Hammam Body Wash and Scrub Massage
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 Banya Hammam
Our own signature basic treatment performed with exfoliating spa gloves and European olive oil based soap. A therapist lathers your body with the olive oil soap while exfoliating your skin and pouring warm water over your entire body.
Mustard and Beer Hammam
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.
Performed using an organic cotton bag and nourishing soap to create endless amounts of skin softening foam. After lathering you with the foam your therapist exfoliates old skin with goat hair gloves. The hammam ends by a light massage with Citrus essential oil and gives you complete Istanbul experience and great feeling.
Our top skin healing therapy starts with a wash using Moroccan made Black Beldi soap and the spa gloves. Then a Rhassoul clay mask is applied to your body for detoxification, toning, and rejuvenation. While the mask is setting, your therapist uses an organic shampoo to gently rinse your hair. When the skin and hair are cleansed Argan oil rich in antioxidants is applied to the body to help it maintaining a youthful, glowing appearance. It is ideal for healing blemishes caused by acne.
