A sauna serves many purposes... one is to help you drop water weight... there are many others.

Some people just like to sweat... yeah, its wierd, but yeah... they feel it helps them relax or cleans them of the toxins by flushing them out thru their pores... sure, whatever cranks your crane.

IMHO, its more recreational but can be functional... if it helps an athlete wind down/relax after a crazy workout, great... so would a dip in the jacuzzi hot tub.

On the other hand, IMHO, a dip into an ice bath would be more functional for cardio recovery... but a tad bit less enjoyable
