South Bay spa goers can get a taste of Japan in their own neighborhood at the brand new spaRelaken at the Miyako Hybrid Hotel in Torrance.

The spa company’s first U.S. location, it is also the first in the country to feature the SGE ganban-yoku (or “bedrock bath”) treatment — a specialty of Japanese bathing culture that involves lying on a large bed of ore mined from the mountains of Kyushu, Japan, known as “Super Growth Energy” stone. Guests recline on one of the spa’s eight stone beds, which are placed low to the ground and located in a sauna-like steam room. When heated, the stones emit infrared rays as well as negative ions, which help heat the body, restore cells and encourage beneficial detoxification through perspiration. The overall effect is one of refreshment and relaxation, as well as improved circulation and metabolism — a sense of healing from the inside out. 21381 Western Avenue in Torrance. Make an appointment at 310.212.6408, or visit rirakuen.com.
