    2. The steam head is hot. Do not touch the steam head and avoid the steam near the steam head.
    3. Prolonged use of the steam system can raise excessively the internal human body temperature and impair the body’s ability to regulate its internal temperature (hyperthermia). Limit your use of steam to 10 to 15 minutes until you are certain of your body’s reaction.

The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting. The effects of hyperthermia include:
    1. Failure to perceive heat:
