Tight muscles, acne flare-ups, and exhaustion are common side effects from a time zone change or packed travel schedule. If you’re taking a trip to Morocco, a visit to a local hammam will provide multiple health benefits and can relieve you of these symptoms. Part spa, part steam bath, hammams vary widely depending on which one you choose to try. They’re rooted in the tradition of communal baths and some have transformed into full luxury experiences.
Hammams are usually experienced in the nude, with discrete and separate entrances for men and women. They’re a large part of Morocco’s history and present-day culture as a popular place to socialize. When visiting Morocco, skip the trip to an expensive tourist spa and try the traditional hammam where you’ll reap these five health benefits.
