Sauna VS Steam
There is a very obvious difference between a sauna and a steam room -- dry vs. wet. Saunas provide dry heat, while steam rooms generate moist heat. Both can open up your pores, loosen up your muscles and help you relax. Which one is right for you? There is an ongoing debate among spa-goers about preference, however, when it comes to installing one in your house, what would you go for?
Steam rooms and saunas share some therapeutic benefits. Above all, they both reduce muscle tension, promoting relaxation and general well-being. The heat helps improve circulation and, of course, promotes sweating, which opens up the pores and cleanses the skin. Steam rooms may be more comfortable for people with allergies or congestion in the chest or sinuses. Saunas are the better choice for people with conditions that can be aggravated by humidity, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Whatever your preference, adding a sauna or steam to your swimming pool room, or including the steam room in your basement swimming pool plans will ensure your project is as complete as possible.
