Steam Room Precautions

Consult a doctor. If you plan on using a steam room as a part of your healthcare regimine, consult with your doctor first. A steam room might cause complications if you are pregnant, if you have a history of heart disease, or high blood pressure. Small children should not use a steam room.

Drink sater. When you are in a steam room, your body temparature will increase and you will perspire. It is important to drink plenty of fluids both before and after your time in the steam room. Dehydration can be a very serious problem and should be avoided. Also, make sure that you wait at least an hour after eating a big meal before you enter a steam room. Do not go into a steam room if you are already have a fever.

Manage time. You don't need to stay in the steam room a long time to reap the benefits. About fifteen minutes is the perfect time. Pay attention to the signals your body sends. If you're uncomfortable and desperate for cool air, leave the steam room before the fifteen minutes are up. You may need to slowly build up your tolerance.

Don't go if you are sick. Steam rooms should never be used by people who have a fever or any type, or open wounds. Both of these conditions can get much worse in a steam bath.

Know your limits. When you first start using a steam room limit your time in the room. Start with a session of around 15 to 20 minutes, leave the steam room when you begin to feel uncomfortable. You can always build up to a longer steam room session, but begin by a short relaxing steam bath.
