FAQs on Steam bath
Q. How much water does a steam room /session use?
This varies depending on the sizing of the steam generator; Parvus model uses approx two litre of water and 1 unit of electricity for a 15 minute session.
Q. Can we use a steam enclosure for regular shower too?
Yes, we can. Steam Pro always recommends that a shower head be installed in the steam enclosure so that a steam session is followed by a regular shower to cool down after steam therapy session.
Q. How long should one sit in the steam room?
There is no fixed time period, you should let your body decide. Enjoy the continuous steam flow of STEAM PRO, let your body soak in the vapour, enjoy the soothing heat, and when you feel the need, switch off the steam and take a shower. A typical steam session lasts 10 minutes. Be careful that steam causes dehydration so limit session length to a maximum of 15 minutes and rehydrate before and after every steam session.
Q. What should one wear for a steam session?
In order for the session to be most effective, the more your body is exposed, the better. It is necessary to sweat out the toxins. However, in commercial spaces like gyms, it is highly recommended to wear flip-flops and towel in order to avoid contact with other people’s sweat/toxins. Jewellery, watches, glasses and such accessories are better left out lest they malfunction due to the high humidity in the steam room.
Q. What are the effects of Steam Bath on the hair?
The moist steam air hydrates and nourishes the scalp. The heat in the room helps blood flow/circulation in the scalp thus helping in the growth of new hair follicles, promoting hair growth.
Q. What is the effect of steam on the skin?
The excessive sweating in the steam room opens up the pores and helps to cleanse the skin by removing impurities. Steam may also help in treating acne due to its ability to remove dirt and dead skin by warm condensation.
Q. What is Hyperthermia, and how does it help?
The normal temperature of the body is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. When the body temperature is raised higher than normal, it is called a state of hyperthermia. Organisms invading our body cannot live in the body when its temperature is raised, Therefore, when the body goes into hyperthermia, those organisms die.
Q. Is having a steam bath at home a good real estate investment?
According to several publications, steam bathing has become extremely popular in the recent years and having a personal steam installation in your home is definitely an asset to your home and personal health. It is considered a luxury with high aspiration value.
Q. Can my existing tub/shower area be converted to a steam room?
In most cases yes….quite easily. In fact, Steam Pro takes pride in converting the existing shower areas into value-added steam rooms. On inspection, our expert plumber and electrician will advise you how it can be executed.
Q. Can I use Aromatherapy products in my Steam Pro chamber?
Yes, Aromatherapy enhances the steam experience. In fact, Steam Pro provides an attachment in the steam room near the steam head in which you can put a few drops of aroma oil of your choice and experience the enhanced ambience of your steam room. (Please ensure that you do not put the oil on the mouth of the steam while the generator is ON or hot)
Q. Do I need an exhaust fan in the steam enclosure?
NO. There is no need to have an exhaust fan in a home steam room. Steam Pro recommends that the same area be used for a shower to rinse off after steam. The shower serves to condense the steam. An exhaust fan outside the steam enclosure but inside the bathroom is recommended to ensure ventilation of waste air.
Q. Does Steam Pro take up any usable space in the bathroom?
No. The compact Steam Pro unit can even fit under/besides the vanity case of your existing bathroom. It is wall mounted which makes it possible to install without taking any floor space in the bathroom.
