Steam Baths

Inside a professional spa or in the privacy of your home, a Stenal Steam bath is made to last over time and offer you the comfort and magic of true wellness rituals. Immerse yourself in Mediterranean culture with our steam baths: the hammam, a synthesis of Roman baths; the Rasul, a room with less humidity than the normal Steam bath and where mud treatments are carried out; and finally the Onsen cabin, which recalls the ancient Roman tepidariums.


History: how the Steam bath was born

The Steam bath is an ancient practice of body hygiene and purification that has its roots in the ancient Roman baths.
Later, the Arab countries adopted this practice of hygiene and purification of the body, assimilating it within their own culture and translating it into a religious rite. Today the Steam bath is a consolidated practice in almost all Mediterranean cultures, including ours.
The fascination of body purification and the constant search for both physical and mental well-being has meant that the Turkish bath has become one of the most requested products in the world of wellness.

What is a steam bath?

The Steam bath is a steam room with a high humidity rate. The temperature inside the cabin reaches 40°-45° with 100% humidity making the environment saturated with water vapour. The session in a Steam bath is usually longer than in the sauna, thanks to the lower temperatures. We therefore recommend the Steam bath to all those people who cannot stand the excessively high temperatures of the sauna.

Stenal Steam bath: technique and precision at the service of your well-being

Over the years Stenal has developed materials and manufacturing techniques capable of coping with the high level of humidity that is created inside the cabin and to propose alternative and effective solutions.
The steam bath, unlike the sauna, is a room saturated with steam. Thanks to EPS, the high-density polystyrene with which Stenal builds the walls of its steam baths, we guarantee walls with a high insulating capacity, resistant and easily waterproof.
Furthermore, the vaulted roof facilitates the fall of steam droplets along the walls and favors correct distribution of steam inside the cabin.

What are the benefits of the Steam bath?

The benefits of the Steam bath are innumerable and affect both the psychic and physical spheres.
The high level of humidity and the perceived high temperatures favor the perspiration of the body and the dilation of the pores. In this way all the excess toxins are released, restoring shine to your skin and purifying it from impurities.
It is, therefore, highly recommended for those suffering from skin diseases such as acne, eczema and forms of dermatitis.
The strong heat perceived is also a panacea for those suffering from muscle pain or other joint pathologies. The Steam bath counteracts water retention, improves blood circulation thanks to the vasodilating action of the high temperatures and the vasoconstrictive action of the cold shower.
The warm environment also helps to counteract some respiratory diseases, such as colds and sinusitis.
The Steam bath session is also recommended after physical activity and the gym, as the high humidity rate favors the elimination of lactic acid and relaxation of the muscles, thus allowing the athlete a faster physical recovery.
