Wellness and Beauty from the Past: Turkish Bath & Hammam
Hammam (Arabic: hammam) is a place used for bathing with hot and cold water, and heated by a special arrangement.
The history of the bath dates back to the ancient Romans. Excavations in the city of Pompeii under the ashes after the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius revealed the baths used by the Romans. It is understood that these baths are not only for cleaning but also for pleasure and entertainment. Since there was a class difference in the Romans, the entrance doors of the slaves and nobles and the places where they were washed were separated in the baths. The Roman baths also had steam baths, cold and hot water pools.
The word, "hamam", stemming from the Arabic hamma (means "warming up"), indicates sauna bath and is based on the heating of cool water. Bathrooms were used as health and wellness centres among the ancient Greeks as well as have been a vital part of every day life in Istanbul given that Roman as well as Byzantine times.
The Turkish bathroom as a social establishment played an essential function both in the socialization and segregation of Ottoman males and females (in a manner equivalent to the harem). The Public baths were present in the cities, towns and in some villages, and were open to every person.
Treat your body like the holy place it is with a 1.5-hour Turkish bath experience at a hammam during your holiday in Turkey. This refreshing hammam experience begins with a comforting sauna on heated stones, then follows with a healthy and balanced scrub as well as peeling, then a purifying body and hair wash, and finishes with a calming oil massage therapy. A conventional way to rejuvenate your body, the hammam will certainly recover your skin as well as promote healthy and balanced blood flow.
