In a traditional hammam, privacy is discarded in favour of efficiency and cost, although men and women are always segregated.
At Hammam Medina we respect your privacy and we are happy for men and women to experience the the Hammam at the same time.
While a hammam treatment is best described as "full body," neither men nor women are scrubbed in any of their private areas. In modern hammams, the therapists are trained, and if anyone wants to keep covered, they are able to do so.
A Hammam is a steam room, similar to a Turkish bath, where Moroccans habitually go several times each week to cleanse themselves
The Hammam is an incredibly important part of Moroccan culture and life. Men, women and children will visit their local Hammam at least once a week, and spend two or three hours there (sometimes even longer!!), catching up on gossip with their friends, and following the long rituals for cleansing their bodies until their skin glows.
