Top Health Benefits of Steam Rooms and Saunas

Who does not want to relax and get pampered? Each one of us wants to experience haven on earth, forgetting all that pain, stress, and misery that flood our lives in one way or the other.  Here are a few reasons why you should steam and sauna your way to better overall health at a professional Korean sauna facility in NYC.

Benefits for Heat Seekers

What makes sauna different from steam room is the kind of heat and warmth that exudes from both holistic therapy sessions. While a steam room gives off humid heat, sauna is a form of dry therapeutic heat that relaxes your body.

  • Relaxation

Sauna and steam room can have an ultimate relaxation and calming effect on your body, eliminating toxins through sweat and relieving you of physical and mental stress. Not only this, the dry heat from sauna can ease all kinds of joint and muscular pain, while improving blood circulation throughout the body.

  • Healthy cardiovascular system

As the heat from sauna and steam rooms has a therapeutic effect on your body, there is improved blood flow to and from the heart. When your heart is stimulated to pump faster, it helps make your cardio muscle stronger, without exhausting it. This can have immense benefits for your cardiovascular system.

  • Unclog Pores & detoxify body

Subjecting your body to extreme temperatures at our Korean sauna facility in NYC causes it to sweat buckets, which ultimately unclogs the pores and infuses a rush of oxygenated blood all through the body.  This helps eliminate toxins from the body, making your skin look and feel great. Not to mention, stimulated blood flow will eliminate dead skin cells, leaving your skin feel fresh, rejuvenated, and fairer than ever before.

  • Weight loss

Steam rooms and sauna baths will get you sweating. Regular sauna sessions can induce sweat loss and cause water loss from the body. Since water makes up a good percentage of your total body weight, such therapeutic sessions may help you shed a few extra pounds, promoting weight loss.

  • Lower blood pressure

The warming of blood causes dilation of vessels, which helps bring down blood pressure levels. Additionally, the therapeutic heat travels deep down your muscles, providing ultimate relaxation while reducing stress and pain symptoms. According to a Harvard Medical School report, dry heat from sauna causes a 30% or more jump in pulse rate, doubling the amount of blood pumped by the heart each minute.

  • Stress relief

The heat from a sauna warms and relaxes muscles and soothes your nerves, relieving your body of stress and tension and minimizing joint pain.  Anyone suffering from arthritis or painful migraines or joint inflammation can find sauna bath immensely beneficial.

  • Better sleep

The heat from sauna promotes release of endorphins in the body and creates a therapeutic effect. The feel-good chemical reduces stress and helps your body and mind to relax enough for a stress-free sleep. If you suffer from insomnia, sauna bath could be the key to enjoying a sound sleep.

First, your body is heated up. When you leave, it gradually begins to cool down and there is a surge of melatonin secretion, which makes you feel more relaxed, creating a calming effect, so you can enjoy a deeper slumber.

  • Open sinuses

Wet heat in a steam room opens up your sinuses, mucous membranes, and lungs. Clear airway passages make breathing easier. This is especially beneficial for people suffering from cough and long problems, sinus infections or chronic congestion, helping soothe respiratory system.
