Sauna Life

We’re obsessed by the huge benefits gained from regularly practicing hot and cold therapy; the use of sauna can be so much more than simply sitting in heat! 

Keep up to date on the latest information from the world of saunas and discover how amazing sauna practise is for our physical and mental wellbeing.

Heat Therapy

The concept of Hot and Cold Therapy has been around for a long time. On the hot side of things, evidence of cave saunas dating back to 2000 BC has been found, however, their use would have been more for surviving freezing temperatures than just relaxation. Saunas these days are usually associated with Finland. Despite a population of just over 5.5 million people, Finland has an impressive 2 million saunas to share between them  (which is an impressive ratio!)  while ‘Finnish saunas’ are now found in gyms and spas almost everywhere on Earth.

Top health benefits of heat therapy

  • Fitness — Red blood cell count increases. Heat tolerance increases

  • Promotes muscle growth — if done after exercising

  • Prevents injury – speeds up repair of injured muscles

  • Detox – Flush out heavy metals and toxins through sweat

 

Cold Therapy

Now the cold side: Ice baths have most likely been around for much longer as no special structure is needed – all it takes is a winter dip in a frozen lake or flowing river. Running hot water is a relatively new luxury on the scale of things, only becoming available to the public within the past two hundred years – bathing in cold water would have been the only option for most up until this point. The Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus is one of the oldest surviving medical texts, and was created around 1600 B.C – this text made numerous references to the use of cold as therapy.

Top health benefits of cold therapy

  • Burns fat — generating heat burns calories

  • Immunity — increases white blood cells

  • Depression — releases positive brain endorphins

  • Muscle — improves endurance​

  • Reduces inflammation — for treatments like osteoarthritis or back pain

  • Sleep — cold triggers sleep hormones
