Helvetia Thermal SPA Sauna
The Sauna was born in Finland where it was already practiced since 1100 in a hole dug in the ground and then covered. The Finnish sauna, all covered in wood, has a temperature above 80 ° C. High temperature has the most evident effect of sweating, a natural mechanism that has the function of regulating body temperature, keeping it as close as possible to 37 ° C.
Through sweat, water and, by increasing the activity of the sebaceous glands, toxic substances are eliminated. Furthermore, the increase in body temperature has beneficial effects on the muscles that relax and reduce their tension. During the sauna metabolism and heart rate increase, vasodilation occurs and the blood becomes less “viscous”: these reactions facilitate blood circulation in the body.
