The more typical dry sauna is the Finnish sauna. You have an enclosed space with a heater on the floor that heats special rocks. When it becomes too dry, you just pour some water over the rocks for instant steam and humidity. Temperatures in a dry sauna may approach 200 degrees Fahrenheit! But, because the humidity is only a few percent, and the bather's perspiration evaporates quickly, these high temperatures are tolerable.

Sauna Benefits (reported):
• Soothes & relaxes tired muscles
• Aid in relieving mental fatigue
• Relieve tension & stress –helps many get a more restful sleep
• Provides a cardiovascular workout- heart rate increases in the sauna
  creating a demand for more oxygen, which in turns burns calories
  (up to 300 a day possible) and provides a mild workout for the heart.
• Increases metabolic rate & improves circulation
• Temporary relief for arthritic pain
• Sweat out toxins and impurities from the body
• Relieve allergies and sinus congestion

Caution: People can lose up to a quart of water during a 20 minute sauna,
therefore, drinking fresh juice or water before, during , and after the sauna is
highly recommended.
