by Jun 8, 2017Makeovers & Renovations

Have you ever thought of converting your powder room into a health room?

By adding a steam shower in your bathroom renovation plans, you can change this once mundane room into a sanctuary that relieves stress, improves blood circulation all while relaxing your muscles.

It’s true! A steam shower is a great way to enjoy remarkable health benefits of steam bathing while at home.

Renown of Old

Think about it, from the Ancient Greeks to the Great Romans, steam was a healing therapy used for eons. Why not include this ancient therapy in your upcoming bathroom renovation?

Here are three fantastic reasons why this would be a perfect plan for your bathroom.

1. Steam Bathing Relieves the Symptoms of Common Colds

Steam therapy is a well know relief for the symptoms of a cold. It has even been scientifically proven by several journals and various MD’s around the globe.

In early 2017, doctors had to deal with a surge in the number of cases of summer flu in Southern Australia. The number peaked at a six-year high. Despite repeated calls for citizens to get vaccinated, the surge of common colds and flu did not stop.

Now, wouldn’t it be a great relief to include a personal ‘cold reliever’ in your bathroom renovations plan? With a steam shower you can.

2. Steam Bathing Is an Anxiety Soother

How do you know when someone is mentally unwell? Hallucinations, paranoia, restlessness and confusion are common symptoms.

According to healthdirect.gov.au, the most prevalent mental disorder in Australia is anxiety disorder. It affects at least one out of four Australians.

If you haven’t already been affected, you can avoid being part of this statistic by adding a steam shower in your new bathroom design. A relaxing steam bath for about 15 minutes as you close the day goes a long way in relaxing your mind, aids you in falling asleep and helps you attain longer duration of REM cycles.

3. Detoxing and Circulation Enhancement

In Sydney around 15 percent of the population are active smokers, and almost 50 percent of its people are categorized as obese. Thus, getting rid of those toxins and enhancing your circulation should be a priority when doing bathroom renovations in Sydney.

As you take a steam shower, your blood flow, and circulation increases. This is because heat causes your blood vessels to dilate and the heart rate to increase. Also, your pores open up, and your body naturally expunges toxins as you wash them away.

To wind up, installing a steam shower as you do bathroom renovations in Sydney is no longer a luxurious addition. It’s investing in your health and sanity.
