Sweat Therapy Audio (STA) is an audio recording designed to be listened to with a personal audio player using headphones in a Finnish-style sauna. STA combines meditation, music, and sweating while the participant is encouraged to confront personal challenges. Music was produced and performed by Sam Greene and Alex Rivera
Slip on your headphones and get in the sauna. Sit back and relax, get into the heat, and go off into your altered state of consciousness.
Sweat Therapy Audio combines three ancient wisdom practices – meditation, music, and sweating while Dr. Colmant encourages you to confront your personal priority challenge. Sweating procedures have been used throughout the world for thousands of years to help people gain greater physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Examples include the Finnish Sauna, the American Indian Sweat Lodge, and the Russian Bania to name a few. A sweat session is a powerful way to mark the beginning or completion of a personal journey or other personal commitment to change. It is also a great way to help keep your life in balance and harmony.
Sauna bathing is beneficial for the prevention and treatment of some lung, heart, and skin problems. It promotes deeper sleep, pain relief, muscle relaxation, and has been helpful in treating insomnia and arthritis. It also promotes positive effects on feeling states.
