Raising your bodies temperature will increase your heart rate, which increases the your circulation of blood. Although exercise and sauna both improve the circulation of blood flow to the heart, sauna should never be used as a replacement for exercise.



2. STRESS RELIEF AND RELAXATION


As stress turns more into the norm it's important to counter it by using efficient techniques to find relaxation, like the sauna. Studies have shown saunas reduce the stress hormone cortisol by as much as 10 to 40 percent, according to a 2018 study published in the journal Medical Principles and Practice.



3. PAIN RELIEF


Using sauna's has shown to relief pain. As you sit in a sauna, the heat causes your blood vessels to relax and expand, leading to improved blood flow. This increased circulation can bring relief to tense joints and alleviate muscle soreness. By creating a soothing environment, saunas offer a natural way to reduce tension and promote relaxation in both your joints and muscles.



4. DEEP DETOXIFICATION


When you sweat in a sauna, it assists in removing toxins, impurities, and heavy metals

from your body, resulting in a refreshed and revitalised feeling. Saunas have a deep cleansing effect that contributes to healthier-looking skin and helps maintain overall body cleanliness.



As you can see there are many benefits with using the sauna, and many more. Using this efficient method whether it be for mental rejuvenation, relaxation, or recovery is going to set you up to feeling better in your own skin. Look after yourself, and possibly think about adding this fun but healthy activity into your routine.
