Why is sea dipping and Sauna good for you?
Not only does the process of repeatedly dipping in the sea and using our sauna feel amazing and give you an unbeatable natural high, it also has some long lasting and potentially profound health benefits...
A comprehensive study found those who sauna bathed 4-7 times weekly were 66% less likely to develop dementia and 65% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s compared to those who did not.
Studies have found frequesnt sauna users lower their risk of cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and stroke. As well as helping with a host of none vascular conditions.
Sea swimming and sauna use have separately been proven to dramatically improve mental health wellbeing. Combine them into one big pot of endorphins, dopamine, community, exercise and mindfulness and the results are profound.
And so much more...
