With your help, University of California San Francisco scientists hope to determine how a single sauna session affects body temperature. This study is being run by Ashley Mason, PhD, of the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine.

What does participation involve?

Participation involves three in-person, weekday visits to the UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at 1545 Divisadero Street to complete questionnaires and partake in a sauna session (~2.5 hours).

The visits will last approximately 30 minutes, 3.5 hours, and 15 minutes each, and participants will be compensated for their time.
