In Finland, saunas are a part of everyday life and have been for over 2000 years. People have been going for sauna baths for millennia in order to reap the benefits and enjoyment of a sauna. Many confuse the various types of sauna with steam rooms but there are various differences in how they work. Most saunas rely on dry heat with little humidity, whereas steam rooms use less heat and more humidity.
All you need is a 15-30 minute sauna to soothe away your aches and stresses of the day. Just be aware of dehydration from the loss of fluids. It’s easy to get the balance back again by drinking a couple of glasses of water after a sauna bath. And you may even lose a little (water) weight!
Saunas, and in particular infrared saunas, have become very trendy with today’s busy and chaotic lifestyle. When we work hard at the gym, we need a quick fix to unwind and keep our body healthy. Saunas can be a part of such a routine, before or after a workout.
You can either go to a public sauna, get a sauna built into your home, or even choose a portable sauna.
Whichever you choose, there are a few accessories that will improve your experience of saunas. In this article, we’ll look at several useful accessories you may want to keep in your gym locker, or by the entrance to your home sauna.
