"When I returned to Istanbul I fell in love with the domed ceilings, exquisite interiors, heated marble slabs and steamy rooms of the famous Hammam's of Turkey, and I knew I had to somehow bring this ritual into my life again and allow my children to experience something that was so culturally important to me. I also wanted to share this unique, wellness Hammam experience with everybody, in a way that would be authentic and organic." says Dr Zara Celik
Inspired by Ancient Bathing Rituals all the therapists are trained by Dr Zara to ensure authenticity. The Hammam is a hot steam hydrotherapy treatment, which has numerous healing properties, which help to increase energy levels, detoxify your body and give you an overall sense of calm.
Upon arriving I was shown around the centre by Zara who performed my hammam. She escorted me to the relaxation area and went through the procedure. Here she gave me the opportunity to ask questions and bring up any concerns.
