What is Hinoki Onsen?
Hinoki Onsen, also known as Japanese Cypress Onsen, is an ancient therapeutic practice in which hinoki wood oil is released into hot water, creating a unique spa experience. This type of bath has been used in Japan since the Edo period and has been praised for its numerous health benefits. Hinoki wood oil produces mineral-rich steam that helps to detoxify the body while also providing a calming and soothing effect.
The combination of hot water and hinoki wood oil helps to relax muscles and relieve stress, as well as promote healthier skin and improve overall circulation. At Ikeda Spa, guests can enjoy a traditional Hinoki Onsen within their bathing facilities, allowing them to truly immerse themselves in the healing and rejuvenating powers of this ancient practice.
After your Hinoki Onsen treatment, make sure you spend some time relaxing in our outdoor garden area surrounded by lush greenery or unwind in one of our teahouses located within the garden grounds. Our experienced staff are always available to answer any questions you may have about our Hinoki Onsen treatments or any other services we provide. Make sure to take time out of your day to give yourself some much needed self care and treat yourself to this special experience at Ikeda Spa.
The Benefits of a Hinoki Bath
The Hinoki Onsen at Ikeda Spa Singapore is an extraordinary experience that allows you to relax and rejuvenate your body and mind. When exposed to hot water, the hinoki wood produces natural oils which contain minerals and essential oils such as Thiol. These oils are highly therapeutic and are used as raw materials for soaps, antiseptics, perfumes, cosmetics, and even hair restoration treatments. Moreover, hinoki wood oil is gentle on the skin and does not cause skin irritations like some other evergreens. It is traditionally used to treat skin irritations and injuries due to its antibacterial and antifungal action. Inhalation of the hinoki wood oil can also help decongest the respiratory system and cure asthma and other nervous system ailments. For this reason, hinoki wood oil is widely used in aromatherapy to reduce stress.
How to Enjoy a Hinoki Bath
For those looking to enjoy a luxurious, relaxing experience, nothing beats the rejuvenating power of a Hinoki onsen. With their natural antibacterial properties and ability to resist mold, Hinoki baths are a great way to relax, refresh, and soothe your body.
Before getting into the bath, it’s important to make sure that you’re properly prepared. To ensure that you have the best experience possible, make sure to shower first and avoid using any soap or shampoo while doing so. Also, it is important to keep the tub clean by not introducing any external elements or contaminants. Additionally, make sure to take off any jewelry or accessories before getting in to prevent staining of the wood.
Once you’re ready to enter the bath, you can enjoy the calming temperature of the water. It is important to take it easy and not stay in for too long; about 10-15 minutes is the norm. If you start feeling light-headed, it’s best to get out of the bath and cool down with cold water before getting back in. Staying hydrated is key, so remember to replenish your system once you get out; there will be a water dispenser in the onsen room for this purpose.
At Ikeda Spa, we strive to provide the ultimate in relaxation experiences. A Hinoki onsen bath is one of the most luxurious and soothing activities we have to offer. So if you’re looking for a way to relax and rejuvenate, come visit us at Ikeda Spa and enjoy a traditional Japanese Hinoki bath.
