Hammam Services You Can Benefit From

Table of Contents

Hammam services are wellness treatments with soothing effects on both your body and soul. They are a great antidote to the tension of daily life. Turkish baths increase blood circulation, relax your muscles, improve your skin’s elasticity, and much more. These self-care beauty rituals are a pure luxury that you truly deserve.

What’s included in an overall hammam session depends on the hammam facility itself. When we talk about hammam rituals and additional spa services, we do not refer to the public hammams that are more casual and easily accessible. We are more concerned with exclusive hammams that offer a more detailed and luxurious experience, just like our Çatma Mescit Hammam.

Book your visit in advance to make sure which beauty treatments you wish to indulge yourself in. Remember to come a bit earlier to feel the atmosphere of the place and enjoy the experience without rushing through it. Keep in mind that the hammam ritual is first and foremost an art of relaxation.

Full-Body Scrub and Exfoliation

Full body scrub and exfoliation are traditional hammam services. A bath attendant uses natural soap, water, and a special kese (mitt glove) to scrub and cleanse the entire body. Full-body scrub brings many health benefits to the skin. First of all, it peels off dead and dry cells and softens your skin. At the same time, it’s a perfect deep clean of your blocked pores and a great cure for acne. What’s important, the treatment stimulates blood circulation too. It smooths your skin and prepares it for the next step of your unique hammam experience.

Once scrubbed, take your place on the warm marble slab called göbek taşı in the hot section of the Turkish bath. Following the scrubbing, a bath attendant will apply a special soap with a foam bag. It’s a traditional accessory used for centuries in the Ottoman-Turkish hammam bathhouse. Imagine your entire body covered in bubble foam. It’s much more than a simple massage! The aroma of the natural olive oil soap has a relaxing effect and will definitely boost your mood. This relaxing and purifying treatment cleanses your whole body and has a soothing effect on your soul. Ready for more?

Full-Body Foam Cover

The all-body foam is usually done on the raised marble platform called “göbektaşı” when you are lying down. It is essentially a foam bath, typically made from olive oil soaps, that makes you feel like you are on cloud nine!

All body foam acts as a relaxing point during your hammam ritual. Some people close their eyes and just get away from all the screens and distractions they have in their daily lives while others socialize and have conversations with friends and family. While you rest, your body is moisturized by these lovely foams, leaving you smelling good.

Foam Massage

After some relaxation time with the foam bath, depending on the service you receive, the bath attendants provide a foam massage before washing the foam off. This massage focuses on the neck and body, helping to improve blood circulation.

The foam cover is then washed off with warm water, completing your overall hammam ritual.

Beauty and Skincare Treatments

Some Turkish baths offer skin treatments like facials, body peelings, and masks. They use natural ingredients such as clay, honey, or essential oils.

In our historic 16th-century Turkish bath, depending on the service you choose when making your hammam reservation, you’ll receive a refreshing peeling treatment before finishing your hammam ritual.

This peeling, typically made with milk and honey, helps rejuvenate the skin and restore its moisture. The nice scent is a favorite among visitors.

Additional Spa and Massage Treatments

Exclusive hammams offer a variety of massage treatments that you can choose to combine with your package. These treatments are conducted by professionally trained massage therapists to ensure optimal results.

At Çatma Mescit Hammam, we provide access to 10 different massage treatments. You also have the option to enjoy a standalone massage without the hammam ritual. However, experiencing the full package in a historic hammam like ours is highly recommended at least once in your lifetime.

Our spa classic massage treatments include:

  • Classic massage
  • Back massage 
  • Anti-stress massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Reflexology
  • Head and shoulder massage

Along with Far East massages:

  • Hot stone massage
  • Traditional Bali massage
  • Thai massage
  • Blend Thai massage

We also have a medically approved massage treatment with special topical creams. 

Spa and massage treatments decrease your stress and anxiety, lighten up your mood, and give you more energy. They increase your feeling of wellness and allow you to fully relax.

Çatma Signature Massage

The Çatma Signature Massage is a special treat exclusive to Çatma Mescit Hammam visitors. It lasts for 60 minutes.

This massage combines both gentle and firm techniques, inspired by traditional Thai massages. It also includes aromatherapy, allowing you to choose from a variety of essential oils, or even bring your own.

Overall, the Çatma Mescit Signature Massage is a favorite among our visitors, known for its comprehensive and soothing approach.

In the very last step of your Turkish bath experience, you will move on to the cooling room. You can rest here after all of your treatments while enjoying your drinks and relaxing. All you have to do is forget the stress and worries of everyday life. Let yourself be absorbed by the calming atmosphere of this extraordinary place. Feel like a Sultan in our oasis of relaxation!
