When was the last time you really relaxed? It’s hard to find those moments of peace in your busy life, but simple wellness routines can make a huge difference. In recent years, more and more people have installed a steam shower in their homes. Far from being pure luxury, steam showers may rejuvenate your body and mind with multiple wellness benefits.

So, what does a steam shower do for you? Find out how installing a steam shower may make a difference in your mood and overall wellness.


You come home after a long day at work and step into your steam shower. Tension melts away from your muscles. Your steam shower is the perfect environment for relaxation, enveloping you in warmth.

This soothes tired muscles and helps relieve and manage stress. You get to spend time in an oasis where nobody can bother you, and with MrSteam steam showers you can also add other benefits, such as colour therapy, aromatherapy, and your favourite relaxing music.


You know how a really hot shower makes you feel clean? A steam shower is even better! The steam opens your pores and encourages you to sweat, flushing out impurities and refreshing your skin. This natural detoxification process improves your appearance and health.

Inhaling steam may also help relieve respiratory symptoms. It opens your nasal passages and loosens mucus. If you have a cold, hopping in your steam shower may provide temporary relief from symptoms. Same if you are being bothered by allergies. It may also help with irritation caused by dry air. It will not help you recover from a cold or respiratory infection faster but may help reduce your suffering while you fight it off.


When your body is exposed to warm air and water, your blood vessels dilate, improving circulation. This then delivers oxygen and nutrients to your muscles and organs. It may also help maintain low blood pressure by causing your blood vessels to relax and stay relaxed. Overall, it will keep your circulation active and flowing.

This may reduce the risk of heart disease. It also feels good, especially if you have been out in the cold and everything feels tight…your blood vessels contract in the cold to preserve heat in your body. Steam will open them out again and help you warm up faster. You won’t just feel warmer, you will be warmer.


Everyone seems to be stressed these days. If you have had a bad day (or week, or…) then some time in a steam shower helps. The warmth, humidity, and ability to hide from your problems for a bit all help.

In fact, a steam shower stimulates the production of endorphins, which may improve your mood and reduce anxiety. You will feel mentally rejuvenated when you step out. Luxuriate in the steam and appreciate one of the finer things in life. Having your own steam shower means that you have access to relaxation whenever you need it.


Steam showers may help your muscles recover after an intense workout or a competition. A steam shower soon after a workout or an event helps relax your muscles and reduces your risk of experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness…that’s that ache that shows up the next day. It may also help preserve your muscle strength and soothe nerve endings.

The heat also increases blood flow to your muscles, speeding up the healing process. Also, it feels good and helps you wind down and relax after the intensity of competition. Make a steam shower part of your recovery routine, ideally as soon as possible after finishing and cooling down.


To get these benefits, you must use your steam shower properly. Here are some of our tips:

  1. Stay hydrated: Steam causes you to sweat, which may dehydrate you. Make sure to drink plenty of water both before your steam shower to maximize detoxification and after to replenish water lost to sweat.
  2. Use essential oils: Add your favourite oils to the steam generator to add aromatherapy to your experience. Always use essential oils responsibly. Don’t use oils if you have damaged skin and if you have an allergic reaction, don’t use that oil again.
  3. Set the mood: Dim the lights or use our ChromaTherapy add-on, choosing colours you find relaxing (blues and greens are often best). You can also use our MusicTherapy add-on to play quiet, soothing music. Experiment until you find the perfect combination.
  4. Gradual cooling: Don’t step out of the steam shower and immediately dry off. If you do, it will feel shockingly cold. Let your body cool down slowly and dry yourself steadily so you reacclimate to normal room temperature.

Your wellness routine is part of your life. Incorporating a steam shower may help you relax, relieve stress, detox your skin, improve circulation, and speed recovery after working out. They are holistic and anyone may benefit! Steam showers are part of your journey to health and happiness.
