The Classic Circuit includes the following 7 steps:
1- Sogukluk: The hamam begins with the visitor dressed in a pestemal (body towel) in the steam room. This is important to accustom the body to the heat. Duration: 10 minutes.
2- Kese: In this stage the pestemal is put to one side. The skin is rubbed with a special peeling glove (kese). The body is then rinsed with lukewarm water from the fountain (kuma). Duration: 5-10 minutes.
3- Sicaklik: In the heart of the hamam there is a warm water swimming pool which aids relaxation and rest. This helps stabilize the body temperature. Duration: 10 minutes.
4- Bingül: The next step is the detoxification of the body with a 55°C herb-infused steam bath. Duration: 10-15 minutes.
5- Lif: Uncovered by the pestemal, the skin is rubbed with an olive-based soap. Duration: 5-7 minutes.
6- Gobek tasi: This stage relaxes the body and stimulates the immune system, with the visitor lying on a heated stone. This slowly raises body temperature by just one degree. Duration: 5-10 minutes.
7- Camekan: Enjoy tea or juice and some oriental bites in the relaxation room.
