The foot and back massage functions provided by steam shower units give you the feeling of relaxation similar to the kind you get at a spa. These units come in two types, viz.
  • Custom Units
  • Modular Units
Your bathroom must be well-prepared before you install a modular steam shower unit. The wallpaper and the paint on the walls may get damaged due to the steam escaping from the unit, which itself is made of acrylic and fit into the standard shower footprint. The unit comprises multiple shower heads, steam dispensers, molded seats, and integral units. It allows you to have a regular bath as well as a steam shower. Some modular steam shower units also have an inbuilt whirlpool tub for you to enjoy jacuzzi. They are easy to install, and you can even replace your old bathtub with it after reconstructing your bathroom a little. They require only three to four hours for installation, and since they use the existing pipelines for water supply and drainage, you don't have to worry about additional work. The units also have textured floors that prevent slipping. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
  • The steam bath option is usually recommended in order to obtain medical benefits. However, it is very essential to consult your doctor before you use it.
  • Pregnant women, patients of diabetes and high blood pressure, and kids are advised to avoid using this kind of bath.
  • Ensure that the shower is not used immediately after completing a workout - wait for your body temperature to come down to normal before you do so.
  • You must drink a lot of water after the shower to avoid dehydration.
  • The time duration of the shower should not exceed 20 minutes. These units generally have a timer facility to remind you after a certain period of time.
A steam shower rejuvenates the skin and is a great way to relax at home after a hectic and stressful day. Now, you don't need to go to expensive health clubs or fancy spas for the perfect relaxation therapy. Enjoy!
