Hammam, meaning “spreader of warmth” in Arabic, takes its roots thousands of years back with the Greeks and Romans, who developed it as a social ritual. The steam rooms provide moist heat from a water-filled generator pumping steam at around 45 degrees Celsius, with a level of 100% humidity in the room. It is basically a wet version of the sauna. Bathing sessions alternate with jumps into a cold plunge or shower and rest at room temperature before another around.
Steam heat opens the pores and promotes the body detoxification of the outer skin. It raises the body temperature above normal and stimulates the immune system. Heat makes you sweat and relax, lower your pulse and blood pressure by causing blood vessels to dilate. Hammam sessions help to relieve pain and relax muscles.
