Sauna Versus Steam Room
While saunas and steam rooms have a lot of similarities, they are also two different types of experiences. The common denominator is that they both are used as therapeutical applications that causes the body's temperature to increase and ultimately sweat. The raising of the body's temperature causes the blood flow to increase to pump more blood to the muscles and body surface in order to attempt to cool the body. Endorphins are also produced upon an elevated body temperature. These result in a feeling of well-being as they make their way to the brain.
