Steam rooms or ‘Steam showers’ as we like to call them, were once the reserve of only the affluent or only seen in gyms and health spas. If you had not considered adding steam to your bathroom wish list now is the time to do so. Let me tell you why; there is no denying that most of the gains one gets from a steam room are linked to health, and why shouldn’t we all share the secret of the Uber health conscious? There is a high relaxation gain to be had when spending time in a steam room, it eases stress and helps clear the mind (especially with your favourite essential oils ‘flavouring’ the steam). In a world that is so constantly demanding a steam room (steam shower) can give you a short escape where you rejuvenate and reenergise.
Among the many benefits of steam is detoxification. There are many products and diet plans on the market today that promise to get rid of toxins in the body, but none of them can rival the effectiveness of a steam shower . Our bodies pick up a lot of toxins from the environment, the foods we eat, and substances we put inside our bodies. Biologically, the body has evolved four ways of getting rid of wastes and toxins in the body – through urine, faeces, sweat and exhaled air. A steam session capitalises on the bodys ability to sweat toxins away. With the average body containing more than 2.5 million sweat glands, the cumulative effect of sweating is a 30% reduction in the toxins that have built up inside the body. It is a relaxing and effortless way to detox.
