Hammam: what it is and what are the benefits

Very often when we get to the end of the day, the only thing we want is a nice hot shower. The feeling of washing away from the body not only dead cells but also daily stress and anxiety. In fact, you should know that the benefits of water have been known since ancient times and the hammam ritual aims precisely at the purification and regeneration of body and mind. Then let me explain what the hammam path consists of.

What is the Hammam

The hammam, also known as the Turkish bath, comes from an ancient tradition belonging to the Arab culture. And what does it consist of? You must know that it is a real purification ritual, so much so that it has become one of the most popular body care treatments in wellness centers. But let’s go in order.

In fact, according to the millenary tradition, the first step is to immerse your body in a steam bath of about 20 minutes . The ablutions of hot water in fact stimulate the elimination of dead cells and toxins, but also promote the circulation of the joints like a hot tub. 

As if we were guided by the succession of different rooms, after the steam bath you can access the second step. A face / body scrub will be performed on your body with the kassa glove (or kese glove). In this way the dead cells are eliminated and the effect will be of a soft, regenerated and very luminous skin . But that’s not all.

In fact, if the hammam is a purification ritual, the body must be cleaned with a particular black soap. In El Spa the traditional savonage is carried out with the precious savon noir Cinq Mondes, a black vegetable soap.

The tour then continues in the relaxation room, with the tasting of tea and herbal teas (sweetened with fresh fruit and dried fruit) for a total abandonment to the feeling of well-being.

These are the main steps but if you want to take advantage of a complete hammam path, you can choose between various treatments that the expert hands of the El Spa wellness center will be ready to satisfy. Why not give yourself a relaxing massage to deeply hydrate the skin with our most precious oils or choose a face treatment and / or gassoul body mask. Or you can opt for other types of routes, such as the El tubs, where, respecting the ancient tradition of the Roman baths, you can switch from the hot tub (calidarium) to the cold tub (frigidarium).

But now, let’s get to the benefits of the Hammam

The sounds of the water, the plays of light created by the environment of the pools, will be able to transport you into a magical atmosphere from the Thousand and One Nights. Your soul will participate in the purification ritual and at the end of the journey your mind will be free from all the worries of the day. Not to mention the benefits of the body.
