How Saunas Help with Allergies

Saunas Can Provide the Allergy Relief You Need

Everything’s bigger in Texas, including allergies. That’s because parts of our great state actually go through three tremendous allergy seasons – ragweed in the fall, cedar fever in the winter, and then come the oak, ash, pecan, and elm in the spring. We may love Texas, but let’s face it, the allergies can make us miserable. However, it’s not all bad because a sauna session is just what the doctor ordered. Toss out those antihistamines that keep you feeling drowsy and see just how Finnleo® saunas help with seasonal allergies, bringing relief to sinuses everywhere.

How Saunas Help with Allergies

Runny nose, itchy eyes, headaches, congestion, fatigue, and even facial pain are just a few of the symptoms allergy sufferers have to deal with. If you’ve decided it’s time to find a natural treatment, look no further than a sauna.

With an array of wellness support, a Finnleo sauna can help you:

  • Banish allergens as your blood circulation increases and stimulates sweat glands.
  • Heal when your body is put in a resting and relaxed state.
  • Experience an increased body temperature which strengthens your immune system.
  • Feel the relief as steam opens up nasal passages, clearing congestion and relieving sinus headaches. 

Traditional vs. Infrared Saunas

While both traditional and infrared saunas are excellent for supporting your body and treating allergies, there are a few differences. 

Traditional saunas are hotter, usually between 150 and 180 degrees. They heat the body from the outside in, creating an environment of hot air and steam that encourages sweating and opens the pores. This traditional sauna experience is not just about heat; it’s about the ritual of pouring water over hot stones to generate steam, which many find to be a soothing process. The combination of heat and humidity in a traditional sauna can be particularly beneficial for clearing nasal passages and relieving allergy symptoms.

An infrared sauna is typically set between 120 and 140 degrees. You’ll also find that the heating methods are different as well. Traditional saunas most often use an electric heater to warm a compartment of stones. An infrared model uses heat waves to raise the body’s core temperature which produces the same results with a little less heat. It heats the body from the inside out, offering benefits you’ll love.

Benefits of a Sauna for Health and Wellness

Beyond just allergy relief, saunas offer a myriad of health and wellness benefits. Regular sauna sessions can improve cardiovascular health, aid in weight loss, reduce stress, and even improve skin health. The heat and steam help to open pores, boost immunity, and increase blood flow, leading to healthier, more radiant skin.
