Relax sore, tight, overworked and tired muscles.

The deep heat of your sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief to tight muscles. Increased blood circulation helps your body eliminate waste products and deliver oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, helping them recover faster. Muscles relax better when tissues are warm for greater flexibility and range of motion - a huge sauna benefit.


Relieve daily stress and tension.

Perhaps the most immediate relief your sauna will offer is pure relaxation. Just a few minutes in the warmth of your sauna will soothe nerves and warm tight muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind as the warmth melts away the daily stresses and tensions of everyday life.

Relaxing with the health benefits of a sauna

Reduce and remove body toxins to improve your health.

Increased blood circulation stimulates sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins. Daily perspiration helps your body detoxify as it rids itself of potentially harmful impurities including lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, and cadmium. In addition, perspiration helps release traces of alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol in your blood.


Fight off winter colds with a strengthened immune system.

The sauna's dry heat will raise your body temperature, creating an artificial fever. As it works to lower your body temperature, your immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes as a result of increased perspiration, your resistance to disease is increased.


Strengthen your cardiovascular system & increase blood circulation.

As your body increases blood flow and perspiration production to cool itself, your heart increases blood flow and circulation, providing conditioning benefits similar to rigorous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, helping to improve overall cardiovascular fitness.


Use a sauna as part of a weight control program.

Sit back and relax in the soothing heat of your own home sauna. As you unwind, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat and increasing your heart rate, which in turn burns calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association findings, a 30 minute sauna session may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for the same amount of time. In combination with a healthy eating and exercise regime, the sauna will help you attain your wellness targets.


Refresh, deep clean and moisturize for healthy skin.

Perspiration helps flush out impurities and release dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws the skin's own natural nutrients to the surface, allowing you to see improved tone, elasticity, texture and skin clarity with regular use. Increased blood circulation has been shown to relieve acne, eczema and psoriasis. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly with reduced scaring.

  The health benefits of a sauna can add to an already healthy lifestyle, give you a jump start on your wellness goals or simply provide relief from the daily stresses in life.  Great Saunas offers you a variety of options that will suit your sauna health benefit needs.
