Steam Bath

Steam baths and saunas are often considered similar, since both help the body to dispose of toxins. Nevertheless, there is a major difference – saunas have very high temperature (often 70-95 degrees) and low humidity, while the environment in steam baths is just the opposite – temperature is slightly lower (around 40 degrees) and humidity is much higher.

The warm and humid air in steam bath increases circulation in the body and relaxes muscles and joints. Steam baths are also especially helpful after workouts because the environment inside helps the body to remain flexible, which prevents post-workout side effects. In addition, the steam aids the release of toxins and cleans the skin, making it softer and healthier. 

Steam baths are very beneficial for people suffering from asthma and respiratory diseases. The dry heat in saunas tends to be too strong for the lungs, while the subtle and humid warmth is relaxing and opens up the lungs and the bronchi. It can also decrease pain in the joints and arthritis symptoms.

People are often calmer after spending time in a steam bath and that can help reduce problems associated with sleep deprivation and stress. 

Contrast Pool

The contrast pool strengthens the immune system, increases blood circulation and improves the stamina. It is advisable to use the contrast pool after the sauna or steam bath, for five to ten seconds. 

Sauna

Saunas are especially beneficial for people under stress, or after a workout, as there is a relaxing effect. Pressured muscles are relaxed and the autonomic nervous system controlling muscle stretching is assisted.

The indoor pool at Maxi Club Sofia is 15 meters and is available throughout the year. The pool is equally suitable for adults and children, as its depth varies, starting from 1.20 meters at one end and reaching 1.90 meters at the other end. No matter the day, or season, a couple of laps will tone the body and mind, especially if preceded by a workout at the gym, or followed by a relaxing massage.
