First of all, when conducting bath procedures, we must follow the principle of gradual increase in the intensity of the temperature effect. In other words, when you visit a bath you do not need to immediately rush into the steam room, where the high temperature is already maintained. At first it is desirable to spend some time in the waiting room, to adapt to changing conditions in the bathhouse, and only then you can expose the body to high temperatures. After going through all the procedures, again, it is necessary to sit in the waiting room for a while, and only then to gather on the way out.
The parameters of body temperature when visiting a bath change significantly only in the paired compartment. For example, in a therma with relatively dry air, body temperature can rise to 38 - 39 ° C. However, this change in this indicator is short-lived and very unstable. For the first 2 - 3 minutes of being in the steam room, only the skin covers get warmed up, and only after 5-10 minutes the temperature of the internal organs begins to increase slightly. After leaving the steam room, the body temperature changes again to normal levels, and this process is much faster if you plunge into the pool with cool water or take a cold shower.
The state of health when visiting a bath is also largely dependent on changes in blood pressure. It is established that at the initial stage of taking bath procedures, the pressure is slightly increased, but then, after visiting the pair department, it decreases. This is due to the fact that with the action of high temperature, the blood vessels expand, thereby decreasing blood pressure.
Another important indicator of well-being when visiting a bath is the frequency and depth of respiratory movements. During the passage of bath procedures, the depth and frequency of breathing increases. The amount of blood that can pass through the heart, increases about 1.5 times. Accordingly, the pulse rate in the bath increases by about 20 units compared to the original value. In the paired room, the pulse can vary up to 100 - 120 beats per minute.
After only 10 minutes after the beginning of the adoption of bath procedures, the accuracy of the movements is significantly improved for the person, the working capacity of the musculoskeletal system is quickly restored, the speed and endurance are increased. In those people who rarely visit the bath, changes in basic health indicators are much more pronounced than those who regularly undergo a bath procedure.
However, when visiting a bath in some people (especially those who have any deviations in health), the health indicators may change for the worse. For example, sometimes when visiting a steam room there may appear difficulty in breathing, lethargy, a feeling of heaviness in the muscles, excessive sweating even after a bath, a decrease in appetite and the appearance of insomnia. Particular attention should be paid to those people who suffer from such diseases as endo- and pericarditis, a previous myocardial infarction, hypertension, as well as any illnesses in the acute stage. With any deterioration of well-being during a bath visit, you should immediately stop further procedures, go out to the dressing room and relax sitting in a comfortable soft chair.
Monitoring of the health indicators should be carried out at all stages of the adoption of bath procedures. In no case should you visit a bath to drink alcohol or smoke, because these factors will provide an even more significant load on the cardiovascular system of your body and can lead to a sharp deterioration in well-being.
