What Is a Steam Shower?

A steam shower is a moisture-sealed shower enclosure that produces steam to create a warm and humid environment. 

Steam showers are installed with special equipment to produce steam before, during, or after your shower. Instead of hot water, the steam shower uses a steam generator.

You can turn the steam on or off and adjust the temperature using digital controls. Some steam showers can add aromas like eucalyptus or lavender for added health benefits. This at-home spa treat has a ton of other health benefits!

Steam Shower Health Benefits

What Is a Steam ShowerSteam Showers help with congestion

Steam showers are known to clear congestion. The heat from the steam opens up mucous membranes – making it easier for you to breathe. It can also be used to treat colds and allergies as it breaks up the congestion in the sinuses and lungs. Breathing in warm, humid air can reduce the symptoms of cold, or even prevent it!

Steam Showers are good for the skin

Steam showers also help detoxify skin and unclog pores. Even as little as 15 minutes in the steam room can open up your pores and eliminate toxins! Open pores allow your skin to breathe, helping it function properly. Steam and humidity can also help moisturize your skin! Steam therapy can help you get your glow back!

Steam Showers help burn calories

Steam showers can help reduce water weight, causing your weight to drop. Sitting in a hot steam room can certainly help you lose weight!

Steam Showers help burn calories

Steam showers not only provide you with health benefits but also environmental benefits. You can save on both water and energy by getting a new steam shower! A 30-minute steam shower uses as much water as a traditional shower uses in about a minute.
