Steam Saunas - Ease aches & pains with steam
What is a steam sauna?
Ever since Roman times when people would meet in saunas to socialize, they have been used in many cultures worldwide for health and relaxation. Taking a steam sauna is a great way to ease aches and pains, improve your circulation and remove toxins and poisons from your system.
What are steam saunas?
A steam sauna is basically a type of dry heat bath that you take in a well-insulated room which is most often lined with untreated timber such as pine or cedar that has been specially dried in a kiln.
Igneous rocks are heated in the stove and when they are sufficiently hot, water is sprinkled on to the rocks, causing the room to fill with steam which relaxes you and causes you to sweat, which in turn cleans out your system and detoxifies you.
The temperature of the steam sauna is controlled with a thermostat. Most home saunas and pre-built saunas come equipped with thermostats and thermometers so you can check that the temperature is not getting dangerously high.
