A recent study (Univ. of E. Finland, studying 1,621 men over 25 years) suggests that regular trips to the sauna can significantly reduce high blood pressure. Those who did two to three sauna sessions/week were 24% less likely to have hypertension, and four to seven visits cut the risk by 46%. The researchers noted: “This is good news…A healthy thing that is pleasant to do, and involves no sacrifice.”
