Benefits of Dry Sauna:
The high temps inside of a dry sauna increase the heart rate. This speeds the blood’s circulation through the body. This can help those with poor circulation by getting the blood out to their extremities. According to Harvard Medical School, the pulse rate can increase by 30 percent when you enter a sauna.
Heat enables the body to relax and release muscle tension. It is a beneficial thermal therapy to complement a massage treatment. Chronic muscle tension can lead to pain and also perpetuate the stress cycle. Regular sauna sessions can break that cycle.
Heating the core body temperature mimics a fever allowing the body to fight off infection and illness. Studies have shown that regular sauna sessions can reduce the number of colds a person gets and limit their duration.
“Saunas may help headache sufferers, in particular. One study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine examined the use of saunas to help relieve pain and treat the symptoms of chronic tension-type headache, frequent headaches that occur more than 15 days per month. After eight weeks of sauna exposure, participants reported a significant improvement in headache intensity.” – Mens Health
