Benefits of Sauna

Saturday, December 19, 2009

 A sauna is a small room designed to be heated to very high temperatures, with well-controlled humidity. Saunas are used both for recreational and therapeutic purposes, with most people utilizing them as a relaxation tool that provides additional health benefits. There are two main types of saunas: dry and wet. Which type you prefer is just a matter of taste. Wet saunas are sometimes called steam rooms, and are kept at lower temperatures than their dry counterparts usually between 100-115 Fahrenheit (37-46 Celsius). While dry saunas may be kept at much higher temperatures of up to 250 Fahrenheit (121 Celsius), by keeping the ambient moisture down to nearly zero.

I read lots of articles about sauna. It can actually help to stay free of diseases in a natural and healthy way. There is overwhelming evidence that the toxins we breathe, eat and drink are responsible for the majority of illness, and saunas are proven to be the most effective method for the daily removal of these toxins. Sauna causes your body to burn calories. Your sweat glands produce sweat, which requires energy, and therefore increases caloric expenditure. Saunas should not be solely relied upon, however, as a weight loss system. Not only that, it can also help those with breathing or sinus conditions breathe better. Oh, by the way, me and my sister had sinus problems before this. So, I decided to give it a try! And I really went... that was few weeks ago with my sister. Actually, it's our first time in a sauna :-) The place we went to is called Ratu Wellness Centre which is located at Jalan Satok, Kuching. It's a small sauna and we'd spent about 30 minutes in there. Before we start off our sauna session, we were asked to strip down and put on the towels they gave us to get ready for a nice shower before entering the sauna room. While in the sauna room, all I have to say is, it was lovely, hot, smoky and sweaty! I noticed that it has some form of hot fragrant rocks in there which may be splashed with water to release both a short burst of steam, (temporarily creating the impression of a higher temperature), and a pleasing aroma. After the sauna session, we had another cool shower. We really had a great time and great experience!! Wow, I can feel the difference in my body after only one sauna visit. Amazing!! I warmly recommend the sauna. For those who haven't been to sauna, try to experience it and you will just feel so relaxed, both physically and mentally.

For those who have health problems conditions should consult a physician before trying a sauna.
