The first Japanese Gaban-yoko spa in Singapore!

Saturday, April 7, 2012 / , , , , ,


MEH! You must be thinking.... This looks like a regular piece of bread but did you know that it has been left  out in the open since 31st March 2011. Try zooming in. There's no mold, no weird smell and it doesn't even look gross. How is that even possible?

Okay fine... It was actually left out in the the Anti Oxidant Centre which I went to 2 weeks ago! If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that my gfs and I had a little pampering spa session. :>

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the owner of this spa to do a review of their Gaban-yoko spa treatment. I've never heard such a thing in my life so I was curious and at the same time super excited because I get to invite my best girlfriends for the session. Here they are below. :)

Just to show you the stuff they have at the spa. The spa is really clean and so if you're hygiene conscious do not have to worry!You will have designated cupboards for you to put your valuables. Also, you'll be given a key for you to lock the cupboard. 

It is advisable for you to remove your make up before you Gaban-yoko spa session because you will perspire alot. So here's a picture of me before I removed my my make up. You'll probably want to bring your own make up/make up remover/facial cleanser too. 

Here's us all feeling super nervous because we were told that the spa rooms would be rather warm.

Ok, so you must be wondering what's Gaban-yoko? It is like a hot stone spa and this session will help to eradicate free radicals trapped in your bod with negative ions. It's a healthy therapy and is quite popular in Japan. Now, think about the piece of bread I showed you just now. If that piece of bread can still look edible despite being left out in the spa for a year, imagine what it can do to you! :P 

All you have to do is relax and take a short nap for about 45 minutes in the therapy room but us being us, we talked, giggled and bonded during the session. Not to mention camwhore. (See images below LOL) 
The therapy room was warm, kinda like a sauna. As you can see, there are 4 beds in each room. I'm not sure whether they have private rooms for couples, you could call/email them to ask. 

Here's Farah and Kasturi trying to fan themselves during the session with the towel. Cute! 

In a nutshell, I loved the session! I really perspired alot and I feel extremely refreshed. It's great for detox, to improve your circulatory system and also the skin. Not forgetting, the sessions would also increase one's metabolic rate. I would love to return but sadly it's kind of out of way for me because I stay in the east and now that I've started working, my schedule is quite packed. However, if you're staying around Mountbatten, Bishan, you know the usual red line, I strongly recommend you to try the spa there. <3

This sounds similar to the sauna house that they have in Korea too.
