Steam room after gym session

I normally go into the steam room at gym for about 15 minutes after my workout in the gym. Workout will last about 30 - 60 min and consists of walking/jogging/rowing/weights/circuit etc. Could this be armfull to my heart at all? Should I not go into the steam room after a workout?

It should not be harmful to your heart. Pay attention to your body. If you feel light headed or experience any chest pain, you should consult your doctor for an examination. A steam room after a workout, assists with muscle recovery, as this improves blood flow.
