Covid-19 and lockdowns have brought about a change in consumer habits leading evolving changing buying patterns. More impetus on home automation.

Your Wife & Kids Want Automation!

Spending more time @ home, families want to automate their daily chores. According to Vijay Babu, VP (home appliances) at LG India, “there is a distinct trend towards buying large capacity appliances”. According to executives of top manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic, this trend is expected to continue through the festive season. Families now want lesser grocery store visits and therefore need larger refrigerators to store more food. They want a theater like experience at home and hence larger TVs.But what about wellness at home?

Covid19: Worse for Smokers, E-Cig Users

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause illnesses to people. The novel coronavirus or covid19 is a new respiratory virus first identified in December 2019 in China. Covid19 is more contagious than the stains that were earlier identified as SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and MERS  (middle east respiratory syndrome). Older population and those with underlying illnesses are most susceptible to covid19. Smokers too should definitely be wary.

Regular Steam Therapy can help you kick the habit

Cigarette Smoking and Coronavirus

Smokers are at no greater risk to catch the coronavirus. However, smokers are more likely to experience severe symptoms and complications, if infected. Preliminary research suggests that smokers infected with Covid19 are nearly 1.5 times more likely to have severe symptoms. They are 2.5 times more likely to be admitted to the ICU, need mechanical ventilation, or even die compared to non-smokers. (source: New England Journal of Medicine, American Lung Association).

E-Cigarette Vapers/smokers and Coronavirus

Research suggests vaping affects respiratory health, decreases the body’s ability to respond to infection and increases the severity of lung diseases. Vaping impedes lung’s function to clear our mucous, further increasing chances of infections. It compromises immunity and health of respiratory channels.

Clearly, catching a lung infection is not advisable, especially when there’s a global pandemic we’re all in.  While research into e-cigarettes and their effects on lung health is still at nascent stage, the safest option to prevent any serious risks is to stop use of all types of cigarettes.

Steam Inhalation: A Rehab for Smokers and Coronavirus Patients

Along with the lung damaging effects of smoking, congestion, cough and wheezing is common amongst regular smokers. All these are indications of an unhealthy lung function. If healthy, lungs and are able to detox themselves naturally, the mucus would not accumulate or create complications.

Steam is scientifically proven to ease breathing and improve lung function. Inhaling steam 15 to 20 minutes or better still full-body steam bathing brings instant relief. The breathing becomes easier and wheezing decreases substantially.

A  2018 study published in the Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine showed that steam therapy was an effective solution to detox the lungs. (source: healthyshots)

Steam also helps in removing the mucus from the upper airways, including the nose and throat , during a respiratory infection. (

During the Coronavirus pandemic, when our immunity should not be compromised, “Steam does help to activate the immune system” according to Dr Vichar Nigam, consultant, Internal Medicine, Columbia Asia, Pune .(source: healthyshots)

Regular steam therapy is also proven to help kick the habit. It helps detox and sweat out the tar and toxins and makes the rehabilitation process smoother. Google it!

Can Steam Therapy help Bronchitis/Asthma?

This week’s topic is based on the most rudimentary of actions – breathing! Defined simply as a process of respiration, during which air is inhaled into the lungs through the nose or mouth. We share some tips to keep the lungs happy using home remedies such as steam therapy, breathing exercises etc.

Steam Therapy works. Now possible to install in existing bathrooms without breakage or construction.

How Breathing Works:

When we breathe in or inhale, the diaphragm contracts and moves downward. This increases the space in our chest cavity and our lungs expand into it. The muscles between the ribs also help enlarge the chest cavity. They contract to pull the rib cage both upward and outward when we inhale. Pretty straightforward so far.

However, before the air reaches the lungs, it has to pass through a series of air passages called bronchial tubes. If blocked for any reason, the air will not reach the lungs.  This will hinder the oxygen in the air from reaching the blood through which it is transported to the body tissues.

Bronchitis & Asthma:

Bronchitis and asthma are two inflammatory airway conditions.  Acute bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the airways. It may be caused by viral or bacterial infections.  Long time exposure to environment irritants like tobacco, smoke or chemicals may cause Chronic Bronchitis.

