Hammam, health and happiness
The practice of travelling to hot or cold springs in hopes of affecting a cure of some ailment dates back to pre-historic times. Complex bathing rituals were also practiced in ancient Egypt, in pre-historic cities of the Indus Valley, and in Aegean civilizations. Some European colonists brought with them knowledge of the hot water therapy for medicinal purposes.
Europeans gradually obtained many of the hot and cold springs from the various Indian tribes. They then developed the spring to suit European tastes. And now in the modern times the Six Senses Spa launches the Royal Hammam with cocoa beans and shea butter. Hammam is a name for a Turkish bath.
This spa experience combines traditional Hammam techniques with the benefits of cocoa beans and shea butter, leaving the skin glowing and silky smooth. It begins with a relaxing steam session in the Hammam room to release muscle tension and continues with the application of Hammam soap with extracts of cocoa beans, olive oil, shea butter and coconut to cleanse and revitalize. A refreshing cocoa beans and mint scrub is then rubbed over the body to soften and rejuvenate the skin. This journey concludes with the application of a firming mask using cocoa beans, coffee and mint extracts, followed by a moisturizer including shea butter, almond and cocoa beans to deeply nourish the skin.
Wondering about the benefits of the spa, the hammam soap contains high contents of cocoa beans and shea butter which are known as natural skin cleansers, softeners and conditioners. The body scrub and body mask contain cocoa beans and caffeine which stimulate the circulation of the lymphatic system, reducing puffiness and leaving the skin glowing and silky smooth. Moreover, the scent of the cocoa beans releases serotonin which for many people promotes happy feelings and reduces stress. So move on, relax and rejuvenate yourself!
