Sauna Vs Steam – Which KLAFS Thermal Cabin is Best for You?

Whilst the physical experience of relaxing in a KLAFS sauna or steam room can feel fairly similar, an obvious difference between the two is the sensation of wet or dry heat. However, there are many other variances between wellness cabins that may leave you wondering which is best suited for you.

Here’s some helpful information from our KLAFS at Guncast experts to help you discover your perfect thermal journey:

Ease Your Aches and Pains With a KLAFS Steam Bath

If you suffer from joint pain, backache or muscle soreness, just five to fifteen minutes in a KLAFS steam bath could help ease your discomfort. Steam helps to increase blood flow and the calming warmth prompts the muscles to relax so that limb and joint pain can be noticeably reduced. Steam baths can also provide effective pain relief for those that suffer from rheumatism or arthritis. Additionally, steam helps alleviate aches and can contribute to accelerated healing of your muscle tissue, after a workout for example. Steam rooms provide a gentler heat which may be better for those with respiratory conditions.

Use a KLAFS Steam Room to Detox Your Skin

Regular use of a steam bath can be especially beneficial for the skin, helping to clear blemishes and flush out toxins. High humidity may provide a moisturising effect whilst steam can help to open the pores, offering deep cleansing and leaving skin glowing and feeling revived. With unlimited access to your own detoxifying KLAFS Steam Bath installed by Guncast, you can experience rejuvenated and refreshed skin.

Soothe Body and Soul in a KLAFS Sauna

Reaching a dry heat of up to 100 degrees, saunas provide the ultimate relaxation, easing tense muscles and relieving tension. Saunas are wonderful at soothing nerve endings and calming painful migraines as well as lowering blood pressure. The clean and clear air allows you to enjoy reading or other activities to help de-stress, while the high temperature promotes a peaceful sleep pattern.
In addition, the deep sweating that comes from heat bathing in a sauna helps to remove dead skin cells and flushes bacteria from the epidermal layer of skin and sweat ducts. Sweating is also known to bring a bath of nutrients and minerals to the skin which can help to maintain collagen structure and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
