Sauna in the tropics? Print E-mail
The tropics are the perfect place to Sauna. The heat of the sauna stimulates an internal release of toxins, as well as exfoliation of the skin surface. The skin is the biggest organ of the body. Sweating can be one of the most effective ways to cleanse and purify the body. Heat opens the blood vessels, capillaries, and relaxes the muscles, fascia, and internal organs. Cold temperatures constrict the vessels. Alternating between the two can cause a pumping action that helps the body eliminate deep toxic build up. The skin feels soft and renewed, the whole body invigorated & the spirit re-charged.


There are all kinds of established benefits from sauna.

The following are some of the most significant health advantages.

During a sauna session, your heart rate increases by 50-75%. This provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise. The increased cardiac load is the equivalent to a brisk walk. There is a nominal effect on blood pressure because the heat also causes blood vessels in the skin to expand to accommodate increased blood flow.

Blood vessels become more flexible and there is increased circulation to the extremities. During a sauna, blood flow to the skin increases to as high as 50-70% of cardiac output (compared to the standard 5-10%). This brings nutrients to subcutaneous and surface tissues resulting in glowing, healthy skin. Saunas induce sweating to provide a comprehensive cleansing of the skin and sweat glands.

Profuse sweating enhances the detoxifying capacity of the skin by opening pores and flushing impurities from the body. Sauna in conjunction with massage, loosens fatty tissue and repairs cellulite.

Some other benefits include: Pain relief from arthritis or tired and sore muscles. Sauna is an excellent treatment for respiratory problems. Profuse sweating produces healthy skin and a clear complexion.

A Sauna can provide a relaxing and enjoyable environment to help you kick back and unwind... .
A place to find peace of mind, relaxation and contentment.