Asthma is a condition caused by the tightening and swelling of the muscles around the airways , thus causing the airways to narrow.
When asthma and acute bronchitis occur together, the condition is called asthmatic bronchitis.

Common Triggers:

  • Tobacco smoke, including E cigarettes – cigarette smoking is the cause of death for one in every five people in the US
  • Pollution – according to WHO, exposure to air pollution results in 4.2 million deaths worldwide each year
  • Allergens like mold, pollen, dust etc.
  • Chemicals
  • Weather changes
  • Viral or bacterial infections

Lungs & Covid19: Covid19 is a respiratory disease which affects our lungs, throat and nose. Since the air ways of an asthmatic patient are already narrow, with  Covid19 infection, they would have  serious trouble in breathing, leading to an asthma attack, pneumonia or other serious lung related issues.

Breathe Easy with these Alternatives:

Let’s not think of medicines and treatments. Simple home remedies and therapies are all you need to keep the air we breathe safe and healthy.

10 best indoor plants that are a boon for the lungs: Aloe Vera, Snake Plant (also called Mother in laws tongue), Ferns, Bamboo Palm, Peace Lily, Spider Plant, Flamingo Lily, Ficus, Chrysanthemums, Devils ivy

Clear the lungs, clear the mucus: Steam therapy or steam inhalation that soothes and relieves distresses lung function. Hot, humid air acts as a natural expectorant (natural medicine). Steam inhalation prevents the mucous membrane from drying and causes mucosal secretions. Reduced inflammation and congestion makes respiration process smooth and easy.

Breathing Exercises: remember that regularity is very essential in order to get any results.

  • Breathing exercises or pranayam give long term relief to people with respiratory problems. But they should be done cautiously and preferably under the guidance of an expert.
  • Anulom Vilom – alternating breaths between nostrils
  • Diaphragmatic breathing
  • Chanting of OM (AUM) etc.

Practice Percussion: Chest percussion is a technique that helps drain fluid from the lungs. It involves lying with your head down, and tapping lightly on your back…from top to bottom. This makes it easier for the accumulated fluid to drain out of the lungs.

Home remedies: Half cup of ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Boil a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger in a glass of milk and add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Mix and drink.

Licorice or mulethi is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties.  Add half a teaspoon of licorice powder to your cup of hot steaming tea.

Sip hot water the whole day . Add a 2inch stem of Giloy plant to it or some leaves of holy Basil for more effectivity.


Beat these 3 hurdles to a long life – Diseases/Pollution/Stress

How Our Forefathers Managed Wellness:

In the Waters are all medicines and Agni gives health to all. May the waters prepare the medicine that is a protection for my body, that I may long see the Sun.
– Rig Veda I. 24. 20-21

The ancient medical science of India, Ayurveda incorporates therapy through water vapour in the process of Svedana. Most civilizations have used THERMAL-HYDROTHERAPY in some form or the other throughout history to drive natural wellbeing, be it the Roman Thermae, Finnish Sauna, Turkish Hamam, Ayurvedic Svedana or American Indian Sweat Lodge.

Let’s not forget, our bodies are made up of 70% water and that’s where the answers lie.
Ancient Egyptians built ‘bathhouses’ – almost every disease in Egypt was treated with the help of water. Archaeologists have discovered evidence of ‘steam rooms’, cabins filled with steam and aromatic herbs to help treat various ailments. In one of the most ancient Egyptian literature, called Initial book of transformation of the old and the young the author ranked steam baths as a top means of rejuvenation and improvement of health improvement.

Factors Impacting Longevity of Life
Infections of the respiratory tract are perhaps the most common human ailment. Air pollution from our bustling metropolitans often contribute and aggravate factors of many respiratory diseases including common cold, flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, asthma, and allergies.

We live in a complex world, with an increased complexity of life. Sedentary lifestyle, bad eating habits, adverse working conditions, economic and other external factors etc. specifically lead to physical and mental stress. Stress leads way to diseases like high blood pressure, insomnia and much more.

In order to control and prevent the complications arising from these diseases, it is important solve for the root cause of these problems and not go in blindly for a symptomatic level treatment. Our body has tremendous potential to heal itself, if we let it get closer to its natural balances.

