Feeling fatigued, slow, or experiencing muscle discomfort?

Frequent utilization of traditional saunas has been demonstrated to extend life expectancy, enhance cardiovascular well-being, diminish inflammation, promote muscle recuperation, and aid in bodily detoxification.

This contributes to heightened muscle relaxation, ultimately fostering overall bodily relaxation. It triggers the formation of new neurons and elevates endorphin levels in the brain, leading to reduced inflammation and a quicker recovery process.

Traditional Saunas

Managing body temperature, known as thermoregulation, is the body’s method of preserving equilibrium. Inside the sauna, the body enhances blood circulation to the muscles and prompts sweating as a means to dissipate heat. This mechanism consumes a substantial amount of energy and is why sauna usage promotes relaxation and augments sleep quality. If you ever encounter difficulty falling asleep, consider trying a sauna session 2-3 hours before bedtime to experience the effects firsthand.

Traditional Sauna Benefits

Promoting Athletic Recovery

Research suggests that saunas can enhance the production of human growth hormone (HGH), crucial for muscle and tissue repair.

Saunas possess the ability to alleviate delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and tension, thereby expediting the recovery process after a workout and better preparing athletes for subsequent workouts.

Provide Pain Relief and Improve Mobility

The heated environment encourages the release of anti-inflammatory compounds, leading to diminished pain and increased flexibility.

As per a study, sauna therapy exhibited a reduction in markers of oxidative stress, a potential contributor to inflammation. Regular therapy sessions over time could yield life-improving benefits, positively impacting overall well-being.

Improve Sleep Quality

Heat therapy induces the release of endorphins, providing relief from pain and muscle soreness, while fostering relaxation and enhancing sleep quality.

A sauna session can have a notable impact on sleep patterns.

By increasing your core temperature in the sauna or steam room just before bedtime and then stepping out to allow rapid cooling, your body experiences a temperature drop that prepares you for a deep and restful sleep. The combination of warmth and solitude also contributes to relaxation and unwinding.

Promote Cardiovascular Health

The elevated temperatures in high-quality saunas (around 80 degrees) are thought to contribute to enhanced cardiovascular well-being. In a sauna, the heart rate may increase up to 100 beats per minute during moderate temperatures and up to 150 beats per minute during hotter sessions, resembling the increases observed during moderate exercise.

In a study involving 19 healthy adults, the effects of a single 25-minute sauna session were found to be comparable to those of moderate physical exercise in terms of cardiovascular measures. Similar to the benefits of exercise, regular sauna use typically leads to improved blood pressure, endothelial function, and left ventricular function, while also reducing inflammation.

Rejuvenate Your Skin

Regular use of saunas and steam rooms can yield a remarkable effect on the skin and its overall appearance. The interplay of steam, elevated temperature, sweating, and enhanced circulation stimulates collagen reproduction, offering substantial benefits for the regeneration of skin cells while deeply cleansing and revitalizing your skin.

Facilitate Stress Relief and Relaxation

Steam rooms provide profound stress relief through various avenues. The warmth, seclusion, and elevated temperature collectively induce muscle relaxation, improve circulation, and stimulate the release of endorphins.

Pro tip

To make the most of this protocol, ensure to hydrate with at least 500mls of water before going into the traditional sauna and continue to hydrate both during and after your protocol.

What is sauna therapy?

Sauna and steam therapy involve brief passive exposure to intense heat, resulting in mild hyperthermia—a rise in the body’s core temperature that triggers a thermoregulatory response, restoring balance and preparing the body for future heat stress.

The Infrared Spectrum

Near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths are the shortest in the infrared spectrum and effectively penetrate the skin, promoting skin rejuvenation, cellular health, wound healing, and tissue growth.

Far Infrared (FIR) wavelengths are longer and penetrate deep into soft tissues, targeting areas where inflammation occurs. The combination of both types of infrared radiation enhances the effectiveness of sauna therapy.

FAQs

How long should you sit in a sauna?

The longer you sit in the sauna, the more water is lost through perspiration, so a general rule is to cap your time to 15 to 20 minutes to avoid dehydration, especially if you are new to saunas and steam rooms.

How many times a week should I use a sauna?

Generally, sauna treatments are recommended to be used three to four days per week. If you are healthy and tolerate the four days, you can use the saunas daily. Just be sure to consult your physician if you notice anything abnormal.

Should I shower after a sauna?

you should shower directly afterwards in hot, cool, or even cold water to ensure that you have washed any sweat or bacteria off the skin that could cause odour or discomfort later in the day.

What is proper sauna etiquette?

Clean off any sweat or dirt so you enter fresh; everyone will appreciate it. Public saunas can get full, so be considerate of how much space you are taking up. If someone new enters, make space for them so everyone can sit comfortably and relax.

What should you not do after a sauna?

Don't do anything that can further dehydrate you, such as consume alcohol or recreational drugs before, during, or after sauna use, and don't eat a large meal before using a sauna or steam room.

The contrast therapy procedure encompasses alternating sequences of hot and cold, creating a pumping action in the blood and muscles that enhances oxygen and nutrient supply to the body tissues. These changes in blood flow contribute to many of the established benefits of this therapy, including reduced swelling and inflammation, improved energy and focus, and stress reduction, which in turn promotes relaxation.
