Partner With Us

We’ve established Essential Steam, a company to design, construct
and operate steam rooms and bathhouses, tailored for
the Steamology experience.

Steamology traces its history to 2005 when a group of enthusiasts from Russia has started developing protocols for traditional treatment in Russian banya, incorporating various methods from other cultures and applying modern knowledge of physiology and psychology to the process. In 2012, we started exploring and providing workshops on group treatments in different settings and cultures, from Sweden to the USA, to Eastern Europe. In 2016 our first steam room was open in California, and we started teaching the method in 2017.

What Makes Us Unique

01 Perfect steam & microclimate

  • Unlike the standard sauna or hammam, our steamrooms are designed to provide perfect, lasting experience for the guests
  • To achieve this, we develop and deploy special stoves and steam generators for steamrooms, and engineering package for all wet facilities
  • The internal layout of a steamroom is as important: our steamrooms are tailored for individual and collective treatments, in conjunction with treatment protocols we have developed

02 Perfect mastery of design

  • We specialize in indoor/outdoor organic designs, bringing together materials, lighting, and layouts
  • We accumulated knowledge in making facilities as beautiful, as they are easy and safe to maintain

03 Perfect treatment

  • It is the steammaster who turns the facility into magical place, and we provide our clients with knowledgeable, skilled, ethical professionals
  • We provide specific treatment protocols and tailored supplies (herbs, aromas, parafernalia), exactly matching the type of steamrooms and lounges we build


We offer a full range of services from feasibility studies & concept development, thermal equipment & facilities design, hiring & training, to full management operations.
