Why does a sauna stay promote our health?
Regular sauna visits have a positive effect on our health and strengthen our cardiovascular system. During a sauna visit, the skin surface heats up and the temperature inside also rises. This activates defence cells and dilates the blood vessels, the heart rate increases and the breathing rate also increases while the muscles relax. During a sauna session of about 15 minutes we lose almost half a litre of sweat. This process has a positive effect on our health, as the sweating washes out waste products. Another positive effect on our health during a sauna session is the blood circulation in our mucous membranes, which has a positive effect on our airways and makes it easier for us to breathe deeply. Those who sweat regularly in the sauna reduce their susceptibility to colds.
Proper sauna use in the sauna also stimulates the circulation and in this way promotes our health. Through the temperature changes from the heat in the sauna and a concluding cold shower in the plunge pool (the so-called Kneippen), our cardiovascular system is trained and thus the supply of our body with oxygen is improved.
But a visit to the sauna does not only have a positive effect on our physical health, it also improves the appearance of our skin, as the heat improves the blood supply to the skin and supplies it with more oxygen. Due to the subsequent cooling, the blood vessels narrow and are trained by the interplay of hot and cold and appear rosy and fresh.
A visit to the sauna also has a positive effect on our mental health, as our muscles and our entire body relax and our well-being is increased - just relax and switch off.
Kneipp - for our health
Kneipp is about the interplay between warm and cold. It is well known that Kneipp strengthens our immune system and has a positive effect on our health. In the sauna village of the Parktherme Bad Radkersburg one heats up his body in one of the eight saunas and afterwards it goes briefly into the plunge pool. The circulation of blood is stimulated by this Kneipp - the change of pleasant warmth followed by a cold shower in the plunge pool. Kneipping in the plunge pool causes the body to adapt more quickly to changing influences and thus strengthens the immune system.
Special infusions in the sauna
In the finnish sauna, in addition to the Bad Radkersburger sauna ceremony, special infusions led by our sauna masters ensure sparkling wellness moments. Experience a special experience with scents and creams in our sauna village and promote your health.
