The purpose of the sauna is to relax the muscles after massage but also to release toxins through the pores broken up by bodywork. Sweating is one of the body's natural purification methods and the Thais have traditionally used herbs in the sauna to assist in this process. The Herbal Sauna uses 32 different herbs as well different aromatic herbs may be added to achieve particular purposes or to address particular needs.
In fusion in water, the herbs are boiled in a pot beneath the client. Once the steam starts to fill the sauna tent, the client enters the tent to steam for 15 - 30 min. The steam opens the pores, allowing the herbal vapors to enter the skin and lungs to draw out toxins through perspiration.
Traditionally, the Herbal Sauna is one of the most efficient methods of ridding the body of toxic wastes. The highly aromatic medicinal herbs quickly absorb into the bloodstream and deliver therapeutic powers. The treatment has detoxifying effects as well as a very relaxing, soothing experience. There may be contraindications for some clients.
