Both sauna and steam are beneficial before or after all spa treatments, but should always be used in moderation. These rooms should NEVER be used in combination with alcohol. The sauna is dry heat that warms your muscles and begins the relaxation process. We recommend no more than 12 to 15 minutes at a time. The steam room is wet heat that is effective in opening pores and is wonderful for the respiratory system. We recommend no more than 5 to 6 minutes at a time.
