The health benefits of the sauna


The sauna is a tradition that comes straight from the northern countries and particularly from Finland.

An ancient and universal tradition

The practice dates back almost 2,000 years in Finlande. Some say that the Vickings themselves practised this ritual. Today, it is widely practised in Northern Europe, France, Russia and even Japan.

The many benefits of the sauna

The heat provided by volcanic stones rises to between 60°C and 80°C (for those who are used to it) and provokes immediate reactions involving the cardiovascular system (the heat dilates the blood vessels, which increases the heart rate) and the endocrine system to a considerable extent.

The sauna is generally well tolerated by both children and adults.

According to numerous scientific studies, regular use of the sauna is not harmful to health. On the contrary, it brings relaxation and well-being, while strengthening our natural defences, helps to fight against stress and infections, energises our circulatory system and has a toning effect on the skin.
