HOW IT WORKS
When using a sauna, the hot air and humidity cause the body to increase in temperature and start to perspire. In defense, the body increases its blood flow to the surface of the skin to keep it cool. By doing so the heart rate is elevated – which can be equivalent to a mild work out.
ENJOY THE SWEAT
Sweating is the body’s natural way to remove toxins that are can be stored up in the body. The immediate aftereffects of a sauna bath are an enlightened sense of well-being as endorphins are built up in the body’s brain. However, after an hour or so a sauna bather will feel a calmness, and an ultimate sense of relaxation.
Some people like a dry sauna which means no water is added to the rocks. Generally, it will take longer to bring the body to a sweat. By adding water to the rocks, the humidity is increased which cause the bodies pores to open quicker. This is called a wet sauna.
