Anyone who’s spent even a few days in London knows how quickly the grime of the city can build up on the body. Yes, London is vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan, but like all metropolitan behemoths the air quality is poor due to the non-stop traffic on the roads. Add in the stagnant atmosphere on the tube, air conditioned shops and offices, and you’ve got a pretty toxic mix for your skin and respiratory system. Which is why having a hammam is such a great option for residents and visitors to the city.
Spending time in the heat and steam helps clear the respiratory tract and opens up the pores while the soapy scrubbing you receive sloughs off dirt and dead skin. So if you want to feel refreshed and revitalised we recommend the following London spas for your hammam experience.
Hammam Ritual At The Spa At Dolphin Square
The Spa at Dolphin Square offers a premium hammam treatment. They take a traditional approach by using a traditional soap made of crushed olives and eucalyptus. This gives your skin a really deep cleanse before being scrubbed away with a Kessa glove.
Traditional Hammam At SO Spa Sofitel St. James
Melt away tensions in the luxurious surroundings of the Sofitel St. James. This 30 minute treatment gives you the full hammam effect and is wonderful followed up with a massage or facial.
Hammam Essentials At Spa London Wimbledon
If you’re short on time Spa London Wimbledon offer several shorter hammam rituals that can be enjoyed alone or in different combinations. In just 25 minutes you can enjoy a full body soap cleanse, scrub and wash. Alternatively you can enjoy just the soap and wash, or the mineral scrub. The choice is yours.
Hammam Specialities At Spa London Swiss Cottage
If you want to indulge in an extra special hammam treatment, the speciality treatments at Spa London Swiss Cottage aren’t to be missed. The full Hammam Experience is a 60 minute session using soaps and scrubs made from organic ingredients. Taking the time over your hammam is well worth it for the intense relaxation you’ll experience from the shea butter massage after you’ve been scrubbed.
A hammam will leave you feeling rejuvenated from head to toe and ready to face anything London can throw at you. Explore our blog to find out more about hammams.
