The nice bits, benefits include
Regular sauna visits are a gentle but effective way to keep the heart and circulatory system in shape.
Our body is conditioned by the alternating application of heat and cold and is more resistant to infection as a result of this and the increased production of antibodies in the mucus membranes. Sweating removes waste products from the fluid between the tissue cells.
Sweating also acts to prevent everyday health disorders such as fatigue, loss of vitality , tension, stress and colds, which are particularly feared by athletes.
No other measure can comparably promote strong and thorough circulation and relaxation in so short a time and without putting a strain on the body.
Athletes have long known that the sauna is good for muscle cramps and muscle pain as the production of adrenal hormones when in the sauna can have a pain relieving effect.
Heat therapy can treat muscle and joint pain because there is increased release of B-endorphins, which stop pain and promote euphoria thanks to their morphine-like properties.
