Benefit of Sauna

Benefit of Sauna after work out!

The heat of a sauna room raises your skin temperature to 104 degrees F and your internal temperature to 100.4 degrees F, causing your heart rate to speed up and your blood vessels to dilate.

The primary benefit of a sauna room is its ability to relax and de-stress you. The increased heat soothes sore and tense muscles all over your body, giving you a refreshed feeling once your session is complete.

The increased blood flow also helps bring more oxygen to those sore and tense areas. Using a sauna after exercise will also help your body relax while keeping your heart rate up.

The most noticeable effect of a sauna room is that it makes you sweat. The process of sweating cleanses your skin, but also cleanses toxins from food and drink out of your body. 

While in a sauna room, your heart rate will increase and your blood vessels will dilate. This allows your body to pump more blood throughout your body without significantly raising your blood pressure; the effect is similar to that of a brisk walk. While this is no replacement for exercise, it is a great way to boost blood flow, especially to the extremities and upper skin layers, where blood circulation is usually minimal.

Enjoy..raising your heart rate!!!!!!!
