The Holistic Handbook of Sauna Therapy
By Nenah Sylver, Ph.D. 
335 Pages, $34.95

About the Author 

Nenah Sylver has enjoyed a rich and varied career as a Reichian psychotherapist, a holistic health educator, and an internationally published writer. In 1996 she received her doctorate in Transformational Psychology, an interdisciplinary program of bodymind psychotherapy, holistic health, and gender studies, from the Union Institute. 

Dr. Sylver’s last book, The Handbook of Rife Frequency Healing: Holistic Technology for Cancer and Other Diseases (Stone Ridge, New York: The Center for Frequency Education, 2001), explores a safe, non-invasive modality developed in the 1930s that uses frequencies, combined with the latest research in many areas of complementary health. 

Forthcoming books include a work integrating feminism, depth psychology, and the body-mind principles of Wilhelm Reich; and a handbook that studies poisonous chemicals in the home, and presents safe, effective substitutes. Formerly published under the name “Nina Silver,” her writings in holistic health, psychology, feminism, sexuality, and social change have appeared in Natural Food & Farming, Natural Living Today, The New Internationalist, 333 334 The Holistic Handbook of Sauna Therapy Nexus, Off Our Backs, Beiträge zum Werk von Wilhelm Reich (Contributions to the Work of Wilhelm Reich), and the anthologies Journeys of the Heart: Perspectives on Intimacy in America (Bruner-Mazel, 1999), An Introduction to Women’s Studies (Simon & Schuster, 1997), Women, Culture, and Society: Readings in Women’s Studies (Simon & Schuster, 1994), Transforming a Rape Culture (Milkweed Editions, 1993), and Closer To Home: Bisexuality and Feminism (Seal Press, 1992). 

Her volume of poetry, Birthing, was published in 1996 by Woman in the Moon Publications. Dr. Sylver has also been cited in Utne Reader (now called Utne magazine) and The New Yorker, and listeners have enjoyed her holistic health discussions on the radio. In addition to her scholarly pursuits, Dr. Sylver is also a lifelong musician and award-winning songwriter. She looks forward to recording an album of original songs.

This organization shares the research of 20th century dentist Weston Price, who found that the healthiest, cavity-free people ate traditional, local foods (animal and vegetable) that were either raw or pre-digest­ed (fermented, sprouted, soaked or slow cooked); while the sickest ate refined carbohydrates, sugars, and fake foods that caused tooth decay and malformed dental arches in the malnourished offspring of nutri­ent-deprived mothers.

alkalizer-detoxifier, and healthy tanning system


Healing Arts & Wellness Centre Inc.

Lloydminster, Alberta T9V 2Z2, Canada contact: Noel and Pat Livingston, independent distributors phone: 888-870-3933 (toll-free) websites:

Microbiologist Robert O. Young, PhD, who formulated these products from Inner Light, Inc., says that SuperGreens—an enzyme-rich powder of grasses, herbs, and vegetables (1 teaspoon equals about 5 pounds of greens)—when mixed with Prime pH alkaline drops, raises the pH of the system. This facilitates detoxification of the liver, flushes the kidneys and the intracellular fluid, and helps eliminate fat and cellulite. His company’s StarTan air brush system confers a lovely bronzed tan. But it is very differ­ent from a conventional tanning bed, Dr. Young notes: it is safe enough to be used weekly for a year-round tan (at a fraction of the cost) because it nourishes, rejuvenates, and improves the skin with DHA, essential fatty acids, and oxygen (nutrients for the skin and brain).


chapparal capsules, lotion, and spray


Energy Medicine Association 15639 Four Seasons Drive Houston, Texas 77084

contact: Paddy McAlister phone: 281-463-1026 website:

One of the most popular herbs in the Native American medical reper­toire is chapparal, or Larrea tridentata. Larrea produces numerous com­pounds to protect itself against bacteria, fungi, viruses, insects, rodents, and weeds. The very phytochemicals that enable a single Larrea plant to survive up to 11,000 years in the hot, dry, southwestern United States desert—without being riddled with microorganisms, or eaten by in­sects or animals—are desirable to humans. Five patents were granted to a doctor for extracting and purifying the plant’s beneficial constituents while eliminating those that could be toxic to the liver. Larrea is avail­able in capsules, or in lotion and spray for the skin.

Coffee is addictive and dangerous. Even the 7% caffeine in “decaf” causes blood sugar swings and heart arrhythmia, and releases stress hormones.

Bitter herbs promote digestion; chicory root contains inulin (a soluble fiber that nourishes digestive flora); roasted barley has no detectable gluten levels; and there are 65 mg. of alkaliz­ing potassium per cup.Teeccino is also nationally distributed to natural foods stores, the food service industry, holistic health practitioners, and spas.

The body’s dense lymphatic fluid must be moved to eliminate dead cells, infectious microbes, heavy metals, and other waste. Bouncing on the Cellerciser™ utilizes the three-fold forces of gravity, acceleration, and deceleration to provide an aerobic, weight loss-promoting, body contouring workout that is more complete and beneficial than regular exercise (weight training, running, or swimming). David Hall’s portable folding Cellerciser™ is not a typical mini-trampoline or rebounder. Its exceptionally “easy” bounce protects your knees and joints while liter­ally massaging every cell, and revitalizing bones, blood vessels, connec­tive tissue, glands, internal organs, and skin.

