Steam bath

Steam bathing is carried out in steam chambers with high water vapour content at a temperature of 35-40 °C. Due to steam bathing the pores of the skin expand, get clean, the production of the sebaceous glands increases, the blood circulation becomes more vivid, the muscles get relaxed and the catarrh of the respiratory mucosa also dissolves.

Increased sweating happens in a very short period of time in steam baths, and due to the high water vapour content the sweat is not able to evaporate, therefore heat build up happens. That’s why healthy people are allowed to spend only 10-15 minutes inside, and sick ones can only use the bath if they have a doctor’s permission. A body heated up in a steam chamber can only be cooled down gradually by warmish and chill water. Steam bathing has to be followed by at least 30 minutes of relaxation.

Hot air chambers work at a temperature of 60-80 °C, but the air is dry, contains little water vapour, therefore sweating can evaporate. They are used for training or decreasing the weight of professional sportsmen.

A steam baths for 6 people is available at our wellness unit.
