Steam Room

Steam therapy is traditionally experienced after an Ayurvedic treatment. The steam room encourages excess toxins to leave the body through the skin promoting a state of balance and general well being throughout. Steam therapy also helps to improve circulation, relieve stress by calming the mind, ease sore muscles and purify the skin.
