It is always amazing to me how the world of spa and the world of motherhood crossover on an almost daily basis. As a spa professional, the benefits of steam are numerous and the majority of spas have steam rooms or steam showers for guests to enjoy.
In a spa setting, relaxing in a steam room and taking deep long inhalations boosts the immune system, clears out impurities in the skin’s pores, loosens congestion, eases sinus pressure and more.
At home when infants and young children are feeling sick, congested, coughing or having difficulty breathing, sitting in the bathroom with the hot water from the shower running to produce a steamy room benefit the children.
Why is it then when we grow up and become young adults do we forget this natural remedy when it is there all along whether in our bathrooms or at our favorite spa? Exposing our children to spa in the teenage years keeps these natural remedies top of mind. Spa is a way of life, a necessity, not a luxury.
