As you look for ways to personalize your wellness routine, consider immersing yourself in the soothing heat of a sauna. The benefits of saunas span the range of stress relief, pain relief, increased immunity, skin health, and more. Let’s discuss your top options.
MODERN SAUNA RANGES
Utilizing heat for whole-body wellness is an ancient healing modality practiced around the world.
Your options include:
Wood-burning saunas are still a popular option. They utilize low humidity and high heat to melt away tension and stress—but they’re not your only option.
Some saunas utilize electric heaters to create a high-heat environment. Like wood-burning alternatives, the air in the room is heated to between 150 and 180 degrees.
The fastest growing trend is infrared rooms that use red LED lights for a wider range of benefits. Infrared warms your tissues, not the air, heating to between 120 and 140 degrees.
THE BENEFITS OF SAUNA
According to Medical News Today, in just 20 minutes this timeless stress and relaxation technique can:
- Improve circulation—increasing circulation can minimize chronic pain, optimize workout recovery, and promote relaxation.
- Provide stress relief—heat alleviates the physical tension in your muscles and can boost the feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine.
- Increase immunity—the increased heat aids your body in releasing toxins to promote self-cleansing and increased improved function.
- Improve skin—increased circulation boosts the nutrients in your skin leaving you with a dewy glow. Infrared rooms have the added benefit of boosting natural collagen production for anti-aging benefits.