Steam therapy or inhalation is one of the most widely recommended natural treatments to soothe and open the nasal passages and get relief from the symptoms of a cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma or sinus infection. The warm, moist air works by loosening the mucus in the nasal passages, throat, and lungs. This may relieve symptoms of inflamed, throat irritation and swollen blood vessels in nasal passages.

It’s effective and feasible
Steam therapy also helps with:
• Managing stress
• Post workout rehabilitation

The Trick To Slow Down Ageing & Increase Longevity Of Life


“You are only as old as you think you are.”
Well, it is definitely true, isn’t it? However, on the flip side, we strive towards hanging onto the last straws of youth, our looks, and skin using various cosmetics, surgeries, and treatments.
We resort to permanent and non-permanent procedures such as blood transfusions from the young, stem cell therapies, Botox, and dermal fillers. In our pursuit of fuller lips, chiseled jawlines, and flawless complexions we have blurred the lines between surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Unlock Body’s True Potential
We are a generation that’s obsessed with looking good, partying hard and living a long life.
Somewhere we all know but have conveniently ignored the true potential of the body in maintaining and upkeeping itself. It’s really a lifestyle switch, a conscious decision to getting closer to nature. What we stand to discover is that the human body has a tremendous capacity to rejuvenate and renew itself; if we adopt the right approach, that is.
Instead of playing with nature’s processes and cell structures to reverse-aging and increasing longevity why don’t we go back to the basics?
And what screams nature more than – water and heat, right? Hydro – water; Thermal – heat, put them together and you get the purest substance is known to mankind – steam droplets! Daily steaming is a time tested, yet the immensely fashionable approach to increase longevity. Even Benjamin Franklin started his days with a steam session…google it!
Exfoliate Your Entire Body
Steam therapy is a cost-savvy, easy technique to improve skin quality. A facial steamer or an old fashioned steam bowl comes with its own limitations. Steam room sessions enable an entire body to cleanse. Research has shown that heating the top layer of skin acts as an enzymatic exfoliator.
Steaming helps counteracts the signs of aging. It boosts hydration of the skin leaving you with magnified natural radiance, while also softening the skin’s outer layer. It greatly benefits those with sensitive skin, easily irritated by creams and serums.
Steaming helps clean those clogged pores. It causes you to sweat out trapped toxins and get rid of the layers of dead skin cells thereby cleaning us holistically, without chemicals! It softens blackhead plugs, gently releasing them from follicular openings.

Collagen Calling
Collagen is the most common and abundant form of protein in the body found in many tissues of the muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, and the digestive system. As you age the skin becomes thin and loose due to loss of collage and elastin. Steaming helps in boosting the production of collagen and elastin giving it a more voluminous, supple and resistant appearance.
It cannot replace Retinoid or other steroidal treatments, but you can definitely avoid or at least push them to a later date if you steam regularly.
Beat The Stress
It’s not the stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it- the damage stress puts on the body does nothing to reverse the clock. The emotional stress we go through speeds up our cellular aging process. We need to sweat out the stress literally. Manage the stresses from our day-to-day routine by saying bye-bye to Cortisol and similar stress-inducing hormones.
Feel Weightless And Sleep Easy

As we step into the steam room our muscles and joints experience deep relaxation. Once we relax, we learn to manage our circadian rhythm -a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. A disrupted circadian rhythm means sleep disorders and hormones went haywire leading to obesity, diabetes, bipolar disorder.

Step Up Your Daily Shower Game

SteamPro makes it possible to have steam installed in your current shower space without any breakage or construction, in under 60 mins.
You can up the experience by listening to relaxing music while having steam. Listening to the strains of Sufi, classical and instrumental music like Beethoven, Mozart, and the more contemporary Yanni, Kenny G helps soothe frayed nerves.
Adding essential oils like eucalyptus helps rejuvenate your senses and reduce oxidative stress.

Fight Air Pollution like you Fight Covid-19

air pollution

“Fight bad air like you fight covid”
Times of India, dated 29/7/20, carried the above titled news on its front page. The air quality in India is said to be second worst in the world. This is cutting short the life expectancy of Indians by 5.2 years.
“Though the threat of novel coronavirus deserves every bit of attention it is receiving, embracing the seriousness of air pollution with a similar vigour will allow billions of people around the world to lead longer and healthier lives.” said Michael Greenstone from Chicago.
The air quality is measured by AQI – Air Quality Index. The greater the level of air pollution in a city, greater are the health concerns for its inhabitants. The AQI tracks ozone (smog) and particle pollution (tiny particles from ash, factories, soil, dust, pollen etc.).
AQI values above 100 are considered unhealthy for the sensitive group of people and as the levels increase, it becomes dangerously unhealthy for most people.

