She is an inspiration, a retiree of 20 years, proved that age is not a hindering factor to become an entrepreneur again at the age of 70 !

Founder, Greta Ng, personally experienced and benefitted the healing effects of hot stone therapy whilst in Fukuokua and decided to embark on this "Wellness" business, bringing Ganbanyoku, a form of traditional and holistic healing to share with people in Singapore.

What is Ganbanyoku ?
The origin of Ganbanyoku dates back centuries. It traces back to Tamagawa natural hot springs located in the Akita Prefecture, in Japan, where people with injuries and illnesses have cured themselves by lying on the rocks heated by the natural hot springs. It has then become a popular form of holistic therapy, now also used by urbanities in Japan and all over the world.

How does it work?
It is also known as "Rock Bathing" in Japanese, using precious magma stones from Japan to heat the body from the outside in. Right from the start, Gretal was adament to use the best materials from Japan. She engaged a Ganbanyoku specialist from Japan to help her set up the spa in singapore (Gonda San from Granite Co. Ltd, based in Fukuoka)

Only Tensho Seki stones are used and the heated stones naturally release Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and negative ions to speed up the release of toxins through persipration.

These stones are embedded in the form of comfortable, smooth slab beds, which are heated 24 hours. 

A total of 16 stone beds, lockers to store your bags and belongings,

there were also shower rooms should you would like to take a shower after your session but it is advisable not to shower immediately after the Ganbanyoku session. I will share more about my experience soon !
