Re: Misogi, fascia and stuff

Yes, sauna is basically hot air. Submersion in hot or cold water has a lot more impact than submersion in hot or cold air, though high humidity adds to the impact of air temperature, like Peter said. For example, a turkish bath is also hot air, but it has higher humidity and lower temperature than a sauna.
