Why do most health professionals say is it good to have a sauna where your head pops out? (a sauna that doesn’t heat your head)Updated 2 years ago

Your body can withstand more heat than the head (brain) can. The most effective way to initiate a natural immune response is by raising the body's core temperature (hyperthermia or fever). This is the body's front line defense against invading foreign viruses and bacteria. In fact, at higher than normal temperatures bacteria and viruses will begin to die off. At higher temperatures, the brain actually begins to be negatively affected, so most health professionals direct their patients to buy the Thera360 Plus for that reason. Therasage has developed the Thera360 series of portable full-spectrum infraRed saunas to efficiently raise your core body temperature (create a false fever) and not affect the temperature of your brain.
