High humidity,
deep relaxation

What was already in use with the Romans and Greeks in antiquity is indispensable in today's world: the steam bath is a mild wellness experience in which mind and body take a bath together. At 43/45 degrees and 100% humidity the cardiovascular system is trained, the skin is pampered, the respiratory tract is freed and the muscles are relaxed. By the way, you don't have to wait for the cool winter fog. The warm version is always in season, the options range from an individual steam bath, a steam shower or even a combination of sauna and steam bath. Just as your wish for relaxation desires.

Insieme factsheet

Steam bath or sauna
What’s the difference?

The difference between a sauna and a steam bath/shower is the climate, i.e. the temperature/humidity ratio. A sauna is kept at a temperature of around 85 to 100 degrees Celsius, with five to ten per cent humidity. The dry, hot air makes you start to perspire, as the body tries to cool down. This is quite different to a steam bath. Dense, warm wafts of mist are created with 100% humidity and temperatures of around 40 degrees Celsius. This is because water transfers heat better than air. Which is why you sweat less than in a sauna.

What appears to be sweat is in fact steam condensing into water on your skin, which is around 20 degrees cooler. In both cases, an 8–12-minute session is recommended before moving on to the second and, if need be, third round after cooling down and relaxing.

Like saunas, steam baths or showers have many health benefits, which optimally unfold through aromas, herbs and sound. Steam baths are also known as caldaria, Turkish baths or hammam.
