Steam Therapy for Circulation and Inflammation
Steam therapy assists in alleviating inflammation and edema. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help eliminate the edema which helps to end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed the healing process.
How steam works
Heating of one area of the body produces reflex modulated vasodilation in distant-body areas even in the absence of a change in core body temperatures. If, for example, you heat a forearm, then both lower extremities dilate or if the front of the trunk is heated then the hands dilate. Heating of muscles produces an increased blood flow similar to that seen during exercise.
Temperature elevation produces an increase in blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles and veins thus widening the blood vessels.
