6 Reasons to Get A Home Steam Bath
Posted on 17 March 2021
Nothing is better than a day at the spa. Treating yourself to a day of pampering and enjoying space to relax and unwind is important for both health and wellbeing. Now, it is easier than ever to create an at-home spa with a new home steam bath. Steam baths make a fantastic addition to any master bathroom or home gym. Regular home steam bath use provides a range of benefits to everything from workout recovery to skincare. Unlike saunas, steam baths can be installed with little to no changes to your existing space. If you are trying to choose between purchasing a home sauna or steam shower for your home, here is a helpful guide with six reasons you should buy a new home steam bath.
1. Post-Workout Recovery
One of the best parts of a home steam bath is that you can integrate its use into your fitness routine. Most athletes are aware of the powers of steam and use steam baths to improve body aches and pains, reduce muscle soreness, and speed-up the recovery process. Depending on your steam bath size, it can also be a great place to do gentle stretches and meditation before or after a workout. Your new home steam bath will be the perfect space to visualize your athletic goals while helping your body to recover from strenuous workouts and races.
Whether you choose to use your steam bath before or after a workout, the mighty steam will provide a host of benefits to help you make the most of your training schedule. Instead of frequent and expensive visits to the spa or gym, create your own steam room with the help of companies like SaunaFin.
2. Save on Space
Many homeowners are not sure if they have the space or budget to purchase a sauna or steam bath when it comes to home spas. Thankfully, most steam baths can be installed directly into your existing shower. Unlike a sauna, most steam baths do not require major renovations or a large amount of space for installation. However, depending on the size and type of shower you have, you could choose to build a separate room to create a large steam bath. The Steamist SMP series steam shower makes it easier than ever to build a steam shower in your home. Compared to a sauna, the installation process is easy and straightforward. Within a few hours, you will be able to gain all the benefits of regular steam bath use without compromising on space.
3. Improve Respiratory Symptoms
Steam naturally opens the sinuses and helps to clear the respiratory system. If you suffer from allergies or frequent colds, regular steam bath use can help you to manage your symptoms. Just like how a long, hot shower can help you to feel better if you have a cold or flu, a home steam bath will use less water than a shower while still providing all the benefits of steam exposure, helping to alleviate congestion, coughs, and sinus headaches. If you or your family suffer from allergies and asthma, a steam bath may be what you need.
4. Treat the Skin to a Spa Day, Every Day
Steam can work wonders on the skin. The heat and moisture of a home steam bath can open pores to help flush dirt, oil, and make-up. Clean and clear skin prevents pimples, blackheads, and breakouts and helps improve the look and feel of the skin. Steam baths can be used as part of your regular skincare routine to help to reduce breakouts, improve hydration, and reduce discolouration. Although it may take some time, your regular steam bath use will soon revitalize your entire complexion.
5. Invest In Your Wellness Routine
Many people dream of a robust wellness routine to help them manage their physical and mental health. Instead of dreaming of a wellness routine, make it a reality with a new home steam bath. Your dream wellness routine is often limited by budget and geography, and it’s unrealistic to plan for multiple, expensive visits to a spa every week. With steam baths, you can enjoy a slice of affordable luxury every day from the comfort of your own home. Not only will the heat and steam provide tons of health benefits, but your steam bath will also create the perfect environment to relax and unwind. Many homeowners choose to use their steam bath as a place for meditation and reflection on the day. It is ultimately up to you how you choose to use the space with a home steam bath.
6. Conscious Water Usage
After a long day at work or a challenging workout, most people like to take a long shower to wash away their pain and worries. However, a long shower can use a lot of water and cause your hydro bill to skyrocket. Thankfully, steam baths use a lot less water than a traditional shower. Whereas a shower uses approximately 150 gallons of water in 20 minutes, a steam shower would only use two gallons of water over the same period. If you are looking for an eco-friendly way to integrate spa-quality experiences into your everyday life, look no further than a home steam bath.
