Warm up and wind down in a unique waterless sauna featuring a rare Japanese ore.
Bedrock bathing may not sound relaxing, but don’t let the name mislead you. Known in Japan as ganbanyoku, this popular prac- tice involves resting on heated rocks to sweat out toxins.
Iyashi Bedrock Spa uses slabs of black silica—an ore so rare the Japanese have nicknamed it ‘the phantom ore.’ Black silica emits far infrared rays and negative ions which encourage skin to release sebum, leaving it silky smooth. And clients can expect to sweat out 300–700 calories in one session. “It’s the equivalent of a six-to-nine-mile run just by lying down for an hour,” says Norma Percy, co-owner at Iyashi.
Black silica also eases aches and pains and strengthens the immune system. Experience the healing benefits of ganbanyoku for yourself at Iyashi.
More than a sauna
Iyashi offers yoga and pilates classes in their ganbanyoku rooms, where far infrared rays and negative ions ramp up weight loss and detoxification.
