The skin is the largest and most important eliminative organ in the body and is responsible for one quarter of the body’s detoxification each day. Detoxification is performed by a number of organs, glands and transportation systems including the skin, liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system and mucous membranes. Dry brushing stimulates the organs of detoxification to function more efficiently which has a myriad of benefits for the body.

Rumi’s Caravan has travelled through the land of Oz (Osmosis), leaving it’s indelible mark on the hearts of those attending, the Japanese garden that held us and the clear skies that reigned above our heads.

The second place I visited with my friend Kazuko Takahashi was in the middle of Tokyo. From what we have learned it is typical of the majority of the many small family enzyme bath establishments found in all parts of Japan.
Last fall my friend Duke from Ten Thousand waves, the Japanese style hot tub spa in Santa Fe New Mexico, forwarded me an article about the enzyme bath published in the Japan Times suggesting there was growing interest in this esoteric therapy.
This article became the impetus to visit Japan for the first time in many years.
Located 1.5 hours north of San Francisco, Osmosis is a Japanese style retreat with beautiful bonsai and bamboo gardens.
Osmosis is the only day spa in the U.S. that offers the Cedar Enzyme Bath, a rejuvenating heat treatment from Japan.
