In our front set of locker rooms, you will find our dry sauna – a perfect place to sweat out your toxins before or after a workout. The health benefits of saunas are not a recent discovery. For thousands of years on all continents, numerous cultures have used steam or smoke as part of religious, social, and family traditions. The practice has cleansed the body, reduced stress and heightened spirituality.
Heat from saunas stimulates the production of white blood cells and improves circulation, which in turn promotes healing of infections and soft tissue injuries. Since fevers are the body’s natural defense against bacteria and infection, the artificial fever of the sauna facilitates the healing process. Because viruses and germs do not tolerate heat well, the body can heal itself in the high temperatures of saunas and steam baths.
