Several factors such as inflammation, accumulative toxins, long-term stress, lack of sleep, over-exercise, dehydration, hormonal imbalances, or gut imbalances can result in chronic pain.
For patients with Fibromyalgia or other types of chronic pain looking to reduce discomfort, heat therapy can help diminish pain, reduce stress, and promote feelings of well-being.
How are Saunas effective at treating Fibromyalgia?
Raising skin temperature that high enhances the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (it responds to external and internal stress).
When you sit in a sauna and activate your sympathetic nervous system with therapeutic heat, this system responds by releasing several pain-relieving, mood-elevating hormones such as beta-endorphins, serotonin, and epinephrine.

This heat therapy relaxes your muscles and dilates your blood vessels, increasing your blood flow. The improved circulation helps your body’s natural healing processes, easing the stiffness and swelling that are common with this condition.
