Visit to the steam room: regeneration for your whole body
The steam room is a place where you can leave the stress of your everyday life behind you. Your body relaxes and you can replenish your energy reserves. Surrounded by gentle mist, pleasant aromas and healing warmth, you are at one with yourself – benefiting your body and spirit.
The unbeatable combination of physical regeneration, mental relaxation and an invigorating effect on your whole organism makes a visit to the steam room just as valuable today as it was then. A steam room is wellness like in ancient times – literally:
Sweating and cleansing: enjoyment like in ancient Rome
The long tradition of the steam room goes back to the bathing culture of antiquity. In ancient Rome, visiting a bathhouse was a valued ritual on all levels of society: after cleansing in the cold bath, the ancient Romans spent some time in the warm bathroom. There, they were oiled and massaged. After this, they went into the sweating room or “caldarium”, where there was a hot and humid climate. The bathing ritual ended with refreshing themselves in the cold bath.
The Romans exported their bathing habits throughout their empire. Even in Bavaria, some spa resorts date back to Roman times.
Wellness for your health
In all steam rooms, there is a high level of humidity and a temperature of 40 to 50 degrees. The perfect combination of humid warmth instead of dry heat has a relaxing, cleansing and nourishing effect.
Thanks to its healing effect, the wellness classic, the steam room, is currently experiencing a renaissance in the local spas and thermal baths. After the boom of exotic treatments, wellness experts are focusing on tried-and-tested methods. Find out for yourself how a steam room does you good: take your place, breathe in the warm mist and relax.
Radiant skin and well-being thanks to a steam room
Regardless of whether it’s a caldarium, a mist sauna, a Turkish bath or a Russian banya: the steam room is a real tonic for your beauty. The warm steam opens the pores of your skin. Toxins, sebum and dirt are gently removed; irritated skin is soothed.
Help it along with a gentle exfoliation or a massage – for example with a rough glove made from wild silk, as is usual in a traditional Turkish bath. This stimulates your skin and your circulation. The result is smooth skin that is rosy and receptive to care products, which now penetrate particularly deeply.
It is not only your skin that is benefited by sweating in the steam room: the warmth also sustainably relieves muscle tension. Your metabolism also gets going: your immune system is stimulated and it is as if your worries and stress have blown away in the aromatic mist.
After the steam room, get into the cold bath. This will cause your skin’s pores to close again. Drink a large glass of fresh spring water, herbal tea or a well-seasoned vegetable juice. Afterwards, lie down on a lounger to sweat and simply thinking of nothing – for a deep relaxation from head to foot.
Your soul breathes deeply – this is the effect of the various infusions in the steam room:
- Soothing: lavender and balm
- Cleansing: thyme
- Stimulating: rosemary
- Detoxifying: birch
- Strengthening: mint
- Sweat-inducing: lime blossom
- Beguiling: rose
