Origin of Ganbanyoku (岩盤浴) がんばんよく
Ganbanyoku (岩盤浴) dates back centuries. Legend has it that Japanese villagers saw snow monkeys resting on heated volcanic stones to heal their injuries and relax. The villagers began to adopt these healing practices and noticed the benefits of the treatment. Ganbanyoku has since evolved and become recognized as a beneficial and natural healing method widely used in Japan. Currently, there are more than 1,000 Ganbanyoku facilities throughout Japan.
In its Natural Sate
The secret of Ganbanyoku is in the stones. The stones are formed over thousands of years, and naturally emit Far Infrared Rays (FIR) at room temperature. When the stones are heated, they emit a greater amount of FIR which heats the body from deep within to perspire, relax and loosen tight muscles and joints. Ganbanyoku brings this natural thermal relaxation therapy all the way from Japan to Singapore!
What are Far Infrared Rays?
Far Infrared Rays (FIR) exists everywhere. They are waves of energy invisible to the naked eye, which penetrate the surface of the skin and warms the body. FIR heat penetrates deep into the skin and resonates with the cells and invigorates them. They can reach the inner areas of the muscles, bones and tissues, providing warmth and healing.
