Stress Relief Is The #1 Sauna Health Benefit

So, it is not surprising that avid sauna users rated stress relief as their #1 sauna health benefit. When you step into a sauna you are entering a warm and quite space, a space free of distractions from the outside world. The incredible calming effects of a sauna creates the perfect environment to clear your mind and relax. In the busy world that we all live in today, it is safe to say that everyone can benefit from a little stress relief and a sauna.

In addition to the stress free environment that a sauna has to offer, the hot environment of a sauna warms your muscles and encourages them to relax. The heat also improves circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body’s all-natural “feel good” chemical, and their release provides a truly wonderful “after sauna glow”.

For a little extra stress relief we recommend using an essential oil like eucalyptus. By simply adding a sauna scent to the water that you pour over the rocks you can create an invigorating form of aromatherapy and additional stress relief.
