Before and after a Turkish Hammam treatment at Tattva Spa, it’s important to consider certain precautions to ensure a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience. While the specific guidelines may vary based on individual health conditions and the spa’s policies, here are general precautions to keep in mind:
Before the Turkish Hammam Treatment:
Before your treatment, ensure that you are well-hydrated. Drinking water helps prepare your body for the heat and helps with the detoxification process.
It’s advisable to eat a light meal before your Turkish Hammam treatment. A heavy meal may make you feel uncomfortable during the steam session.
Inform the Therapist:
Inform your therapist about any health conditions, allergies, or sensitivities you may have. This information helps them tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
Avoid Sun Exposure:
It’s recommended to avoid prolonged sun exposure before your hammam treatment, as your skin may be more sensitive.
Avoid Caffeine and Alcohol:
Limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol before the treatment, as these substances can contribute to dehydration.
Remove any jewelry before the treatment to ensure a comfortable and safe experience.
After the Turkish Hammam Treatment:
Drink plenty of water after the treatment to rehydrate your body, especially if you’ve sweated during the steam session.
Rest and Relaxation:
Allow yourself time to rest and relax after the treatment. Avoid strenuous activities immediately afterward to fully enjoy the benefits of the spa experience.
Avoid Sun Exposure:
It’s advisable to avoid prolonged sun exposure after the treatment, as your skin may be more sensitive. If you need to go out in the sun, use sunscreen and cover exposed skin.
After the hammam treatment, moisturize your skin to lock in hydration. This helps maintain the softness and suppleness achieved during the treatment.
Avoid Hot Showers or Baths:
It’s recommended to avoid hot showers or baths immediately after the hammam treatment, as your body has already experienced heat during the session.
Use the restroom before your treatment to ensure that you’re comfortable during the entire experience.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing after the treatment to allow your skin to breathe and maintain a relaxed state.
If your hair was treated during the hammam, follow any specific instructions provided by the spa regarding washing and care.
Remember to follow any specific guidelines provided by Tattva Spa or the therapists, as they may have additional recommendations based on the specific hammam treatment you receive. If you have any health concerns or conditions, it’s advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before undergoing spa treatments.
