Dry Sauna

Benefits of Dry Sauna Therapy in Jacksonville, NC

Circulation Improvement
According to Harvard Medical School, your pulse rate can increase up to 30% when you enter a sauna. The high heat of a Dry Sauna increases your heart rate and speeds the blood’s circulation throughout your whole body. This means your blood flow almost doubles! Those with poorer circulation can benefit by moving blood out of their extremities.*Health Benefits
The heat causes your body to react much as it would if you had a fever, which activates your immune system and antibodies.

Dry heat promotes the sloughing off dead skin cells, helping to improve skin conditions and give you a youthful glow.

Those suffering from respiratory conditions, such as asthma, can also experience relief as a Dry Sauna alleviates chest congestion.*

Greater Flexibility & Less Muscle Stiffness
Dry heat enhances the oxygen and nutrient supply to your muscles and deep tissue, relieving stiffness and soreness. Flexibility increases in the Dry Sauna, so it’s a great place to do light stretching before or after a workout. Those with arthritis also find relief as well.

Toxin Release
Heat in a dry sauna will cause your pores to open as you sweat. Thus, impurities and wastes can be drained from the body via perspiration. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and one of its jobs is to flush toxins. Cleaning your pores is good health!

As blood vessels expand in dry heat and oxygen increases in the body, people tend to feel invigorated. Many use this as a good time to relax and even meditate.

*Warning* If you have serious heart or respiratory problems, abnormal heart rate, blood pressure control problems, etc. check with your doctor before using a sauna. You should also consult your healthcare provider and/or pharmacist to ensure none of the medications you are on inhibit your body from sweating. Avoid drugs, alcohol and food before using the sauna.

When Using Dry Sauna Therapy:

  • Before getting into the sauna, take a shower to cleanse your skin. This will clear your pores and prepare them for sweating and regulating your body temperature while in the sauna.
  • Start out slowly. Stay only as long as you feel comfortable. If you start feel dizzy or light headed, carefully get up and exit. Rinse your face with cool water. Extend your time, as you feel comfortable to experience the full detoxification benefits.
  • Follow your sauna session with a luke warm or cool (not cold) shower. This will rinse off the toxins and salt. You want to avoid towel drying them back into your skin. The cool water following your hot sauna exposure will also reinvigorate your lymphatic system.
  • Drink plenty of filtered water to replenish fluids lost in the sauna.
  • Do not sleep in the sauna.
  • Do not consume alcohol or drugs prior to entering the sauna.
  • If you have a respiratory or other serious health condition, consult your doctor before using the sauna. Consult your physician or pharmacist to ensure you are not taking any medications that inhibit your body from sweating.
