What is a Steam Bath?

steam bathA steam bath is an ancient bathing process where moist steam is used to cleanse and relax the body. It traces its origin to the famed Roman baths or the Turkish ‘Hamam.’ Modern steam baths are enclosed spaces or small rooms filled with moist steam created by a Steamist steam generator. The steam mist is sprayed through special nozzles in the room/shower. 

What are the Benefits of a Steam Bath?

A steam bath can work wonders for your physical & mental health, bringing a host of wellness benefits: 

  • Better skin health
  • Improved hair texture
  • Healthier heart & improved circulation
  • Weight loss
  • Detoxification
  • Reduced congestion & allergies
  • Stress relief
  • Muscle relief 
  • Sound sleep

How is Steam Produced? 

Steam baths rely on the scientific procedure of converting water into steam by heating. Modern steam baths are powered by a steam generator that heats the water supplied through the water line. The electric heating element of the Steamist steam generator raises the water to boiling point. The steam produced is carried through a pipe to the steam shower and released through nozzles on the steam head. 

How to Control an Elite Steam Bath?

The steam shower generator is usually hidden away, so a user interface called the ‘controls’ are provided to operate it. The controls allow you to manage and monitor your steam bath session. You may install the controls inside the steam shower enclosure or outside it. Internal controls are more popular as one doesn’t have to leave the bath enclosure to adjust the temperature. Basic control operations include switching on or turning off the Steamist steam generator and temperature control. Advanced options in  Elite steam baths include wireless remotes, timers, digital displays, touch screens, and indicator lights. Selecting the perfect model can be challenging with the multitude of steam generator options available. Consider heating capacity, warranties, and power output while making the final choice.
