The Steamy Wonder™ uses a patented heat-circulation design that provides a soothing flow of steam and an even distribution of heat within the steam tent. Within minutes of turning on the steam generator, you will experience the warmth of a steam room without breathing in hot air. In addition, you will enjoy complete comfort and privacy inside the steam canopy.
The Steamy Wonder can enhance or replace body wraps. The warm, moist heat opens the pores allowing effective product penetration; sweating produces the ‘shrinkage’ effect that makes wrapping so popular. In other words, your jeans should be looser after a steam treatment! Mud and seaweed wraps can be given without any wrapping, increasing comfort.
Nobody likes to be wrapped in hot blankets when they could be steamed. Claustrophobic people really prefer the Steamy Wonder, it´s not so restricting. You are unconfined in the Steamy Wonder.
Why Steam Is Better Than Wrapping
Dr. John Welbes, Director the college of Massage Therapy in Omaha, Nebraska recommends steam baths in the treatment of cellulite, finding it superior to body wraps in raising tissue temperature. “Body wraps are very slow,” says Dr. Welbes, “it may take an hour to achieve the same temperature increase that you can get in about 10 minutes in a steam bath.” According to Dr. Welbes, the heat helps loosen the fatty tissue so that it is less solid and can more easily be broken down.
Potential Dangers To Wrapping:
The wraps and electric blankets that are commonly used to heat clients during a body wrap are often made of plastic. Plastic releases toxins when heated, which can then absorbed by the body, creating more toxicity. The blankets also create an electrical field effect which many people believe is not healthy.
