Japanese Tea Garden
Your experience begins as you change into a cotton Japanese robe and enter a private viewing garden where you will be served a blended tea of organic herbs and enzymes made from 25 different plants. This soothing diuretic drink warms your body in preparation for the bath, where the enzymes work together to stimulate metabolic processes.
Enter the Bath
Your personal bath attendant will guide you and your partner or friend to the private area where cozy wooden tubs await, filled with a warm, soft and fragrant blend of finely ground evergreens and rice bran. Your bath attendant will sculpt a supportive space for you in the tub — which you may enjoy with or without a bathing suit — and will ensure that you are settled in to a comfortable position before gently covering your body. You may choose to be immersed up to your chin, or to keep your hands and chest free.
Settle into Warmth
You’ll quickly feel the warmth that is generated by biological fermentation, mimicking your bodies’ own natural metabolic processes. You may perspire, as you feel this extraordinary heat radiate through your body.
Listen to Your Body
Enjoy looking out at the beautiful view from the tub room, or choose to close your eyes and focus on feeling the sensation of the interactive process with your body. Your trained attendant will check in periodically to place cool cloths on your forehead and offer you water just when you need it. As with any heat treatment, we do not advise remaining in the bath for more than 20 minutes.
After the Bath
As you exit the cedar enzyme bath, you’ll gently brush off the bath mixture and take a shower. Once you have dried off, we’ll offer you a refreshing electrolyte drink and encourage you to continue on your path of transformation.
