I find this machine very intersting to say the least. I agree, that sauna or steam heat does a body good, and I've never met a massage I didn't like. BUT,
my idea of steam or sauna is an actual room.
Is it just me, or do you my fellow A Netters agree that being enclosed in this thing is akin to being cooked alive? Now, I love flying. Which for many people causes claustrophobia. So, it may seem ironic, that while I love the feel, smell and experience of flying, I am actually scared to be in one of these spa capsules. Anyone out there ever used one of these things? And what have been your experiences. When I see these things, I think of 007 being trapped in one and some evil villan saying: "Goodbye Mr. Bond! I expect you to die instead of being pampered!" Experiencing sauna force heat in a confined device? Is this safe?
I compare the "capsule" to the infamous Traction Table; where James Bond almost got stretched to death.Thunderball 1965

I have seen this kind of thing at malls in S. Florida. The people who I see in it seem VERY comfortable. If I ever hit the lotto I'll give one a try, but at this point it would be like me 'test flying' a Gulfstream V.

TedAce: Actually, you could check this out before you win the lotto. Since you live in the S. Florida area this spa is conveniently located for you and the prices seem not too bad. When I make my next Miami Beach visit, I will check out the spa and see this thing in person. However, I still will probably be a wuss and pass on it. But, they have an hyperbolic oxygen thingy. And increased oxygen supposedly does a body good, and maybe some of the spa attendants/operators will be hot athletic young women! One can hope.
