Spring Gardens remains one of the most innovative addiction detox centers in Florida
If you’ve ever stepped into a sauna and felt the warmth seeping deep into your core, we don’t need to tell you how good it feels. But did you know the time you spend in a sauna offers a variety of health benefits?
That’s why Spring Gardens Alcohol and Drug Detox in Florida includes medically supervised sauna therapy among its many innovative and effective detox therapies. And, like the other holistic options featured in our drug and alcohol addiction detox process, sauna therapy can help you take the first steps on the road to recovery.
We have Finland to thank for the sauna. “The sauna has been a central part of Finnish culture and daily life for centuries, if not millennia,” the renowned PBS series POV, noted when it focused its camera lens on the sauna http://www.pbs.org/pov/
Don’t worry, you won’t have to climb into a pit dug in the ground to experience the benefits of sauna therapy at Spring Gardens luxury detox center in Florida! You also won’t have to worry about what you might find in the sauna, either. Based on what the researchers at POV found out, that’s a good thing.
“Traditionally, the sauna in Finland was used not only for regular bathing, but also for a range of domestic chores and rituals, such as drying flax, preparing malts, curing meat, giving birth and preparing the deceased for burial,” they report.
But even the ancient Finns recognized the healing properties of their saunas. According to POV, “It was also where traveling healers (usually women) attended to the ill, administering baths or massage or drawing blood.”
Fortunately, the saunas themselves along with our understanding of the benefits they provide have evolved over the years.
As Finlandia Sauna, based in Portland, Oregon, reports, spending time in a sauna can:
· Soothe and relax tired muscles
· Relieve tension and stress
· Help to relieve mental fatigue
· Promote healing and releases natural pain killers
Regular sauna use also speeds up your metabolism similar to the way that exercise would and improves circulation, according to the experts at Finlandia Sauna.
What makes sauna therapy so effective as a therapy for drug and alcohol treatment detox, is the fact that heat in the sauna makes you sweat and that sweat flushes toxins and impurities from your body.
“Sauna is the deepest cleaning bath in the world,” Finlandia Sauna reports. “Perspiration induced by a Sauna opens the body's pores and naturally expels impurities and toxins from the body. There are many detoxification programs that use the Sauna daily to rid the body of chemicals. The Sauna has been used to sweat out nicotine, pesticides, and other toxins.”
