What can steam heat do?
Steam Helps Respiratory Conditions
Steam inhalation is an effective treatment in respiratory conditions and is highly recommended for treatment of the common cold, sinusitis, bronchitis, alllergies and asthma.
Whether you seek to reduce stress, raise your metabolism, ease the symptoms of a bad cold, improve your complexion, alleviate the pain of a sports injury or prevent such damage in the first place, Custom Shower & Steam provides these therapeutic solutions and more.
Increases Body Metabolism
Sweating is therapeutic, but so too are other physiological effects of steam therapy. Dramatic effects derived from the circulatory changes are caused by the intense heat exposure. Steam treatments have a stimulating effect on the cardiovascular system. The heart rate increases as much as 50% to 75% during a 10-20 minute steam session. The pulse rate increases from 75 beats per minute to between 100-150 beats per minute during a 15-20 minute treatment. This increase blood circulation, but not blood pressure, since the heat also causes the tiny blood vessels in the skin to expand, accommodating the increased blood flow.
Nourishes Skin with Nutrients
The increased blood flow brings vital nutrients to skin and subcutaneous tissue, stimulating cellular activity and growth. The parts of the skin that normally suffer from poor circulation benefit especially from this treatment.
"Apart from the immune system stimulating effects of sweat therapy, many tout it as one of the most effective and painless detoxifying treatments available. In a steam shower, the natural cooling process through perspiration is eliminated and therefore allows little or no loss of the valuable body heat necessary for effective detoxification or immune-boosting therapies. Unlike a dry sauna, steam does not dehydrate the skin nor allow toxin-filled perspiration to dry prior to rinsing."
The steam relaxes stiff joints and muscles, deeply cleanses your skin, helps eliminate toxins, and boosts your immune system.
