    Sauna/Swim/Steam Room

    Novice hereÖ

    Is there a particular order I should do the above cycle in for maximum benefits? The local gym has all three and having went tonight for the first time, I struggled to work out what would be the best cycle for this (probably doing two rounds of ten mins each I would think).

    Does anyone else do something similar who can share their experience/health benefits?

    The heat benefits the muscles after giving them a workout, gets the blood flowing again, helps repairs the muscle but ive spoken to folk who insist on going in before a swim, dont think anyone will say for certain that there is a set way it should be done, not much help really though sorry

    I would always advise cooling off in the pool after using heat. The sweats when getting changed and then leaving the centre with the sweats is awful.

    Went this morning and it was -

    Sauna 7.5mins
    Pool 5mins
    Steam room 7.5mins
    Pool 5mins

    Will do the same on Sunday except Iíll do two rounds of it. Benefit of the steam room on my sinuses will be fantastic I feel.

    Does anyone ever notice an actual benefit from the sauna and steam room?

    I used to go all the time at the gym purely because I was paying for it and Iíd already be swimming. Canít say Iíve noticed any difference for it though..

    If your are looking for relief from sinus issues then I can't recommend salt rooms highly enough. There is one in Edinburgh, not sure about Fife.

    I had chronic sinusitis for years brought about by inflammation caused by hayfever. This was interspersed with bouts of acute sinusitis as well which needed antibiotics.. Steroid sprays, nasal rinses etc just didn't touch the issue. The benefits after only a couple to visits to the salt rooms were obvious. Occasional visits there and a sea water spray has all but eradicated the problem.

    Without dragging the thread off-topic, I've suffered from various sinus/rhinitis issues over the years compounded by genetics, seasonal hayfever and early-teen turbinate removal.
    Like you PB, I suffered and was prescribed many meds/sprays and again like you, simple salt has been the miracle cure. I use a traditional neti pot (modern equivalents are available) and rinse my nasal cavity with lightly salted water. Not only is the salty brine a natural antiseptic/anti-bacerial, but the rinsing flushes out the sinuses. It might be psychosomatic but I've not had to use any hayfever remedies for years!

    Anyway, as you were, back to saunas & steam rooms 🙄

    Iíll look into salt rooms post haste. For years now Iíve had issues with my right nostril, an almost permanent sour scent that just smells awful and Iíve never been able to clear it despite using sprays (Iíve been snorted lemon juice which is not for the faint hearted).

    Mrs Mattyís used the salt rooms and thought they were excellent as well.
