    Saunas and steam rooms are both popular and refreshing choices for people who want to sooth their muscles before or after an energetic and grueling workout. They both have numerous health benefits, Image alt text: A young woman enjoying a hot sauna which has made them a part of many people’s fitness routines, including a large number of celebrities.

    In this blog, our experts weigh the two options to help you decide which is better for you for a post-workout routine that gives you significant results. Let’s look at the difference between a sauna and a steam bath before we begin.

    Steam bath and sauna: what’s the difference?

    The most apparent difference between the two is the way they’re heated.
    Traditional saunas are heated using a unique stove where wooden planks are heated and then splashed with water to generate steam.
    On the other hand, infrared saunas use electromagnetic radiation from infrared lamps to heat the body directly.
    Steam baths and rooms use boiling water to create steam in the air.

    What are the benefits?

    They also have different purposes and health benefits. For example, steam rooms are commonly used to treat cold and allergy symptoms, as they open up airways. They also help you treat other respiratory systems and make your skin healthier.
    Sauna baths have a wide range of benefits, including improving cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure. They also stimulate the production of more feel-good hormones such as endorphins.
    Using a sauna after a workout helps improve blood circulation and can make your muscles feel less sore.

    What are some things you should consider before stepping in a sauna or steam room?

    You should wait a minimum of ten minutes after you work out before you begin your sauna or steam session.
    Make sure to drink plenty of water and take it with you in the sauna or steam room so you can keep sipping on it.
    If you’re pregnant, have kidney or heart disease, or take medication, it’s best to avoid using saunas and steam rooms.

    Unequaled Performance

    I am pleased to provide an objective review of USA Health & Wellness, and of the Therasauna TS5753, a full spectrum infrared sauna I ordered from them on December 9, 2020 and received on January 14, 2021.

    Why USA Health & Wellness?

    I have been using saunas, etc. for six decades, first in Europe where I spent my teenage years, and then in the United States. I have owned a custom-built Finnish/traditional sauna, a steam bath, a hot tube, and now a full spectrum infrared sauna, and I have used all except infrared saunas in gyms, hotels, etc. Hence I did not approach my most recent purchase as a complete neophyte. Even so, I found the current market place to be rich in inflated claims, with each merchant touting his products as the best, often with unsupported claims. On the USA Health & Wellness site, Garen accurately describes the journey of trying to separate fact from fiction. It was clear that he had carefully navigated the maze I was attempting to navigate, and I determined to pursue that journey in earnest with USA Health & Wellness.

    My first call was made at the end of a weekend, in the evening, in early December. To my amazement, Tyler answered the phone and explored the options with me at length. I found it remarkable that he and Garen were always available and never rushed – in the evenings, on weekends, and even on Christmas and New Year's Day when I intended only to leave messages. I posed unusual, sometimes provoking questions, to which they always replied in a forthright, informative, and affirming manner. I'm embarrassed to say that more than 100 emails have been exchanged, with them always welcoming my inquiries and occasional apprehensions. I was treated like their most important customer, as if we had been friends in college. In contrast, questions sent by email to the manufacturer, especially those with technical content, typically have been ignored or treated dismissively. On those occasions when I have been able to reach someone in customer service by phone, the individuals have been consistently welcoming and eager to help. Hence, I do not recommend email communication with the manufacturer.

    During the selection and purchase process, I read everything I could find on saunas, investigating product, health, and benefit claims (including many unfounded claims by other vendors), reaching the conclusion that USA Health & Wellness had told it straight, right from the beginning. If they are guilty of anything, they are guilty of understatement (e.g. “I estimate 1 - 2 weeks (for delivery);” it arrived only three days later, and without any damage or blemishes.)

    Having never used an infrared sauna and not wanting to use a publicly available sauna during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was left to the literature and to Tyler's guidance. As an extensive user of traditional saunas, my initial leanings were toward a Finnish sauna. Selecting an infrared sauna from Therasauna has proved to be a better choice. It heats up more quickly, the interior heat distribution can be customized, and it draws substantially fewer watts.

    My already high confidence in USA Health & Wellness developed to a point where I was comfortable paying for the sauna by personal check (without the protection of a credit card). Tyler graciously reduced the purchase price to reflect the savings of the entire credit card fee. Tyler found other creative ways to reduce my costs without detracting in any way from the product or its quality.

    Why an Infrared Sauna from Therasauna?

    USA Health & Wellness offers a variety of saunas. As best I can tell, their assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of each product is accurate. Wanting a quality product with abundant room for one person and comfortable, symmetrical space for two, I selected the Theresauna TS5753. It is part of the only line of infrared saunas made entirely in the USA; along the way I have developed a healthy aversion for anything made even in part in China. Further, Therasauna has a reputation for taking exceptional pride in their workmanship. This visible surfaces are all nicely finished (the invisible, outside back wall less so).

    Recently I began working with a world-class sports medicine physician in Park City, where many Olympic athletes reside and train. During my early January visit with him, I asked him about the possible relevance of a sauna to my regular exercise regimen. He immediately endorsed the idea and proceeded to tell me about the categories (and sub-categories, and sub-sub-categories) of saunas, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, concluding with his endorsement of full spectrum infrared saunas, characterizing them as the saunas of the future, all while I listened politely. His endorsement further solidified my confidence in my choice and in the guidance Tyler had provided right from the start.

    American Spa Purchase

    Great spa for a great price. No sales tax or delivery fees so that made it worth it right there. Some one is in the spa daily now it is cold outside. I would recommend the spa and buying it from USA Health and Wellness. The biggest catch is they will only drop it off at the drive way. You will need to get it to the final spot.

    Awesome 😎

    Health Mate Enrich 2 - 2 Person Infrared Sauna

    Spectacular sauna

    I have been using saunas and steam rooms on a regular basis since 1982. I never used a full spectrum sauna before. After the Healthmate 2 person sauna was delivered, my son and I, unpacked it and assembled it in an hour and a half we were in it 20 minutes later ! It is the best sauna I have ever been in! My wife and son love it as well.
