Steam Rooms

Heat is a therapeutic agent and has long been used for healing in many cultures. All of our body’s functions depend on chemical reactions. And chemical reactions are directly affected by heat (either accelerating or slowing in direct proportion to available heat energy). This is bound to have an effect on our tissues and our health.

A state of hyperthermia exists when body temperature rises above its normal state of 98.6ºF. Although often misunderstood as a symptom of disease, fever actually is a part of the body’s natural healing response. Steam bath treatments elicit similar healing responses in the body, and consequently are often called “artificial fevers”.

During a fever, the functioning of the immune system is stimulated, while the growth of bacteria and viruses is forced to slow down. The production of white bloodcells, the primary agents of the immune system, is increased, as is the rate of their release into the blood stream. The generation of anti-bodies speeds up, as does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein that also has powerful cancer-fighting properties. A steam vapor aromaSpa® raises your body core temperature to effective levels within just 10 minutes of use!
