Carried out by Dr Giresh Kanji, the research at Masey University in Wellington showed that immersing oneself in a sauna not only reduced the intensity of pain related to a headache, but also worked to minimize its duration.
Mr Mouw, who owns West Virginia-based Almost Heaven Saunas, said: “We’ve always known about the health benefits of regular sauna use, and the benefits are well-documented. For instance saunas are an excellent method of reducing stress and are terrific for detoxification because they encourage the release of toxins through the skin as a result of the intense heat in the sauna.”
“In addition, regular sauna use strengthens the immune system, improves circulation, causes cardio conditioning, and more.”
Mouw continued, “It’s certainly nice to see more scientific studies being carried out to highlight these benefits both within the medical community and the general public at large.”
