Let us tell you how, why and for what Hammam Farasha was born. Let us tell you a dream, our dream, our passion and why this desire to live wonderful adventures took us through roads full of incredible surprises. Once upon a time …
Let us tell you, although surely you already know, that life is not always fair but in exchange it always gives you new opportunities. Let us tell you that thanks to these opportunities, we gain strength, with new enthusiasm and energy, to discover a new way of living life, traveling, discovering new sensations, other cultures and, why not, other ways of pampering and taking care of ourselves.
And with this great curiosity for nature we discovered a millennial ritual. Living adventures in countries like Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco took us to enter the wonderful world of the Hammam Ritual.
They say that the first ones to caress each other were the Romans and that it was them who invented the first Spa, used as a Latin expression salus per aquam, and that can be translated as health through water. And it was undoubtedly through Roman baths when this Ritual began. In first place, the users were accompanied to a Apodyterium or wardrobe where they deposited their clothes and their personal objects and these were watched by a slave. Later, they were directed to the Tepidarium, which consisted of a warm room that prepared them for the folllowing one and which was called Laconimun or steam bath, central place and social gathering point and where the ritual of hygiene was carried out.
Many were those who adopted their undoubted benefits. Europeans knew them for their contacts with the Ottomans and in Eastern Europe they were popular during the Victorian Era. Streets of Muslim Cordoba housed more than 600 in its heyday. But what is certain is that over the centuries it continues to evolve and adapt, just as an expert chooses the best ingredients to mix and obtains the best results.
If you have ever had the opportunity to feel its benefits, you will know what we are talking about when you remember how good it feels to get rid of all your unnecessary cells so that your skin breathes freely. Surely you will understand. And it is that sense of renewal that we want you to discover through the Hammam Ritual.
And that is why we gave our center the name of Hammam Farasha. Farasha means butterfly. It’s his phonetics in Arabic. And the butterfly is metamorphosis, leaving behind a skin that no longer serves us, that prevents us from flying. It’s renewal, it’s freedom. It is transformation, it is change, it is opportunity, it is rebirth.
