The Rifure Therapy Room
The Rifure Therapy Room provides your personal oasis by the tranquil waters and serene green banks of the Jinzu “Path of the Gods” River. In this private space, you can soak yourself in an open air bath before relaxing with aromatic therapy, or our unique Gakanraku traditional herbal massage, or our Ayurvedic spiritual massage. Our deep healing methods using all natural ingredients will help you forget the cares of everyday life while you enter a calm and blissful space “away from it all” during your Garaku holiday.
Private Open Air Bath
The treatment room has its own private open air bath. Please immerse yourself in this luxurious bath of natural spring waters and enjoy the river and green forests outside.
Surrounding you in natural colors, lush wood grains, and soothing music, the peaceful atmosphere of the treatment room is the perfect place to feel totally relaxed and ready for the massage treatment of your choice.
Aromatic Treatment and Massage
We use only 100% natural essential oils extracted from exotic plants. These aromatic oils leave your mind and body healthier and their fragrant scents sooth your senses. You will feel deeply relaxed, both mentally and physically.
Gakanraku Japanese and Chinese Herbal Massage
In this treatment, Kampo (Japanese and Chinese medicine) oil is used to improve your natural healing ability and harmonize the three key elements of your body: your qi or your life force, your blood, which is a function of your blood nutrients, and “water”, the non blood liquids circulating in your body. The Gakanraku treatment is specially formulated to release stiffness in the body.
In this treatment, warm sesame oil is poured slowly onto the center of your forehead, a key chakra or energy point. This induces a sense of meditation. This is followed with a soothing head massage, which will not only relax you but leave you mentally and physically rejuvenated.
Other treatment courses, such as reflexology treatment for the area below the knees, and a treatment course for men, are also offered. These additional treatments do not include time in the open air bath.
Before any treatment we will check your physical constitution and condition. Please let us know if you have any specific concerns.
Open from 10:00 am
