Sauna therapy provides a relaxing, safe and comfortable atmosphere for stress relief. There are actually two ways it can release stress. First way is the natural relaxing feeling you get in the sauna. In both wet and dry sauna you will feel this. Your heart will start to beat a little harder and you'll quickly notice an increase of body circulation to the skin and around your body. The second reason is because the increased circulation and heat to our skin causes more chemicals to be released when we start to sweat. These chemicals build up during the day, weeks, months, years of stress and are released in sauna and their production is slowed down.
