A hammam sauna, also known as a Turkish bath, is a traditional Middle Eastern and Mediterranean bathing facility that has been around for centuries. It is a communal space where people come together to cleanse their bodies, relax and socialize.
The hammam experience usually begins in a warm and humid room, also known as the hot room, which is heated by hot water and steam. The temperature in the hot room is usually around 40-50 degrees Celsius (104-122 degrees Fahrenheit) and the humidity level is high, which helps to open up the pores and cleanse the skin.
After spending some time in the hot room, you may move to a cooler room, also known as the warm room, which is usually a bit cooler and less humid. Here, you can take a break from the heat and relax on a heated bench.
Next, you can move on to the cold room, which is usually the coolest room in the hammam. This is where you can cool down and refresh yourself with cold water.
Finally, you may choose to visit the sauna, which is a dry, high-temperature room that can be heated up to 80-100 degrees Celsius (176-212 degrees Fahrenheit). The sauna experience helps to further cleanse the body and relax the muscles.
Throughout your hammam experience, you can enjoy various treatments, such as exfoliating scrubs, massages, and aromatherapy. These treatments can be performed by a trained therapist or can be self-administered.
Overall, the hammam sauna experience is a rejuvenating and relaxing way to cleanse the body, improve circulation, and unwind from the stresses of daily life.
