Overall health and fitness must include flexibility as a very high priority. The Far North Wellness sauna is a perfect place to work on increasing your flexibility. Studies have shown that a warm muscle stretches far better than a cold one and retains the elasticity.
Tissues heated to 45C and then stretched exhibit a non-elastic residual elongation of about 0.5-0.9% that persists after the stretch is removed, which does not occur in these same tissues at normal temperatures. Thus 20 stretching sessions can produce 10-18% increase in length of tissues so heated and stretched."
