So, if you find yourself working up a sweat at the gym, be sure to soothe your overworked muscles in a sauna after your workout. It could help your muscle’s recovery process.
There are also studies that suggest that regular sauna usage may help to lower cholesterol. Previous research has suggested that saunas bring the same benefits to the heart as exercise does. Frequent sauna usage has been even been associated with lower risk of cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure.
Last of all, saunas provide a perfect escape. Usage can help reduce stress and clear the mind, while the immersive heat soothes you both mentally and physically.
