Sauna VS Steam Room? Which Is Better For You?

Posted on May 16 2023

Both Saunas & Steam Rooms offer a similar service; you sit in a small heated room & both benefit your health. The big difference is the type of heat they provide.

Saunas provide a dry heat usually generated from hot rocks or a closed stove whereas steam rooms are heated using steam from a generator filled with boiling water. Saunas are also generally hotter than a steam room.

Steam Room Benefits

  • Clear Congestion
  • Improve skin health
  • Improves joint stiffness
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Workout recovery

Sauna Benefits

  • Improved sleep
  • Detoxification
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Pain Reduction
  • Stress Management
  • Improved Brain Function
  • Relaxation

Both saunas & steam rooms promote muscle relaxation, alleviate soreness & help your skin. However, Saunas have been more extensively studied for their cardiorespiratory, cognitive & overall morality perks.

Neither is inherently better than the other but saunas may offer more benefits for more people.

Our saunas are highly customisable with many accessories such as showers, steam rooms & changing rooms. Please get in touch with us on for a custom quote today.
