Try the health benefits of a sauna!

Relaxation and wellbeing
Popularity in saunas are huge at the moment – and with them, a more Finnish approach to wellbeing.

While Denmark and hygge had its heyday as the latest lifestyle buzzword in 2017, this year we’re apparently looking more towards its Nordic cousin: Finland. But the Finns have been doing saunas right for centuries – there are even more saunas than cars in Finland and they’re a crucial part of its citizens’ day-to-day lives.

A visit to the sauna is more than just relaxing; it seems to have real heart and cardiovascular benefits, as well. A two decade-long study found the more saunas Finnish men and women took per week, the longer they lived. The Finnish also have one of the highest life expectancy in the world.

Here are our top 6 reasons to have a sauna:-

1. They are a natural stress relief suitable for most people

2. Saunas relax muscles and soothe aches and pains

3. Good for the skin and hair

4. Saunas can help you sleep better

5. They will improve cardiovascular performance

6. You can burn calories – yes even when just sitting down!

Plus, you can enjoy all these benefits and more here in our Aqua Spa…no need to travel to Finland!
