Why The Heat?

  • Muscles, fascia and connective tissue become more elastic, allowing for greater flexibility with less chance of injury
  • Promotes sweating which assists the detoxification process, using the body’s largest elimination organ, the skin
  • Blood becomes thinner which clears the circulatory system
  • When the body is between three and five degrees above normal temperature, T-cell output from the thymus gland is multiplied 20-fold.T-cells fight infection which in turn keeps the immune system functioning properly
  • Warmer temperatures produce a fluid-like stretch that allows for greater range of motion in the joints
  • Heart rate becomes elevated which improves the cardiovascular system (heart and lungs)
  • Warm muscles burn fat more effectively. When we stretch, the fat has no room to sit so it redistributes to the blood stream which we then use as energy
  • Capillaries respond to heat by dilating. This allows more oxygen to muscles, tissues, glands and organs, helping in the removal of waste products
  • Higher temperatures improve the function of the nervous system, meaning that messages are carried more rapidly to and from the brain or spinal cord (you think clearer)
  • Improves strength because proteins can be utilised more effectively
  • Speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids
  • Provides strengthening of willpower, self control and determination through the challenging environment
