Rhassoulbath spa therapy
Rhassoulbath therapy is a traditional Arabian body treatment which involves steam and mud rich in minerals. Rhassoul is basically a mineral clay that has been used as a soap for many years, thanks to its healing properties.
Rhassoulbath therapy takes place in a special room, which is equipped with a private heated bed. On this bed, you can try wellness therapies, such as peeling and mud therapies with thermal or sea clay. Peeling exfoliates the skin, removes dead shells, and drastically improves blood circulation. At the same time, the mud accelerates cells’ renewal and slows aging.
Smooth skin, less cellulite, detoxed body, and young-looking figure!

To quote Leοnardo Da Vinci, "The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art!".
