Get Wonderfully Soft and Healthy Looking Skin with a Traditional Hammam Treatment
A hammam ritual is a traditional Arabic treatment that cleanses your body from head to toe. It is an ancient cleansing tradition that we adhere to closely in our salon to leave your skin feeling and glowing beautifully.
It is a private treatment delivered by highly experienced, respectful, and skilled beauty technicians who will do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. This includes during preparations for the treatment, during the treatment itself, and also once the treatment is finished.
In addition, we can also customise and complement our hammam treatments using various natural masks to help detoxify, brighten and rejuvenate the skin.
The Hammam Ritual
The hammam cleansing ritual takes place in our luxurious steam chamber. It is a place where you can relax and be completely comfortable, leaving the hustle and bustle of the outside world behind for quiet time that is all about you.
It is a private chamber which you can enjoy on your own or you can share with friends. The treatment is full body, but you decide how much clothing you wish to wear during the treatment.
The process starts by the trained technician pouring hot water over your body. This opens your pours and prepares your skin for the treatment. A traditional black soap is then applied to the skin on your entire body. This cleanses, exfoliates, and rejuvenates the skin.
The black soap used is made from completely natural ingredients that are based on an olive oil extract. The exfoliating process is completed used a kessa glove which your beauty technician will use to rub the black soap into your skin. This removes old skin leaving you your skin feeling wonderfully fresh and smooth.
Who Are Hammam Treatments Suitable For?
Women of all ages and skin types will benefit from a hammam treatment with one exception – if you are pregnant. During your pregnancy you should avoid treatments using heat which means you should avoid our hammam treatments. For everyone else, however, going through a hammam treatment will make your skin glow like never before.
That said, the process is particularly beneficial as you age. This is because the skin renewal process slows down as we get older. This means our bodies find it harder to shed old skin to make way for newer, fresher skin. The deep exfoliation of a hammam treatment will, therefore, make your skin look younger.

Benefits of Hammam Treatments
Hammam treatments have been rejuvenating and cleansing the skin of women in Arabic countries and beyond for centuries. It is a deep exfoliation treatment that is applied to every part of your body. This removes old skin that is obstructing fresh new skin from coming through. The result is beautifully glowing skin – it may even pleasantly tingle for some hours following the treatment.
