The benefits of sauna

The benefits of sauna

The high temperature in saunas and the resulting steam cause increased sweating by widening the pores of the skin. Various toxins and other deposits leave the body through the pores by sweating.

  • Sauna users often feel refreshed and experience health improvements, which is not a coincidence. Your body carries out detoxification by sweating, while your muscles become relaxed, and your overall well-being improves greatly.
  • The hot vapour boosts blood circulation in every part of the body, including muscles and joints. As a result, oxygen supply improves, which is essential for cell regeneration and formation of new cells.
  • Many consider saunas to be a more effective weight-loss method than sports. It is a fact indeed that saunas have a positive effect on metabolism - it accelerates it and enhances its effectiveness, which might result in weight loss. Spending 15-20 minutes in a sauna is equal to a one-hour brisk walk or to a lighter training session.
  • Regular sauna use can help you relieve tension. People with sleep difficulties (e.g. insomnia) are particularly fond of using saunas because it promotes deep and relaxing sleep.
  • As the heat in a sauna improves circulation, it may also promote relaxation. This can improve feelings of well-being.

What is the difference between Finnish and Infrared saunas?

What is the difference between Finnish and Infrared saunas?

Finnish saunas

The recommended temperature is around 75-90 ° C and it is perfect for cardiovascular diseases.

  • It has an invigorating effect on the body, improves metabolism, and helps to get rid of toxins. While sitting in a Finnish sauna our hearts work faster, thus delivering blood better everywhere in the body.
  • It is also suitable for treating allergic problems, improving the condition of eczema skin, recurring inflammatory complaints, muscle failure.
  • It is recommended to use up to twice a week. You have to wait for it to warm up to the right tempreture after turning it on.
Infrared saunas
  • An infrared cabin is efficient, yet more gentle than traditional saunas, as the temperature inside is only 35-45 °C, thus it is suitable for people who don’t prefer higher temperatures.
  • The heart of the infrared cabin is an infrared heater that emits an invisible ray of certain defined wavelengths.
  • Long-wave infrared radiation penetrates into muscle fibers at a depth of 3.5 to 4 cm, resulting in 3-4 times stronger sweating than normal.
  • Inside an infrared sauna, sweating happens not only through the sweat glands, but also through the sebaceous glands, which is important because many toxic substances are not soluble in water but only in body fat. In a normal sauna, 97% of the sweat consists of water, while in the case of an infra sauna, 80% of sweat is water and 20% of it is fat, and it contains cholesterol and other fat-soluble substances as well. So during the use of an infrared sauna, you not only lose weight but also get rid of harmful chemicals and toxins accumulated in your body.
  • Special lamps use light waves to heat a person's body, not the entire room. Temperatures are typically lower than other saunas, but the person sweats in a similar way.
