Most of us will come down with a cold at some point in the year, especially over the winter months. We know that saunas are great for relaxation and easing aches & pains but is a sauna good for a cold?

If you’ve got the sniffles or a bit of a cough and you’re wondering are saunas good for colds, below is information on this along with a list of all the health & wellbeing benefits you can enjoy when using infrared saunas regularly. Found—Space has been supplying top quality saunas to Australians since 2008, making us Australia’s longest-running infrared sauna company.

When installing your sauna (which we offer free of charge throughout Australia) we provide you with tailored usage guidelines based on you and your goals to help you make the most of your sauna. Keep reading to discover the benefits of using infrared saunas and information on whether saunas can help with colds.

Are Saunas Good For Colds?

Using an infrared sauna when you have a cold is safe (provided you don’t have any other health conditions that you may need to seek advice on from a health professional) but does a sauna help with a cold?

Research suggests that infrared saunas can help relieve symptoms of a cold and can also help you to recover quicker. So, why are saunas good for colds? The way that infrared light penetrates the body enables it to push out heavy metals and toxins from deep inside the body. When we’re sick, often our bodies sweat to help get rid of the illness – infrared saunas can work in the same way.

Infrared saunas can also help to improve sleep and we all know that rest and plenty of good sleep always helps us to recover from colds. When using a sauna with a cold, it’s super important that you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. If your body is aching in particular areas you can also target those areas with the Found—Space Movable Pure Wave ceramic heaters to help ease the pain. A good idea is to use essential oils in your sauna to help clear congestion too.

So the good news is that saunas can help with colds along with providing many other health benefits including:

  • Weight loss
  • Reducing stress
  • Clearer skin
  • Reducing inflammation & pain
  • Aiding muscle recovery
