HOW IT WORKS
Pain is often related to poor blood circulation in the body. Increasing blood circulation through exercise, tea, sauna or hot baths helps move oxygen-rich blood throughout the body, into the muscles and joints and aids our body in reducing inflammation in painful areas. One study out of Finland showed that levels of C-reactive protein – a bio marker for inflammation in the body were lower in those that used sauna more regularly. In fact, it was a function of how often they used a sauna. The more regularly the 2000 men in the study used the sauna, the less CRP they exhibited in their body.
