We sauna enthusiasts understand the endorphin build up as a (great) big part of our sauna experience.
As we settle onto the sauna bench for round one, and begin to experience the sauna hot room, our heart rate goes up and many of us feel a “rush of adrenalin” akin to exercise or being chased by the cops.
Then, during cool down, after a plunge into a cold lake or a 360 degree turn under our backyard showers, we often look up at the sky and the trees and are overcome with a wave of good feeling: the endorphin rush of “ahhhhhhh, I feel great!”
But just like a child building up for Christmas morning, for many of us, the endorphin rush of sauna begins while our clothes are still on. The excitement of sauna can start the morning before our sauna session, and can build to a crazy frenzy while the sauna stove heats to temp.
