One of the latest trends in home luxury are steam showers, modular units that provide the standard functions of a shower and bath as well as the benefits of a steam sauna. At ModSaunas.com, we can help you find the steam room of your dreams from top-of-the line manufacturers like Ariel and Ameristeam. From small to large, and minimalist to fully featured, we offer a wide range of models to accommodate your needs.
All of our shower enclosures are self-contained units and include all parts necessary to enjoy your shower such as the steam generators, massage jets, hand-held and overhead shower heads, lighting, doors, and of course the steam shower enclosure. Many models also feature built-in seating, chromatherapy lighting, sound systems, shelves and much more. All showers come with complete installation instructions (though professional installation is recommended) and are cheaper and much easier than building a steam bath from scratch. These modular kits are simply built and attached to existing plumbing and electrical connections, with retrofit models requiring few adjustments to existing structures.
Steam Shower Bath Enclosures
The steam shower and tub combos feature an enclosure with an integrated bathtub complete with massage jets and the works. Whirlpool steam shower with tub units are very popular as you can enjoy a relaxing steam bath, then indulge in a nice soak or hot tub to complete the experience without having two separate fixtures taking up space.
Steam Shower Sauna Combo Units
A newer trend on the market is a steam room sauna combo or sauna and shower combo, which has steam cabin on one side and sauna on the other. This certainly takes relaxation to the next level. The complete shower system resides next to either a wooden dry finnish sauna or far infrared sauna and is separated by dual sliding doors. These luxurious multi-tasking fixtures provide spa-quality benefits from the comfort of your home.
Often shoppers ask, "What is the best steam shower to buy?". While there is no one answer to suit everyone, we at ModSaunas.com offer the most respected brands and a very large selection. We carry classic shower designs that blend with most existing fixtures as well as modern glass steamshower designs that complement today's updated bathroom remodels. The best size will depend on the available space in your bathroom and whether you prefer a one or two person shower. We offer a variety of different shapes including retrofit sizes that a made to replace existing bathtubs in 3-wall spaces, small standing units, corner showers, and much more. If you are replacing an existing shower in a remodel, you should also determine the required drain placement to ensure ease of installation (determined by looking head-on at the unit and determining if it is to your left or right). Other options that should be considered are if a bathtub is required, and features (like sound, lighting, controls) are desired.
Benefits of Steam Showers
Our home steam showers have become the "must-have" bathroom fixture for so many reasons, but mainly the long-recognized benefits steam and heat offer to the body and skin. Steam has been a part of healthy living for centuries for its ability to speed up the body's natural detoxification and de-stressing processes, which is needed now more then ever. Steam baths are incredible, and here are a few of our favorite reasons to own one:
Reduce Stress and Relax : Current estimates show up to 75% of all doctor visits are due to stress and stress-related disorders. Immense stress from today’s daily life has been shown time and time again to lead to illness and disease. When under stress, capillaries contract, but the heat and steam from a steam shower room or steam sauna cause them to relax to a normal state again. A shower with steam can ease a great deal of your daily stress simply through increasing circulation. Blood flow to the skin can increase by as much as 60%, which dramatically increases the nutrients brought to tissues, stimulation cellular growth and activity. Steam is also known to cause the body to physically relax and release endorphins, the feel good hormones that naturally alleviate stress, tension, and fatigue.
Rejuvenate : The deep cleaning and detoxification of steam is said by many to reduce breakouts, improve skin tone and appearance and possibly reduce cellulite. Many people experience a deeply refreshed feeling following their steam baths.
Detoxify : Heat speeds up the bodies chemical process and remains one of the most comfortable and simpler solutions to getting all of the toxins out of our bodies. Studies have shown that up to 30% of our bodily wastes are supposed to be expelled naturally through the skin by sweating it out of pores. However, due to lack of physical work and an overly sedentary life, the skin of most people today is rarely subjected to sweating, therefore pretty ineffective in eliminating environmental toxins. Taking sauna or steam shower baths regularly will help to restore and revitalize the cleansing activity of the skin. The heat of steam and saunas quickly and efficiently flushes the body of sweat and excess H2O. While no official studies have been done on the actual detoxification process, many schools of medicine believe quite strongly in detoxification. We encourage you to study different arguments and form your own educated opinions on the matter.
