We get up every day and repeat the same agenda. Wake, shower, and have a cup of coffee before jetting off to work. Some have kids to get ready for and drop off at school. Some drink tea instead of coffee. Some throw in a little exercise. Then it's time to head off to work and tackle the responsibilities there. Once you get off work, it's rush home, sometimes by sitting in traffic, only to throw something together for dinner, and then before you know it, it is bedtime. Add in additional responsibilities if you have children.
How many of you take time for yourself, though? One thing you can do is schedule yourself a steam shower session at Halcyon Spa. These sessions are excellent alone or packaged with many of their treatments.
What is a Steam Shower?
A steam shower is exactly as it sounds: a shower filled with steam that requires no running water. While it is similar to a sauna, it differs in that a sauna is a dry heat that is higher in temperature, so a steam shower is more likely to be a calming, refreshing experience. We can all use some additional calm in our lives, right?
Why Should I Have a Steam Shower Session and Halcyon Spa?
Imagine 15 minutes of solitude, where there are no phone calls needing to be made, meetings to attend, or children requiring tending. Along with this, there are many additional mental and physical benefits to having a steam shower session.
Steam showers can foster a sense of well-being by producing endorphins, which are the hormones that reduce feelings of pain. And as Elle Woods said in Legally Blonde, "Endorphins make you happy," and who doesn't want a little relaxation that promotes happiness?
The physical benefits of steam showers include increasing blood flow and adding hydration to your skin, which can help you accomplish that glowing, radiant skin we see on Instagram influencers and youthful celebrities. As you listen to pleasant music and include a little aromatherapy, your pores are opening to release any unneeded fluids in your body. Those fluids are often caused by inflammation, and inflammation is the cause of many other ailments. Having a steam shower can reduce this inflammation.
Some additional physical benefits include:
The releasing of the various toxins we are exposed to daily.
The loosening and draining of fluids caused by allergies, allowing you to breathe easier.
The warming and relaxation of your muscles.
These physical benefits are also great in preparation for other treatments available at Halcyon Spa. For example, facial treatments and waxing sessions benefit from open pores, and massages are deeper and more relaxing because your mussels are already warmed up and loosened.
