Sauna Treatment

OVERVIEW
A sauna is a small room or building designed as a place to experience dry or wet heat sessions, or an establishment with one or more of these facilities. The steam and high heat make the bathers perspire. Saunas can be divided into two basic types: conventional saunas that warm the air or infrared saunas that warm objects. Infrared saunas may use a variety of materials in their heating area such as charcoal, active carbon fibers, and other materials.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Saunas are often installed in sumptuous resorts and spas, just as like fitness and health clubs for a chill out mode. A steam sauna can take 30 minutes to heat up when first started. Some users prefer taking a warm shower beforehand to speed up perspiration in the sauna. When in the sauna users often sit on a towel for hygiene and put a towel over the head if the face feels too hot but the body feels comfortable.

BENEFITS
The primary benefits of a sauna is that it induces sweating. Although most of us go to great lengths to avoid sweating, perspiration has two essential functions: It cools you down, and it rids the body of waste products. Sauna provides a convenient alternative for those who are unable to take part in harsh exercise activities.

POTENTIAL DOWNSIDES
It is said that most of the Health Claims are unsupported. Saunas can provide relaxation state but saunas do not remove toxins or aid in weight loss. Blood pressures can be affected. Prolonged sessions in a sauna increase the risks of dehydration.
