Souss-Massa, in addition to cultural, architectural, and coastal attractions, provides numerous possibilities to rest and care for one’s body and mind. Enhanced by the Region’s natural wealth and landscapes, many therapeutic and aesthetic experiences are available to you, from which you will emerge with a new skin!
The Hammam routine, which moisturizes, repairs, and remineralizes the skin, is an ancestral tradition passed down through generations all over Morocco. Unlike its Turkish version, the Moroccan Hammam uses dry heat that is diffused through the building’s floor and walls. The ritual, which is both a true experience and a moment of escape, is divided into various stages:
When you come out of the bath, you’ll be served a refreshing mint and thyme tea. After a long and wonderful session, it revitalizes the body and balances its temperature.
Agadir’s hotels, particularly those by the sea, are world-renowned for their balneotherapy centers. And for good reason: the pools are fed directly by the Atlantic, which is only a few meters away, and therefore provides unequalled thalassotherapy sessions. Thalassotherapy, which can be used to treat or prevent muscle tiredness, tension, insomnia, back pain, and even osteoarthritis, provides calm, energy, radiance, and recovery. These remarkable properties are due to the minerals and vitamins found in seawater, which are necessary for the body’s health.
If you want such treatments and massages, there are numerous sophisticated Spas and Hammams to choose from. Argan oil massages, Ghassoul and Tazegmout treatments, honey and royal jelly masks, detox herbal drinks with thyme and rosemary, and other local items are all popular. Some places also provide mud baths and Hijama-cupping massages.
