In view of current developments pertaining to coronavirus, we believe that offering our services is now as important as ever. Studies from universities and research bodies worldwide have confirmed sauna bathing’s significant efficacy in boosting a person’s immune system. (Sauna science links are coming soon to this website.)
A virus of this type is inactivated 100% within minutes when exposed to temperatures of 138°F or above. This means that any surface-born virus will not survive in a wood-fired sauna that is typically heated to 170-180°F, be it on a person’s skin or any other surface.
If a virus has caused an infection in the lungs, sauna bathing is not an effective remedy for a disease and its symptoms.
Any person who shows respiratory symptoms is strongly advised not to participate in a group sauna session.
SAUNA BATHING BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Studies from many reputable research bodies have confirmed that sauna bathing can be a significant factor in boosting the immune system! We will be posting abstracts and links to sauna studies on our website, soon. Here are two of them.
“There is […] evidence that sauna exposure could boost the immune system, which may partly explain why sauna baths reduce susceptibility to common colds and prevent infections in healthy individuals.”
“This trial was to test the hypothesis that sauna bathing can reduce the incidence of common colds. Twenty-five volunteers were submitted to sauna bathing, with 25 controls abstaining from this or comparable procedures. In both groups the frequency, duration and severity of common colds were recorded for six months. There were significantly fewer episodes of common cold in the sauna group.”
HOW WE MAKE SURE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A SAFE AND SANITIZED SAUNA
1. Heat. The sauna room disinfects itself by way of heating up.
2. Cleaning. We have re-doubled our efforts to disinfect the sauna room, the changing room, and all parts of the facility that may be touched by our customers, before and after every rental.
3. Time. Surface-borne viruses do not survive for more than a number of hours on most surfaces.
4. Ozone. Spa Fleet now sports the latest technology approach to disinfection: the Scandia Powerzone – an automatic ozone sterilizer, which deactivates 99.99% of virus, bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungal spores in 60 minutes. (If you wish to operate this equipment during your rental period, the sauna needs to be connected to 110v power via an extension cord.)
