The powers of deep heat, with Emma O’Kelly

We’re hearing a lot about the benefits of cold-water therapy, but what about heat therapy? Writer and avid cold-water swimmer Emma O’Kelly joins Liz on this episode to take a deep dive into the health benefits of heat.

Emma covers the history of saunas in Nordic bathing traditions, and shares more on what studies say on the benefits of deep heat for our physical and mental health.

Liz and Emma also discuss sauna rituals, the different kinds of saunas Emma encountered (from ice to peat bog!), and how to practise cold and heat therapy safely.
