The popularity of Finnish (Scandinavian, Nordic) walking is due to its powerful healing effect on all organs and systems of the body, confirmed by many scientific studies.
- maintains muscle tone in both the upper and lower parts of the body, using about 90% of all muscles in the body and, accordingly, burning twice as many calories than normal walking.
- Improves heart and lung function, ideal for posture correction and neck and shoulder problems.
- Finnish walking improves cerebral circulation in general (due to oxygen saturation of the blood from physical activity in the fresh air) and especially in the shoulder girdle.
- When working with sticks, the tension of the muscles of the shoulder girdle significantly increases the blood flow in this area and stimulates the production of the hormone of joy – serotonin. So, actively working with our hands, we not only carry out the prevention of strokes, but also fight depression.
