Twenty four hundred years ago «The Father of Western medicine» Hippocrates came to the idea of inducing artificial fever.
Ancient Indian practitioners used regional and whole-body hyperthermia together with yog practices to feel ever young. During the day Asians heated by the sun beams large Amethyst, Tourmaline and Jade stones to accumulate the thermal power of the sun light which was transferred to the body while sleeping on the stones in the night. Koreans built the floors of Amethyst and fired wood beneath to generate special "stone heat". Turkish baths, Russian banya and Finnish sauna are the other samples of traditional heat applications for general health and wellness.
