Steam shower

A steam shower is a type of bathing where a humidifying steam generator produces water vapor that is dispersed around a person's body. A steam shower is essentially a steam room that offers the typical features of a bathroom shower. steam showers are generally found in self-contained enclosures that prevent the water vapor from escaping into the rest of the room, avoiding damage to drywall, paint, or wallpaper. A steam shower can be a social affair if the enclosure sits more than one person. steam showers combine the functionality of a standard steam room with many additional features including a shower. steam showers are available in a variety of materials, including but not limited to tile, acrylic, fiberglass, stone, and wood.

steam showers are the modern day equivalent to the steam baths of ancient Rome and the traditional Finnish saunas. Historically, wet steam baths have been used for cleansing, relaxation, and detoxification and as social activity. In Scandinavia and the Baltics, saunas and steam baths were often family activities. In fact, most cultures have a tradition of some kind of steam room, including Native Americans huts and Japanese, dating to the 12th century. Warm, moist air opens the pores, increases blood pressure and stimulates the sweat glands. Hot steam relaxes muscles after a workout and opens bronchial passages in asthma sufferers. It cleans the skin of impurities through the pores and can be more beneficial and less aging than soap and water. Hot steam is even said to improve the immune system because it tricks the body into thinking it has a fever and therefor stimulates the body’s natural defenses.

Anyone can partake of a steam shower, although there are some groups of people who should refrain or seek the opinion of their medical provider.
