A sauna is a small room designed to be heated to very high temperatures, with well-controlled humidity. Saunas are used both for recreational and therapeutic purposes, with most people utilizing them as a relaxation tool that provides additional health benefits. The majority of saunas are built of wood, often aromatic, that release pleasing aromas as they heat.
There are two main types of saunas: dry and wet. Which type you prefer is just a matter of taste. Wet saunas are sometimes called steam rooms, and are kept at lower temperatures than their dry counterparts--usually between 100-115 Fahrenheit (37-46 Celsius). This, to prevent the superheated water from scalding the skin on contact. Dry saunas may be kept at much higher temperatures of up to 250 Fahrenheit (121 Celsius), by keeping the ambient moisture down to nearly zero
Fixed sauna is constructed with highest quality (imported) treated & seasoned pinewood. The wooden panels used have tongue and groove joints that take care of expansion and contraction as compared to flat panels used by other manufactures. A special Sauna Door capable of withstanding extreme variations in temperature between the inside and outside surfaces is provided.

For a very wet and hot health treatment, people often seek out a peaceful steam bath. This usually takes place in a sealed room with wooden benches, similar to a sauna, which is kept at an even temperature and filled with mist. There is a narrow range of optimum temperature for humans, around 112° F (44° C), that raises our body temperature without causing overheating. The circulating vapor must be replenished so the humidity remains near saturation for maximum benefits.You may find a steam bath at your yoga studio, local spa, health clinic, or stand-alone establishment that may also have hot tubs, saunas, or wading pools.
A steam shower is a type of bathing where a humidifying steam generator produces water vapor that is dispersed around a person's body. These types of showers are becoming increasingly popular in many countries. A steam shower is essentially a steam room that offers the typical features of a bathroom shower.
Steam showers are generally found in self-contained enclosures that prevent the water vapour from escaping into the main part of the bathroom, avoiding damage to drywall, paint, or wallpaper. Steam showers are available in a variety of materials, including but not limited to tile, acrylic, fiberglass, stone, and wood.
