Everyone experiences stress on a daily basis. Even positive experiences--a new marriage, a job promotion, or financial gain-can be a stress-provoking event. "Although stress itself is not a disease, it can aggravate numerous conditions, including allergies, arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, colitis, and ulcers, just to name a few.
If stress contributes to illness, then stress reduction should promote better health and healing. We believe that by combining the benefits of steam, hyperthermia and aromatherapy into one convenient, easy to use unit, we have created a powerful tool for stress reduction, health & well-being.
Fortunately, stress and its effects can be reduced through exercise, relaxation and use of the aromaSpa.
For stress, the aim naturally is to relax and unwind the mind and body and the aromaSpa is most effective.
The warmth of the steam in addition to the relaxing benefits of the essential oils, melts away muscle tension and helps quiet the mind, leaving the body feeling relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated.
The aromaSpa aromatic steam capsule has three main strategies for combating the effects of everyday stress, steam (moist heat), aromatherapy, and hyperthermia (artificial fever).
Steam (Moist Heat)
Physicians, chiropractors, physical therapist and massage therapist have long used
moist heating packs to relieve muscle tension and spasm.
Researchers are beginning to understand why Hippocrates, father of medicine, prescribed
a daily hot steam bath scented with essential oils to promote longevity. Recent studies
have shown the powerful effects of essential oils on both mind and body, relieving stress,
boosting the immune system and causing a sense of well-being.
"Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease"
