Sauna strengthens the immune system, combats stress, helps relax, helps to eliminate the cold in the body and helps in weight loss belts, provides a feeling of cleansing and refreshing the skin, relieving and relaxing both the body and the mind. These are the reasons why clients of Spa Ice Resort Timisoara are spoiled.
Heat has the role of relaxing muscles and therefore the sauna is especially recommended after a fitness workout or swimming. Before going to the sauna you must, of course, take a shower. Enter the sauna and try to stay as long as you can withstand within 15 minutes. If you can not resist 15 minutes, you can go out early, so you do not get sick. Try to cool the body with cold water without subjecting it to shocks.
Strengthening the immune system and preventing colds
Due to its heat and humidity in the air, the dry sauna is designed to facilitate some processes in the body, such as antibody synthesis, bacterial and virus destruction both in the skin and respiratory system, as pathogenic microorganisms do not withstand temperatures which we expose during the sauna. This will strengthen your immune system by preventing colds first without taking medication or other treatments.
Sauna is the equivalent of cardio exercises
During the saunas, the body undergoes changes in the cardio-respiratory system equivalent to cardio-cardiac exercises. Sauna increases heart rate, dilates arteries, lowers tension, opens capillaries in closed areas, vascularizing body tissues. Thanks to the warmth of your heart, your heart rate will accelerate, expanding the blood vessels, leading to a visible improvement in blood circulation. Again under these conditions acceleration of metabolism takes place. The point is that when you are at the sauna, your body reacts like when you are doing cardio exercises!
Improves respiratory functions
Air in the lungs should be warmer and also have a much higher humidity than atmospheric air, as lung tissue is lined with a liquid (lung surfactant). The sauna, with a hot and well humidified air, dilates the lung capillaries, intensifies the breathing and thus the oxygen intake that penetrates into the blood and reaches the tissues, maintaining optimal humidity in the lungs and at the same time improving the vascularization of the respiratory mucosa, to the bronchi.
By sweating, most of the toxins are eliminated in the body, and the rest is eliminated by urinary retention. Sauna intensifies perspiration processes and also causes diuresis (so it is recommended not to consume liquids and go to the toilet before the sauna).
Effects on the skin
The sauna also oxygenates the body, vascularises the entire surface of the skin, rejuvenates it, stimulates it, stimulates hair growth and prevents it from falling, accelerates the growth of nails and also maintains moisturized skin. At the same time, the sauna helps eliminate the particles of dust absorbed by our pores, as well as the decomposition of dead skin cells that will exfoliate much easier.
Mint and eucalyptus flavors are recommended against colds, for releasing rose and lavender essences, and for energizing, mandarin and oranges. In the sauna you can also do skin treatments and apply different masks. Heat helps to absorb creams and increases their efficiency.
Physical and mental relaxation is an adjoining benefit of the sauna.
So, the benefits of the sauna include stress relieving. Heat has the role of relaxing muscles and therefore the sauna is especially recommended after an intensive training session (fitness, dance, tae-bo etc). Then followed by a massage, it can work wonders on the whole body. Equally important is the mental relaxation, the sauna helping to maintain psychic balance, eliminating stress.
Synthesizing, the main benefits of the sauna are:
– relieves muscles, relieves arthritis pain;
– increases the body’s resistance to infections;
– Accelerates blood circulation;
– detoxifies the body and revitalizes the skin;
– improves respiratory function;
– increases mood.
Recommended sauna visit
• Before going to the sauna you must, of course, take a shower. Thus, you are accustomed to the high temperature body.
• Enter the sauna and try to stay as hard as you can, but no more than 15 minutes. If you can not resist 15 minutes, you can go out early, so you do not get sick.
• After a maximum of 15 minutes, go out and take a shower with the relatively lower temperature, then sit back and pull the soul.
• Enter for the second sauna session and repeat the same procedure.
When you enter the sauna, the ideal is not to “stay dry”. The dry sauna will not make you sweat properly unless you “help” it with a little water. In any sauna you will find some stones heated by an electrical installation, along with a bucket of water full of water and a wooden spoon in it. Pour the spoon over the stones. This water will evaporate and warm the atmosphere in the sauna, while increasing the humidity. The outcome? You will sweat more.
Sauna can increase tension if you are not careful and stay longer than your body thinks necessary. So be careful and go on the principle that it’s preferable to stay less than to stay too much. At least in the first 10 sessions.
