A workout for circulation
New energy for body and mind
Many studies show that a sauna session has an extremely positive effect on the heart and blood vessels. The heat in the chamber makes the heart beat faster and harder. The arterioles, blood vessels that branch out from arteries, expand and then contract again when they cool down. This results in a wonderful circulation-boosting training effect, which can even help to permanently lower blood pressure.
This means saunas are also suitable for people with a common condition: High blood pressure. However, these people should avoid cooling down in the ice-cold plunge pool. It is better for them to cool down gently in lukewarm to warm water or by taking a walk in the fresh air.
People with heart failure can also enjoy a sauna session, but they should opt for something other than the Finnish sauna: Organic saunas, steam baths and infrared cabins are good options in this case. Saunas can also be used by people suffering from varicose veins, though it is essential that they properly cool down afterwards.
The sauna areas at the thermal baths in Burgenland are all excellently equipped to offer your circulatory system a wide range of wonderful training opportunities. If you want to give your body a special fitness boost, do some exercise before the sauna session. Take a wonderful hike, for instance, or one of the special workout programs at the thermal baths. Whether you want to use the thermal bath’s own gym, try out a whole host of different sports courses, or do a lap of a nearby running and walking area, it’s best to check out the current activity program before your visit!
Treat yourself and your circulatory system to healthy enjoyment!
