This softer heat and increased humidity with the added benefit of the salt inhalation injection system giving a high salt content within the air has beneficial effects, particularly for the respiratory system and skin.
Aromatherapy steam room
The Aromatherapy steam room differs from the sauna in both temperature and humidity, with a typical operating temperature normally in the region of 40° C - 45° C, with virtually 100% humidity. This softer heat and increased humidity is often preferred as it is less drying on the skin.
