The Health Benefits of Dry Saunas

Dry saunas are thought to be very good for your health. In fact, in Finland the dry sauna is a tradition and one out of seven people living in Finland own a sauna! That is 700,000 dry saunas!

They claim many therapeutic benefits, such as relaxation, and stress-reduction. Dry saunas also help the body get rid of toxic metals that can be picked up by the environment by making you sweat.

The dry sauna uses up calories by making your body work, which assists in weight loss. Studies show a person can burn up to 300 calories during one dry sauna session, which is like taking a 2.5 mile jog!

Dry saunas are recommended by many doctors, but if you don't drink plenty of water or juice to replace the quart of water you loose during a 20 minute session, it can lead to nausea and/or fatigue.

A dry sauna session can do the following:

  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Make the heart pump harder
  • Relieve pain
  • Speed healing
  • Promote relaxation

Many athletes take sauna sessions for these reasons, and doctors recommend dry saunas for those depressed, in pain, or stressed. So if you are hurt, stressed, or just not up to par, ask your doctor about trying a dry sauna. It may be good for your body and may help fight bacteria, infections, and viruses.

When a dry sauna is used regularly, many users report the following; weight control, toxin reduction, blood circulation, rash reduction, skin cleansing, youthful restoration, allergy reduction, medal reduction, cellulite reduction, and skin rejuvenation.

Sweating has been proven to be the healthiest thing for your body today. Not only do you get a nice, relaxed session, you get the great health benefits along with it! So if you want to improve your overall well-being and get rid of some stress, purchase a dry sauna, or sign up for a session.
