Health Benefits of a Sauna

Everyone loves a sauna, right? But did you know that aside from being a great way to chill out they also offer numerous health benefits? A visit to Chariots – Europe’s largest gay sauna – could be just what the doctor ordered.

Benefits of a Sauna:

Saunas can be used as a means of calming the body and relieving it of stress. The heat from a sauna soothes your nerve endings, warming and relaxing muscles which, in turn, relieves tension from your body – helping to reduce joint pain. This is especially beneficial for those who suffer from conditions such as arthritis or painful headaches and migraines.

If you experience bouts of insomnia, a sauna can also help to encourage sleep. The heat from a sauna prompts the body to release endorphins – a feel-good chemical that reduces the effects of stress – relaxing you enough to sleep better. In addition to this, when you leave the sauna and begin to cool down, your body also releases increased levels of melatonin. The effect of this helps you to feel even calmer and promotes a deeper, more restful sleep.


And let’s not forget about the benefits for your skin! A sauna is ideal for muscle relaxation and lowering blood pressure whereas a steam room will help with overall detoxification of the body. Here at Chariots gay sauna in London, we provide a sauna and a steam room, so the choice is yours -or, better yet, use both. Saunas use dry heat whereas steam rooms use moist heat. Both open up your pores and increase blood and lymphatic circulation, which will effectively aid in softening your skin and give you a healthy pink glow – so not only will you feel good, but you will also look rejuvenated too.
