Big Boiler is based on a temazcal, a type of sweat lodge which originated among pre-Columbian people in Mesoamerica. The lodge was used curatively after battle or a ceremonial ball game. The contemporary version has been upgraded with an ice bath and a hot tub, offering a rejuvenating cycle of hot and cold, beginning and ending.