Health Problems due a High AQI level: aggravate respiratory diseases, allergies, cardiovascular damage, fatigue, headaches and anxiety. It can damage the reproductive organs, harm the liver, spleen and blood. There may be irritation in the eyes, nose and throat. The nervous system may also be compromised.
Keeping track of the current air quality information may help in protecting the vulnerable group like children, the teens, people with asthma or other lung complications, the elderly, those with a heart condition or those who have had a stroke.
A prevention plan can be put in place if the air quality is really bad in your city.
• Avoid morning walks.
• Restrict outdoor activities for children
• Keep your kitchen and bathrooms well ventilated.
• Ventilate your home and purify your car air.
• Stay away from high traffic areas.
For those who exercise outside (jogging etc.), if the AQI is particularly high on some day, avoid prolonged vigorous activity outdoors. The health effects of pollution are worsened over extended periods of exposure, and by the deep, rapid breathing that accompanies exercise.
Is there a solution out there? How do I continue to live in a metro city in India and counter bad air?
We all would agree that in order to survive in an urban city, restricting outdoor activities is not a good long term plan. The children need to step out to go to school and to play. The elders have to go out to for chores, works and jobs etc. A system needs to be adopted, maybe a lifestyle change that strengthens our internal organs and body to ward off these pollutants effectively. Something that builds our immunity strong enough to combat the ill effects of pollution on a daily basis.
One very potent solution is Steam – the moist warm air that is used world over to rehabilitate lungs and breathing function.
In order to beat the air pollution, daily steam bath can be taken with a few drops of eucalyptus oil. A 2018 study published in the Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine showed that steam therapy was an effective solution to detox the lungs.
Steam also helps in removing the mucus from the upper airways, including the nose and throat , during a respiratory infection.

During the Corona pandemic, when our immunity should not be compromised, “Steam does help in activating the immune system” according to Dr Vichar Nigam, consultant, Internal Medicine, Columbia Asia, Pune.

We can help! Get in touch today to understand how daily steam can help improve immunity and increase overall body productivity, in addition to a host of other advantages.

Can steam help you in sleeping better?

It’s known that an average human adult require seven to eight hours of sleep every night.
The prescription of sleeping pills is constantly on the rise – which is rather drastic, if you ask us. Insomnia like other conditions is our body’s way of telling us that something’s not quite right. Instead of finding the root cause of the issue, we push our body away from its natural state even more by prescription pills. We strongly recommended that the natural soothing moist heat of the steam be given a chance.
What is Insomnia?
Insomnia is a common sleep disorder which can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to fall back to sleep again. Insomnia can snap your energy levels, mood, health, work performance and overall quality of life.
Insomnia may be a primary problem, or it may be associated with other medical conditions or even medication!
Chronic insomnia is when you cannot sleep for a month or more, is usually a result of stress, life events or habits that disrupt sleep. Treating the underlying cause can resolve the insomnia, although sometimes this may take years.
Diagnosing Insomnia:
• Physical examination: to look for signs of medical problems related to insomnia or a blood test even to check for example the thyroid or some other condition associated with poor sleep.
• Sleep habits review: to check the sleep-wake pattern and the level of daytime sleepiness. One may be asked to keep a sleep diary for a couple of weeks.
• Sleep study: If the cause of insomnia isn’t clear, tests are done to monitor and record a variety of body activities in sleep, including brain waves, breathing, heartbeat, eye movements and body movements.
No matter what the age, small changes in the routine during the day can lead to better sleep. Some basic tips and home remedies include:
1. Stick to a sleep schedule of when you sleep and when you wake up. Stick to it even on weekends.
2. Stay active: Regular activity or exercise a few hours before bed time helps promote a good night’s sleep.
3. Avoid or limit day time naps: These can make it harder to fall asleep at night.
4. Avoid or limit caffeine and alcohol and don’t use nicotine. All of these can make it harder to sleep.
5. Avoid large meals before bed time.
6. Make your bedroom comfortable for sleep. Keep it dark and quiet and at a comfortable temperature.
Although, at first we might think that a steam bath or a shower or just getting wet in our showers would be counterproductive toward sleeping, studies have shown otherwise. The controlled, distraction-free environment of a steam room can help facilitate calm and relaxation deep within the layers of your body that aides sleep.

