Steam Showers and Weight Loss
We don’t claim that if you spend time in a Steamist Steam Shower every day, you will drop pounds, have tight abs, look great at the beach, etc. If we could, we’d triple our sales overnight.
It’s true, after a session in the steam bath, chances are you will have sweated out some water weight, but it’s temporary. It’s important to drink enough water after you take a steam to rehydrate. Whatever you lose needs to go back in.
It’s also true, however, that steam is an effective detoxifier. Time spent in a steam shower will open your pores and help your body get rid of toxins that can slow down your metabolism. So, regular steambathing can improve your metabolism and drive your body to burn fat.
But primarily, we believe time spent relaxing, restoring and renewing with Steamist can help you reduce stress. Reduced stress can partner with good diet, regular exercise and a positive attitude as part of a healthy physical and emotional lifestyle.
A daily steam shower really does relax you, help loosen your muscles and stimulate your circulatory system. Getting into and sticking with a regular exercise regimen and weight loss plan isn’t easy. But once you do, you will start to feel the positive difference; and when you sweat from exercising you will burn fat, not water. And getting into your steam shower after your workout will help your body recover on top of relaxing and rejuvenating your mind, body and soul.
