The idea that saunas shouldn't be used in the summer is astonishingly common. This is because saunas are commonly regarded as fantastic at warming you up, and therefore you don't need to use one in the summer period. Many people think that saunas are just used to protect those living in Scandinavia from the Nordic chill, however, it’s actually common to have a sauna in a summer house.
Saunas are frequently built close to lakes in the Nordic nations so that visitors can enjoy them in the summer alongside a refreshing swim in the lake. At any time of year, your body can benefit from the sauna's scientifically proven health benefits. Did you know, saunas can even help you cool down in the summer by acclimatising your body to the heat? Even though it is summer, using a sauna can still help you burn calories, lose weight, improve your heart and respiratory health, relax your muscles, and most importantly feel amazing.
Using a sauna to cool your body down dates back to the Roman and Ottoman Empires. These baths provided heated water and hot rooms to bathers in hot Middle Eastern and North African counties. This was to help the body acclimatise to the hot temperatures (before air conditioning) & to reap some of the amazing health benefits.
Don’t let the heat deter you from enjoying a good, soothing sauna session this summer, no matter how hot it gets. Then, to bring your body's temperature down, take a cool shower or a dip in a plunge pool. Your body will be better able to withstand the summer heat after using a sauna in the summer since you'll feel calm and balanced.
When your body temperature rises, tension is released effortlessly from your muscles and joints. Sauna bathing also opens up your pores, aiding the secretion of metabolic waste toxins. This helps to cleanse your body, inside and out, leaving you feeling truly revitalised.
