Iyashi Bedrock Spa Giveaway

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. See Iyashi Bedrock Spa Giveaway.
