Covering patients with warm blankets, hot stone therapy, swimming in hot natural thermal springs (high in sulphur and minerals) or hot tubs, rubbing the body to generate heat, steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzis, hot showers, hot rooms etcetera have been used by almost every nation on earth for treatment of medical disorders such as body pain, joint pain, arthritis, infections, stress, cancer, injuria, rehabilitation, addictions, detoxification and relaxation.
Only recently has modern medical science been able to determine the physiological and biochemical effects and benefits of heat therapy such as, increased blood flow and circulation, enhanced immune system functioning, detoxification and accelerated healing.
