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.

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.
