Muscles need to be relaxed and stretched after they are exercised in order to promote healthy recovery. When muscles are worked out, their tiny fibres break apart. When the fibres heal, the muscle gains mass and becomes stronger. This process is expedited by muscle relaxation, which occurs in response to a hot environment.
Relieves joint and muscular tension
The heat from saunas and steam rooms soothes your nerve endings and warms and relaxes your muscles. Very important after sport, especially skiing! They also minimise joint pain as well as arthritis, migraines, and headaches due to the high heat environment.
Sweating removes toxins from the body. Sitting in a sauna of steam for just 20 minutes can rid the body of an entire day’s sweat and all of the toxins that come with it. Also handy if we over indulge on our holidays!
The heat causes the body to release endorphins that reduce the feeling of stress in the body. After you will feel rejuvenated and content.
Clears the skin
Steam clears the skin of impurities. It improves circulation in the whole body, which gives you a healthy glow and will make your skin look and feel great.
Promotes healthy blood flow
Capillaries dilate when exposed to the heat of a sauna or steam room, so blood flows freely and easily through the whole body, transporting oxygen everywhere you need it and leaving you feeling refreshed.
