Treatment provided in Gen in-room Spa is based on Esalen® Massage developed by the Esalen Institute established in 1962 in the state of California, USA and is known for its research on spiritual environment. Esalen® Massage is a meditative oil treatment that integrates “the mind, body, and the soul,” and quietly affects the entire body through your natural inner rhythm –the rhythm of the waves–.
The long strokes like the waves that come and go. Your body will be led to a deep state of relaxation as your breathing deepens and muscles relax. Through gentle and appropriate level of pressure, you will approach a half-awake state similar to sleep induction. The stretches and deep work are performed with deep breathing while your body is in a state of relaxation, and does not cause a sense of intrusion. The awareness that tends to be directed outwards in daily life will naturally be directed inwards, and your consciousness, with deeper sensitivity, will help free yourself internally from stress. In the US, Esalen® Massage is known as the “ultimate relaxation massage” with excellent reputation as a treatment that encourages awareness of the mind and body through its one-and-only techniques.

Facial skin treatment
Facial skin treatment at Gen spa uses clay –gift from the earth– instead of oil.
Special clay from the American deserts is rich in mineral with strong anti-bacterial properties, making it perfect for treating the bare skin. Ion exchange properties of clay will adsorb and remove impurities, excess oil, and heavy metal. Far infrared ray effect will enhance metabolism. After the luxurious clay mask treatment for the entire face, we will move your face muscles with gentle touches and further enhance blood circulation and lymphatic flow, while toning your skin with creme that is effective for anti-aging. During the clay mask, we will treat sore areas such as lower back or shoulder area. Please let us know if you have requests. The treatment is also recommended for skin troubled with heat rash and/or acne.
*The course does not include pre-treatment facial cleansing. In order to rid the skin of excess oil before the treatment, please wait with your face washed and then moisturized with toner. Please avoid using cremes until after the treatment.
*The entire procedure will be completed within the guest rooms.
