Experiencing Fatigue and Low Energy?

Harnessing the rejuvenating advantages of a steam room or sauna is a tradition embraced by ancient cultures like the Romans and Greeks, who were avid patrons of such bathhouses.

Steam Rooms

Steam utilization involves brief passive exposure to intense heat at maximum humidity. This induces mild hyperthermia, an elevation in the body’s core temperature that triggers a thermoregulatory response, restoring homeostasis and conditioning the body for subsequent heat stressors.

Steam Room Benefits

Improve Circulatory Function

Moist heat, as produced in a steam room, has the capability to boost circulation by dilating the small blood vessels or capillaries. This expansion promotes smoother blood flow, facilitating the efficient transport of oxygen throughout the body.

Relieve Pain and Maintain Muscle Strength

Administering moist heat immediately after a workout can help alleviate pain and maintain muscle strength. The heat has a soothing effect on nerve endings and induces muscle relaxation.

Reduce Stress

A steam room has the capacity to reduce cortisol levels, the hormone released in response to stress. As cortisol levels decrease, individuals may perceive an increased sense of control, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Improve Skin Health

The steam enveloping your body permeates the pores, facilitating the removal of dirt and debris through sweat. This cleansing process not only purifies your skin but also enhances its radiance.

Detoxify

The gentle warmth and high humidity in our spa facility are likely to prompt a light sweat, with the steam helping to open your pores. This process assists in flushing out toxins through your skin.

Understanding Steam Rooms and Their Operation

Frequently found in spas, bathhouses, or gyms, a steam room is a heated space, similar to a sauna but with 100% humidity, created by water-filled steam machines that disperse humid air into the room.

These steam machines can be infused with essential oils, introducing invigorating or relaxing scents, which may offer additional health benefits.

A steam session can be complemented by a dip in a cold pool to engage in a form of contrast therapy.

The Turkish-style steam room is a well-known design, featuring vibrant tiles and an adjacent pool.

FAQs

How should one inhale in a steam room?

It is recommended to inhale through your nose and exhale through either the nose or mouth while in a steam room. The steam and heat are utilized to help loosen mucus and open up your sinuses. Initially, the hot air might be slightly irritating in your nostrils, but you should acclimate to it over time.

What is the recommended frequency for using a steam room?

It is recommended to limit your steam room sessions to a duration of 20-30 minutes, approximately two to three times a week. Optionally, you can take a five-minute break and then return for an additional 15 to 20-minute session. This process can be repeated three to four times.

Is it preferable to enter the steam room before or after a workout?

You have the option to use a steam room either before or after a workout. Opting for a steam session before a workout can assist in muscle relaxation and joint loosening, similar to a warm-up. The same effect is beneficial post-workout, helping to relax your muscles and promote recovery.

What actions should be taken after utilizing a steam room?

Following the steam room session, it's advisable to take a shower to cleanse your body of sweat and any impurities or toxins that your pores have expelled. Additionally, consider a brief cooling dip in the cold pool at our Brisbane facilities. Another excellent post-steam session option is to indulge in a massage at our Brisbane facility. The heat from the steam helps relax tense muscles, enhancing the benefits of a deeper tissue massage.

What is the recommended attire for a steam room?

When using a public steam room at a bathhouse or spa, like ours in Brisbane, it is customary to wear a swimsuit and bring a bath towel to sit on the tiles, especially in a Turkish-style steam room. This is also recommended, particularly if you plan to take a dip in the pool immediately after your session.
