What is a Sauna?
A steam room or sauna is a heated room that people use for relaxation and to relieve some medical-related conditions. The steaming atmosphere is created when a heating unit filled with hot stones is doused with water. This creates an enclosed space that has steam and moisture in the air. The temperature in a steam sauna is normally set at 150° to 195° F with a humidity rate of 5 to 10 percent. Some saunas have several seating levels you can choose from depending on what’s comfortable. The interior of most saunas is unpainted, wooden, and temperature controlled. There are three major types of saunas: steam sauna, dry sauna, and infrared sauna. Steam saunas generate steam when water is applied to a heating element. Dry saunas are heated with gas, electricity, fire, or hot stones. Infrared saunas utilize infrared heaters that emit light and give off radiant heat.
