A fever usually means the body is suffering from some type of infection, caused by bacteria or a virus. When we get a fever, we know we must be sick. However, did you know that creating an artificial fever in the body can promote the body’s immunity to fight infection and other ailments? That’s where steamtherapy comes in to boost immunity and relax the body.

Fever

With the use of steamtherapy and the therapeutic effects of steam on the body, steam showers can be used to create an artificial fever in the body. The results are increased immunity, increased production of white blood cells and a surprisingly long list of health benefits from the use of bathing with and relaxing in steam.

In essence, steam showers increase the temperature of the body, much like a fever does. The normal body temperature for a healthy adult is between 97.7 degrees Fahrenheit and 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. When the body’s temperature goes above this average, the body’s immune system is kick started and more white blood cells are created, making it easier to fight illness.

Hippocrates believed that an artificial fever would encourage the body to fight infection and sickness. He hypothesized that a fever could help the body overcome and heal more quickly from common aliments. Hippocrates’ theories became a part of Ancient Greek medicine and steamtherapy is commonly used today for medicinal reasons.

Steam Therapy

Countries around the world have long used steam for bathing because of the many health benefits associated with it. The Japanese, Chinese and Native Americans are a few of the cultures that use steam in bathing to treat illness. The Mayans, Romans and Greeks also bathed with steam.

The warm steam makes the body sweat; during sweating, the body excretes toxins and waste. The result is purified, clean skin that looks and feels healthier. The skin is also soothed and dry skin disappears.

It is also believed that steam helps treat these conditions:

-Depression

-Hypertension

-Allergies

-Anxiety

-Fatigue

-Pain & Sore Muscles

-Respiratory Issues

-Cardiovascular Issues

The respiratory issues helped by steam include asthma, bronchitis, congestion, allergies, and more. Steam also helps with inflammation, relaxation, insomnia and common colds and the flu. Furthermore, steam helps with cardiovascular issues by increasing blood circulation in the body. The steam encourages blood vessels to expand.

Hydrotherapy

Steamtherapy increases blood circulation and helps heal sore muscles. Hydrotherapy in all-in-one steam showers also soothes tired muscles through massage. Body massage jets in the shower panels deliver streams of water that massage pressure points in the body. Taking a relaxing steam shower before and after a workout will help decrease soreness and muscle aches.

Through the daily use of steam showers, you will increase your metabolism, increase your body’s chances of fighting infection, enhance your relaxation and expose yourself to a whole host of beneficial effects to your health. You will look better and feel better as steam cleanses the skin and soothes the muscles and the body’s respiratory system.

Remodeling your bathroom can be a freeing experience. You finally get to make some decisions to change up the aspects of your bathroom that you’re tired of and you get to choose some cool new looks for one of your favorite spaces. During the remodeling process, you may want to consider installing a walk in bathtub.

Walk in bathtubs are a great addition to homes for people with limited mobility. With these tubs, people who cannot take a bath or shower by themselves can now enjoy the independence they once had. If you’re remodeling your bathroom, you may want to go with a walk in bathtub, versus a regular bathtub.

Walk in bathtubs can be enjoyed by all adults, not just those with limited mobility. Furthermore, if you do not plan on doing a second remodel to your bathroom later on, you may want to install a walk in bathtub now to avoid having to switch out your bathtub again. You might as well get a bathtub you can enjoy now that will have added functionality for any person.

If you’re considering a walk in bathtub for your remodel, browse the following information about our walk in bathtubs:

Safety

Walk in bathtubs are built to be safe and to decrease falls in the bathroom. The walk in bathtubs on SteamShowersInc.com come with contoured built-in seats, textured bottoms and built-in grab bars for your safety and convenience. Remember that safety means independence to take a bath on your own whenever you want to without depending on someone else. These tubs are also ADA compliant.

Planning Ahead

You may not want to perform another remodel to the bathroom in your house, so consider a walk in bathtub for when an older relative may visit or come to live with you. If you plan on keeping your house for many years, you may also want the walk in bathtub for your own use.

Shower

There are walk in bathtubs on SteamShowersInc.com that include a handheld showerhead. This makes the bathtub easy to use for showering as well as taking a bath.

Music is a huge part of our lives, and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t listen to music during one of our favorite activities: taking a relaxing steam shower. Music helps us decompress and is cathartic; our favorite songs can be the perfect addition to the “me time” we hold dear. The F9 Steam Shower Remote Control makes it possible to enjoy our favorite songs during a steam shower with the use of Bluetooth technology.

The Ariel Platinum DZ984F9 Steam Shower is an example of a steam shower enclosure that comes with the waterproof F9 Steam Shower Remote Control. Using this remote control, the user can control all of the functions of the steam shower, including the fan, time setting, chromatherapy lighting, temperature, steam and music. The remote control acts like an iPod for use during your shower, and it’s waterproof so you don’t have to worry about getting it wet.

Imagine relaxing on one of the wooden stools in the DZ984F9. With the simple use of the remote control, you can change between your favorite songs, fast forward and rewind and change the volume without having to stand up and touch the steam shower control keypad on the wall of the shower stall. In the remote interface, you can search songs by all music, album and artist. Furthermore, this unit has a FM Radio and surround sound speakers so the music will sound great as well.

It’s also possible to connect your cellular phone via Bluetooth to the steam shower computer. You can’t take your phone into the shower with you (it isn’t waterproof like the F9 Remote Control device), but you can set up a playlist or open a radio app and leave the phone outside of the shower. Meanwhile, the  music on your phone will play through the surround sound speakers in the shower and you can enjoy it.

Putting your personal music on the F9 Remote Control is easy. First, make sure the remote control is charged. Then, connect it to a PC or Mac computer with the USB cable. You will need to format the remote control. Open the Setting option in the main menu on the remote control and select USB. Wait for the remote control to connect to the computer (do not hit okay during this process). Then drag files onto it, just like you would with a common thumb drive device.

In addition to listening to your favorite music in this shower, the DZ984F9 comes with a multitude of steam shower features that will transform your showering experience. First of all, this unit contains 20 acupressure massage jets, including 10 on both of the side panels. It also has a 6KW steam generator, rainfall ceiling shower and a modern circular steam shower enclosure shape. It measures 59” by 59” by 87.9” and is retrofit to standard bathtub size.
