A steam shower uses warm steam or vapour which takes the place of a normal shower cubicle, similar to a sauna. The cubicle doesn’t take time to heat like a sauna or a hot tub and can be ready in a matter of minutes. Steam showers are generally a self-contained enclosure, to prevent water vapour from escaping and damaging the bathroom. If you suffer from a long term condition; please consult your doctor before considering steam showers, as they pose a risk for those living with heart conditions or diabetes. This modern bathing experience has become a luxury staple in gyms, fitness centres and spa facilities.
