We complete your treatment at Brovad Sands Lodge Spa with a complementary steam bath and sauna, which can also be taken as a treatment separately if one prefers to just have that. Sweating is the body’s natural way of eliminating toxins through the skin – relieving the burden of the liver and kidneys. When a person is exercising, the sweating they produce is not as effective as it would be in a sauna or steam bath since exercising will activate the sympathetic nervous system, which inhibits the elimination of toxins.

There has been some evidence which supports those who claim to have found relief from the pain of a chronic condition through sauna/steam bath use. Some of these conditions include back pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, PMS among many others. Using sauna/steam bath as part of a therapy program can possibly eliminate the need for prescriptions, or at least work with them to provide comfort and relief from symptoms
