"Give me the power to create a fever and I shall cure every illness."
HYPOCRATES (460 - 377 BC)

The sauna has been a part of the American Indians, Japanese and European way of life for over 2,000 years.

This age old tradition provides the following range of therapeutic benefits:

Increases and strengthens the immunity system.

Deep, total body cleansing and detoxification.

Increases circulation.

Improves heart circulation.

Has a positive effect on the arteries.

Releases heavy metals from the body.

Reduces colds and flu.

Relieves chronic respiratory conditions system such as hay fever, asthma and bronchitis.

Helps regulate high blood pressure.

Reduces muscle tension and pain.

Has a beneficial effect on arthritis and rheumatism.

Relieves stress.

Improves sleep.

Has a balancing effect on the psyche and emotions.

Provides younger looking skin through better nourishment from within and accelerates the healing of acne and similar skin problems.

Increased circulation carries off metabolic waste products and provides aching and tired muscles with more oxygen. Saunas and steam baths provide the best way to deeply cleanse the skin.

Regular baths increase circulation which encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to the skin enhancing its tone, texture and colour. Active perspiration cleanses in depth the dirt from the deepest pores of the skin, flushing out embedded dirt and bacteria.

Applying cold water to the skin immediately after the sauna or steam activates the elasticity of the skin to maintain a fresh and beautiful skin.

Sauna and steam baths play a major role in eliminating toxins such as alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, sodium and potentially carcinogenic heavy metals including cadmium, lead, zinc and nickel. Such toxins accumulated in the system are normally removed from the body through perspiration.

Saunas and steam baths increase the bodys detoxifying and cleansing capacity by stimulating the sweat glands.

Saunas create a fever reaction which can kill viruses and bacteria and increase the number of white blood cells which strengthens the immunity system important for increasing resistance to infections and viruses. High temperature during infection helps combat the growth of viruses.

Many doctors believe this Artificially induced fever can have great potential in the prevention of many diseases, including cancer.

The saunas deep penetrating heat provides an overall massaging effect which reduces tension and increases muscle flexibility and soothes tired and aching muscles. This allows the release of tension and stress which enhances general well being.

Saunair has researched the construction and health benefits of herbal steam filters and infusion. The specific benefits of their use in detoxification and the effects on general well being were studied for over 5 years. It is of utmost importance that the equipment in saunas and steam rooms does not produce any toxicity. All Saunair equipment is manufactured from quality marine grade stainless steel which prevents the equipment from deteriorating and eliminating any harmful toxins which materialise under heat.

In January 1995 the University of Sydney selected a Saunair manufactured sauna heater and steam generator to carry out a research project at the Equine Performance Laboratory. Our equipment was chosen due to its "toxic free" qualities, particularly with steam as we purify the water entering the steam machine through a water purifying system and do not add any chemicals to soften the water.

Dr Joachim G. Fluhrer B.S. (Syd), a Doctor in Biological and Environmental Medicine runs the largest clinic from Manly Waters Private Hospital has recommended Saunair steam detoxification treatment for a number of his patients. Saunair works with a number of doctors in the field of detoxification and works closely with the Chinese Ginseng and Herb Company enabling us to prepare a comprehensive list of herbal treatments through our Herbal Steam Filter. Eucalyptus, tea tree and many other oils may be used in the herbal steam infusion.

The Saunair Herbal Steam Filter relieves the symptoms of colds, sinus congestion and other respiratory ailments or allergies, poor circulation, tension headache and acne (as heat softens the oil plugs that block skin pores).

A three year program of research at the National Institute of Nutrition Laboratories, Japan has clearly demonstrated that heavy metals such as cadmium and lead can be secreted in large quantities in perspiration.

"I and a team of researchers constructed a small cubicle of plastic sheeting by means of which we researched and analysed the types and quantities of metals eliminated in perspiration when the temperature was raised from 30oC to 40oC. We compared these results with the contents of perspiration under direct sunlight. The results clearly showed that when perspiration literally drips off the body lead and cadmium can be eliminated in larger quantities than through urine. Perspiration plays a natural role in regulating the density of heavy metals in the body. Perspiration is good for health and our bodies need to perspire freely for 1 hour a day."

Dr Kazumasa Suzuki M.D. is a graduate of the Tokyo University of Science and has carried out research in zoology at Milan University, Italy. He is presently chief of pathology and nutrition at the National Institute of Nutrition Laboratories, Japan.

In recent medical studies, the doctors state that if you keep your body temperature to 40oC for a period of time, you may destroy cancer cells.


Perspiration is essential in regulating the temperature of the body, and it also has the function of eliminating wastes that cannot be treated by the kidneys and have accumulated in the body. The latter is important in maintaining good health. Briefly speaking, wastes are filtered through the kidneys and then discharged in the form of urine. The kidneys purify the blood by filtering about 2,000 litres (the equivalent of about 10 oil drums) of blood per day. When the wastes in the blood increase, then the load on the kidneys rises and this is where perspiration plays a necessary and important role.
