Benefits of Traditional Saunas Sunshine Coast

The body’s natural way of maintaining equilibrium is through the regulation of body temperature, known as thermoregulation. When inside a sauna, the body ramps up blood circulation to the muscles and prompts sweating as a means to cool down. This thermoregulation process consumes a significant amount of energy and is the underlying reason why sauna use promotes relaxation and enhances the quality of sleep. If you ever find it challenging to fall asleep, consider trying a sauna session 2-3 hours before bedtime, and you can personally experience the positive effects.

Studies indicate that saunas can boost the production of human growth hormone (HGH), vital for muscle and tissue repair.

Saunas have the potential to diminish delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and tension, thereby accelerating the post-workout recovery rate and better priming athletes for subsequent workouts.

Offer Pain Alleviation and Enhance Mobility

The warm environment promotes the release of anti-inflammatory compounds, contributing to pain reduction and increased flexibility.

According to a study, sauna therapy demonstrated a decrease in indicators of oxidative stress, a potential contributor to inflammation. Consistent therapy over time could yield life-improving benefits, positively impacting overall well-being.

Enhance Sleep Quality

Heat therapy induces the release of endorphins, aiding in pain relief and muscle soreness, while promoting relaxation and improving sleep quality.

A sauna session can have a significant impact on sleeping patterns.

By elevating your core temperature in the sauna or steam room just before bedtime, stepping out allows your body to rapidly cool down, facilitating a temperature drop that readies you for a restful, deep sleep. The combination of warmth and solitude also promotes relaxation and unwinding.

Enhance Cardiovascular Health

The elevated temperatures in quality saunas (around 80 degrees) are estimated to promote 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, mirroring 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, consistent sauna use generally results in improved blood pressure, endothelial function, and left ventricular function, while also reducing inflammation.

Revitalize Your Skin

Frequent use of saunas and steam rooms can produce a remarkable effect on the skin and its overall appearance. The combination of steam, elevated temperature, sweating, and improved circulation stimulates collagen reproduction, providing significant benefits to the regeneration of skin cells while deeply cleansing and rejuvenating your skin.

Promote Stress Relief and Relaxation

Steam rooms offer profound stress relief through various avenues. The warmth, seclusion, and elevated temperature collectively relax the muscles, enhance circulation, and stimulate the release of endorphins.

Pro tip
Boost the benefits by interspersing sauna sessions with cold showers or ice baths across several cycles.

We have combined Traditional Sauna with other equipment into specialized health protocols


40 mins
  • Sauna: 20 min
  • Contrast therapy: 20 min
  • Cold exposure: 3
The initial increase in body temperature in the sauna encourages the body to cool itself down through increasing blood flow and heart rate, contributing to cardiovascular conditioning, similar to the effects of moderate exercise. In combination with the traditional sauna, the contrast pools work to constrict (in the cold) and then dilate (in the hot) the blood vessels, creating a pumping like mechanism. These changes in blood flow over a contrast session, stimulates neurogenesis, increases endorphins levels, reduces inflammation, and accelerates muscle recovery.


60 mins
  • Sauna: 20 min
  • Contrast therapy: 10 min
  • Steam room: 20 min
  • Cold exposure: 1
By actively engaging the body’s thermoregulatory system through a sequence of both hot and cold therapies the nordic will work to improve your circulation, reduce stress and enhance muscle recovery.

How does our traditional sauna on the Sunshine Coast work?

Using a traditional sauna is an experience that leads to utter relaxation. The session involves brief passive exposure to bursts of intense heat. The rise in body temperature, mild hyperthermia, triggers thermoregulation, leading to perspiration to restore balance. Blood flow to the skin will increase by 50 – 705, and 0.5kg of sweat is lost on average. Hormesis, a protective response, is activated, leading to health benefits such as cellular repair, improved sleep quality, muscle relaxation, and more.

Traditional Sauna FAQs

People usually wear a towel or swimsuit in a sauna. This is usually to make a barrier between your skin and the sauna bench and maintain modesty.
You can use a traditional sauna if you have cardiovascular issues. However, you need to use it cautiously because of the potential impact on the heart rate and blood pressure. If you have cardiovascular problems, it’s essential to consult your doctor before using a traditional sauna.
Yes, you should shower directly after using a sauna. Saunas make you sweat, which expels toxins from your body, which then sit on your skin. You need to wash off the toxins, possibly holding bacteria that could cause odour or discomfort.
