Spa Facilities at Syndale Park Personal Fitness

The Syndale Park Spa is popular with our members, offering a variety of therapeutical benefits.

Heat is the most obvious sauna benefit. The organ affected most from the heat is your skin (yes, your skin is an organ). The heat causes blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood demand to the skin. The increased volume of blood vessels occupied by the same volume of blood causes blood pressure to drop. Your heart will beat faster and more efficiently to compensate. This is why time in a sauna includes a mild cardiovascular workout that is comparable to walking.

The heat also causes profuse sweating. Sweating is good: it helps eliminate toxins from the body and stimulates the function of other organs.

Muscle relaxation occurs with the increased blood flow and distribution of oxygen


Weight Loss
Good news and bad news! You will lose weight from taking a sauna. The bad news is that most of the weight will come right back. We are basically big water balloons, being made up of about 70% water. Saunas are a great way to sweat some of that water out - this can drop your weight by pounds (a good thing). As soon as the water is replaced it will be retained (a bad thing). You should have some liquids available as soon as your sauna is finished. Many people prefer juice to water so they replace missing minerals at the same time. Some good news ... weight loss from a sauna can be more than temporary. The increased heart rate in a sauna will burn calories. Some studies estimate about 300 extra calories are burned in a typical sauna session. This has been equated to the amount of calories burned when you are walking ... not bad for just lying there relaxing!

Skin Treatment
There is no better treatment for the skin than a sauna. This is a way to clean and rejuvenate your largest organ from the inside out. The skin is meant to be a pathway for the elimination of toxins and waste material from your body. Creams, deodorants, oils, dead skin cells, etc will clog skin pores and lock waste in. Skin conditions like acne, pimples and blackheads can be caused by clogged and infected pores. Heat from a sauna opens the pores and sweat will flush out the toxins. The newly cleaned-out pores have a long-lasting effect on the ability of your skin to function. Dilated blood vessels increase the flow of oxygen and fluids to skin cells. Cleansing eliminates dead skin cells and other material exposing a new layer of fresh, clean, healthy cells. Your skin not only looks and feels younger, it will also function more efficiently.

Mental Health
It's great to have a mental escape from the day-to-day grind. This alone is enough to improve your outlook on life, but there is more to the story than that. Endorphins (feel-good chemicals in the brain), are released due to the increase in cardiovascular activity. This combination would give anybody a positive attitude adjustment for the day!

Sweating does three main things for your body. It's a first line of defense against infection. Skin helps regulate the body temperature and also helps eliminate toxins. Skin has been called the 'third kidney'. Sweating is a major means of eliminating heavy metals from your body.

Muscle Relaxation
Traditional wisdom is that muscle soreness after a workout comes from excess lactic acid. More recent evidence indicates that it is more likely due to microscopically torn and swollen muscle cells. Whichever is the cause, a sauna will help relax the muscles and ease the soreness. The process of sweating helps rid the muscles of excess lactic acid. Dilated blood vessels increase the flow of oxygen to muscles, reducing swelling and aiding the repair of tears.
