Imagine your whole body covered in a special olive oil bubble foam.
You might not be familiar with this treatment. It is much more than a regular massage. It is a relaxing and purifying treatment that cleanses the whole body. Turkish Bath is the oldest cleansing bath ritual in the world. A beautiful treatment where your face, hands, feet, and hair are washed with natural soap.
The Art of Sauna Turkish Bath is a purifying and refreshing ceremony inspired by the genuine ancient ritual practiced in Byzantine times. The treatment promotes well-being for body, mind and spirit.
Here at Art of Sauna in Burnaby we perform the only authentic Turkish Bath treatment in the lower mainland. This treatment will soothe your body and mind, and your skin will feel smooth and look bright.
The treatment starts in one of our 2 different steam rooms. The Eucalyptus Aroma Steam is the one we especially recommend. Your relaxation process begins here for the first 15 minutes. The high temperature will prepare your skin for the hammam treatment. You will start sweating which will make your skin more soft and elastic.
After that you will be taken to the beautiful Egyptian Rasul which is a private room inside our traditional Hammam. Here you will lay down on a heated stone table and your body will be cleansed from head to toe. First the masseuse will scrub your body for about ten minutes using a Kese Mitt Glove. It is an authentic Turkish Bath Hammam abrasive glove meant to remove the dead skin from the body which allows for healthy skin cells to take its place. You might be surprised at the amount of skin peeling away! This exfoliation process will prepare your body for a deep cleansing.
Then… you get bathed. You will be covered with natural olive oil soap foam. With a cotton cloth the masseuse will form big white pieces of foam and spread it evenly all over your body. You will be gently foam washed from hair to feet. After that your body will be rinsed with warm water.
After enjoying a full body wash you have the option to follow the bath with a coconut cream and honey mask – depending on whether you choose the Sultan or the Cleopatra package.
Treat yourself to this total rejuvenation and experience the many benefits of this cleansing ritual.
