Integrative Medicine (IM) and/or Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) have been developing around the world. Author and colleagues have continued the management of Shikoku division of Integrative Medicine Japan (IMG) for years. One of the treatments of IM and CAM would be thermal therapy, which has categorized into two groups with A Warm-Water Bath (WWB) and Sauna Bath (SB). SB includes dry sauna in Western countries and Waon therapy originated from Japan. SB shows the reduction in cardiac preload and afterload by thermal vasodilation for patients with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). Thermal therapy would be useful for further development of sauna and IM from the perspective of integrative healthcare.
