TURKISH HAMAM – TURKISH BATH
Have you ever read the story of the 1000 and one night? Turkish bath will plunge you in oriental bliss and serenity. Sauna, steam room, whirlpool, swimming pool, salt room, mud room, peeling, foam and oil massage will create a special atmosphere that will make you come back again and again. You will completely relax and full of power.
The Turkish bath starts with relaxation in a room (known as the warm room) that is heated by a continuous flow of hot, dry air, allowing the bather to perspire freely. Bathers may then move to an even hotter room (known as the hot room) before they wash in cold water. After performing a full body wash and receiving a massage , bathers finally retire to the cooling-room for a period of relaxation.
The difference between the Islamic hammam and the Victorian Turkish bath is the air. The hot air in the Victorian Turkish bath is dry; in the Islamic hammam the air is often steamy. The bather in a Victorian Turkish bath will often take a plunge in a cold pool after the hot rooms; the Islamic hammam usually does not have a pool unless the water is flowing from a spring. In the Islamic hammams the bathers splash themselves with cold water.
