Ready to try something new this Monday? We promise you'll feel a lot better and be more productive all day long with #MondayMambo so you get moving and grooving with Mr.Steam.
Simply get on your feet and move! All it takes is 5 minutes for some fun and fitness during your busy work day. A little movement throughout your day is just as much a part of a healthy lifestyle as is a daily steam shower.
According to Selena Yeager of Women's Health Magazine,
"Dancing can boost your brain power, improve your outlook, grow your social circle, and protect your most important organs... even if you have no rhythm".
Bottom line, dance and movement make you happy especially on a Monday! So, why not try #MondayMambo?
Steam Bathing: A Journey through the Ages continues with part 3: the Sweat Lodges and the Temazcals of the Native Americans.
If you are new to this series, be sure to check out Steam Bathing: A Journey Through the Ages, which introduces the journey, and Steam Bathing History With the Ancient Greeks and Romans.
While the mighty Roman empire was rising in one corner of the globe, the Mayans were creating a comparable society in another. The two empires shared many common interests including the arts, sciences and astronomy. Both also shared a culture of sweat bathing.
Does the thought of Thanksgiving - and the rest of the impending holiday season - generate feelings of stress? You know, butterflies-in-the-stomach, dread, perhaps even panic combined with a cold sweat over having the "perfect family holiday"? Which then deteriorates into irritability, a depleted immune system and a sure case of cold or flu? Lucky for you, Mr.Steam has 5 tips for you so you enjoy a stress-free Thanksgiving!
Mr.Steam believes intensely in re-invigorating a tired body and soothing a worried mind. That's what steamtherapy is about. Our 5 tips are sure to help you decompress and relax, right smack dab in the middle of the holidays, both mentally and physically. The result: you'll feel ready to handle the holidays with grace and enjoy them fully yourself.
In BlogTour London: Bath Design Inspiration, Discoveries, Steam Therapy, we shared with you sights, sounds and design highlights from BlogTour London which coincided with the London Design Festival. There's more!
Immediately afterward, BlogTour Los Angeles (aka BlogTour LA) gathered another group of talented design bloggers from the U.S., the U.K. and Spain together to investigate design in LA. It started with a day at La Cienega Design District, inspiring steam shower and bathroom showrooms, the WestEdge Design Fair and ended with a day of steamtherapy immersion with Mr Steam - since LA is Mr.Steam's West Coast headquarters!
Have you ever considered how aromatherapy might spice your life and uplift your senses? Decor Girl Lisa M. Smith has. She describes it in Does Your Sex Life Need An Upgrade? Inhale With Mr. Steam.
Remember back to Steam + Health + KBTribeChat Make for Memorable Dwell on Design 2013? That's when Martha Orellana - aka Mrs. Steam - discussed not just home steam showers, but also aromatherapy, chakras and chakra oils... Lisa was listening and became inspired.
Decorator's Plumbing knows a thing or two about "bigger, bolder, flashier," the Miami mantra. After 20 years in the heart of Miami's thriving designer district, they have plenty of experience meeting the steam needs of designers who are now routinely supersizing baths into entire wet rooms where two steam showers are de rigueur.
If you're a frequent visitor to the SteamTherapy Blog, you know that Mr.Steam proudly supports Modenus' BlogTour and the teams of talented design bloggers who - during each BlogTour - relentlessly and enthusiastically document design inspiration, trends and discoveries.
BlogTour London 2013 was no different, with participating bloggers sharing a wealth of bath design ideas gleaned from exploring London and experiencing the London Design Festival and Design Junction.
Steam bathing has been part of the human experience for centuries as we learned in Steam Bathing: A Journey Through the Ages. In this next chapter in steam bathing history, we explore how the Ancient Greeks and Romans embraced steam and influenced modern day spa treatments!
Did you know that many of the spa treatments you enjoy today are ones the ancient Greeks originated?
In The Book of the Bath, Françoise de Bonneville writes that in 6th century BC Greece, "Bathing was ritualized, becoming an art – of cleansing sands, hot water, hot air in dark vaulted "vapor baths," a cooling plunge, a rubdown with aromatic oils.” Our mud baths, aromatherapy, and steam are all ancient inventions!
We recently received a comment from a reader complaining about loud steam generator noise. After several exchanges, customer service determined that the specific steam generator creating the noise was not a Mr.Steam generator, but because this concern is a common one, it seemed like a good topic to address on this blog.
Let’s begin by identifying the normal sounds created by a steam shower generator.
Planning your dream bath? How exciting! At the same time, we know there are so many decisions to make, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. Where to begin?
For advice, Mr. Steam reached out to bath (steam) expert Cara Highfield at Kenny & Co., Nashville, TN. who shared ten great points she likes to raise for discussion with her clients.
Cara has plenty of experience helping homeowners personalize their bathrooms at the spectacular Nashville bath and tile boutique that has local architects and designers buzzing.
