Health Benefits

Healing with heat is ancient. Saunas have been used in Finland for thousands of years and have many health benefits.

Relaxation & Mental Health

: The heat relaxes your muscles. When your physical body relaxes, the mind and emotions tend to follow suit. Endorphins are released and cortisol decreases alleviating anxiety and depression.

Cardiovascular Health

Sauna use has a similar effect on the body as moderate exercise. Studies in Finland have shown that regular sauna use can decrease your chance of stroke, lower blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health and reduce risk of dementia & Alzheimer's disease. 


Heat shock proteins in our cells are activated by the intense heat. These proteins reduce inflammation in our bodies and aid recovery from injury.
