Impressive benefits of owning a home sauna
A sauna is a wonderful luxury, somewhere to relax and wind down and to enjoy significant wellness benefits. For many people the only place to access a sauna is a gym, health club or a five star hotel. However, for those lucky few there is the opportunity to own a home sauna, with all the impressive benefits that this can bring.
There is no doubt that a sauna is an ultra relaxing space to be in. The peace and quiet, the heat and the warmth have an instantly calming effect on the human body. Many of us exist in a permanent state of alertness and stress thanks to huge daily task lists, too much caffeine or over-stimulation triggered by devices. A sauna is somewhere that you can switch off and let go of the fight or flight response that tends to be almost constant in a stressful daily life.
According to multiple studies, near infrared saunas have been found to have a positive impact on rates of wound and tissue healing. So, spending time in your home sauna each day can actually help to speed up any healing that your body needs to do.
The red light of near infrared saunas helps to stimulate the production of plumping and firming collagen and elastin, which help to make skin appear younger, firmer and smoother. When the body is producing more of these it can also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.
Beauty and skin health
If there’s one thing that everyone does in a sauna it’s sweat. Sweating is actually incredibly good for us, helping to flush toxins out of the system and giving skin a fresh and youthful glow. Sweating in a home sauna also removes bacteria from the pores and improves skin cell turnover, which can lead to a more radiant complexion.
Everyone can benefit from an improvement in circulation and oxygen distribution around the body. A sauna does this instantly, as your body responds to the temperature increase by dilating blood vessels and allowing blood to flow better around the body. Better blood flow means that more oxygen reaches every single part of your body.
Helping with medical ailments
Spending time in a home sauna each day can considerably improve multiple medical ailments with little or no effort from you. It can help to alleviate symptoms of depression or chronic fatigue and also help to reduce the impact of tension headaches. Saunas also have a great anti-inflammatory impact on the body, which means they can reduce pain from inflamed joints or injuries.
Thanks to the improvement in circulation you’ll experience in a sauna your body becomes much more adept at flushing toxins. Multiple studies have found that many modern toxins tend to be eliminated through sweat, as opposed to blood or urine. So, the more you sweat, the more toxins you can flush out.
