History or Turkish Hamam Spa or Turkish Bath:
While you might not be in Turkey and the days of public bathing are far less common, the relaxing remedies and practices have been widely adopted and modified by a number of different counties and cities including Amsterdam.
And after this Pampering Spa Day during your hen weekend in Amsterdam, you'll be glad it made it's way over to the Netherlands.
While historians don't exactly know when people started to bathe publicly in Turkey, they know the Ottoman Turks inherited the Roman bath concept in both architecture and tradition. And, just like the Roman Baths, the Turkish Hamam Spa or Turkish Bath is a steam room where people go to clean themselves. This was usually a weekly ritual and was considered a social activity in villages and towns, with men, women, and children all participating. Of course, the baths are separated by gender and many people would spend hours there chatting with friends and socialising.
While in today's age people bathe and shower at home, the public Hammam Spa or Hammam Bath is still a major part of the culture, as much a place about cleansing as it is about relaxing.
Generally, the process at a Turkish Hamam Spa or Turkish Bath is that you first soak in a pool or sit in a steam room, then you’re rinsed, exfoliated, and massaged. And, this is all done completely nude.
But don't worry if you don't feel comfortable being completely naked in front of a bunch of strangers, while the rest of the world has adopted the emphasis of steaming, relaxing and bathing, not all the methods and practices have been kept from the traditional times. This means you'll be able to wear your swimsuit. All Turkish Hamam Spas and baths vary, but generally, you'll steam, soak, relax and feel amazing!
And it's no exception with this Pampering Spa Day!
