I must admit, until now, whenever I thought of a sauna, I thought of the steamingly hot (or hotter) room, and a bunch of portly men, wearing towels, or the Scandinavian thing where people sit in very little, or less, in a wooden cabin, then run outside, through several inches of snow, and jump into a frozen, or near frozen lake.
What I have now discovered (and its probably been around for a while, in truth) is that there is something called an infra red sauna, which has none of that fun and games, and can also be set to a slightly saner temperature (mind 130-150 is still more than fine for me), and without any of the mess, or effort.
And yes, given the one thing my busted back loves is heat, discovering these, and more critically discovering that the place where I go for my brainwashing sessions, sorry, flotation tank therapy sessions has got one has interested me no end. Now let me say that in real life, I’ve never even seen a sauna, let alone actually been in one, but just maybe…? And yes, an infra red one, with all the ease of use appeals to an old crock like me, totally.
Yes, I love Christmas, and the New Year holidays, as it gives me a much needed break from the strains on my body. But it also means I have to go 6 weeks (instead of 4) without Physiotherapy sessions (Tuesdays were Christmas Day, New Years Day), and the back, after 5 weeks, has started to object strongly to all of this. Yes, to put it politely, my back hurts like hell, even if I try to hide the worst of it at times. Even worse at present, as temperatures have dropped away in last few days, so kind! Even the Flotation Tank option has been closed for the holidays too! But then they announced the reopening today, they mentioned this Infra Red sauna thing, I started to investigate, and…
I must admit, I’m one of these people who will give most things (excluding extreme cold) a try, so I suspect that if possible, I’m going to find out what its like, very soon. Even if its too hot for most of me, I suspect my back will love it!
OK, video time. I know nothing of this group, or the song, this was just one of those purely random You Tube searches, nothing more. But yes, I suspect that men, and maybe a few ladies might enjoy this video, somehow?
