Moroccan Hammam Treatments and Rituals

What happens in the MOROCCAN Hammam session?


At the beginning of the Moroccan Hammam ritual, you will take a warm shower and put on a silk/cotton pestemal – a special Hammam bath wrap. Next, you enter the steamy Hammam of your choice, and sit for around 20-30 minutes – this prepares your skin for the exfoliation process.

Finally, the whole body is moisturised and massaged using organic, natural argan oil. Using a special glove called a kessa, your Hammam specialist therapist or tellak will exfoliate the body from head to toe, before cleansing the body using savon noir, a traditional soap made from olive oil. Detoxification is enhanced using mineral-rich rhassoul clay from the Moroccan mountains. This is also applied to the hair and the scalp.
