Iyashi Bedrock Spa

Hot Shopping: Rock Your Body at Iyashi Bedrock Spa

An innovative new way to gain rest and rejuvenation has come to Toronto in the form of Iyashi Bedrock Spa, the first Japanese ganbanyoku spa in North America. The unique facility promotes rock bathing—spa guests lie on body-sized heated slabs of imported black silica, which release far infrared rays and negative ions to help detoxify the body. The 60-minute treatment ($47.50 to $59.50) relieves aches and pains and promotes an overall feeling of healthfulness. The spa also offers hot yin yoga classes—on heated stone beds, of course—and registered massage therapists offer appointments individually, or before or after a rock session.