The effects of warm steam inhalation on sleep have been studied closely. This study aimed to examine the effects of warm steam inhalation before bedtime on subsequent sleep quality. According to the study findings, warm steam inhalation before bedtime induced psychological relaxation and increased deep sleep in the early sleep episode, leading to an improved subjective sleep quality in participants with mild sleep difficulties and anxiety. These results suggest that safe and easy inhalation of warm steam may have favorable effects on relaxation and sleep. .
By alleviating physical aches and pains such as headaches, muscle soreness or joint pain, a steam session takes away many things that might disturb a nights rest.

10 benefits of the steam shower to get younger-looking skin

Top 10 anti-aging benefits of the steam shower

The skincare industry has seen a rush over the last decade. With more beauty brands making a market presence, our dependence on cosmetics too has increased.

We all wish to look young and hence, falling prey to the marketing gimmicks, try every face wash, cream, serum that boasts of anti-aging benefits. However, we fail to see the natural remedy that isn’t just cost-effective but comes with absolutely zero side effects—heat therapy.

We have compiled a list of top 10 anti-aging benefits of heat therapy induced by regular steam shower at home to achieve graceful ageing:

1. Deep cleansing: A steam shower opens up the pores and helps loosen any buildup of dirt for a deeper cleanse and softens blackheads, making them easier to remove.

2. Takes years off from skin: The steam increases perspiration and dilates the blood vessels that increases circulation. Hence, it gives you anti-aging benefits taking a few years off your appearance.

3. Removes heavy metals: The heat absorbed by the skin during a steam shower helps reduce heavy metals from the bloodstream like mercury that is corrosive to the skin.

4. Relaxes skin: One of the best anti-aging benefits of the steam shower is that it relaxes the skin. It gives time to the skin to breathe flushing out impurities.

5. Hydrates skin: Steam hydrates the skin by increasing the water content and helping to increase oil production thereby repairing the skin.

6. Reduces wrinkles and eyebags: We use anti-aging or anti-wrinkle creams to reduce wrinkles and under-eye bags from our face. However, these creams give short-term benefits or in some cases, the effects aren’t visible too. The steam shower gives long term results in reducing wrinkles and under-eye bags from the skin.

7. Boosts collagen and elastin: The increased blood circulation during a steam shower boosts collagen and elastin production in the skin. This results in firmer and younger-looking skin.

8. Releases trapped sebum: Sebum is a naturally occurring oil produced by sebaceous glands to lubricate the skin and hair. When sebum gets trapped beneath the skin’s surface, it creates a breeding ground for bacteria and causes acne and blackheads.

9. A steam shower releases trapped sebum that helps in natural moisturization of skin giving an anti-aging effect.

10. Reduce acne: A steam shower releases dead skin cells, bacteria, and other impurities that clog the pores and contribute to acne.

11. Radiant skin: The steam shower helps remove dead skin cells that get accumulated and give your skin a dull look. Once this layer is taken off, the skin looks more radiant.

How Induced Hyperthermia is an ‘Immunity booster’ for health


Here’s how induced hyperthermia through the steam shower is an immunity booster and combats diseases.

A steam shower is nothing short of bliss. Adding steam to your everyday shower regime not only rejuvenates the body and relieves the pain but also helps in revitalizing the mind. It’s a great way to start the day! How is all this possible? It is achieved by inducing hyperthermia conditions in the body.

Induced hyperthermia is a condition in which core body temperature is elevated by some degrees from the normal, for therapeutic purposes. This creates a fever-like condition in the body.
Here are some benefits of
inducing such an artificial fever in the body: :

A steam shower helps in removing toxins from the body, improving the skin, relaxing the muscles, the increased body temperature not just destroys bacteria and viruses but also helps in improving the self-immune mechanism by keeping them away.

