Weight loss expert Louise Parker enjoys the steamy sociability of a hammam
With a client list that includes the Duchess of Cambridge, Sandi Toksvig and Emma Thompson, Louise Parker is firmly established as an A-list weight loss consultant – but what of her own wellbeing regime?
As Suzanne introduces Louise to this ancient Middle-Eastern bathing ritual, and we experience the heat and steam, chills and shrills of the finest hammam in London, Louise reveals her journey from drama student to body transformation guru. Specializing in amazing results and permanent habit change, Louise’s approach cuts through the fads in the most accessible way possible – rather like a traditional hammam!
Part steam, massage, skin cleansing and social gathering, a hammam is a glorious combination of adjective, verb and noun!
So leave the hustle and bustle, the noise and screens behind, and join wellness journalist Suzanne Duckett on a journey into relaxation and the wonderful, watery world of wellbeing. To celebrate the release of her new book Bathe, she is inviting some special guests to join her in some truly immersive experiences: discovering the invigorating power of bath and birch, the emotional harmony of sound and steam, and the soothing energy of mud and ice.
And you won’t be left behind – in this podcast, listeners get up close and personal with the experience: the benefits, secrets and sounds of each treatment.
Start the year with some new experiences: close your eyes and plunge into a world of wellness. Bathing is a primal ritual, but it’s never been more relevant. The conversation starts here.
The podcast series will be 6 episodes long launching Jan 14th and guests include Liz Earle, Melissa Hemsley, Ward Thomas and many more. Bathe: The Podcast was created and produced in-house by Bonnier Books UK to celebrate the publication of Suzanne Duckett’s new book Bathe
