Always consult your doctor before using a steam room if you suffer from any ailment. Please check first!
The steam feature if fitted is a great asset when used correctly. The following are rough guidelines designed to help you obtain this. Firstly what are you expecting? Remember this is not a sauna and as such is not expected to reach sauna temperature. A steam room is an enclosed space with large amounts of high-temperature steam, creating a high humidity environment. You sit in this room in a similar way to a sauna (conversely a hot, but dry atmosphere), for relaxation and purported benefits to health and well being.
Steam rooms are commonly set to a temperature of approx. 38-40 degrees Celsius with a high humidity of around 100% adding to the sensation. In comparison, saunas are maintained at a much higher temperature due to the lack of humidity in the air (around 73 degrees Celsius).
Length of time in use is usually around 10 minutes.
