The human nervous system
Microclimatic steam bath conditions affect the whole body, but especially in the neurohumoral regulation.The nervous system responds immediately and briefly.Changes in the central nervous system are manifested in the involvement of certain brain centers in violation of its functions, mental changes.The increased blood flow in peripheral organs during their stay in the steam leads to its reduction in the brain.This causes mental retardation in some visitors bath.On further stay in the steam room is reduced emotional activity, which is also explained by a decrease in blood flow in the brain.However, these changes can not be regarded as negative, as the decline of mental stress at the same time accompanied by a decrease in muscle tension, and reduced muscle and mental stress is very important for rehabilitation.
