About saunas

A sauna originates from a Finnish room in which there is a dry and warm temperature. On average a temperature between 70 and 100 degrees C.

For thousands of years humankind have enjoyed the sauna. In Finland special cabins were build and were heated by stones. These stones were heated by a wood fire. This ensures a evenly distributed heat.

Nowadays the sauna is well known round the world and used for wellness purposes.

In a sauna the core temperature can raise till 39 degrees C. The body will respond by sweating. Because of that blood pressure will decrease and will slow down vein calcification.

Next to the positive effect on the blood vessels a sauna has a positive influence on the metabolism, respiration and relaxation of muscle tissue.
