Hammam Body Wash and Scrub
Archimedes Banya is the only place in the Bay Area where you can try Hammam skin exfoliation body wash: a post sauna treatment performed with nutrient rich soaps, minerals, foam, oils, and coarse spa gloves. We're pleased to offer four different Hammams, each featuring unique qualities to relax you while pampering your skin and leaving it silky soft for days after the visit. During each service warm water is poured creating feelings of deep euphoria and a cleansing energy throughout the body.
Archimedes Hammam $48 for 30 minutes
A luxurious body wash and scrub using olive oil soap, foam, and exfoliating spa gloves. The therapist pours warm water all over your body throughout the treatment, leaving you relaxed, fresh, and soft for days!
Mustard and Beer Hammam $55 for 30 minutes
An absolutely unique service including white mustard and beer emulsion full body mask for 3 – 5 minutes following the basic Archimedes Hammam. The therapist then uses a soft sponge to cleanse the skin.
Turkish Hammam $70 for 40 minutes
Coarse kessa mits and a cotton bag filled with light foam are used to exfoliate the skin. Thousands of bubbles nourish and soften the skin before being washed away with hot water and a second round of scrubbing.
Moroccan Hammam $92 for 60 minutes
Coarse kessa mits, spa gloves, and olive oil soap are used to polish and prime the skin for a rhassoul clay body mask. As the mask sets, the therapist shampoos and conditions the hair with restorative argan oil products.
Royal Hammam $120 for 75 minutes
The Royal Hammam begins with a Swedish massage in one of our heated wet rooms. Your therapist will use warm oil and long, flowing strokes to stretch your limbs and knead your body. After your muscles are relaxed your therapist uses a coarse mitt to deeply cleanse your skin. After the initial exfoliation, your therapist will use Moroccan olive oil soap and exfoliating spa gloves to massage and scrub away a layer of dead skin. Warm water is poured over your body, soothing your mind while washing away foam and debris. After completing a massage and scrub to both sides of the body, an invigorating neck and head massage is administered to punctuate this luxurious treatment.
