Traditionally, the benefits of steaming include increased energy, Most people cannot withstand breathing the hot air for the appropriate amount of time necessary to allow to the body to achieve the correct heat increase. That is what makes our system so much more effective BECAUSE - Your head is NOT being heated ONLY your body is covered and therefore subject to the increase temperature.
The heat from a Steamy Wonder™ treatment raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. During a fever, the production of white blood cells is increased, as is the rate of their release into the blood stream. White blood cells are the primary agents of the immune system. As the generation of antibodies speeds up, so does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein. In this manner, your body's immune system is strengthened as it works to combat the fever.
At the same time, sweating helps eliminate toxins and waste products from the body. After detoxification, your immune system has less "housecleaning" to do and can focus on protecting your body from more serious health threats. produced by sweating, overall health and resistance to diseases is increased.
Mayo Clinic researcher, Dr. Wakim, cites findings that the number of white blood cells increased by an average of 58% during an artificially induced fever.
The result is that many common skin conditions improve with periodic or regular Steamy Wonder™ treatments:
Acne: Perspiration emulsifies the fat of the sebaceous glands, clearing them of sebum and bacteria which is excellent for acne.
Anti-Aging: Exfoliation treatments with the Steamy Wonder™ open the pores, allowing the superficial and deep layers of the skin to be receptive to the nutrients in natural skin care products. The deep penetration of vitamins, minerals, and moisturizers help restore and maintain skin elasticity and tone. The steam creates a seal on the skin's surface, enclosing the nutrients within the layers of the skin where they may be absorbed and processed.
Dry Skin and Wrinkles: Increased blood supply rushes fluids to skin's surface enhancing the development of collagen and filling in the spaces around cells, plumping up wrinkles. Stimulating the skin on a regular basis helps combat the collagen breakdown that generally results in aging and sagging skin. The resulting effect is deeply moisturized, hydrant skin.
Tanning: With the thorough exfoliation and moisturizing provided in the humid Steamy Wonder™ treatment the skin is prepared for a deeper and more uniform application of sunless tanning products resulting in a vibrant and longer lasting tan.
Sun Damage: People who have been over exposed to the sun will benefit from the rehydrating effects of a Steamy Wonder™
