The Benefits Of Steam Rooms

The benefits of steam rooms

If you are like most people, you don't like to sweat...but it may be good for you. And you may not even need to exercise work up a sweat. All you have to do is sit back and relax in a steam room. Calgary steam rooms provide a moist heat that is associated with many health benefits including:


Have you ever felt your muscles give up their tension in a hot bath or shower? A steam room acts in much the same way to help relax tense, stiff muscles. Spending time in a steam room can ease tension headaches and make you feel more loose, relaxed and limber. To promote even greater relaxation, steam rooms can be combined with the use of essential oils like lavender.


The steam room will raise your body temperature and cause you to perspire. This, in turn, stimulates your immune system. The increased temperature (hyperthermia) destroys bacteria and toxins, flushing them out of the body through perspiration.


Have you ever used a vaporizer when you had nasal or chest congestion? A steam room functions in much the same way. The warm, moist air helps clear and sooth your nasal passages, throat, and lungs, making it easier for you to breathe. As discussed above, the steam room can also help fight any illness underlying the congestion.

Cardiovascular Stimulation

Being in a steam room puts a mild strain on the cardiovascular system, raising your pulse rate by as much as one third to one half. Your blood pressure does not increase, however, as the heat causes blood vessels to expand to accommodate the increased blood flow. The result is that you get a cardio workout without moving a muscle.

As with all health tools, using a steam room requires common sense and a few basic precautions. It is always wise to see your doctor before beginning a new healthcare regimen, and regular use of a steam room is no exception. Be especially sure to consult with your doctor if you are or may be pregnant, if you have a history of heart problems, or if you have any other medical concerns.

Remember that being in a steam room will cause you to perspire and will raise your body temperature, so make sure you drink plenty of fluids both before and after your time in the steam room. Skip the steam room if you are already running a fever.

Finally, remember that you don't need to stay in the steam room a long time to reap the benefits. About fifteen minutes is the perfect time. Pay attention to the signals your body sends. If you're uncomfortable and desperate for cool air, leave the Calgary steam room before the fifteen minutes are up. You may need to slowly build up your tolerance.

When used appropriately, steam rooms can offer a wide array of health benefits. Talk to your doctor and consider adding regular time in a steam room to your health routine. You may also consider contacting a local Calgary renovation contractor to build your very own steam room right at home.
