The benefits of steam rooms and saunas are far-reaching and scientifically proven, especially for those that are training lots and want to ensure they are helping their body to recover post-workout.
Here are some key reasons why you need to steam and sauna your way to better health, and which venues you have complimentary access to with Privilee!
Muscles need to be relaxed and stretched after exercise to promote healthy recovery. When muscles are exercised, their tiny fibres break apart and when the fibres heal, the muscle grows in size and strength. This process is expedited by muscle relaxation, which occurs in response to a hot environment such as a sauna or steam room session.
Relieve joint and muscle tension
The heat from saunas and steam rooms soothes your nerve endings and warms and relaxes your muscles - super important after exercising! They also minimise joint pain, arthritis, migraines, and headaches due to the high-temperature environment.
After spending time in a sauna or steam you can expect to feel rejuvenated as the heat causes the body to release endorphins that reduce the feeling of stress.
Promote healthy blood flow
Capillaries dilate when exposed to the heat of a sauna or steam room, so blood flows freely and easily through the whole body, transporting oxygen everywhere you need it and leaving you feeling refreshed.
