STEAM THERAPY FOR BEAUTY AND HEALTH
Since ancient times, steam therapy has been used by traditional healing systems around the world to improve and maintain good health and beauty. The benefits of steam therapy address all levels of the physiology, while simultaneously providing the mental relaxation and peace that today’s clients desire.
In the warm, moist atmosphere of the steam bath, cardiac output is increased and circulation improves, especially to the skin and subcutaneous tissue, bringing vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells. The skin becomes softer, more hydrated and able to resist eczema, blemishes or other problems. You will see improved tone, elasticity, texture and a healthy, fresh color.
During the treatment the body’s temperature increases; the resulting perspiration allows for the excretion of toxins and impurities, including toxic metals, which can severely compromise one’s health. Soreness and fatigue melt away, and you will look and feel energized, balanced and rejuvenated. Enrich the effects of steam therapy further by adding essential oils, muds, specialized products or massage to the treatment.
Stress Reduction – The most immediate benefit of the Russian Steamy Spa Treatment is relaxation. In just a few minutes, the gentle warmth of the Steam softens hard knots of stress by loosening up all the muscles, and allows you to deeply relax in the privacy and silence of the treatment. With the addition of custom, dried herbal blends placed directly into the steam generator, you will experience deeper benefits of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Improved Skin Conditions– The skin is our body’s largest organ and is essential in eliminating impurities. As you sweat in the Steam , the pores of the skin begin to open, and built-up sebum and impurities move out. Dead skin cells are softened and exfoliated so new softer skin can emerge.
Immune Booster– Traditionally, the benefits of steaming include increased energy, decreased incidence of infections, and fewer colds and flu. A good long sweat bath at the early onset of a cold or flu can help ward off the disease before it manifests as actual symptoms. Many regular steam or saunas bathers have experienced these results.
Muscle Pain Relief – Steam therapy has been found to significantly reduce muscular pain and spasms. Pain is found to be alleviated in just one session and the benefit can last for several days after the treatment. Regular steam treatments 2 to 3 times per week have shown to have profound relief for those having muscle pain due to injury, menstruation pain, headaches, fibromyalgia and low back pain.
Purification ( Detoxification )– Heat experienced during a Steam treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the million of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements of urine; it is for this reason that the skin is sometimes called the third kidney.
Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of carcinogenic metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.
Symptoms of toxicity: allergies, acne, anxiety, burning skin, brain fog, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, insomnia, loss of dexterity, low body temperature, memory loss, mood swings, muscle and joint pain and poor concentration.
Inflammation and Circulation – Steam therapy assists in alleviating inflammation and edema. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help eliminate the edema which in turn helps end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed the healing process.
