The word “hammam” literally translates to “bathroom” or “bathhouse,” which were introduced by conquering Romans centuries ago. Once the Romans departed, the Turks made these bathhouses their own, focused on cleansing both the body and soul for religious rituals. WORLD SPA’s Turkish Hammam is a modern take on the original, featuring beautiful Carrara Blanco marble and traditional Turkish tiles. At the center is the “belly stone,” an area traditionally reserved for scrubs and treatments, but ours features a large, magical sphere that releases steam, sound, aroma and colored light therapy (or chromatherapy). Bask in authentic Turkish music while enjoying the healing properties and energy-rebalancing effects, of light therapy.
While the original purpose of Turkish hammams was for cleansing, socializing and relaxation are integral to a full hammam experience. The hot air temperature and warmth of all the surfaces help relieve muscle pain and promote mental relaxation, while the high humidity of WORLD SPA’s Turkish Hammam should produce intense sweating, encouraging detoxification.
How to use
Though not as hot as our saunas or banyas, the Turkish Hammam offers similar benefits but with less intense heat and should also be followed first by a shower and then by an even more cooling treatment, like a cold plunge or a visit to the snow room.
