2. Total body relaxation
If you’re feeling stressed to the max (or even just a little), spending some time in a sauna may help you feel more relaxed. The simple act of sitting in a quite space without having to attend to any obligations is relaxing in and of itself; but that’s not the only reason why using a sauna helps promote relaxation. It turns out that when you are exposed to high temperatures, your body releases endorphins, those feel-good hormones.
The increased production of endorphins helps you achieve deep relaxation. It also helps to eliminate the buildup of lactic acid in your muscles, which tends to make you feel tense. The combination of doing absolutely nothing for a period of time combined with the increased production of endorphins means that you can achieve total relaxation from using a sauna. So if you are in need of some relaxation, consider spending some time in a sauna.
