"The sauna helped to keep us cold and flu-free all winter!

My son, husband, and I have been taking daily saunas since Christmas, and managed to avoid any household winter colds and flus despite many around us being sick! We love your sauna!!!" -Katherine H.

"Better than "Cold Kicker" Tonic

Especially during the colder months we have used the sauna regularly (2-3 times a week), but in the event we feel a tinge of a cold or flu creeping in we immediately jump into the sauna at least once a day. That has stopped all such events before they have happened. We love the benefits and the brief "get-away" that using it is!" - Linda C.

"Khoa Huynh PharmD FAARFM

Wow! That was a hard winter with the cold and flu virus. I saw so many patients coming thru my pharmacy with symptoms of the virus. Cold, wet winter, no sunlight, low vitamin D may be a huge factors this year. Luckily for me, I have the Sauna Space. I used it twice a week and I did not get sick at all."
