The "Aufguss" is a spectacular sauna experience of German origin designed to increase sweating. The "sauna master" throws water onto hot lava stones, producing a cloud of steam which immediately increases the level of humidity in the sauna. At the same time, he makes circular movements with a towel to circulate the air, mixing the hot air at the top with the cooler air at the bottom and thus raising the ambient temperature at the level of the participants. This rapid increase in both temperature and humidity stimulates the sweat grands.
Essential oils are added to the water to perfume the air and stimulate the limbic system, and frozen fruit is distributed at the end of the experience, creating health benefits for the whole body.
