Why I love Saunas or Steam Rooms

Yes...i love saunas.and .I'm in the saunas 2 or 3 times a week..since in the winter sometimes i feel that skin  can be drying ,and sweating in saunas gives moisture to skin ,we know the skin is the largest organ in the body .And regular sweating restore good health through the elimination of toxins..
and according to expert says what are the benefits of 
  • They cleanse the skin. The heat opens the pores allowing all the dirt and grease to come out. Sweating also helps flush out any toxins and the increased blood flow promotes the healing of any skin cuts, sun burn etc. This makes saunas great as part of a detoxing program.
  • It decreases your chances of catching cold and flu as your increased body temperature tricks it into thinking you have a fever which in turn stimulates your internal organs, especially the immune system.
  • The heart rate increases from the temperature of a sauna or steam room which can be the equivalent of doing physical activity like taking a brisk walk. They can also help with weight loss as you can burn several hundred calories per session. However, they are not replacements for actual physical activity. Combine it with a healthy regime for the full benefit.
  • Steam rooms in particular are great for respiratory problems. The steam and warm air loosens all that nasty mucous from the lungs and throat, as well as relieving any inflammation and swelling.
  • They can be very good for relaxing after a hard day at work, and loosening muscles after physical exercise. This makes them ideal for reducing stress and recharging the body.

Sauna in Tokyo

There are some important safety issues to be aware of before you rush to a health spa. Temperatures can be very high in saunas. Only go in if you can comfortably cope, and though the suggested session is usually between ten and twenty minutes, leave if you are starting to feel ill or too hot. Also, make sure you are well hydrated before, during and after. Finally, because saunas and steam rooms increase the heart rate if you have any blood pressure, heart issues or are pregnant, you may want to get a medical opinion before using them....
