Benefits of Aromatherapy
What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils, which are extracted from flowers, herbs, plants and trees, to promote a persons mood and health. These essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream and metabolised in the body, resulting in numerous health benefits. Research findings have shown that essential oils can aid in:
memory recall, alertneses and concentration;
reducing anxiety, tension caused by stress, insomnia, and other similar issues;
fighting against colds;
calming, relaxing, uplifting, or stress-relieving the body;
enhancing the experience of meditation and self-reflection; directly impacting emotional states through the olfactory system;
reducing fatigue and helping alleviate sleeplessness.

Benefits of Saunas
A sauna is used as a source of hot dry heat (although steam is sometimes used) where the occupant can enjoy temperatures of well above 80°C due to the low humidity levels. These temperatures cause the bodies temperature to increase, helping to:
improve circulation, increase your metabolism and relieve internal congestion,
destroy bacteria, viruses and tumors (which can't survive the higher temperatures),
eliminate toxic chemicals, heavy metals, radiation and other toxins from the body,
increase the ability of the skin to eliminate poisons,
provide many of the benefits of exercise while requiring much less exertion,
relax, rejuventate and revitalise the body,
removing the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol,
burn as many as 300 calories in a typical session,
soothe and relax tired muscles,
burn the same amount of perspiration as a 10 kilometer run, or as many calories as you would during rowing for 30 minutes (in an approximately 30 minute session).
