Steam has beneficial effects on your body and mind
keeping stress at bay

The first action of the heat is that it dilates the blood vessels which immediately improves the circulation, producing a positive tonic effect. The pores in the skin also dilate making possible deep cleansing of the skin and thorough purification, all of which translates into softer, more elastic skin with a great glow. Alongside cell renewal the steam has a soothing effect on skin problems, reducing acne and dermatitis.

The beneficial properties of a Turkish bath can also help people suffering from localised aches and pains since better blood circulation carries more oxygen to damaged areas and inevitably brings about an immediate reduction in pain and more rapid healing. The heat helps to shift lingering cold symptoms decongesting the nose and chest and making it easier to get rid of excess mucous.

Such toxins as salt, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, heavy metals and other invasive organisms are expelled as the body heats up in the Turkish bath, as if basking in an artificial health-giving fever. Indeed, this stimulation of the sweat glands is the key to the resounding success of the Turkish bath whose health benefits have been recognised ever since the days of Ancient Rome.
