Steam Bathing: A Journey through the Ages continues with part 5, an exploration of the Hamam and Turkish baths.
If you are new to this series, be sure to check out Steam Bathing: A Journey Through the Ages, which introduces the journey, Steam Bathing History With the Ancient Greeks and Romans, the Sweat Lodges and Temazcals of the Native Americans, and steam bathing in the Onsen and Sento of Japan.
The air is still before the call to prayer. You step into the mysterious half-light of the hamam. The large dome above you, decorated with small windows, gives a sensation of spaciousness.
Where else would Mr.Steam throw a party? At a spa, of course! Mr.Steam, a sponsor of BlogTour Las Vegas, hosted everyone for a day at the Spa at Aria for an unforgettable steam therapy experience!
Martha Orellana, VP of Mr.Steam, greeted the BlogTour bloggers at the Aria Cafe for a scrumptious brunch chock full of delicious entrees, a few Bellinis and good conversation.
Today's bathroom designs are trending more contemporary with spa-like features such as steam showers and heated floors, according to new research from the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).
NKBA recently announced the results of their 2014 Kitchen and Bath Design Trends Survey at their recent Kitchen & Bath Industry Show for design and construction professionals.
Let's go into more detail.
This week, Mr.Steam is answering some user questions about our luxury towel warmer collections. Have a question for us? Enter it in the comments! Here are our questions for the week:
"I love the idea of having a towel warmer in my bathroom, but don’t know very much about how they work. How are towel warmers heated? Do electric towel warmers have an on/off switch? If not, are they on all the time? Is a thermostat control included? What are the benefits to the different types of towel warmer controls?"
Mr.Steam towel warmers come in free-standing and wall-mounted options. You can heat your towel warmer in two ways:
Have you ever wondered what you can do to really feel good?
The folks at Mr.Steam, whose motto is “We feel good... when you feel good," recently came across several articles offering interesting suggestions for relaxation. These ranged from yoga to steam therapy to simply living well.
Here are highlights. We hope they inspire you to relax and feel good with steam and beyond.
Mr.Steam, whose motto is “We feel good...when you feel good,” was thrilled to learn that we had been honored by a GOOD DESIGN™ award for our Steam Shower Swipe Touch Panel Control.
The GOOD Design Award, founded in 1950 by Chicago architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., celebrates outstanding new product design and graphics. Organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, the GOOD Design Award is the world's oldest and most prestigious design awards program.

Have you wondered how to combat dry air and the ills it causes to skin and sinus? Dahl Plumbing, based in Colorado and New Mexico, does! No surprise to Mr.Steam, their solution includes steam showers...
Temperatures have dropped precipitously around the country, and so has the amount of moisture in the air. Unfortunately, colder weather brings dry air along with it. The resulting low humidity environment can irritate both skin and nasal passages.
To alleviate these dry weather and winter ills, people living in year-round dry climates like Colorado have relied for years on the benefits of steam showers.
Hot on pursuing all those New Year's resolutions? Add one more to your list: resolve to get more steamy. You may have no idea all the different ways that steam therapy makes you feel good.
According to Dr. Oz, if allergy and cold medicine does not improve your symptoms, the next option is steam therapy. Add two sprigs of eucalyptus and rosemary to boiling water and, with a towel over your head, lean over and breathe in the steam. He says to do this "two or three times a day for at least 5 minutes to immediately relieve that stuffy feeling."
We're in the thick of the holiday season and chances are... you may need to revitalize a bit before celebrating the New Year. If that's the case, we have 2 SteamTherapy Tips for you to try together, separate or even one after the other and - ideally - with steam as a backdrop!
Cold winter weather, dry indoor spaces and too much going on can contribute to your hair feeling dry.
