Swedana is an individually herbalized steam bath, during which the head and the heart are kept cool while the body is heated to remove mental, emotional and physical toxins lodged deeply within the tissues. The cool head and heart provide a sense of calm and openness while the therapeutic steam over the entire body can penetrate and cleanse deeply, without the body becoming overheated and stressed. The Steamy Wonder™ exceeds therapeutic effectiveness promised by the ancient science of Ayurveda with technological advancements that have taken ancient principles of “steam” to a new level of comfort and benefit. It is the only steam system I will use.
Adding Ayurvedic spa therapies to your practice can be a great way to expand your client services and value, while increasing income opportunities. The most affordable and efficient way to add Swedana therapy to your service offerings is with a Steamy Wonder™ portable sauna that works with a standard massage table.
4 Reasons Ayurveda Practitioners Love Steamy Wonder™
1. Meets key Ayurveda requirements
The Steamy Wonder™ was designed by an expert team of Vaidyas (Ayurvedic physicians), specifically for the swedana portion of panchakarma. It is the only steam equipment on the market that allows the patient to lie down and keep the head cool—key ayurvedic requirements for a healthy, safe steam treatment.
2. Patients are safe and comfortable
In the Ayurvedic tradition, lying prone while steaming allows the heart to work most efficiently—keeping the blood flow even throughout the body. Contrast this to sitting in a sauna or steam box where gravity sends the blood down to the feet, making the heart work harder to pump it back up. The ‘dizziness’ that some people report from saunas and steam boxes may be attributed to the lack of blood/oxygen in the brain combined with breathing hot, moist air. According to the Ayurvedic texts, it is also undesirable to heat the blood in the brain. Only the body needs to be heated, not the head, to enjoy the detoxification and purification benefits that result from steam therapy.
In addition, patients enjoy great comfort under the Steamy Wonder™ tent. Because the Steamy Wonder™ works with a regular massage table, your patients lie on a cushioned surface (protected by our special sheets), not the hard, wooden slates used in traditional swedana equipment. The ample room under the canopy allows patients to turn on their sides, stomach or back, as well as raise their knees for greater comfort.
3. Easy to Use & Clean
The Steamy Wonder™ sets up and takes down in just a few minutes-minimizing the amount of time between treatments. Unlike a sauna or steam box, the Steamy Wonder™ does not require a dedicated space-it is fully portable. The canopy can be stored upright in a corner or closet, folded or suspended from the ceiling.
Cleaning the canopy is easy. The canopy can be machine-washed in cool water on a gentle cycle and air-dried. The high-grade coated nylon fabric will not mildew, fray or deteriorate with proper care. There are also a wide variety of gentle, safe spray cleaners on the market (e.g., ones with tea tree oil, hydrogen peroxide, orange essential oil) that can be used in-between treatments to remove any herbalized oils or pastes you might have used in a previous treatment.
4. Costs less than other steam equipment
