    I am curious about other ways of increasing body temperature, in particular, hot bath or hot-tub. (I assume a typical steam room would be roughly equivalent to a ‘wet’ sauna.) I regularly use a hot-tub that is kept at 107 F. I have not taken my temperature during or after use, but my body temperature certainly rises. Have there been any studies comparing sauna use to hot-tub use?

      I read these studies on sauna use with great interest but still have not been able to find a single sauna facility that allows their Near/Far and/or full spectrum saunas to reach anywhere near 170 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact very few go beyond 120 and the cap based on my calls and visits to numerous facilities is 150. Wondering what others have found ….
