New Technology solves age-old problems
Sure, the soothing warmth of a Cedrus sauna feels great, but it's more than relaxing. Medical research has shown a vast number of benefits associated with the use of saunas such as improving circulation, cardiovascular conditioning, removal of toxins, improved skin conditions and caloric consumption.
Improved Circulation/Cardiovascular Condition:
As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate thus improving circulation. Blood flow during whole-body hypothermia is reported to rise from a normal 5 to 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
Injured muscles will repair faster as large amounts of oxygen rich blood circulates through the body, improving the body's immune system. Drainage of toxic materials is accelerated. An oxygen rich blood supply helps to restore the body's natural balance.
"Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise."
