The Moroccan Hammam tradition goes back hundreds of years and while it is an integral part of Moroccan culture, the custom extends beyond North Africa, to Turkey, Syria, the UAE and the rest of the world. Although the setting varies – from common, public facilities where patrons gather to gossip, to more private, high-end 5 star experiences – the motions remain the same. They always involve lots of steam, vigorous scrubbing and a fantastic sense of well-being afterwards. Moroccan Hammam’s (‘Hammam’ meaning bathroom in Arabic) at Bella Luna are private affairs.
Though our hammam is completely private, we can provide services to couples as well. The hammam is not a place for those that are shy about their body and others seeing it. When you walk into Hammam Luna the room will be comfortably darkened, you go in and lie on a pre-warmed marble bench. Process: The hammam starts by allowing the skin to warm and moisten and pores to open. The skin is then cleaned with Moroccan Savon Noir, a natural black soap that is make from olives that softens the skin and swells the dead skin cells allowing them to be easily removed. The second step of the process is the removal of the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin with the help of a Moroccan Exfoliating Glove, or Kessa. The client lays on a slab of marble and is vigorously scrubbed down froim head to toe. This glove exfoliates when rubbed onto the skin properly, causing the skin to literally shed dead skin. Next, we rinse your body with warm water to clear the area from the scubbing and a mask of Moroccan Rhassoul Clay is applied. A massage is perform at this time, allowing the clay to really absorb into the skin and clean deep within the pores. Deep within the Atlas Moutains the clay is mined and processed into a dry powder and then mixed with water for the hammam. The clay is known for is absorbtion characteristics. Notably, rhassoul is able to absorb 1.66 times its weight in toxins and oils and it is filled with amazing natural minerals. Once the clay has sit for approximately 15 minutes, it is rinsed off and you are left feeling baby smooth.

What is Reflexology? Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health.The benefits of reflexology are said to include relaxation of the body and mind relieving stress and tension, improving the circulation of blood and lymphatic systems, and improvement of the nervous system functioning.
Therapeutic massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. The massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. This may differ from a relaxation massage, where the therapist uses lighter pressure to help reduce stress and will likely provide a general, all over massage rather than targeting specific problem areas.

Effleurage is basically a form of massage involving a circular stroking movement made with the palm of the hand. This massage is for people who do not like deep tissue and just want a soft, relaxing massage.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply. This massage also includes aromatherapy.
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body to relieve pain.

This massage relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body.It increases the amount of endorphin "happy hormone" and reduces migranes and sinus.
