Back to your birthday suit you go! We’ll strip it down nice and simply for you-- saunas are good for your health.
Fitness gurus especially, take note. Saunas actually promote better workout recovery. It was discovered that infrared saunas both decrease delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) as well as penetrate the neuromuscular system to promote recovery.
In addition, sauna use helps to lower blood pressure, improve heart health, reduce some types of chronic pain, promote mental health, AND lower cholesterol.
It’s no wonder Swedes love their saunas!
Your post-sauna routine may be equally as important though and crucial to optimizing health benefits. After you sweat it out, take a cold shower to close your pores up again.
It is also essential that you replenish your electrolytes and rehydrate with water! After all is said and done, pop into the freezer for some ice cubes to drop into your glass of iced tea. Now that’s what we at Midsummer Tea call a rejuvenating evening.
