What are the health advantages of sitting in a steam room or sauna? Can anyone share?

Also, what about sitting in a jaccuzzi? My health club has them and I was just wondering because I never use them.

    excellent for opening up your poors and flushing out toxins, after you work out it flushing out toxins you broke up is a good idea, also it can decrease recovery time while improving circulation, not to mention that it should also increase your immune system… word of caution… always wear sandles as it is possible to pick up warts on your feet from the swet of others

    Benefits of dry sauna and jaguzzi or steam baths:

    =Blood vessels become more flexible and there is increased circulation to the extremities. During a sauna, blood flow to the skin increases to as high as 50-70% of cardiac output (compared to the standard 5-10%). This brings nutrients to subcutaneous and surface tissue resulting in glowing healthy skin.
    =Steambaths and saunas induce sweating to provide a comprehensive cleansing of the skin and sweat glands. Skin is the largest organ in the body. 30% of body wastes are passed through the skin. Profuse sweating enhances the detoxifying capacity of the skin by opening pores and flushing impurities from the body. Thus, reduce and remove body toxins including nicotine, cholesterol; alcohol; sodium, and sulfuric acids.
    =When taking a sauna, skin temperature rises to 104°F (40°C) and internal body temperature rises to about 100.4°F (38°C). Exposure to the high heat creates an artificial fever state. Fever is part of the body’s natural healing process. Fever stimulates the immune system which results in increased production of disease fighting white blood cells, antibodies and interferon (an anti viral protein with cancer fighting capability). Thus strengthening the immune system.
    =Spas and other such therapeutic facilities use saunas and steambaths in conjunction with massage to loosen fatty tissue and assist in the battle against cellulite.
    = Many regular steam and sauna users claim that a “good sweat” at the onset of a cold or flu helps relieve and ward off the most severe symptoms. Thus fights off winter colds with a strengthened immune system.

    Some of the other benefits associated with saunas and steambaths include:
    =Relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis.
    =Treatment for respiratory problems, such as; chest congestion, bronchitis, laryngitis and sinusitis (especially steambaths). Improves lung function.
    =Revival of tired and strained muscles after physical exertion. Relax sore, tight and overworked muscles.
    =Healthy skin and a clear complexion from the cleansing effect of profuse perspiration.
    Refresh, deep clean and moisturizes your skin.
    = Burn calories to help control weight 30 min/day can burn up to 300-500 calories..
    =Relieve daily STRESS and tension.
    = Induce a deeper and more relaxing sleep.
    =Strengthens your cardiovascular system by improving blood circulation and lowering blood pressure diastole.
