Originally from Japan, Ganbanyoku is a form of hot stone therapy made of tenshoh seki, or black silica, and natural lava rock that is heated to just over 44 degrees Celsius. The flat rock bed radiates far-infrared rays and emits negative ions to penetrate deep beneath the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s water molecules and balancing one’s energy. The therapeutic benefits include accelerated metabolism, increased circulation, and release of muscular aches and pains.
Incorporating the spa’s new feature is the launch of the spa program called Eastern Experience. The treatment begins with a 30-minute Ganbanyoku hot stone therapy, followed by a choice of a sakura or yuzu-infused rinse. Guests will then enjoy a 30-minute Azuki Bean Scrub to cleanse and exfoliate the skin while rejuvenating and brightening the complexion. A 90-minute Chinese Meridian Massage is performed to focus on acupressure points and the flow of Qi in the body to encourage a deeper relaxation of the mind and body. After the treatment, a refreshing sakura tea will be served to complete the journey.
