Sauna

Health Benefits:

As your circulatory system feels the heat, it works harder. 'the blood-flow boost can lower artey plaque, the primary precursor of heart attacks'

Weight Loss:

Up to 500g in 10 mins 'japanese researchers found saunas actually work your heart hard enough to constitute light exercise'

Skin:

Your capillaries will dilate more to push the heat out of your system, but your body will sense the dry heat and try to resist, in order to retain moisture, potentially trapping dirt in your follicles.

Recovery:

A recent study from the university of Otago found a post-workout sauna can actually impair recovery. 'a cold plunge will help you recover faster'

Steam Room

Health Benefits:

'breathing and holding in the hot, moist air relieves muslce soreness as well as improving airflow in the lungs to loosen tight airways and relieve asthma.'

Weight Loss:

Up to 125g in 10 minutes, your heart wont be working as hard, so virtually every gram of weight you lose will bein the form of sweat.

Skin:

The wet heat encourages your pores to open more fully, which helps release dirt and chemicals trapped in them. 'best shower afterwards if you dont like the sticky look.'

Recovery:

The steam will ease your breathing and your less likely to suffer dehydration, giving your body a greater chance of recovery.

The above is an article from mens health comparing the two and the overall verdict is the steam room is better.

I nicked this from someone who typed it out from MH. Hope it helps.
