For many, the debate over steam room vs. sauna is all about temperature. It is the most obvious, and easily defined difference between the two exposures. But perhaps, the debate needs not be! If moist heat is agreeable to you, your health professional endorses it, and you enjoy spending time in the dense, moist environment – go for it in a Theramist steam shower from Arctic Spas®. But, if sweating and being “hot” is not the part of the activity that does it for you, or if you find the moist heat a bit claustrophobic – perhaps an Arctic Sauna Infrared sauna is for you.
Both types of therapy are likely excellent for you, the exposure usually triggers some good relaxation and a bit of a break from the daily rat-race, and those may be among the most important factors of all! To be sure, give your local Arctic Spa® dealer a call, and try out a short session in either one!
