What is a temascal? it is similar to a sweat lodge used by Maya people from very ancient times. You can put herbs and usually has stones (volcanic).
Temascal comes from Nahuatl word temāzcalli that means house of heat. The main difference with a sauna is that it is more humid.
The goal is a purification of mind, body and soul.
