When the body begins to produce sweat via deep sweating, the skin is then cleansed and dead skin cells are replaced. Sweating rinses bacteria out of the epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of the pores has been shown to improve the capillary circulation, while giving the skin a softer-looking quality.
While the social benefit is rarely talked about, it's really actually quite important. The steam or sauna can be a private, personal area of relaxation and solitude. However, sauna can just as easily be a relaxing environment for socializing with family, friends and soon-to-be friends.
In the high temperatures of a traditional or infrared sauna, skin heats up and core body temperature rises. In response to these increase heat levels, the blood vessels near the skin dilate and "cardiac output" increases. Medical research has told us that the heart rate can rise from 60-70 bpm (beats per minute) to 110-120 bpm in the sauna (140-150 with more intensive bathing), and can often sink to below normal after the cooling off stage. With regular sauna usage, we not only train our heart muscles and improve the heart rate/cardiac output, but we also help the body's regulatory system.
Entering a steam shower, stress melts away as the warm, enveloping heat eases both mind and body.
Steam & sauna have been shown to help people recover more quickly from exercise by easing joint & muscle pain and eliminating lactic acid build-up.
German sauna medical research shows that saunas were able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza amongst participants. As the body is exposed to the heat of a sauna and steam (in the case of traditional saunas), it produces white blood cells more rapidly, which in turn helps to fight illnesses and helps to kill viruses.In addition, saunas can relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of sinus congestion from from colds or allergies - especially when used with steam (tip: add eucalyptus to the water for added benefit and overall enjoyment). The steam vapor action helps to clear up unwanted congestion and is a wonderful aspect of the Finnish sauna experience.
