Benefits of a steam shower

Are you looking for an undoubtedly luxurious addition for your bathroom renovation? Those who want to create a beautiful, spa-like retreat to escape from the stresses of their lives may consider installing a steam shower as part of their new bathroom.

In addition to functioning like a regular shower, a steam shower generates steam to deliver a truly spa-like experience.

"When compared to a regular shower, the steam shower offers a wider range of health benefits," according to "For instance, steam showers can strengthen the immune system and make the cardiovascular system even stronger. Also, the main symptoms of chronic pain and rheumatism can be reduced."

Many steam showers come with a wide range of amenities that add to their luxurious feel as well. These include aromatherapy, CD connections, iPod hookups, telephone receivers, timers, benches, acupuncture massage, fluorescent mood lighting, ceiling rain showers, multiple shower jets, body sprays and foot massages.

These showers are available in many different styles and sizes, so they can easily be incorporated into any bathroom space.

And, those who worry they'll be a nightmare to clean should think again. Experts say many come equipped with an ozone sterilization system and simple push-button cleaning.
