All of our experiences and services here at Healing Waters Spa focus on rejuvenation and nurturing our client’s skin, but there is one experience in particular that focuses on the ancient practise of purification–the Hammam treatment.
This Turkish bath was predicated on the belief in cleanliness and the practise of tranquility. For centuries Hammam has supported the body and soul through its lavish benefits. Although over the years, the public bathing experience has shifted to private sessions, the ritual has remained, preserving the ancient benefits.
The benefits of this treatment seem almost endless; let’s explore some:
- It detoxes the body.
- Exfoliates dead skin, leaving a glowing effect.
- Helps manage acne-prone skin.
- Increases blood flow, stimulating your senses.
- Boosts the immune system.
- Releases pain in the body.
- Offers better sleep.
- Opens the respiratory system.
- Reduces stress, pushing out toxins in the mind and body.
You’re probably wondering how a treatment that exfoliates dead skin can also boost your immune system and cleanse your mind, body, and soul. Let your wonders lead you to Healing Waters, especially if you’re not travelling to Istanbul anytime soon.
Note: this treatment is not recommended for people who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, live with any diseases related to the heart (including hypertension and hypotension), kidney, stroke, diabetes, and epilepsy; lastly, those who are sensitive to heat or have severe or chronic pain or mobility issues.
