spaQ Gold Coast’s infamous Hammam-inspired steam rooms
Heard about spaQ Gold Coast’s infamous Hammam-inspired steam rooms & wondering what the fuss is about?
spaQ Gold Coast’s hip designer day spas contain mozaic-tiled Hammam-inspired steam room.
Following the ancient philosophies of traditional Turkish and ancient Roman baths which functioned as steam-filled grottos for social gatherings, a session in our Hammam-inspired steam rooms is a cleansing, detoxifying and ultimately relaxing addition to our carefully sequenced, ritualistic spa journeys.
Detoxifying & immune boosting: One of the quickest ways to get rid of unwanted toxins in your body, a steam session harnesses the body’s ability to sweat toxins away through our 2.5 million glands. The increase in our core temperature is also said to provide a boost to our immune system micro-organisms unable to tolerate the raised body temperature are weakened and/or killed.
Relaxing: Perhaps one of the more noticeable instant benefits however are the relaxing effects on both the mind and the body which put our guests in an ideal state to make the most of their treatments with us. spaQ Hammam interiors are luxuriously appointed, creating a haven from the outside world further enhancing their restorative feel.
Beneficial for the skin: Following a Hammam-inspired steam session, your skin will glow and feel more hydrated; the heat causes your veins to become larger and more superficial with the resultant increased flow of blood helping to nourish your skin from the inside.
What to bring: Our Hammam-inspired steam room is unisex and guests must wear swimwear at all times. Robes, slippers, fresh towels and filtered drinking water are provided and the change rooms are equipped with organic Uspa amenities to complete the cleansing experience. If you wish to use the Hammam-inspired steam room ahead of your treatment, we recommend arriving 45 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment time.
