A sauna is a small room or building that provides a place to experience a dry or wet heat session. Sauna health benefits include improved cardiovascular performance, aid in recovery after intense physical activity, and flush out toxins.
Other benefits are a lessening of stress, deeper sleep, a reduction in colds and flu, skin cleansing, recreational and social benefits, and relaxation. Additional benefits are sweating and detoxification, pain relief, and skin health.
Even though using a sauna is safe for most, it is wise before using a sauna to first talk with your doctor. Some cautions, when using a sauna, are avoiding direct contact with heating elements and not using a sauna after exercise or alcohol use.
To conclude, check out your home improvement store soon, talk with a sauna representative, and find out if a sauna would benefit you.
