In fact, respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and allergies can be effectively alleviated as the heat from the steam helps to soothe breathing passages, whilst adding moisture content to the nose, lungs and throat.
Those suffering from stress and tension can find tranquillity in a warm, relaxing environment.
This can decrease muscle tension and also help to reduce blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and migraine headaches.
Athletes and people suffering from muscle and joint pain are often heavy users of sauna and steam rooms too. The heat and humidity helps to expand the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach damaged areas of the body.
There are also added beauty benefits too! Dermatologists recognise that steam helps to create a beautiful, natural healthy glow through cleansing the skin. This has been proven to be more effective than soap and water! How you might ask? Sweating opens your pores to allow deep-seated dirt and dead cells to be flushed out, leaving you with a cleaner, more radiant appearance without the need for expensive cleansers, buffers or moisturisers.
