Think you’ve encountered some unusual spa treatments in Bangkok? Foot-nibbling fish, a facial with snail slime. Well you can now experience being buried in a bath beneath volcanic sand for up to 20 minutes.
The One Sand Bath Therapy, is a newly opened spa that offers Japanese hot sand onsen. The sand baths are an interesting way to enjoy the benefits of the heat and minerals associated with a hot soak in a hot spring, without having to get your feet wet.
Prices at The One Sand Bath Therapy start from ฿2,500 for a 1 hour hot sand onsen session. This includes a 15 minute sand bath followed by a shower after. (Promotion: ฿1,500 for a 1 hour hot sand bath, until further notice)
The baths are not only soothing and highly therapeutic, they have health benefits too. The bath’s default temperature is 55 Degrees Celsius, the heat from the sand causes the body to sweat out toxins by increasing blood circulation. It is also said to aid in weight loss and hold off ageing.
It is advised not to spend longer than 20 minutes in the sand bath.
The One Sand Bath Therapy also offers Thai massage (from ฿500 for 1 hour) and aromatherapy (from ฿800 for 1 hour).
The main benefits of sand bath therapy is to detoxify, pain relief, and increase blood circulation in body. The heat from the sand is over 55 Celsius which causes the body to sweat out toxins by increasing blood circulations. Nowadays, people eat a lot of junk food and medicine which forms chemical toxin in our body. By using sand bath you can detox all chemicals in the body. The increase in blood circulation will decrease lactic acid in your body and will result in pain reliefs. Unlike typical massage this decrease in lactic acid would make your body much comfortable.
