A holistic salon where you can be relaxed|Kantama

【Report by the foreigner who knows Ayabe well.】

Name of facility : Kantama (health clinic) Visit date : 2020/10/25 Visitor name : Nathaniel Hoy

Outside Kantama


Kantama is located roughly 45 minutes from Ayabe Station.

Kantama is a unique health clinic that offers two different ways to detoxify your body.

When I visited, I was able to try both.


Explaining the day's activities


The first requires you to change into a heavy muumuu like dress that covers you from your neck to blow your feet.

Once changed you then sit over a stove with a collection of herbs boiling underneath you.

With only a small opening to allow airflow the heat builds up and helps you sweat toxins out.

Due to anatomy and the way the seat is shaped this can be a little uncomfortable for men.


The seat and stove you sit on


The second part is a rice-bran enzyme bath which works better the more you sweat.

Part one does improve the detox ability of the rice-bran bath.

Similar to a sand bath you are instead buried in rice-bran which has been heated to help you release toxins by sweating.

This was quite relaxing and really did make me perspire quite a lot.


Buried in the rice-bran


After the rice-bran bath you will be completely covered in dried rice-bran.

A shower room is located in the same room so you can freshen up.

I would definitely like to try the rice-bran bath again.

Both male and female staff are available to make the experience

as pleasant as possible.
