Service Description

🗓 SOCIAL PRESCRIBING DAY 💪❤️‍🩹 Social prescribing is a healthcare approach that connects people with non-medical activities, groups and services in their community to meet practical, social and emotional needs that affect their overall wellbeing. Sauna is a tool which many of our guests use to improve their wellbeing; physically, mentally and socially. The mental health benefits are abundant and have been the topic of many conversations during sauna sessions. The physical benefits are also well researched with evidence showing improvements in cardiovascular health, countering chronic inflammation and reducing the risk of dementia and chronic pain. We are opening up sessions for NHS workers, in particular NHS Social Prescribers to come and enjoy the sauna free of charge to sample the benefits and open the conversation of prescribing some heat! If you work for the NHS and would like to attend then please send an email to from your NHS email address with you time preference (see below) and we’ll be in touch. We’re taking part in this nation wide campaign in collaboration with @britishsaunasociety and @saunaoursouls to raise the profile of sauna for improving overall wellbeing. #socialprescribing #nhs #nhsstaff #nhsworkers #nhssocialprescribers #mentalhealth Location: The mobile sauna is now located in St Ninians Beach, Bigton, Shetland. The beach is accessible by bus, bicycle or on foot. If you take the bus, Bigton is the right stop with a ten-minute walk to the sauna.
