My local spa has just opened a hammam. I am tempted to try it out but don’t really know what type of treatment this is and what health benefits it offers?

Hammam treatment varies depending on where you have it done! In Turkey it can be quite a harsh treatment and involves being scrubbed quite vigorously and having a very deep massage afterwards. I personally experienced a hammam in Morocco a few years ago, it was in a large room with other clients there, I would not describe it as relaxing but I certainly felt very clean and like I'd had a thorough massage. In the UK we do things slightly differently. The experience is much more gentle and relaxing, you will be scrubbed on a heated plinth and showered off there, so no need to get up into a shower. The massage will also take place on the plinth, your massage should be adapted to your needs.
