We are building a steam room at my house. Everyday I come from the office with full of work pressure and stress. Might it be the reason, I am experiencing a huge hair loss. My eyes are tired and have dark circles. It is very difficult for me to fall in sleep too. I tried different procedures to get sleep like concentrating on a particular point, listening to music etc. Even then it is hard to fall sleep. I heard that steam bath is good for keeping the body relaxed.  Also, I read many advantages of a steam bath.
Helps to improve the breathing and alleviates congestion.
It soothes mind and body to relieve stress and pressure.
Helps in increasing the body metabolism
Eliminate toxins and cleans the skin.
I think taking a steam bath every day might reduce my tension and help my body fresh. Is there any disadvantages for a steam bath. How long should I take the bath? I read that it is good to take a cool shower after the steam bath. And also, what are the bath and shower accessories required for a steam room? I have seen a steam shower online. Is it good to get one such?

You can overdo it in any environment.  Too much of a good thing...

The temperature range in a steam shower is 100-135 Fahrenheit.  In this environment your body heats up and causes you to sweat, providing many benefits including:
   soothing and relaxing tired muscles
   relieving tension, stress, and mental fatigue
   providing a cardiovascular workout
   increasing your metabolic rate
   improving blood circulation
   reducing arthritic discomfort
   releasing natural pain killers Beta-Endorphins and Norepinephrins
   relieving inflammation and congestion of upper respiratory mucous membranes
   increasing resistance to illness
   burning up to 300 calories, equal to running 1-3 miles
   nourishing and maintaining clear, healthy skin
   providing the ideal shaving environment

How long to stay in the environment is determined by many factors such as bathing style, health concerns, and personal preference.  Many people bathe in the traditional Finnish style which involves heating up and cooling down repeatedly.  In these instances, your entire bathing experience could take up to an hour!  Others incorporate steam into their morning routine with a 5-10 minute warm up steam before showering, during which they may shave, condition, relax, or whatever their morning routine includes.

Whatever your preference, be sure to listen to your body...  it will tell you when it has had enough.

Stay away from pre-built modular steam showers, these generally come from China with no support for installation and service later down the road.  Build a shower like you would a standard shower.  The difference would be added vapor barrier, tiled all surfaces, incorporate a bench or seat.  Then purchase the equipment separately.

For accessories, Aroma is the best and has benefits to your health.  There are so many to choose from.  A Lavender will bring peace of mind and emotional balance to your day. Lavender is known to ease insomnia, depression, stress and lower blood pressure. It is also used for its beneficial effects on asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu, coughs and sore throat.  Eucalytpus is the most popular. The fresh, revitalizing scent of AromaMist Eucalyptus Essential Oil will transform your bathing environment into a luxurious and relaxing retreat from the stress and pressures of your day.

I want to remodel my bathroom completely. So, I want install a personal steam shower in my bathroom. Steam is often used for skin care because it opens pores and allows you to perspire freely. Because of this, I decided to install a steam shower in my bathroom. Please give me some suggestion about Steam Shower, Which type of steam shower we can choose for my  bathroom...!!!!  Smiley

Congratulations on the decision to add a steam shower to your home! You will not be disappointed.

The generator can be installed in many locations including a vanity, closet, attic, utility space and basement and the only moisture that should be present would be sweat from the pipes themselves.  The drip pan is only there as a precaution should something ever go wrong, which is a rare occurrence.  Routine maintenance draining can be accomplished automatically with a valve which is piped to a drain line - you would need to do nothing!

There are many ways to best serve your particular construction constraints.  Please feel free to call one of our Technical Bathing Specialists at 800-707-2862 to review your installation.  We would be more than happy to speak with you or your contractor to answer all questions and find the best location and design for your home.

We are excited to assist you in bringing this fundamental means of relaxation and restoration into your home!