Saunas—Custom Builders


Custom companies build saunas individually cut to fit any space, from blueprints, floor plans, or given dimensions. The customer can purchase prefabricated saunas, liners for rooms, or modular, freestanding sauna kits. Saunas can be installed for home or public use; indoors or outdoors; and as part of a room, or as a separate room. Most custom builders also supply heaters, steam baths, and accessories. Some manufacture their own heaters, controls, and doors. The woods vary. Each builder is unique, so ask what they do. Most are willing to travel.

Spa Associations


The popularity of spas has grown in the last decade, thanks to the educa­tional and outreach efforts of spa organizations. Over 50 countries are rep­resented by these organizations, with thousands of members that include-besides day spas, medical spas and resort spas—body care product compa­nies, cruise ships, fitness centers, hotels, medical clinics, mineral spring fa­cilities, spa consulting firms, spa equipment manufacturers, spa magazine publishers, and trade show organizations. Service providers such as physi­cians, massage therapists, nutritionists, and wellness instructors also may belong to spa associations, as well as any interested consumer.  

These associations are devoted to influencing policy for the spa industry, as well as promoting a positive spa experience to the public. They accomplish

these goals through educational literature, seminars, and websites. They may offer information on spa history and etiquette; spa travel specials and cuisine; and members’ products and services, which can include acupuncture, aro­matherapy, herbal wraps, homeopathy, massage, and sauna therapy as well as conventional spa services like hair and nail care. The websites of most spa or­ganizations include a search engine that finds a specific type and location of a member facility, and helps match consumers to a suitable spa.

A spa provides facilities and services pertaining to beauty, fitness, and health. This listing contains a very small sample of English-speaking facilities that have dry saunas, steam, and/or some type of therapeutic pool. Services can include aromatherapy and oil infusions; body and herbal wraps (using Aryu­vedic plants, algae, seaweed or other botanicals); electrolysis; exercise, fitness and yoga classes; facials; hair and scalp care; hydrotherapy (moving water in a pool, often containing therapeutic liquids); many types of massage; mineral water pools; mud or clay baths; nail care; specialized skin care, and more. Re­sort spas are connected to overnight-stay hotels. Day spas may have similar, and as many, features as resort spas, but they do not accommodate overnight guests. Medical spas can be affiliated with homeopaths, naturopaths, nurses, physicians, and/or medical centers; and in addition to traditional spa fare they offer more medically-oriented services such as acupuncture, Aryuvedic medi­cine treatments, chiropractic, dermatology, homeopathy, nutritional consulta­tions, oxygen therapy, and plastic surgery. Medical spas may accommodate ei­ther overnight or day guests.


In the entry that notes which type of sauna is used, “dry” indicates non-steam heat—usually conventional electric or far infrared, though not always— to distinguish it from heavy steam (although some of the dry saunas are made to accommodate hot rocks onto which water can be poured). “Steam” can in­dicate the dissemination of steam from a capsule, so-called “steam shower,” large room, tent, or cabinet. Hydrotherapy, hot tubs, whirlpools, waterfalls, and hot and cold plunge pools are referenced as well; but swimming pools are not. Be aware that some state laws in the US require that whirlpools and simi­lar tubs be decontaminated with chlorine, which is poisonous and can cause respiratory and skin problems in many people.


It is impossible to list every establishment that has a sauna, so consult your local phone directory under “YMCA” (or “YWCA,” “YMHA,” or “YWHA”) and “Health Clubs.” I did not list the chain health clubs such as The Equinox or Health and Racquet Club, or spas found in the following well-known chain hotels: the Biltmore, Doral, Hilton, Hyatt Regency, La Quinta, Loews, Marri­ott, Plaza, Radisson, Ritz-Carlton, and St. Regis—partly because these facilities can be found easily in the phone book, and partly because many of the larger

chain hotels no longer open their facilities to people who are not guests of the hotel. See the beginning of this Appendix for strictly medical treatment facili­ties that administer to people with serious conditions such as cancer and envi­ronmental illness.


Be an informed consumer. Whether you want a day spa, resort, or medical spa, be clear about what is offered before you visit. Due to the widespread use of poisonous chemicals for hair and nail care, I tried not to list establishments with a major focus on “beauty” (unless precautions are taken to use safe ingre­dients)—but please, since everyone has a different tolerance of chemicals and scents, for your own safety and peace of mind, double check. Prices at these facilities can vary widely. Search the internet to see if the spa has a website; a quick look may help you decide whether or not that facility is for you.



Guide to fees

NFG = No Fee for Guests. This pertains to resort spas only. If the spa is part of a resort, people staying at the resort may use the spa sauna, steam, and other facilities without having to pay an additional fee.

FG = Fee for Guests. This pertains to resort spas only. If the spa is part of a resort, people staying at the resort must pay an additional fee if they want to use the spa sauna, steam, and other facilities.

DP = Day Pass. This pertains to day spas (non-resort), and to resort spas that allow non-resort guests for the day. For a (usually) moderate fee, the cus­tomer may use the sauna (and other facilities such as exercise equipment or swimming pool) as much as desired, without having to pay for a spe­cial spa service.

PS = Purchase a Service. The facility allows the use of the sauna or steam room if the customer buys other spa services such as a facial or massage.

SF = Separate fee. There is a separate fee for use of the sauna, steam, whirl­pool, etc., independent of other services. (This separate fee usually aris­es in spas that don’t issue a Day Pass.) There might be a time restriction with this option, so check with the facility; otherwise, an hour-long sau­na can be rather expensive. However, I tried to include only those spas that are generous with their time and reasonably priced.

NFR = No Fee for Residents. This pertains to residential spas only. They do not allow outside guests to use their facilities.
