Therapy OVERVIEW

Sitting in a steam room might significantly improve your cardiovascular health. However, after we break a sweat during a tough workout, steam sessions may help stimulate blood flow to cool the skin and bring more oxygen to the muscles. As a result, the body can build more endurance to engage in physical activity regularly and with more strength.  Improved circulation can lead to lowered blood pressure and a healthier heart.   It can also promote healing of broken skin tissue.  Moist heat can help relieve pain and reduce  muscle damage.   Wet steam can offer some pain relief by increasing blood flow to muscles.   Experts used to think that these heated rooms only moved blood to the skin.    However, they also shift blood from your core into your muscles.

WHY This Therapy

Why would you use a steam bath?  Athletes need relaxation and stress relief, and steam rooms can be the best way to power down from a tough workout—or a tough loss. Steam therapy has been shown in some people to help raise endorphins, the runner's high, and serotonin, which helps enhance mood and promote a feeling of calm.  Through a process called thermic conditioning, steam therapy may increase your physical stamina and exercise endurance. In a study in the Journal of Science Medicine & Sport, researchers discovered that two 30-minute sessions in a sauna or steam room per week increased endurance output by 32%
