5 Benefits of Using a Sauna

Saunas can provide ultimate relaxation, while also providing you some of the best health and wellness benefits around! Here are five reasons from us at Hot Water Productions on why we think purchasing a sauna for your home can be a great investment of both your time and money.   

 

1. Stress relief 

Our lives are busy, and we are always on the go, but a sauna can relieve your stress at the end of a long day! Cortisol is a hormone in our bodies that is released when we are stressed and too much of it can lead to several health issues. Saunas eliminate this problem by reducing the amount of cortisol in our blood thus stimulating the production of serotonin! 

 

2. Flushing toxins 

Nothing is better than a good sweat! But there’s a big difference between the average sweat and a deep cleansing sweat. Saunas provides ultimate heat that causes your body temperature to rise thus leading to increased blood flow and sweat. Sweat is composed of 99% water, but deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, and mercury which are toxins we intake daily from the environment. The benefits of detoxifying our bodies regularly from these chemicals are great and it is a reason why saunas have become so popular! 

 

3. Fight illness 

Saunas not only flush your toxins, but they also help fight against illness. When the body is exposed to this level of heat, it produces white blood cells more rapidly, which in turn helps to fight illnesses and helps kill viruses. Along with this, the steam in saunas can reduce the uncomfortable effects of sinus congestion, colds, or allergies! 

 

 3. Exercise recovery  

When your body experiences the high heat of a sauna – cue the endorphins! These endorphins have the ability to minimize muscle soreness and joint pain that come along with an intense workout. This increased blood flow can also sooth body aches and pains by speeding up the body’s natural healing process. Many athletes even use saunas after practicing or playing in physical sports! 

 

4. Deeper sleep 

 Results have proven that saunas can provide deeper and more relaxed sleep at night. Using a sauna causes body temperatures to rise and the slow decrease in body temperature before you go to bed can cause a relaxing decline in endorphins that are key for facilitating sleep.  

 

As you can see, there are many benefits to spending time in your sauna. And this is just the beginning! Call or stop into one of our stores today and let one of our professionals find the perfect sauna for you!
