Hi all, just wondering if anyone has tried sauna therapy for neuropathy pain?

Hi @ecc79, I have not tried one but I've read about it and posted some information in another discussion here:
I don't have pain with my neuropathy but I have thought about getting a smaller infrared sauna not only for neuropathy but for "warming up" in the Winter here in Minnesota. Are you considering getting a sauna for therapy?
Hi John, thanks for the quick reply. I am looking into sauna therapy for PN. Trying to research and see if there is real benefit or not. Thanks for the links. As long as it doesn’t increase pain I can certainly justify one for the warming up effect also as getting through these Canadian winters can drag on and I also find myself looking to warm up somehow.
I'VE HAD ADVANCED PN FOR YEARS WITH NO SUGGESTIONS TO CONTROL VARIOUS SYMPTOMS (PAIN, INSTABILITY, ETC.). MY WIFE HAS A VERY NICE/LARGE INFRARED SAUNA. I'LL TRY IT. THANKS. JOHN

Hi @juanito, It's been awhile since you've last posted so I thought I would check to see the your wife's infrared sauna helped with your pain and other symptoms. Do you mind sharing an update if you are still following Connect?
I've used a red-light therapy for several years from ledtherpylights. I was assured it would work. I bought the leg wraps and long wrap to use on my neck. It cost several hundred dollars. I called her a year later to say it wasn't working. She suggested I use it just on my feet and assured me again that it DOES WORK.. Actually, IT DOESN'T WORK. Or at least it didn't work on me. After 3 years the bands are wearing out. I did see some of the equipment on a resale site for less than I paid. It might work for some people.
