Let your body breathe

Posted on Updated on

Your body deserves to be pampered. It deserves to breathe. It deserves to come alive. One of the ways to achieve this is by having a steam bath. A steam bath makes your body come alive by elevating the heat rate of your body and helping to boost your metabolism. As a matter of fact, a steam bath is equal to that   of taking a brisk walk.

While you are sweating, about 15 to 20 percent of toxins are removed through the skin. Sweating has proved to be an effective tool in flushing out toxins and disease. It also maintains optimal physical as well as mental health. With regular steam baths, you can help keep the skin toxin free and oxygenated.

Steam baths are generally called sauna. Sauna includes actual saunas, steam baths and sweat lodges. All these generate abundant sweat to detoxify the body and relax the mind.

Why you need a massage

  Even after a steam bath, you still need a massage.  A massage is more than just pampering your body. It does much more.

1. It helps ease muscle strain and improves circulation.

2. It boosts your immune system

3. It encourages a healthy sleep pattern

4. It improves the skin glow

5. It eases mental and emotional stress

6. Deeper state of calm is attained

7. Significant stress reduction

8. Detoxifies

FACIALS too

Don’t ever think facials are for faces with spots or blemish. It is also an avenue for your face to breathe. Facials typically involve massages, which aid blood circulation. The relaxation of the facial muscles helps slow the onset of wrinkles on the face. Skin cells can be renewed by this technique, which also reduces puffiness and sagging.

With a massage, the relaxing, healing and therapeutic benefits are truly a blessing to those who get the treatment done.

What do you gain from steam bath?

You lose weight: Sauna is similar to mild exercise; it burns about 300 calories per average session. Regular steam baths at a spa (some have sauna equipment at home) combined with a healthy diet, and moderate exercise will help you lose weight stay fit and healthy.

Your skin is cleansed: According to carmentalrs.com, after a steam bath, a shower cleanses your skin far more thoroughly than just taking a shower. It makes it soft and healthy with immediate noticeable effects. Also, by enhancing circulation, it stimulates a surge of blood flowing to the skin; sweeping away impurities and flooding poorly nourished areas with nutrients.

You are relaxed: Stress build-up creates tension in the body manifesting in various aches and pains. The heat and humidity of the sauna diffuses the pain and relaxes tired muscles. When taken in the evening, steam bath allows tense muscles and sore limbs to relax.
