A sauna is a room in which people aim to relax in dry heat, provide a range of major health benefits, including skin care, muscle relaxation and detoxification. It may provide benefits for cardiovascular health that resemble those derived from exercise. A sauna is typically a room heated to between 70° to 100° Celsius or 158° to212° Fahrenheit. Traditional Finnish saunas usually use dry heat, with a relative humidity that is often between 10 and 20 percent. In other sauna types, the moisture is higher. Turkish-style saunas, for example, involve a greater level of humidity. A sauna use can raise the skin temperature to roughly 40° Celsius or 104° Fahrenheit. As the skin temperature rises, heavy sweating also occurs. The heart rate rises as the body attempts to keep cool. It is not uncommon to lose about a pint of sweat while spending a short time in a sauna.

How does a sauna work?
The sauna has two basic elements: the structure and the heater.
Structure: This type of sauna is made of wood. The spacious interior room is equipped with benches lining the sides at different heights. The entire interior is finished in wood and the heater used to heat the sauna is usually in the center. The floor is constructed of solid treated wood. The floor grill is made from thermo magnolia or thermo aspen wood.
Heater: The heater raises the temperature in the sauna to a warm 80-100ºC. There are several heater options on the market. In general, heaters for saunas are electric: they warm up the stones that radiate the heat inside the sauna. These stones are the traditional way to heat this type of sauna.
Benefits of the Finnish or dry sauna

Beyond its cultural and social aspect, the Finnish sauna is a tool that has important benefits for physical and mental health.
Detoxification: One of the main benefits of a Finnish or dry sauna is that it eliminates toxins, something the body does naturally when it sweats. The high temperatures of the Finnish sauna trigger a deep sweat, which eliminates a large amount of toxins to help purify the body Skin care: High temps and sweating do more than just detoxify: they also help remove dead skin cells. This also helps with cellular renewal and skin care.
Improved immune function: By accelerating the body’s detoxification processes, a dry sauna helps boost several of the body’s systems, including the immune system.
Improved breathing: The high temperatures inside a Finnish sauna help to reduce congestion. The dry air opens the airways for easier clearing of any congestion in the respiratory tract.
Muscle relaxation: The high temperatures inside the sauna combined with the cold-water baths afterwards help to relax muscles. This is true for anyone who uses a sauna, but it is particularly useful after a workout or training session.
Prevent fluid retention: Sweating does more than just eliminate toxins: it also helps the body get rid of excess liquid. This helps the body run more efficiently and can aid in weight loss.
Reduces stress: Last but not least, another benefit of Finnish saunas that shouldn’t be overlooked is that they help to significantly reduce stress. The combined effects of both the detoxification and muscle relaxation as well as the dry sauna ritual itself help users de-stress.
