New Beauty Treatment: Bathing in Fermented Sawdust

Coffee enemas? I'll pass, despite the coupons Alex keeps giving to me. When I want to feel pampered, I'll try out this new Japanese spa treatment. It involves sitting in sawdust in a room that reaches 104°F:

As your body is engulfed in sawdust at a temperature of around 40 degrees Celcius, the body is warmed from the core. This activates your internal organs, apparently optimizing metabolism, increasing your immune strength, and improving circulation. It’s also great for easing constipation and even insomnia. The dry sawdust also promotes the release of sweat without clogging your pores where excess dirt and sebum from your skin is also washed away.

Yes, I reckon you WILL pass (something) if you take that coffee enema. Oh help.
I was sort of thinking, too, that I'd like fresh sawdust for my spa time, thanks... until I read the comments and laughed at about half of them! Coming along days later to finally comment does have its advantages! ;)
