The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus is offering an exclusive and unique treatment: The Private Hammam Moments Ritual is designed to smooth and purify skin instantly, combining the time-honoured Turkish bathing ritual with 21st century style.
This two-hour therapy begins with a 45-minute traditional Turkish hammam treatment to thoroughly cleanse the body by getting rid of dead skin. (Hammam treatments reportedly help to activate blood circulation and open pores.) The hammam is followed by a 15-minute thermal mud body mask with renewed ingredients and rich minerals that help to increase blood circulation while regenerating skin. (This special mask improves sleep quality.) After the application, the skin is cleansed without losing its moisture.
The highlight of the treatment is the 60-minute energy deep massage following the thermal mud mask, which includes cleansing, purification, massage and relaxation, scented with traditional attar (essences) of rose, pine, sandalwood or lemon.
The Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus is located at Çırağan Cad. No. 28 in Istanbul. Visit www.fourseasons.com/bosphorus for more information.
