Investigating the Effect of Single-session Sauna Use on Body Temperature

Whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) to an internal temperature of 38.5 C (101.3 F) using an infrared heating device has been associated with significant reductions in clinical depression. This prior work utilized a WBH medical device that is manufactured in Germany, is not FDA approved, and is not widely available. The goal of this initial pilot project is to ascertain whether an infrared sauna, the Curvey Sauna Dome, which is readily accessible (i.e., can be purchased by consumers in the US) can be used to conduct WBH that achieves an internal body temperature of of 101.3 F in healthy volunteers.
