Health & Beauty Center: the sauna
In a word, health and beauty. The sauna eliminates toxins and relieves stress, preparing you for the rigours of daily life. High temperatures cause sweating, eliminating water and, with increased sebacious gland function, also toxic substances.
Raising body temperature has beneficial effects on muscles which become relaxed and therefore reduces tension. In the sauna, metabolic rate and heart beat increase dilating blood vessels and therefore increasing blood flow. The heat of the sauna also has beneficial effects on sufferers of respiratory complaints, increases muscular healing, has a sedative effect on nerve endings and improves circulation.
The beauty farm at the Hotel Le Ginestre, one of the best equipped in Puglia, offers an “organic sauna”, defined by its cloud of mountain flower scented perfume.
