High humidity and lower temperatures

One of the most important features of the steam bath is the high humidity, which has a relaxing effect on the body. Another advantage of the steam bath is that the temperatures are lower than in traditional saunas. For some people, lower temperatures in a steam bath are more comfortable to endure, especially if they are sensitive to high temperatures. The temperature in a steam bath is usually 104-140 °F. This temperature is high enough to increase body heat and stimulate circulation, but low enough to ensure a pleasant relaxation experience.

Relaxation and regeneration for body and mind

A steam bath not only offers you relaxation, but also numerous positive effects on your health. The warm, moist air helps relax muscles, relieves stress, and can even be supportive for respiratory conditions. In addition, the steam bath can cleanse and nourish your skin and help you achieve an overall sense of well-being.

Here are some positive effects that the steam bath can provide:

  • Respiratory improvement: the warm air in the steam bath can moisturize and cleanse the respiratory tract. This can be especially beneficial for people with colds, allergies or asthma.
  • Relaxation and stress relief: the steam bath can help relieve muscle tension and reduce stress. The warm air and muted room can help you feel relaxed and balanced.
  • Improve skin texture: the moisture in the steam room can help soften and smooth the skin. It can also help clear clogged pores and reduce the appearance of pimples and acne.
  • Improve blood circulation: the steam bath can improve blood circulation and stimulate circulation, which leads to better oxygenation of the body.
  • Pain relief: the steam bath can help relieve pain in joints and muscles. This is due to the fact that the heat improves blood circulation and relaxes the muscles.
  • Strengthening the immune system: the steam bath can strengthen the immune system by naturally warming the body, stimulating blood circulation.


A steam bath is a simple but effective way to relax and regenerate the body and mind. With its high humidity and low temperatures, it offers numerous positive effects on your health and well-being. Whether you simply want to relax or boost your health, a steam bath is an excellent choice.
