Sauna and Steam Bathing

A sauna is a dry heat bath taken in a well-insulated room lined with wood and heated with igneous rocks. When water is sprinkled on the heated rocks, it creates steam which further enhances the sauna experience.

Health Benefits of using a Sauna

Always consult with your physician prior to taking a sauna or steam bath!

1. Accelerates blood circulation.
As the heat from the sauna penetrates the body, the blood cells are stimulated and become active and better blood circulation is achieved.

2. Removes fatigue and relieves stress.
Sauna heat calms down the body.  Spending a few minutes inside the sauna room you'll feel the heaviness of your eyelids and sensation of body stress flowing out from your body.

3. Aids in restoring a restful sleep.
Immediately after a sauna session, you will feel more relaxed and settled down which will carry on throughout the day and into your sleep at night.

4. Increases metabolism and burns calories.
The natural heat produced in a sauna burns unwanted calories. Several minutes in the sauna is equivalent to working out in a gym for the same amount of time burning comparable calories.

5. Cleans the dirt from your body pores.
In the sauna you tend to perspire a lot, and along with your perspiration comes the dirt and germs you got from your daily activities. After spending some time in a sauna, you will definitely feel more clean and radiant.

6. Relieves the muscles.
The sauna heat gives total body rest by easing your muscle strains and tensions causing the muscle to go back to its normal, stress-free state.

7. Reduces joint aches and pains.
The sauna heat penetrates the skin, muscles, bones and joints, causing relief and healing.

8. Improves immunity.
The Sauna improves the body's ability to cast off diseases and illnesses. Regular sauna sessions will enhance your body's immune system and fight off germs.

9. Relieves nasal congestion.
Sauna gives off steam from the heat it generates which is very beneficial to a person with colds and congestion.

A steam bath is a self contained personal steam generating unit that can be installed into an existing room (such as a bath or workout room).
