The Finnish sauna has become more and more widespread, used as a treatment for physical and mental well-being. In fact the & nbsp; heat bath eliminates toxins and skin waste thanks to the high sweating that occurs during treatment, also increasing transpiration .
Starting from its origins the Sauna was born in Finland, where initially it was placed in a hole dug into the ground and then covered, now instead special spaces are made more and more equipped, where the temperature is takes about 60/70 ° C thanks to suitable stoves. Right now we are talking about a "dry" air bath , which should last about 10-15 minutes; then continue with a " superheated steam bath " that is obtained by throwing water on the hot stones, favoring an abundant sweating with a stay of 15-20 minutes. Subsequently, in the Nordic countries, they take a bath in the frozen water , but also a shower with cold water can suffice.
The interiors of our saunas, including benches, are covered in rough firewood or poplar untreated , so as to avoid that, by evaporating, the substances used for the treatments do not damage the organism during the session. Also for this reason it is always advised to bring with you a towel to rest on the wood.
The sauna, which is now very popular even for private homes, is not just a moment of well-being and relaxation, but is now considered a therapy to treat or prevent physical problems: for example, after a hard workout, often the muscles are sore from an excess of lactic acid: the Finnish sauna helps to relax the muscles, thus relieving the sensation of pain. In case of trauma and contractures, the sauna is recommended for the decontracting effect on the muscles.
The sauna also gives a healthier appearance to the skin, because, thanks to the heat, the pores dilate and the sweat eliminates the toxins, moreover the blood vessels, with the dilatation, also increase the flow of oxygen and liquids, thus eliminating all dead cells. Thanks to this procedure, the skin is strengthened, more easily resisting atmospheric agents such as heat, cold, wind and smog.
But the effects certainly do not end here. The Finnish sauna gives beneficial effects on cellulite, decreasing the water retention, and the immune system is reinforced, as the high temperature simulates a sort of artificial fever which, by activating the antibodies, allows the elimination of many bacteria. The treatment in the sauna is mainly recommended for those who are subject to respiratory problems such as: sinusitis, bronchitis, rhinitis etc ... because in the body are released endorphins that have analgesic and physiological properties.
The sauna gives relief to respiratory diseases (bronchitis, sinusitis and chronic rhinitis) and to nasal congestion. It has a relaxing function because, thanks to the increase in cardiovascular activity, endorphins are released into the body, substances that have physiological and analgesic properties.
A 'high presence of anions (negative ions) slows down the body's aging process , reduces asthma, increases mental concentration, lowers the levels of nervousness and insomnia and improves the immune system.
To have all these benefits the "sweat bath" must last a whole or two hours, but if interrupted by periods of relaxation, swimming in the pool and rest, it can last even longer. If prescribed for therapeutic purposes, usually the bath is performed once or twice a week, with a number of baths per session that varies depending on the health and reactivity of the subject.
Of course, in case of illness, it is always advisable to consult your doctor before starting treatment.
