The Kadırga hamam is a twin hamam with separate areas for men and women.
An Ottoman Bath, also known as Turkish Bath (Turkish: hamam, Arabic: حمّام, translit. ḥammām) is a place of public bathing associated with the culture of the Ottoman Empire and more widely the Islamic world. A variation on it as a method of cleansing and relaxation became popular during the Victorian era, and then spread through the British Empire and Western Europe. The buildings are similar to the thermae (Roman baths). Turkish baths focus on water.
Seated on marble or natural stone, enveloped in an impalpable mist, you inhale the warm steam, decongesting the lungs and your sweat carries away all toxins as you distance yourself from the surrounding space, becoming aware of only the feelings of your own body.
Hamam is not just a cleansing ritual, but a transformative experience which provides an inexplicable feeling of sensation – a complete energisation of mind, body and soul.
Peeling with Mitt
Purifying the skin and body in a Turkish Bath (hamam) is attributed to a deep exfoliation treatment performed using an exfoliating mitt commonly known as a ‘hamam Kese’, meaning hamam Exfoliating Mitt in Turkish. The use of a hamam exfoliating mitt is a culturally-recognized skin renewal treatment and is a first-choice treatment for renewing and purifying the skin. Peeling will make you relax, you will feel lighter.
Turkish Bath continues with foam wash. Your body will be covered with a foam of natural aromatic nice smelling soap and washed by hot water. Foam wash will soften your skin and increase blood circulation. Foam wash is a key to a stress free and serene life.
