The purpose of a sauna is usually for relaxation. The high temperatures and low humidity of a sauna is very relaxing and helps relieve tense muscles.
What are the Benefits of a Sauna?”
A sauna has several benefits beyond the obvious relaxation factor. For example it has been shown that a sauna can actually improve your immune system. The skin acts a medium to remove impurities from the body through sweating. So by sweating in a sauna you can also boost the body’s immunity system. Also, you will find that a sauna will increase your blood flow to your extremities. The increased blood flow is what actually relaxes you because the increased blood flow will make your body feel more flexible.
“What is the Purpose of a Steam Room?”
Steam rooms use moist heat to relax muscles and connective tissue. High temperatures within a steam room encourage physiological responses, such as sweating, which eliminate toxins and promote overall good health.

A home steam room provides you with a relaxing environment without having to drive to a day spa or health club. A home steam room provides you with the ability to unwind after a hard day at the office or just to pamper yourself for whatever reason.
