The power of relaxation
One of the main reasons why so many people love the sauna is the deep relaxation it offers. As soon as you enter the sauna room, you can feel the pleasant warmth enveloping your body. During the infusion, the high humidity intensifies the feeling of relaxation. The muscles loosen up, the mind comes to rest and the stresses of everyday life seem to recede into the distance.
But relaxation in the sauna goes far beyond the pure feeling of rest. The heat and humidity also have a positive effect on physical health. The increased temperature in the sauna improves blood flow to muscles and tissue, which not only relieves pain but also promotes healing after injuries or muscle tension.
Sauna enjoyment in the cold season
A visit to the sauna is particularly appealing in the cold season. The contrast between the hot sauna and the cold outside air enhances the feeling of relaxation. Regular saunas have been proven to strengthen the body’s defenses. The alternation of heat and cold trains the immune system and helps to prevent colds. In fact, most sauna-goers are almost completely spared minor infections.
The healing power of the sauna
But what if you are still plagued by a cold, hoarseness or fever? Even then, the sauna can help. A regular visit to the sauna helps you to overcome these symptoms more quickly. The secret lies in training the blood vessels in the skin and in the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract.
In the sauna, the blood vessels dilate due to the dry heat, and after the sauna session, cooling off in the fresh air or with a cold hose causes the vessels to constrict. This interaction strengthens the blood vessels and promotes blood circulation, which strengthens the body’s defenses.
Strengthening the immune system
A weekly visit to the sauna also leads to an increased production of antibodies in the blood. The sauna heat raises the skin temperature to around 42 °C (107,6 °F), which leads to increased metabolic activity. This in turn promotes the production of interferon, an important antibody against infections. This shows that the sauna not only helps to prevent colds, but can also be helpful in combating illnesses.
Happiness in the sauna
However, the positive effect of the sauna is not limited to the body. It also extends to the psyche. The warmth in the sauna cabin leads to deep mental relaxation, which is noticeable as a refreshing effect on the nerves after the sauna bath. The release of endorphins, the so-called happiness hormones, during and after the sauna bath ensures noticeable mental relaxation and an unrestricted sense of well-being for sauna guests.
The sauna is therefore more than just a place of relaxation, it is a place of health, happiness, and well-being. If you have not yet discovered these benefits for yourself, you should definitely consider a visit to the sauna and experience the amazing benefits for yourself. Your health and happiness will thank you!
