What happens typically during a visit at the hammam?

A Turkish bath or a hammam is a thousand year old traditional bathhouse where guests relax, detox and come out refreshed. Read below about what happens when you come to a Turkish bath.

Sauna

Stage one: After the guest arrives, he or she change into a pair of shorts or swimming suit which will be worn for the duration of the entire visit. Nakedness is frowned upon. They take a quick shower and jump into the sauna for 10-15 minutes.

Hammam

Stage two: The attendant will invite them to the hammam room where the visitors lie down on a warm tiled bed while their bodies get rinsed and scrubbed with an exfoliating silkworm mitt from the mountains of Turkey. Then the  attendant will wash the guests with a rich lather made from olive oil and honey soap using a silkworm pillowcase. This lather helps replenish the freshly exfoliated skin.

Massage

Stage three: After a few minutes of rest in the lounge area, the guest enters the massage room. The Turkish massage is different because it not only focuses on the tired muscles but it also relaxes the nervous system and helps the body detox. The therapists use grapeseed oil which is light and allergy free.

Lounge

Stage four: When the massage is over, the guest returns to the lounge room where they are served Turkish apple tea and delights. After that, they are ready to go for other beauty or barber treatments in our building or return home, feeling refreshed.

Had the best massage I’ve ever had here today. My back and skin both feel amazing. My daughter had her first ever massage and facial and loves it. We will be back thank you xx

 

Went with friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the Turkish bath and the relaxing massage and facial. We opted to pay for wash and blow dry after the Turkish bath experience as going out later. So glad we did as would’ve been too relaxed to lift hairdryer ourselves!

I booked this as a treat for my partner. We had a full Hammam followed by manicure, pedicure, facial and massage. Beautifully clean, fabulously warm welcome, friendly staff who clearly enjoy their job and impart their wicked Scouse warmth & humour and a truly enjoyable experience. Well worth the 260 mile round trip from Warwickshire.