In the feverish condition, the body prepares its natural immune response and triggers the increase of white blood cell count and antibodies, that are our natural shields against viruses and bacteria. As the virus can stay only within a narrow temperature range and increase in the body temperature either make the virus inactive to grow or kills it. Inducing similar conditions in a steam room is called induced hyperthermia, but with more benefits.

As a part of the body’s self-immune mechanism during fever , internal organs start working faster, thereby, increasing the blood flow and oxygen supply to the entire body to fight the virus. This increases the body’s metabolic rate and cleans up arteries and veins and helps in supply better oxygen, nutrient and enzyme supply to the affected areas, which in this case, is the entire body. It is also observed in some researches that heat generated during hyperthermia also helps in disintegrating certain tumours. Tumours have poor blood flow and are have poor heat dissipation. The same concept is used during radiotherapy to reduce tumour size and prevent them to grow further. A similar effect is achieved during steam sessions, without harming the good cells, which often happens during radiotherapy. Some researches have also found it beneficial in cancer treatment in addition to the chemotherapy and have observed significant results.

With regular steam sessions and induced hyperthermia conditions, our body reduces the chances of virus growth, thus becomes healthier with improved immunity, naturally.

Undergoing the induced hyperthermia condition in a steam room has more advantages over the Dry Sauna. Combined with the power of steam, it detoxifies the body, controls stress levels and improves immunity to the daily wearing of the muscles, while discarding the toxins through sweat.

It also helps in easing out deep tissue problems and is also found helpful in curing Arthritis rehabilitation along with other muscle injuries.

Spending time in the steam room also helps in reducing muscle contraction, which happens due to heavy work or age factor. This, in turn, relieves muscle tension and pain and better movement. By now you must have understood why the body feels better after steam shower post an intense workout or sports. It becomes more relaxed and immune to frequent muscle spasm. So, planning to take a steam bath now?

Well, definitely!

Can Steam help with back pain?

The human body is often referred to as a “miracle of engineering’. It is made up of billions of cells, tissues, organs and systems. An adult human has close to 206 bones in his body.
The part that keeps the human body upright is the spinal cord. It is a long, fragile tube like structure that begins at the end of the brain stem and ends at the bottom of the spine. It is composed of a complex structure of muscles, tendons, and bones. Cartilage like pads called discs keep the segments of the spine cushioned. All of these work together to support the body and enable it to move around.
One of the leading causes of disability worldwide is back pain. It is the most common reasons for people to miss work or to visit a doctor. The cause of back pain may be compression of nerve roots, damage to the intervertebral discs, a torn or pulled muscle or improper movement of the spinal joints. These damages may not necessarily be due to some underlying disease. Prolonged sitting, lifting too much weight improperly, overuse of a muscle during work out, sleeping in a wrong or uncomfortable position, making an abrupt awkward movement, or even wearing a poorly fitting backpack may lead to pain in the back.
The pain often goes away without treatment, but if it does not get better with rest, or if it spreads down one or both the legs or extends below the knee or causes numbness, or tingling or has not subsided within a week of home treatment, you need to visit a doctor.
There are a number of treatments for backache, however most of them are actually only life style changes e.g.
• Retraining /correcting your posture
• Stretching and flexibility exercises
• Core strengthening exercises
• Mindfulness and meditation
• Diet changes/ loosing weight
Ayurveda is another remarkable system of healing. It is an alternative form of medicine of India which offers effective back pain management therapies. After analysis of your body type, ayurveda recommends treatment to manage the pain. Treatment of body “Doshas” or faults ensures the problem is removed from the root. The famous ayurveda massages with special herbal oils work wonders. The emphasis here is mostly on keeping the body warm from the outside and eating foods that keep it warm from inside. Svedana or Swedana means to prespire. It is an Ayurveda treatment and is done by using Steam Therapy. It is an important pre procedure for the very popular Panchkarma or the five treatments to detox in Ayurveda.
We have all experienced that heat can relieve our pains and aches. What better way than to enter a steam room and let its warmth soothe your pains away. According to, moist heat in the steam room, penetrates and relaxes stiff joints, sour muscles and painful backs. Steam rooms are extensively used by athletes and sports persons to rehabilitate themselves or simply to relax after a tiring game or workout.
