Oxygen sauna – relaxation and regeneration for body and soul

What kind of sauna is it?

This type of sauna is a Finnish sauna with oxygen supply. The oxygen is inhaled through a so-called nasal cannula. The nasal cannula is connected with a hose to the oxygen connection on the sauna wall. The “goggles” themselves have two tubes. Through these, the oxygen goes directly into the nostrils. At the beginning, perhaps something getting used to. But once you have felt the beneficial, energizing effect, you won’t want to miss it.

In certain saunas, it is also possible to use a hose to deliver the supplemental oxygen directly to your airways. With the help of these devices, you can inhale the enriched oxygen directly through your mouth and/or nose.

Humans need sufficient oxygen

Taking a sauna is healthy, but it also means exertion for the body. Some even get short of breath, similar to a mountain tour. This is because the intense heat revs up the metabolism.

The tiredness that many feels when visiting the sauna disappears. With sufficient oxygen supply, the brain and organs function much better. The heat becomes more bearable. This is a blessing, especially for sensitive people.
