Saunas have been utilised for centuries as a simple, natural way to improve health and wellbeing. Regular sauna use has been shown to have a number of benefits for your physical and mental health, from aiding in muscle recovery to reducing stress.
Regular sauna sessions increase stamina and boost the production of hormones and proteins that are vital for muscle growth and resilience.
Regular sessions have a direct, positive impact on cardiovascular function and heart health – and the benefits increase the more often you go.
Regular sauna use also supports your body’s natural stress regulation processes. Raising your core temperature reduces the levels of cortisol (the ‘stress hormone’) in your system while at the same time releasing feel-good endorphins.
Beyond the immediate ‘bliss’ state, regular sauna use has a positive stabilising effect on mood-regulating hormones.
With only a few sessions per week, saunas can reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety, with preventative benefits lasting for several weeks.
Raising your core temperature causes you to sweat and increases blood circulation to the skin, aiding in the elimination of toxins and impurities.
As you raise your core temperature, your heart rate and your metabolic rate increase to regulate your temperature. This can burn hundreds of calories in a session and help promote steady, sustained weight loss.
Saunas have proven benefits in improving the health of your skin and reducing the visible signs of ageing.
By boosting circulation and increasing perspiration, a sauna helps promote cell turnover, improving skin elasticity, tone and firmness. Sustained sweating also helps flush out the toxins and impurities that contribute to enlarged pores and uneven texture.
The increased temperature dilates blood vessels and relaxes connective tissue, diffusing the tension that contributes to soreness in joints and muscles. It also increases the flow of oxygen-rich blood to reduce inflammation and chronic pain.
The heat of a sauna also stimulates the production of proteins that boost immune function and help prevent common infections.
As your body cools after a session, it releases tension through your entire muscular system and allows you to return to a true resting state. This reduces levels of ‘hyper-alertness’ and can help restore a healthy sleep cycle.
