We also have Spa Retreats at selected Clubs. These luxurious spas are designed to help you tend to your full-body wellness, and you'll find both indoor and outdoor saunas depending on the Club.

Steam rooms

Whether your goal is easing stress, soothing post-workout muscles or simple relaxation, step into the steam rooms at David Lloyd Clubs. There are many benefits associated with this type of heat therapy, such as improving circulation, easing congestion, making skin healthier, and relieving sore joints and muscles. The humidity is the perfect contrast to the dry heat of the sauna, and steam rooms are typically at a lower temperature.

As with our saunas, the steam rooms vary depending on the Club, with some that feature bespoke aromatherapy blends.

Benefits of saunas and steam rooms

Heat therapy can play an important part in wellness given the range of benefits associated with saunas and steam rooms.

In a sauna, you will experience a deliciously dry heat that, while relaxing, can ultimately leave you feeling energised - particularly if you pair it with a cold shower or plunge pool straight afterwards! Studies suggest sauna bathing can be particularly beneficial if you're experiencing lower back pain, as well as helping to ease sore and stiff muscles throughout the body. These benefits explain the popularity of saunas as part of post-workout recovery, but you can also simply head there to unwind.

A steam room can bring similar benefits, although this time you'll be relaxing in humidity.
