Saunas and steam baths have been used for centuries by cultures around the world to bring about detoxification. Traditionally, saunas have been used to improve mental clarity, to diminish pain and promote longevity. In the past few years, hyperthermic (sweat) therapy has been studied quite extensively and several papers on this subject have appeared in the scientific literature.
Through this research, it has been shown that saunas greatly assist in the elimination of accumulated toxins. (For references please see our research file in the CHWC FIR sauna suite).
