Sauna Bath

SAUNA, correctly pronounced "sow (rhymes with wow!) nah," is the only Finnish word in the English dictionary; it means "bath" and "bathhouse." The Sauna (pronounced sow-nah) has been used for centuries, not only as a place to bathe, but as a place for healing, relaxing and enjoyment.

Benefits of Sauna Bath

  • In sauna bathers, Blood vessels become more flexible and there is increased circulation to the extremities. This brings nutrients to subcutaneous and surface tissue resulting in glowing healthy skin. Sauna provides a cardiovascular workout--helps condition the heart.
  • Athletes use Saunas to loosen tight muscles after a hard workout.
  • Sauna bath makes you feel rejuvenated and have increased energy levels.
  • The Sauna helps many get a more restful sleep.
  • A sauna bath opens skin pores, soothes sore muscles, and increases circulation. However, more than common metabolic waste products are secreted through the skin.
  • The Sauna should not, of course, be used as a weight loss aid by itself, but when used with a good diet and exercise program, a Sauna can help burn more calories. Weight is lost in a Sauna, but most of it is water loss from sweating.
