Ganban-Yoku Therapy and Ganban-Yoga @ Anti-Oxidant Centre + Giveaway

[Sponsored Review]

Being a mother means I have to take good care of myself, so that I can take good care of my family.

So when the nice folks from Anti-Oxidant Centre invited me to try out their Ganban-Yoku (岩盤浴) therapy and Ganban-Yoga, I thought, why not? Hoping these will help to improve my health and wellness!   

Oh, what is Ganban-Yoku therapy? 

The therapy is simply lying on ganban (hot stones) beds that release far infra-red rays and negative ions. I was told that the benefits of Ganban-Yoku therapy include anti-aging, reduce cholesterol level, improve blood circulation, relieve pain and stiffness caused by rheumatism, increase immune resistance, increase metabolic rates and weight loss.

I went for the Gankan-Yoku therapy with my close pal, who is also a full-time-working-mother. After changing into the yukata provided, we went into the therapy room. The kind staff gave each of us a bottle of alkaline water, and advised us to drink half of it before entering the room. The room temperature is between 39 to 41 degrees Celsius with the humidity at about 30%. I did not feel like suffocating which I experienced in conventional saunas! 

To full-time-working mummies like us, it was a good girls outing, and 45-minute therapy session seem to be too short for us to catch up with each other! Oops, hope we did not talk too loud and disturbed others in the next room!

There are three therapy rooms, and no worries, we girls had a female-only room. One of the rooms can be used for couples, it would be a good couple bonding time if DaDi could join me!

After the therapy, we were served enzyme drink, which is said to help our bodies digest, absorb and utilise nutrients while delivering oxygen throughout our bodies. There are ginger, lemon grass, mango, dragon fruit and hawthron flavours. Personally, I love mango flavour most!

After taking a nice shower at the well equipped bathroom, we were rejuvenated! 

On another day, I attended the Ganban-Yoga beginner class. The instructor was very nice, she helped us correct our postures and kept checking whether we were fine. She also shared with us some poses that help to ease menstrual pain. After the 45-minute lesson, we stayed in the therapy room for 15 minutes for Ganban-Yoku therapy.

There is a resting corner with magazines, so after shower, you can rest and relax there!  

Their interior is painted with anti-oxidant paint, which releases negative ions and anti-oxidants. The egg is 1-year-old and the bread is 2-year-old, and yet they are not mouldy! You may call them to ask about the sample box.
