Wish I had one for when the Winter cold won't leave my bones. Drawback...cost of heating it.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I didn't necessarily think a sauna could help with weight loss, but the removal of toxins and opening of pores would be helpful. I have psoriatic arthritis, so maybe it could help with my joints too. I think I will give it a try.

I live in the northern US...and when I was doing a lot of swimming at the Rec Facility on the college campus where I worked, I often used the sauna for about 10 minutes after swimming. Not to make myself sweat...but NOTHING warms you up better and dries you off before you bundle up and head out in the winter weather to wait for your bus!!

I miss having access to a sauna at the gym.

Sauna's wont help you to lose weight, that's an old weight loss misconception. However, hitting the sauna can help clean out the pores of your skin. It can help you reduce stress because it helps you to relax. It can help relieve achy muscles. It might help people relieve chronic pain.

As long as you realize that hitting the sauna wont help you lose weight, saunas can have other health related benefits.

There is a sauna in the locker room of the gym and I have recently thought about giving it a try. What are the benefits and drawbacks of doing so? Any tips or hints about what to do/not do in there? Thanks!
