Iyashi Bedrock Spa
I got to experience a little taste of Japan - Ganbanyoku, which means rock bathing on a black silica stone bed heated to 44C. Lying on a hot bedrock just warmed my body to the core. I felt like I was on a hot island enjoying the heat, sweating out toxins, impurities and stress.
After the 90 minute session, which included 30 minutes of rock bathing, followed by 60 minutes of yin yoga, I was so calm and refreshed. My skin was glowing and I looked so vibrant. This was truly a unique experience, much different than hot yoga, as the heat comes from the floor and rises up.
As I first entered the Iyashi Bedrock Spa, the welcoming atmosphere and zen decor was quite relaxing. The lady at reception showed me around and took me into the change room. You get your own locker, towels, slippers, and a cup for water or tea. The lounge area had every you needed to make you feel a little pampered.
Practicing the 60 minute yin yoga class on the stone bed was quite amazing, as your body is already hot from the 30 minutes of laying on the bedrock. Holding the yoga postures for a few minutes really stretches your connective tissues and rejuvenates your joints. This is beneficial for injury prevention from all kinds of high impact sports, as you focus on increasing energy flow to the deeper tissues of your body.
Benefits of Rock bathing
There are so many amazing benefits to the Ganbanyoku Spa Treatment. From relaxation, stress relief, anti-aging and sickness prevention, you will definitely come out of a treatment feeling more lighter, brighter and happier than you were before. Here's what Iyashi Bedrock Spa has to say about these benefits:
The sebum that is produced from the sebaceous gland supplies a natural coating for the skin and hair - making them both smooth and silky. It is recommended not to shower within two hours after the treatment to gain the most benefits to the skin and hair. This detoxification and rejuvenation of skins cells is what leads to the natural 'glow' of the skin and the appearance of beauty.
Black silica rock-bathing treatments help increase your body's temperature throughout by first heating up your body core and can help prevent you from catching unwanted colds and other sicknesses. People can choose Iyashi's signature rock-bathing treatment as a natural way to heal the body through natural health.
People can burn approximately 700 to 1,500 calories in a 60 minute treatment which is equal to the energy expended in a 6 to 9 mile run. This is excellent for people who don't exercise yet want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program.
