Full Body Steam Bath: The steam bath at our center is given in an exclusive steam chamber where the steam is produced with the help of a steam generator. The patient is made to sit in the Steam Chamber where only the head is left exposed. In the beginning, it should be given for 5-7 min, but later as the patient gets used to it, the duration can be increased to 15 min. The head is covered with wet towel and cold water is poured over the head when the rest of the body is in the steam chamber.
As the steam is generated, the body starts heating up and starts sweating. This helps in removing all the toxins of the body with sweat. After the session is over, the person should rub his body thoroughly and then take a normal bath with cold water. Our steam chambers are provided with eucalyptus oil essence which mixes with steam and when inhaled, it benefits the respiratory passage.
