The Japanese Bath
The Secret for Total Well-Being
The Japanese love soaking in baths every day. Showers alone do not relax and warm the body enough, whereas tub baths purify the body both physically and mentally. Warming the body improves blood circulation that results in flushed and glowing skin.
The daily Japanese bathing ritual first requires purifying the body outside of the tub, usually by showering or sitting on a wooden stool and scrubbing the body, followed by a thorough rinse.Then you enter a hot tub or “o-furo” for a luxiurous soak that restores the balance of body, mind and spirit.
