Trip to the spa may cut down on risk of stroke

New studies point to a relaxing way to cut down your risk for stroke - just head to the spa.

Researchers in Finland recently found that people who spent time in the sauna four to seven days a week showed a 61 percent lower risk of having a stroke than people who went just once a week.

Previous studies have linked sauna use to a reduced risk of high blood pressure, dementia and death from cardiovascular disease.
