Health Benefits of Sauna Bathing

Over 200 years ago, Hippocrates, the ‘father of modern medicine,’ wrote that sauna bathing could “cure any disease.”

It is said to be the oldest form of healing on earth. 

Nutrients and minerals in sweat are essential to maintaining the collagen structure of the skin—but the long-term benefits of a regular sauna regimen keep your insides young too.


A recently published longitudinal study conducted by the University of Eastern Finland (2015) revealed “people who visited a sauna 2-3 times a week had a 24% lower risk of [cardiovascular related] death”—and a 40% reduction in mortality rate with a sauna use rate of 4-7 times per week (click here for source).

Sauna Bathing:

  • Detoxifies blood and skin (from toxins absorbed in our daily environment!)
  • Increases metabolism
  • Stimulates immune system
  • Cleanses the cells
  • Reduces excess weight/water retention
  • Relaxes the muscles
  • Promotes blood circulation
  • Increases the production of white blood cells (!)
  • Releases endorphins
  • Tones the cardiovascular system
