がんばんよく (岩盤浴)

( )
As you all already know... I frequent Ganbanyoku for several reasons! One of which is to add positive influence to my state of wellness. Each day I work towards maximizing my level of health and wellness to live long, full and healthy life. The pursuit of health, personal grown, and improved quality of life relies on living a balanced life. So in order to achieve that balance, you gotta care for your mind, body and spirit.

It is not that hard to integrate wellness into your daily routine (and making it stick). Here's some tips on how you can integrate wellness into your daily life. Obviously easy and least intimidating ways on how to practice self-care and personalize them for your budget and lifestyle.

1. Start your day with lemon water 

I learnt from my F45 Challenge that drinking hot water with lemon every morning on an empty stomach will help to boost the metabolism and aid digestion throughout the day. It also cleanses the liver and brightens skin.

2. Get regular massages. Or self-massage. 

I tried TCM massage for the first time when I visited Shen Zhen and I was so blown away by how the masseuse personalized each massage by feeling how the muscles respond when working deep into the tissue. If you're an athlete especially, it is imperative to roll out the connective tissue between your skin and muscles to prevent tearing, and to work out lactic acid build-up.

If massages aren't feasible for you, no problemo! You know the little spikey massage balls and foam rollers sold at Decathlon, KMart, World of Sports and Rebel?  They are miracle workers. Massage balls and foam rolling are just as beneficial as a spa treatment.

3. Exercise 

If paying for Class Pass isn't your kinda jam, you can try practicing 15mins of yoga or HIIT every morning in your room or living room. You can find a huge selection of free workouts on Blogilates and PopSugarFitness on YouTube. See... now you have no excuse for avoiding movement!

4. Make conscious healthier choices and HAVE FUN!

We all cave in to sinful treats. To be perfectly honest, I do have days where I ate a whole pizza, a few slices of chocolate cake, have way too many glasses of wine... That's totally ok! Try to make healthier choices on most of the days! Feeling lethargic? Ganbanyoku. Feel like you needed a sweat sesh but don't wanna workout? Ganbanyoku. Holistic healing is for everyone and I'm glad to have Ganbanyoku as one of my go-to place for wellness.

Ganbanyoku - Japanese Holistic Healing Therapy

( )
"Wellness" - the active pursuit of health and well-being through lifestyle choices - does seem like an airy-fairy concept. I got to admit... after implementing wellness into my life, by just changing my lifestyle and making better choices. I'm a creature of habit and relatively product loyal. 

Hence my love for Ganbanyoku, also known as "Rock Bathing" in Japanese. It uses precious magma stones from Japan to heat the body from the outside in. The heated stones naturally release Far Infrared Rays and negative ions to speed up the release of toxins through perspiration. When you lay on the stone, your body's acupressure points will be stimulated which help to alleviate joint, muscular and nerve pain. A 60-minute session helps to detox and rejuvenate, at an affordable price of $20/hr. 

The origin of Ganbanyoku dates back centuries. It traces back to the Tamagawa natural hot sprices located in the Akita Prefecture, in Japan, where people with injuries and illnesses have cured themselves by lying on the rocks heated by the natural hot springs. 

Benefits of Ganbanyoku 
  • Improves blood circulation 
  • Treats sinusitis
  • Eases chronic fatique 
  • Relieves joint pain 
  • Aids in muscle recovery 
  • Aids digestion 
  • Eases constipation 
  • Ideal for meditation

I visit Ganbanyoku for wellness and healing. After a few sessions my habits have changed for the better and I'm consequently more mindful of my physical and mental condition. Just have fun, see wellness as a reward, not punishment. At the end of the day, wellness is not a scary status symbol or a fad that you will forget in a few months. I'm recommending this to you because I authentically believe in it, and benefit from it. 

Ganbanyoku uses Tensho Seki stones, they are embedded in the form of comfortable, smooth slab beds, which are heated 24 hours. 

Ganbanyoku is equipped with awesome facilities (shower, hair dryer, dressing room, rest area, free flow of water and green tea)
