Sauna

There are Saunas in both branches of Na-Bua

How does it work?

A sauna is a closed "room" heated by coals. Similar in function to a Steam Bath, only the heat in a Sauna is a dry heat by comparison. The temperature inside a sauna is kept steady with a relative humidity of  between 15 - 30 percent. The heat of a sauna increases the body temperature causing you to perspire. This aids the body in many ways as your pores begin to open, your blood vessels dilate, your pulse speeds up and your breathing may increase. All of these actions lead to easy elimination of toxins from the skin.

Considerations?
