Today, I would like to talk about some of the sauna benefits that have been described by Giselle Roedder an internationally well-known health teacher.


The sauna is not just a place to warm up after a swim in the pool. What is the sauna? In short it’s an ancient way of cleansing the body, mind and soul. Its benefits have been enjoyed in many parts of the world for centuries. Among other benefits, people love the stress relief and the wonderful muscle relaxation that sauna brings. You too can take advantage of this ancient knowledge to feel better.

Sauna is a sweating induced by high, dry heat, followed by rinsing or immersion in cold water. The process normally repeated two or three times. The sauna is the only place on earth where we can stand temperatures near or more than 100 degrees. With no humidity to speak of and no restrictive clothing, the body deals with the heat by sweating profusely. This keeps the inner “core” body temperature close to the natural settings of 37 degrees. A very cold rinse or shower or a dip in to a lake or a tub stops the sweating.

The Wonders of Sauna:

The Finns have an expression: “If spirits, tar and sauna don’t help, the disease is deadly”. The old proverb points to the importance of the sauna for good health. The contrast of hot and cold “trains” the body to react quickly in order to adjust to heat or cold condition. This change strengthens overall body fitness. In Finnish writings, the sauna has been referred to as a Fountain of Youth. The list of benefits derived from the sauna is seemingly endless. The following are some of them:

  • Provides deep, total-body cleansing
  • Gives you a younger-looking skin through better nourishment from within
  • Builds up the immune system for overall health
  • Relaxes body muscles
  • Provides detoxification through better watter management within the body
  • Helps to relieve stress 
  • Provides feeling of general well-being

Unfortunately in Australia, it is not allowed to specify other benefits of the sauna (even if it’s written by well know health therapist) so if you would like to learn more about the topic, I strongly recommend to get this book:
