WHAT IS GANBAN-YOKU
Do you remember what it’s like to feel this good?
Ganban-yoku is a very popular form of The Stone Detox & Sleep therapy in Japan.
This therapeutic retreat features Ganban-yoku with rare, natural stones found only in certain areas of the world
These stones are embedded in the comfortably heated flat slab beds and release remedial warmth to heat your body from the inside out.
The session will promote health, healing, and relaxation for the body through unique and silky perspiration for a truly revitalizing visit.
DO I LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER???
Ganban-yoku has been shown to produce an anti-ageing effect on body cells, by promoting the skin cell turnover cycle.
It also promoting collagen and elastin production, leading to skin and hair that stays smooth and healthy.
In addition, the high-quality, odourless sweat produced during the treatment helps the sebaceous glands secrete copious amounts of sebum that help restore, condition and protect the skin.
The sweat combined with sebum acts like a natural moisturizer that leads to dewy, glowing skin.
The secret of the treatment is in the stones. We specially imported stones that naturally emit Far-Infrared rays (FIR) and negative ions.
FIR gently and evenly warms the innermost part of the body.
When the body temperature rises in this manner, it creates an environment to help balance out the nervous system and hormones.
It also helps to sleep well, detox the body, reduce joint pain, muscle stiffness, boost natural immune systems and improve overall bodily function.

FIR released from stones dilates blood vessels and improves circulation of the body. Even the fingers and toes feel warm after the session.
A single session will be equivalent to 20 min of jogging. It can burn roughly
200 cal just by lying down.
Deep and gentle heat from the stone slowly raises the core temperature. This promotes better digestion, relieves constipation and reduces stomach pain.
The treatment produces high-quality odorless sweat that can be patted dry. It mixes well with sebum secreted during the treatment and creates a natural lotion that keeps the skin moisturized and helps it glow.
IMPROVED SLEEP QUALITY
Ganban-yoku helps to improve the quality of sleep by equally engaging sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Some find it easier to fall asleep up to 5-7days after the session.
Ganban-yoku tunes the nervous system to help reduce stress, anxiety and mood swings. Ganban-yoku rooms are also great place to meditate. Allowing one to go deeper into meditative state easier.
EASE JOINT PAIN
FIR warmth reaches deep into the joints to help reduce pain in the area. It provides more blood and oxygen in the problem area to help with the recovery process.
Increased blood flow by the deep and gentle heat boost the activities of internal organs such as liver and kidney. This enhances the body's natural ability to getting rid of excess waste, balancing electrolytes, and creating hormones.
Prolonged regular treatment keeps skin smooth and healthy. It also helps to maintain the proper skin cell turnover cycle.

This was our first visit here. My boyfriend was skeptical at first but after the Detox treatment, He felt relaxed + calm and refreshed. We both enjoyed the Shiatsu massage, she worked on pressure points. After the Ganban-yoku our skin felt soft. This was a total relaxation experience! A perfect way to de-stress!
ET + Me
I had just taught an hour 1/2 of Zumba which resulted in some pretty stressed joints & muscles. The Gabnan-yoku was the perfect way to wind down and relax. My aches are gone. This is my 3rd visit here and always such a pleasure and a lovely reminder of my many spa/hot spring visits while living in Japan. Thank you
These past few weeks have been very difficult for me. The exceptional service, interest in my well-being, and knowledge have granted me a safe place to allow new changes to be welcomed, and to release a past that no longer serves me. I believe attending Ganbn-yoku here for the week has aided in changing my path for the better. This is a very special place. I am forever grateful for its magic.
