental well-being and has been gaining popularity in recent years. Scientific research has shown that sauna therapy can have a number of benefits.
One of the main benefits of sauna therapy is its ability to promote cardiovascular health. Sauna therapy can cause a temporary increase in heart rate and blood flow, which can help to improve cardiovascular fitness and reduce the risk of heart disease. Sauna therapy can also help to lower blood pressure and improve circulation.
Sauna therapy can also have benefits for the immune system. The heat from sauna therapy can stimulate the production of white blood cells that help to fight off infections and illnesses. Additionally, sauna therapy can help to reduce the symptoms of respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis by opening the airways.
Sauna therapy can also promote muscle and joint health. The heat can help to increase flexibility and reduce muscle soreness and stiffness.
Furthermore, Sauna therapy can also improve mental well-being by reducing stress and promoting relaxation, as well as by triggering the release of endorphins which can improve mood and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
It’s important to note that sauna therapy can also have negative effects if not done properly, such as dehydration or over-heating, and it can be dangerous for people with certain health conditions. Therefore, we create a personalized and progressive plan to make sure that you are safe during your sauna sessions.
