A lot of homes now are bringing in literal spa-like spaces including built-in saunas known to detox the body, reduce stress, and lower blood pressure.
Steam showers have also become very popular, boosting the immune system and humidifying the space. Oils can be added to them for aromatherapy and extra stress reduction.
