Turkish Hamam for Lycian Way Swimmers
Leave life at the door, and take a journey...
Hamam is a purification bath tradition of thousands of years, a traditional ceremony with its cultural and artistic aspect and working like a detox process with steam, kese (the bath glove for peeling) water and soapy massage.
The Turkish bath, also known as hamam or hammam, is one of the ancient world's most widely exported customs. The tradition of the Turkish bath was born generations ago, adopted from Romans and Byzantines and then perfected by the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks and has continued even until today.
A Turkish bath is a hot steam hydro-therapy treatment which has a miraculous effect on both the mental and physical state of everyone able to enjoy its benefits to the full. A Turkish bath is the perfect remedyfor stress and the uncomfortable physiological reactions it can provoke thanks to the soothing and all-round relaxing effect the hot steam has on both body and mind. A Turkish bath is the ideal antidote to all those tensions that build up over the working day, banishing every kind of stress.
Here are just some of the good things your body can benefit from.
The first action of the heat is that it dilates the blood vessels which immediately improves the circulation, producing a positive tonic effect. The pores in the skin also dilate making possible deep cleansing of the skin and thorough purification, all of which translates into softer, more elastic skin with a great glow. Alongside cell renewal the steam has a soothing effect on skin problems, reducing acne and dermatitis.
The beneficial properties of a Turkish bath can also help people suffering from localized aches and pains since better blood circulation carries more oxygen to damaged areas and inevitably brings about an immediate reduction in pain and more rapid healing..
Such toxins as salt, alcohol,..
..nicotine, cholesterol, heavy metals and other invasive organisms are expelled as the body heats up in the Turkish bath, as if basking in an artificial health-giving fever. Indeed, this stimulation of the sweat glands is the key to the resounding success of the Turkish bath whose health benefits have been recognized ever since the days of Ancient Rome.
