"This sauna is amazing! It helped me shake off a persistent chest cold & nasty cough."

"When I went into the sauna at 3pm, I was feeling tired, on the verge of sickness and I had recently sprained my ankle pretty badly. After 20 minutes, the pain and swelling in my ankle subsided and after 30 minutes I had more energy than I had had all day! Once I was out, I felt relaxed, energized and pain free! I would recommend this therapy to anyone looking to improve their health immediately!"
