A steam room or steam sauna is a type of sauna that runs on moist steam. Unlike the traditional sauna, which uses dry heat, the steam room increases the humidity up to 100 percent and the temperature is usually between 40 and 50 degrees Celsius.
During the steam bath you sit in an enclosed room that is filled with steam. The steam is usually created by heating water poured onto hot stones or a heater. The high moisture content in the steam room can help cleanse the skin by opening pores and drawing out dirt and sweat. It can also help stimulate circulation and reduce stress.
Steam rooms are often offered in wellness facilities such as spas, gyms and hotels. However, it is important to note that the steam room is not suitable for everyone, especially for people with heart and circulatory problems or low blood pressure. It is recommended that you consult a doctor before using a steam room, especially if you have any health problems.
