Iyashi Bedrock Spa in Toronto
Start your summer off right and prep your body with a relaxing detox. Iyashi Bedrock Spa, located in Uptown Toronto in the Yonge and Eglinton area, is a rock bathing spa and is the first of its kind in North America.
They offer rock bathing sessions which involve lying down on heated slabs of black silica stones which are heated from below with hot water. It is said to help rid the body of its toxins through sweating as well as burning 700 to 1,500 calories in a one hour treatment. The black silica rocks give off negative ions and Far Infrared Rays which promote sweating and detoxification.
Patrons can choose to sweat it out in a single rock bathing session or they can combine it with an hour of Yin Yoga. Sessions start with a thirty minute block of relaxing rock bathing where you begin the detox process in a tropically humid room. Step out in to the cooling room every once in a while for a glass of water or green tea to stay hydrated and for a quick cool-down.
The remaining hour will continue with Yin Yoga, which is beginner friendly and oh so good for taking the edge off of a hectic work week. You’ll spend the rest of your day in a warm and cozy place of Zen.
