The Amazing Benefits of a Steam Sauna

With winter here, it’s officially dry air season, which means dry scratchy throats, sinuses, and skin. While there’s nothing we can do about the weather, there are certainly steps we can take to combat the effects of dry air on our bodies. Slathering up with soothing body lotions, staying hydrated, and keeping warm when going outdoors will all help to some degree (see what we did there?) but these steps may not be enough to keep the effects of dry air at bay.

At Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, we have a solution that will not only keep your body warm and moisturized, but it will also provide many other health benefits you may not have known about. Our Eucalyptus Steam Room is the place to be this winter, whether you’re looking to keep your lungs clear or boost your immune system against all those nasty colds and flus going around.

Here are just a few benefits of regular usage of the Eucalyptus Steam Room here at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach.

It Helps You Breathe

While it may not be the most pleasant thing to think about, steam can loosen phlegm and mucus and help you breathe easier following an illness or allergies. It can also help detoxify your body, which can be extremely beneficial following a cold. That being said, be sure you are no longer contagious when using a steam room to lessen the spread of germs.

It Helps You Lose Weight

For many of us, the New Year means new fitness goals, including weight loss. Did you know that using a steam room can actually help with weight loss? It’s true! Using a steam room relaxes the muscles and circulatory system, increasing your blood flow. This in turn reduces stress, boosts energy, and revs up the metabolism, which helps with energy and fat burning!

It Helps Post-Workout Recovery

Feeling a little drained after your workout? The steam room can help relieve post-workout pain and even lessen the risk of muscle damage, because it increases the blood flow to your muscles, and may help the body flush away toxins released by the body during exercise.

It can also help loosen the joints, making it easier to exercise, akin to a warm-up before your workout.

It Helps Your Skin

Steam is used in many spa facial treatments to help open the pores and release toxins in the skin that may be causing blemishes or a dull, lackluster complexion.

It Feels Good

Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that using a steam room quite simply feels good. Between the deep hydration and soothing heat, it can be a relaxing experience, whether you’re using it for the health benefits or not.

Remember, to maximize the benefits of a steam room, it’s important that you visit the steam room on a regular basis. Here at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, our Eucalyptus Steam Room is included in our Spa Membership Packages, so that you can experience the amazing benefits of steam every single day.
