Steam Rooms and Hammam
The word Hammam has Arabic roots and it means ‘spreader of warmth’. It is the word given to the sensual bathing retreat that evolved over thousands of years and traces its roots back to the Roman Thermae. These traditions can still be experienced in your own home, a perfect place to de-stress, relax, and rejuvenate. This hot room with high levels of humidity, combined with some aroma infused steam, allows your body to relax, melts away tension in the muscles and opens pores helping to eliminate toxins.
The Hammam’s benefits are numerous and date back to 200 B.C. The main ones however are:
- hyperthermia or overheating which enhances the detoxification process and stimulates the immune system to increase production of antibodies and interferon.
- Steam elevating the body’s temperature speeding up metabolism and blood flow, alleviating congestion, inflammation, reduces spasmodic breathing. It beneficially influences the skin, opening pores, releasing trapped oils and dirt, increasing the blood circulation to the skin, relaxing tense facial muscles and loosening dead, dry skin.
- The thermal contrast resulting from the use of cold water after the hot steam is extremely invigorating and boosts cardiovascular activity. In turn, this increased metabolism and blood flow stimulates muscles, getting them to release stored toxins.
