What can't a Hammam do?
The Process of a Hammam
The Hammam is a treatment that your body will thank you for. Not only is the experience one to remember, but along with it comes a multitude of benefits.
Let’s start with the process of a Hammam, you’ll begin in a dry, heat-filled room. Here, your body will adjust to the heat, your pores will open, and the sweat will remove the impurities from your body. You will then be lathered in black soap and your body will be buffed with a Kessa mitt. After being rinsed and dried you will be taken to a cooler resting room, where you can rehydrate with a refreshing Moroccan tea.
The Benefits of Hammam
Provides a Physical Detox
The Hammam allows us to go to a place of deep relaxation. The intense steam and heat reduce stress and anxiety. Alongside this, the massage will help you to ease tension and increase energy and alertness. The scents in the essential oils used help to relax the entire nervous system, which stimulates the body, improving mental sluggishness and reducing exhaustion.
