Benefits Of Steam Sauna

Did you think that steam baths and sauna are modern concepts? You could not have been further away from the truth! The word ‘sauna’ is derived from an old Finnish word meaning bath or bathhouse. Ancient saunas featured a fireplace in which stones were heated to very high temperatures. After this, water was thrown over the stones to create steam. The traditional Finnish smoke or steam sauna differed from a modern one in the sense that a pile of rocks were heated by burning wood up to 12 hours. Most modern saunas use electric or gas sauna stoves to heat the rocks or stone.

Despite the massive changes brought about since the ancient times, the end-result remains the same. Steam saunas induce sweating which helps keep your body healthy. Sweating helps rid your body of its wastes, and regulates the critical temperatures to help keep the skin clean and hygienic. Sweating has always been considered beneficial for human health since ancient times primarily because of its relaxing effects. Even doctors and scientists agree that regular sweating restores good health through the removal of toxins.
