A natural boost for your health: sweating makes your body stronger and is good for your mind.
Millions of sauna enthusiasts in Germany are living proof of the lasting value that the sauna can give you. Regular saunas are healthy practice for both body and mind. Eperts agree on this statement and have provided sound evidence.
The basic concept of sweat baths is the consistent alternation of warm and cool-off cycles. During the warming cycle, the body temperature increases to approximately 38°C while the skin can heat up to over 40 degrees. The blood vessels expand, the muscles relax, and the body releases beneficial cells (the so-called killer cells) against the action of viruses and bacteria.
This enhances the body’s immune system and makes people, who regularly go to a sauna, nearly unaffected by colds and chills. Additionally, the cooling off after each steaming cycle enhances the blood vessels. Regular sauna use promotes a normal blood pressure. The autonomic nervous system and organs, assigned to the production of some important hormones, will positively react to the alternate warm and cold cycles. Sweating reduces body and mental stress, which is surely supported by the sharing of the sauna experience with other like-minded individuals.
