Sand Sensations

May 09, 2016
The One Sand Bath Therapy
Feeling stressed out? There’s no need to book a Koh Samui beach break as now seductive sand can come to you. A new healing Bangkok spa concept promises to bliss you out with the best of bathing and sand treatments, inspired by on-trend Japanese onsen.

The One Sand Bath Therapy, available at The One Residence, will immerse you in a soothing tub filled with red-hued volcanic Japanese sand, which boasts larger-than-average grains and is chokka with essential vitamin and mineral content. This relaxing but super-hot experience promises to improve your immune system, detoxify your body, relieve muscle pain, clear skin and boost circulation, and is the equivalent of an hour of exercise (so that’s you off the hook for a morning jog!).

A one-hour session includes a 15-minute sand bath, followed by a scrub and shower, and starts from B1,500 (soft opening rate) or B2,500 (regular price). Lie back, place your head on the pillow and drift off… Be prepared to sweat, though – the tub’s temperature is around 55 degrees Celsius, so will get your heart racing (the therapist will check your pulse beforehand to ensure you can handle the heat).

Aromatherapy and massage are also up for grabs (both B800 for an hour). This sandy sizzler is one wave in a tide of onsen-style treatments sweeping Bangkok. It seems, when it comes to spa indulgence, we’re all turning Japanese…
