Note from Robin :
What is thermal therapy? It’s a combination of hot-cold treatments that have cleansed the body and relaxed people in Northern Europe for centuries. Start hot. In a sauna, the temperature of your body rises, eliminating toxins. Next, hit the cold pools. This causes your body to release adrenaline, and your heart rate to increase. Once you rest a little, adrenaline is replaced by endorphin, making you feel relaxed, warm and fuzzy. This works as well during the summer months as it does in the winter months.
