People have been using steam bathing to cleanse and purify for centuries.  The Greeks, Romans, Japanese, Native Americans, Icelandic cultures, and many others have long utilized the many health benefits of steam.

Just a few to note:

A few tips to get the most from your steam shower while you are in the planning stages:

  • Sizing is one of the most important parts in the function of your shower.  The larger the shower- the more powerful generator you are going to need to produce enough steam to fill the shower.  If you underestimate or try to cut costs with a smaller generator, you will end up disappointed in the functionality.
  • Try to choose a material for the walls of your shower that absorbs the least moisture for the most cost effective and best function from your steam generator.
  • The shower needs to be completely enclosed- you want to keep all of that glorious steam in one spot for you to enjoy!
  • Think about what type of control system you would like.  There are digital options, with apps that sync to your phone, standard controls, etc. and we can discuss them all in more detail.
