The masseur and scrubber will be the same sex as you are
Standard soap is used. If you have sensitive skin or are allergic to some products, bring your own soap

TURKISH BATH (HAMMAM)
Dressing Room Here, an attendant will assign you a locker and give you a pair of slippers. Most people go nude under the pestemal, but wear a swimsuit if you wish to.
Navel Stone In the centre of the hot room is a large slab of marble. Lie down and wait for the attendant. You will be covered in soap suds, and scrubbed all over with the kese. Then you will be lathered again, washed with a cloth, and soap-massaged. Finally, your hair will be washed, and you will be vigorously rinsed with buckets of water.
1584, is commonly hailed as one of the most beautiful. Designed by Sinan, it was commissioned by Selim II’s wife Nurbanu Sultan, as a way of providing financial support for the Atik Valide Sultan Mosque in Uskudar, of which she was the sponsor. Today, Çemberlitaş is still used by Turks, but is the most popular tourist and photographers – it’s a regular location for film and fashion shoots.
The dressing room areas are roofed with large domes and the baths have 38 washing basins. The large dome covering the hot section (Harare) is supported by high arches on top of columns with baklava-shaped heads. Marble slab walls topped by tulip shapes separate the cubicles from the main area. These dividers have inscriptions carved into each side. This building dates to Sinan’s last period, known to be his most skilful. For this reason, the baths attract Turkish and foreign researchers alike, as well as thousands of bathers.
