HEALING WITH HEAT
Sauna’s heat is good for the heart
Taking 2–3 sauna baths per week is enough to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by 20% compared to those sauna bathing only once a week. The risks may decrease by up to 65% the more one sauna bathes.
Laukkanen, Khan, Zaccardi & Laukkanen 2015
Sauna bathing improves sleep quality
A study investigating the connection between sauna bathing and sleep saw a 70% increase in deep sleep during the first two hours and 45% increase in six hours. There was a statistically significant decrease in the participants’ staying-up time after sauna bathing.

Sauna bathing is exercise
The heat of the sauna makes the heart pump blood faster, expanding the blood vessels and relieving the heart.
Brunt, Howard, Francisco, Ely, Minston 2016
Sauna bathing improves memory
Sauna bathing twice a week decreases the risk of dementia by one fifth compared to those sauna bathing only once a week. The risk is up to 60% less for people sauna bathing 4–7 times a week.
Laukkanen, Kunutsor, Kauhanen & Laukkanen 2016
Sauna bathing cherishes the skin
The heat of the sauna multiplies the amount of blood pumping through superficial veins, which boosts the skin’s metabolism. The skin feels nourished, maintains moisture and stays soft and elastic.
Sauna bathing treats muscles
Sauna is a great place for relaxing tense muscles. However, sauna bathing before exercise prevents muscle pains and increases muscle mobility afterwards.

for energy-efficient sauna bathing
15 to 20 minutes are enough to enjoy the healing impact of heat
Start bathing as soon as the sauna is ready – MyHarvia reminds you if needed
Renew sauna stones regularly; the sauna room heats up faster
Lower the temperature – already 70°C (158°F) generate good bathing experience
If your sauna has a drying valve, close it during sauna bathing
The heat of the sauna is often used to heat up the building. The vast majority of the sauna’s heat transfers through the glass door and structures to other parts of the building. Most of the sauna’s heat is used for heating of the building if heat recovery or air heat pump is in use.
