General characteristicsSteam baths, Turkish baths, or hammams, as they are called Morocco, use steam for cleansing the body through transpiration of the skin. Their origins date back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, and their cleansing effect and health benefits mean they continue to be used today.A steam bath is a room where relative humidity is kept at 100%, with a fine mist produced due to stratified temperature, from 20-25 °C at floor level, up to 40-50 °C at head level.
