benefits of steamThere are over 40 benefits associated with steam-bathing. A steambath is a steam-filled room for the purpose of relaxation and cleansing. A device called a steam generator boils water into steam and releases it into the air. It has a long history, going back to Greek and Roman times. There are some obvious benefits of opening pores, loosening up muscles and helping you relax. But many more benefits abound for those who steambathe. We’ve gathered 40 more from Mr. Steam.
