In today's world of self-care and wellness, we are always reminded that taking a break once in a while should not be viewed as over-indulgence. In fact, investing time and effort in retreats or spa sessions are highly encouraged because they help keep the balance in our lives. A busy businesswoman — and mama — our Creative Director, Kersie Koh knows this all too well.
A couple of weeks ago, Kersie tried Ganbanyoku, a Japanese-style hot stone therapy that directly translates to 'rock bathing'. This method uses magma stones from Japan, aimed to heat the body from outside in. The stones naturally release Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and negative ions that help the body release toxins from perspiration, while helping balance out the body's natural ecosystem internally. It also strategically hits the body's acupressure points, making it helpful to get rid of nerve pains, aches, or muscles' tight knots. Cool, right? But while everything sounds pleasing on paper, we asked Kersie to spill the beans on how the actual experience was like. Here's what she has to say.
