Step into the sauna of your choice and take a deep breath. You start to feel the heat raise the temperature of your skin, your heartbeat quickens, your blood vessels begin to dilate, and droplets of sweat naturally form on your brow. Your body is now eliminating toxins and you feel your shoulders release their tension. The first step in the thermal cycle is pure heat.
Duration: 10 to 15 minutes
Benefits: stimulates the immune system & eliminates toxins
Fully submerge yourself into the coldest of pools or plunge under an icy waterfall. Feel the energizing effects of the thermal shock. Your pores tighten and your body begins producing adrenaline. The second step in the thermal cycle is glacial and one-of-a-kind.
Duration: 10 to 15 seconds
Benefits: releases adrenaline & closes pores
Allow yourself to rest. You feel at peace as you sit by a fire pit or in a hammock swaying in the breeze. As your body recovers, endorphins — the bliss hormones—replace adrenaline. The third and last step of the thermal cycle will make you want to start all over again.
Duration: a minimum of 20 minutes
Benefits: produces endorphins & a profound sense of calm
