Saunas and steam rooms are fixtures in gyms, spas, relaxation destinations worldwide and even some homes. In April, you can experience the benefits of a Sauna & Steam Lounge at The Spa of Essex. Follow our Facebook Fan Page for progress updates and special offers.
The benefits of sauna & steam rooms range from relaxation to weight loss and pain management to cleansing. Saunas and steam rooms may provide emotional and physical relaxation benefits. Wet and dry heat simulate sedative effects that generate feelings of calmness and relaxation, and some people who suffer emotional or mood disorder may find relief with regular trips to saunas or steam rooms. When the muscles have been relaxed and blood is circulating optimally, it is easier to sleep at night. Many people who are tense or have poor circulation snore, jerk, toss, and turn while sleeping.
Diet and exercise are certainly important components to pair with sauna and steam room usage for a successful weight loss plan. However, the heat from a sauna produces one effect that is similar to what happens when a person exercises. The heat increases a person’s basal metabolic rate by a considerable amount, which helps the body burn calories better throughout the day.
Heat has a pain relieving effect due to its ability to create more effective blood flow. Painful conditions caused by inflammation such as arthritis and fibromyalgia can be temporarily managed through heat treatments like those found in both saunas and steam rooms.
Saunas and steam rooms promote detoxification and cleansing of the skin and body. One of the ways the body flushes out toxins is by expelling sweat. The heat causes the pores to open up and when sweat starts coming out, it will flush out oil, bacteria, dirt, makeup, or any other residue that has collected in the pores. People who flush out their pores regularly will notice an improved complexion. Another cosmetic health benefit of regular sauna usage is the possibility of reducing cellulite.
In addition to the health benefits, saunas and steam rooms promote overall well being; mind, body and soul. After leaving the sauna and steam lounge and resting, individuals express feeling refreshed and revitalized. People who use heat therapy regularly do not complain of feeling unwell as often as people who do not use them.
It is encouraged to educate yourself regarding the differences between the two heat rooms and evaluate your specific health needs before choosing your experience. Our team members are available for any questions or concerns you have and can assist you in choosing the right heat treatment for your needs.
