What are the Benefits of using a Steam Room?
Steam rooms make you sweat, which can help unclog pores and give your skin a plumped
up, flushed, glow-y look, thanks to the increase in blood flow the heat causes.
Steam rooms can help acne-prone skin by unclogging pores and balancing oil production.
Aroma Therapy oils can be used to create scents which may help you to relax, alter
moods, ease muscle tension, cure and prevent cold and flu symptoms, combat stress
and clear sinuses.
Steam helps to relax stiff joints after workouts and can help with the recovery process.
Steam rooms cleanse your skin, boosts your immune system and helps to remove toxins.
During a steam bath there is an increase in blood flow and circulation. This is due
to the heat causing the blood vessels in the skin to expand. Blood pressure does
not change during a steam bath even though heart rate can almost double resulting
in a similar state to a cardiovascular workout.
With the raising of the body temperature you are forced into a state of hyperthermia,
similar to a fever, and the body’s natural defence is to sweat out impurities. Invading
organisms can not live in the body when the temperature is raised above normal and
the organisms die.
"THE ONLY DETOXIFICATION PROGRAM THAT HAS PROVEN SUCCESSFUL IN REMOVING FAT STORED
TOXINS FROM THE BODY IS HYPERTHERMIA, OR HEAT STRESS DETOXIFICATION. HEAT STRESS
CAN ALSO REMOVE CALCIUM DEPOSITS FROM THE BLOOD VESSELS AND BREAK DOWN SCAR TISSUE
FROM THEIR WALLS." - ZANE GARD, M.D.
