steam showers

let steam transform your home and life

If you’re considering installing a steam shower in your home, you want to know that you’re working with the experts. We humbly submit that nobody knows steam better than MrSteam. Our founder invented the first electric steam iron back in 1917, and since then it’s been a century of innovation, invention, and a relentless commitment to excellence. 


steam is good for you

Elevate Your Wellbeing. Steam bathing feels like a decadent indulgence, but it’s really a virtuous necessity. After a healthy diet and regular exercise, it’s just about the best thing you can do for your body on a daily basis. Here are just some of the ways steam makes life better.


benefits for mental acuity and cognitive function 

One study found that intermittent hyperthermia is associated with a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s in middle-aged men. Research suggests that heat treatments may raise the production of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), which stimulates neurogenesis, empowering your brain to rebuild neuronal attachments and create new brain cells. 


And let’s not forget: As you sweat it out in the steam room, your perspiration is flushing away toxins that pose risks to brain function, including lead and mercury. One extensive meta-study found that sweat effectively expels heavy metals including cadmium, lead, mercury, and arsenic. Removing these dangerous contaminants may help preserve cognitive health and perhaps even improve it.

Benefits of steam for allergies and lung health

The American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology (ACAAI) reports that 40 to 60 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies, usually in the form of allergic rhinitis (hay fever), which is triggered by airborne pollen and mold spores. With allergy season worsening every year, steam therapy has an important palliative role to play. The Journal of Integrative Medicine published research finding that steam showers “significantly reduced the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.” Steam flushes away allergens that lead to rhinorrhea, sneezing, and itching, easing nasal congestion and other allergy symptoms. 

Benefits of steam for stress

Anxiety and depression are causing tremendous harm to Americans, especially among young people. The American Psychiatric Association reports that anxiety has been steadily on the rise in America for several years, and in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Index, millennials list depression as their number one health concern. 

The causes of our poor mental health are manifold—and so are the consequences. Emotional stress affects more than just your state of mind. Stress triggers the release of cortisol, the “fight-or-flight” hormone. Too much cortisol can contribute to weight gain, increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other ailments.

anti aging properties

What the purveyors of that $200 porcelain jar of wrinkle cream may prefer you not realize is that many of the anti-aging benefits of cosmetics may be conferred by a simple visit to a steam room. In fact, steam therapy may be the best anti-aging treatment available that you’re not using. Here’s why. 

Rejuvenated Skin

The abundance of sweat produced by a stint in a steam shower has a cleansing effect on the epidermis, dislodging and flushing away impurities that clog pores and weaken skin tone. Aging reduces skin elasticity, so you’ll want to do as much as you can to remove toxins and other contaminants from your skin. Experts say that you can sweat as much as 30% of toxins from your body in a steam shower.

Improved Sleep

Nearly 50 % of all seniors have some type of sleep disorder preventing those hours in bed from doing their full rejuvenating work. Older adults suffer from insomnia at a higher rate than the young, and this can amplify the effects of aging. Studies have demonstrated that increasing body temperature in older subjects with insomnia helped them to fall asleep quicker and enjoy a deeper sleep.  

Cell Repair

Stress Reduction

Stress, particularly the effects of the hormone cortisol, can also damage skin. The damage that emotional stress does to DNA can speed cellular aging, according to medical authorities. The calming effects of steam are immediate as you slip into the hot mist, but that’s just the beginning. Steam works more deeply, by potentially triggering mood-elevating hormones such as serotonin, aldosterone, and endorphins, reducing anxiety and keeping you feeling younger, inside and out. 

Brain Health

Limber joints, restful nights, and youthful complexions are great, but you’ll only enjoy your good health if all your cognitive pistons are firing, too. Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are on the rise, and the longer we live, the longer our brains need to stay sharp. Once again, using a steam room may help. Applying intermittent heat on a regular basis has been shown to reduce risk of neurological disease in middle-age men.  

The holy grail of anti-aging research is cellular regeneration. What if we could reverse aging, not just slow it down? There is reason to believe that hyperthermic treatments might play a role in regulating gene expression, particularly with gene HSP70. This gene is thought to promote longevity through its anti-inflammatory effects. HSP70 can be activated  by regular exposure to heat, possibly triggering cellular regeneration. Until we discover the fountain of youth, the anti-aging benefits of steam showers are a good place to start.
