The Modern Steam Bath -- A Healing Remedy for Stress

One of the oldest healing remedies in the world, steam baths have been used for centuries to promote health and vitality. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, encouraged the practice saying "Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease."

Steam bathing will not only help you relax and relieve stress, but also relieve tired, stiff muscles and can be used in the rehabilitation of certain sports injuries. It can even reduce the stiffness and pain associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Steam stimulates the immune system by causing the body to produce more white blood cells, which helps the body to fight against common colds and other diseases. Steam also stimulates lymph systems by increasing blood circulation in your body, which helps with weight loss and tones and improves the function of all of the body's organs. It has a positive effect on the skin by purging toxins out of the body by sweating, leaving your skin cleaner and looking younger inside out.

The moist heat also increases the effect of certain body treatments, enhancing ayurvedic and mud treatments. Essential oils are atomized with the steam and are absorbed into your body through the skin and by inhalation, increasing the healing benefits of steam.

A great complement to a new basement gym, entertainment room, or even a master suite, a steam shower can be added wherever you want it. It provides a much more versatile option than many conventional showers and whirlpool tubs and gives you a world of bathing options at your fingertips.
