Program Sand bath in Merzouga desert :
The Merzouga activity – sand bath in Merzouga is an ancient Berber treatment. It is helpful for curing ailments affecting the joints and also muscles. Merzouga sand bath therapy is best performed during the summer months of July and August.
For the preparation of the Merzouga desert sand bath therapy, we dig a hole in the sand in the size of the specific person taking the bath and about 20 cm deep in sand. The hole is left open for about 30 minutes to allow the heat to penetrate into the sand.
Once sufficiently hot, the Sand bath therapy person lies in the hole and is “buried” in sand leaving the head free. The Merzouga sand bath therapy person spends typically around 10-30 minutes in the bath. During the sand bath we provide full assistance.
