The tour of the Hammam is all based on the customer. However, we recommend starting with a warm water shower and then going to the warm room (36°) in order to keep the beginning of the session to the same body temperature.
Once relaxed and your skin is ready to start the tour, we go to the hot room (39°) and the Turkish bath (90°). The action of steam and high temperatures contribute to the elasticity of the skin and its hydration. The pores are dilated and start sweating, which facilitates deep cleaning of the epidermis. The steam also promotes vasodilation and the elimination of toxins
During the bath, a masseur continues the process of relaxation through relaxing or exfoliating massages, removing dead skin cells and cleansing it of impurities and toxins. Finally, in the cold room (17°-18°) one rests to recover the usual temperature. Cold water clears muscles, activates blood flow even more and, once out of the water, the body is relaxed and has a feeling of lightness in the extremities.
It is advisable to hydrate the body throughout the entire route. In the relaxation room we can get green tea with mint. Green tea has antioxidant properties, it hydrates and stimulates, and also, taking 4 to 5 cups a day, has basically no contraindications.
Thank you very much for everything and we hope you enjoy "A bath in history"
