Steam shower cubicles, developed from the original Roman baths, are today easily available for use inside homes. They are essentially small cabins which do not let the steam escape and thus not only allow the water vapour to concentrate on the user's body but also ensures that it does not damage the paint or wallpaper.
Steam shower cubicles allows for an exhilarating experience if certain features are to be added. Most cubicles have some basic features but the addition of some extras is certainly worthwhile.
A standard overhead or hand held shower must always be incorporated in a steam shower cubicle. One can have a normal shower to rinse off after the steam shower, without moving a muscle.
The entire operation of the cubicle must be simple and functional. For this purpose, a digital control panel is a good way to ensure that the features can be activated merely by pressing a button. This also allows users to work the cubicle from outside.
The steam generator is an integral part of steam showers. It must be built in and it is preferable if it offers plenty of setting options so that you get the best results possible, according to personal choice.
Cubicles can sometimes carry facilities for a hydro-massage along with foot rollers, ensuring the best care for the feet, for further relaxation.
The facility to play music while taking a steam shower increases relaxation and is a feature well worth the price. For this purpose, the cubicles allow connecting to an IPod, MP3 Player or CD Player.
There is nothing more relaxing than the right aroma. Adding a bit of aromatic therapeutic oil to the steam generator often gives the desired effect.
Chromotherapy, or using colourful lights in different ways to influence one's mood, is a technique that has been proven to be conducive for relaxation. This feature is added to many steam shower cubicles.
