Traditional Moroccan Hammam Treatment

This is something that everyone should do.  You have to strip down buck naked and through a series of massages, soap downs, scrubbings with a red clay loofah, hair washings, scalp treatment, mud slurry body mask, brown oily concoctions and getting doused with pails of water and towel dried then splashed with rose water and given a freshly squeezed orange juice to rest, wow I would do it again in a heartbeat.  You cannot be of the squeamish type because pretty much every nook and cranny of your body gets the treatment, but I feel like a new born baby all soft and pampered.  Hammans are spread throughout the Medina and there are 220 of them in the Medina of Fez.
