Discover The Ancient Bathing Ritual From Thousands Of Years Ago… Proven To Detoxify Your Entire Body, Beautify Your Skin & Eliminate Stress
Introducing: The Hammam Bathing Ritual
You may ask…what exactly is a ‘Hammam’ treatment?
Essentially, it is a hot Turkish steam bath followed by a beautiful and relaxing massage - which works on strengthening the immune system and clearing the airways.
It involves full body ‘kessa’ exfoliation to remove all the dead skin, soap massage relieving all the tension in the muscles, and a full body clay mask to get all the toxins out.
Following this, a massage oil is applied to give the body, soul and mind its much needed healing journey and a “out of body experience” like our clients describe it.
Overall, the skin is a reflection of our internal, so really the hammam experience is a therapeutic treatment and deeply healing, cleansing and rejuvenating.
Inspired by Ancient Bathing Rituals and the Science of Integrated Wellness, our treatment menu offers something for every ‘body’.
Our exceptional therapists are trained by Dr Zara herself, to ensure that every Amara journey is touched with warm hospitality, generosity of spirit and results you will remember.
The Hammam treatment has numerous health benefits for mind, body and soul…
Hammam rituals relax the mind, release muscular tension, detoxify the body, increase circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, increase metabolism, cleanse and exfoliate the skin, improve texture, tone and hydration of skin, relieve stress, promote mental clarity, increase energy levels and promote general wellbeing.
Upon arriving you will be escorted to the relaxation area where your refreshment and consultation form will await. You are then invited to enter the change room and put on a silk/cotton pestemal, which is a special Hammam bath wrap, before stepping into your private Hammam, where you will take a warm shower and then relax in the steam for 20 to 30 minutes.
After a little time to pause, reflect and breathe, your Hammam therapist, otherwise known as a tellak, will guide you through your chosen experience. This is your time to relax, rejuvenate and restore.
The Kessa glove is a traditional exfoliation glove that cleanses and polishes the skin. The Savon Noir is a black soap made from olive oil, which provides a silky luxurious feel to the massage. The mineral rich Rhassoul Clay, used in Amara’s hammam rituals, is imported from the Moroccan mountains, and our products for hair, face and body are made by Phyts, leaders in certified organic performance products.
After all time has stood still and once complete, you are again invited into the relaxation space to delight in a platter of wellness snacks and refreshments with our compliments.
Note: If you have chosen to add an additional Facial, Massage or Advanced Health & Beauty Therapy you will be escorted into one of our specialised rooms for this next part of your ritual. You are welcome to enjoy your wellness refreshments whenever it feels right for you. We are at your service.
