Strengthening your body’s natural defenses
In the fall and winter, regular visits to the sauna are beneficial to your body and spirit. They strengthen your body’s defenses, promote your overall well-being and make your body more resistant to illness. Sauna sessions also have a purifying effect that improves circulation.
Regular sauna sessions followed up with the application of cold have been shown to strengthen your body’s natural defenses and train your body to adapt to changing temperatures. The dry heat in the sauna expands your blood vessels. When you cool down afterwards, they contract. This prevents colds since bacteria and viruses have less of a chance of spreading. Many viruses and bacteria are unable to tolerate high temperatures, which in turn prevents them from spreading.
Intense sweating is beneficial for your skin. Nutrients and oxygen can be transported more. Your skin cells recover faster as a result. Metabolic processes are stimulated and your skin is deeply cleansed. Proper body care is important after sweating. A refreshing shower afterwards is particularly beneficial. At the same time, it is important that the natural pH of 5.5 is maintained and that the skin doesn’t dry out. Our shower gels with their valuable, skin-friendly care substances improve tolerability and leave your skin soft to the touch. Our sauna peelings can also be used as a complement, either directly in the sauna before the infusion or after showering. The fine sea salt crystals produce a restorative peeling effect. The peeling increases skin circulation, promotes purification and leaves your skin silky smooth.
Finally, a body cream, body lotion or skin oil balances your skin again. They help to restore the skin’s fat and to store moisture in the skin.

Sauna infusions are becoming increasingly popular when it comes to sauna sessions. Infusions provide an additional dose of stimulating heat and, for reasons of tolerability, are first performed towards the end of one’s stay in the sauna. The cooling evaporation of the sweat on your skin is interrupted by the sudden increase in humidity inside the sauna. This makes your skin perceive an increase in heat.
The beneficial effect of the infusion is enhanced with enriched essential oils. Depending on the essential oils used, our Naturally Healthy sauna infusions give you a feeling of release, revitalization, balance or calm.
