Hamam Elements: Gobektasi (Heated Marble Bed) ‘’Heated marble slab to lie on for sweating in a Turkish bath’’ In the center of the Hamam (Turkish-bath) is  a raised marble platform “gobektasi” (navel stone). This is a bearable hot platform for you to relax, sit, lay, work up a sweat, get your scrub and soap massages. You will get a brisk rub of your body with a coarse loofah mitt to remove layers of dead skin.
Kese (Traditional Turkish Bath Scrub) ‘’Traditionally, the masseurs in the baths, tellak in Turkish, were young men who helped wash clients by soaping and scrubbing their bodies.’’ (Whole body peeling with Kese) This massage is for relaxing the muscles and for curring muscle stiffness and relieving cramps due to stress and exposure to wind. It is a process for removing the dead skin cells off with 'Kese' in Hamam, without any pain. The scrub (Kese) will purify your skin and you will feel your skin breathe.
