If you don’t feel comfortable in a warm, damp room, then the sauna is your best option. People with rheumatism or acute afflictions will also feel great in the sauna. Because your heart has to work harder in a steam room, a sauna is better for people with cardiovascular disorders.
If you have breathing problems and / or allergies, then the steam room is usually your best choice. The damp air helps to open up your sinuses and airways. Breathing in this steam is also effective to help bronchitis, asthma, coughing or other problems that can be remedied by damp air.
The sauna and the steam room are both good for your body and help to improve your breathing and blood flow. The biggest difference is the temperature and the dampness. When you suffer from certain conditions, you should always consult your doctor first for any potential risks.
