Sauna Steam Room

Steam baths use moist heat, while a sauna offers up a dry heat session. Steam rooms generally will have a temperature between 100 and 114 degrees Fahrenheit. A sauna however is much hotter - up to 100 degrees C, or 212 F which is the point which water will boil. Both of these will stimulate blood flow in the body, and encourage the body to have a healthy metabolism. Some may find it harder to breathe though in the dry heat that a sauna produces. If you have a respiratory issue, such as asthma, you may like the moist heat of a steam bath as opposed to a sauna. The heat also helps with joint pain, stiff back, and other pain.
