The Hammam is a sacred space for those who have experienced the way it transports you into its own world of peace and serenity where time stands still and the body is king. It is a place no one wants to leave and which offers a much-needed refuge from everyday stress. The calming effects of a Hammam treatment go deeper than the skin, and on top of the detoxifying benefits to the body and cleansing of the soul, it makes you unwind and find that place where you can just stop and be.
A Hammam is a sanctuary of wellbeing where you lie down in a heated antibacterial marble room, where you are encouraged to breathe deeply and forget the bustling world outside. When you enter a Hammam, you leave your stress at the door and let the relaxing atmosphere, the hypnotising music and the soft lighting do their job. You will immediately feel your senses revive and your body relax. The professionals will make your treatment an unforgettable one and an experience you will want to relive again and again.
If you book the Hammam treatment, rather than do it yourself, the therapist takes you through the ritual of exfoliating the dead skin, and then massages you from head to toe with spa foam that leaves your skin as soft as a baby’s and your joints and muscles relaxed and loose. The aloe vera face mask goes deeper into the skin to clear and moisturise it and the hair shampooing with argan oil products gives a silky feel to even the driest of hair.
You are then showered with bowls of warm water, reminescent of cleansing rituals of women in ancient civilisations, including teh Greek and Romans.
During a Hammam treatment the body goes through a transformation: hair follicles move upwards in a tingling sensation; with closed eyes, the head seems to float away and the face muscles relax fully. However, the total benefits of a Hammam treatment are hard to list and to describe fully, so the only way to discover them is by visiting the World Luxury Carisma Spa and experiencing it first hand.
At Carisma Spa we promise to take you on a journey into a world where you and your body are the only thing that matters. Call us at one of our spas for an appointment or make the Hammam your second home if you have a membership with us.
