No other sauna has a heating system like a Medical Sauna™. Our Rapid Internal Heating System™ supports constant effective heat that promotes sweating as the sweat glands in your body open up. This allows you to lose water weight and may also relieve bloating. A Medical Sauna™ helps prevent water retention by stimulating the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids that helps remove water from the extremities.
Additional research indicates that when your heart rate rises, your metabolism increases. An increase in metabolism prompts your body to burn more calories and in turn, lose extra pounds by converting fat into energy.
Medical Saunas™ are more than just saunas. They were designed to help heal your body. Because of all the doctors that came together to help make Medical Saunas™ possible, and the over 100+ years of combined experience they all provided, there are lots of medical benefits you will receive by using it daily.
Because Medical Saunas™ are based purely on documented studies, we have included the appropriate studies below with links for further research and verification.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and body mass loss (BML) induced by thermal stress in a dry sauna.
The smallest BML was noted in underweight subjects; students with normal weight lost more weight, whereas the greatest BML was reported in overweight and obese subjects. Persons with a high BMI are at higher risk of dehydration. The proposed equations for calculating BML based on a person's BMI can be useful in estimating the amount of fluids that should be replenished by both men and women during a visit to a dry sauna.
