The hamam hot air bathing ritual was one of the most important pillars of the social life of the Ottoman Empire.
Far more than a simple place of bathing, the Hamam was a sanctuary where men and women gathered to be renewed.
On a day to day basis pilgrimages to the hamam would take place. The Turkish hamam is home of the tradition of physical and spiritual purification. As the body and skin are cleaned and purified from toxins, blood circulation increases and the immune system is stimulated supporting one, both physically and mentally.
The Hamam at Ten Spa reawakens this lost cleansing and rejuvenating ritual.
Ten's Hamam rituals are performed by expert therapists trained in the secrets of Hamam.
