When one thinks of a spa treatment, their mind generally thinks of saunas, steam rooms and Jacuzzis. And while we offer a wide range of other spa treatments at our award-winning facility, it is probably fair to say that our spa baths are some of our most popular offerings.
At Almaz Salon and Spa we are proud to have been one of the first spas to offer a range of different spa baths as standard and we are happy the quality of these baths continues to enhance our overall spa experience. If you are looking for an oasis of calm and luxury without breaking the bank then you could do far worse than getting in contact with Almaz Salon and Spa today. Their commitment to spa excellence allied to the central location makes them the perfect option for a spa bath that will leave you looking and feeling your best in no time at all.
The Finnish sauna that we offer at Almaz Salon and Spa is a cut above the rest. It is perfect place to relax and unwind. This winning combination is not to be missed. However, our Finnish style sauna is much more than a hot room with a view. The natural cleansing characteristics that it possesses mean that it can benefit our clients in a whole host of ways.
Benefits of Regular Sauna Treatments
Aside from being a most unique way to relax, saunas also have a number of very practical, and often overlooked benefits, they include:
Sauna treatment can effectively remove toxins from your body through inducing sweat. This is the perfect way of ridding your body of unwanted, and potentially, harmful chemicals that have developed.
Aid Weight Loss
While saunas themselves will not make you thinner, they can greatly contribute to you overall weight loss if enacted properly. On average, a 20 minute sauna session at 170 degrees Fahrenheit can burn up to 500 calories through increasing your heart rate and metabolism.
Improve your Immune System
Saunas can directly improve your immune system by helping to produce white blood cells. White blood cells allow the body to fight against ailment and disease. Regular sauna users are better equipped to deal with illness and can heal faster from injuries.
Difference between Steam Rooms and Saunas
The difference between a steam room and a sauna can be summed up as wet versus dry. While this may appear a little simplistic, the basic point rings true. Steam rooms are wet and have a high level of humidity while, in general at least, saunas tend to be drier.
Steam rooms tend to be airtight spaces where humidity generally builds to 100. This makes it the perfect location for a person with respiratory problems and related illnesses.
