Finnish Sauna

Dry sauna exposes the body to high temperature. Intensive body heating melts away stress and strain of tired and stiff muscles. Heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. It is also a great for injury prevention.

Built out of red cedar, the Finnish sauna has two levels of benches that vary in temperature, with the higher level being hotter. A high-efficiency wood stove heats over a tonne of stones, which radiates dry heat combined with the essential oils.

Close your eyes and let your body temperature raise creating a sensation of deep relaxation and rest. Your blood will circulate in your veins like hot fire and stimulate the immune system.

As heat from the blood begins to move toward the skin's surface, the body’s nervous system sends signals to millions of sweat glands that cover the human body. As the sweat glands become stimulated, they produce sweat. Deep sweating in a sauna can help reduce levels of lead, copper, zinc, nickel, mercury - toxins that are commonly absorbed by simply interacting with our daily environments. Sweat therapy is one of the best methods of body detoxification. It eliminates harmful toxins through the largest human organ – the skin. Heat Therapy stimulates the sweat glands allowing body to detoxify while strengthening the body’s immune system. This helps fight off everything from the common cold to serious and life threatening diseases such as cancer. Sauna treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process and promotes a sense of well-being.
