Koso Setagaya uses only rice bran for the enzyme bath, where various natural chemical reactions occur. The benefits of enzyme activities are maximized by using 100% rice bran unlike other types of enzyme baths which use sawdust or cypress wood shavings.
The rice bran enzyme bath offers the best texture and produces sustainable heat. In the old days, rice bran was used as a natural soap and a tranquilizer, and is rich in vitamins and minerals. Rice bran enzyme baths create the best environment to maximize the benefits of enzyme baths.
The enzyme bath heat is generated through fermentation. This fermentation process in our baths is done naturally without any help of additional bacteria. The heat is created only by the original bacteria in rice bran. It takes about two hours to take care of the rice bran in each tub every day. It is important to spend time and provide tender loving care to create a the best condition in the tubs.
Enzyme is "a limited resource" in every living creature.
Without enzymes, we can't digest food or move our bodies. Many of us suffer from an enzyme deficiency. Enzymes penetrate into your body through your open pores and activate the cells of your body, which slows aging, strengthens the immune system and improves natural self-healing. This will lead to the recovery of many of your health issues.
Enzyme temperatures rise to 60C-70C in an all-natural process. Rice bran has a soft and fluffy texture and the enzyme bath is completely unlike a sauna. It is a similar experience to a sand bath. Many people feel comfortable enveloped in the rice bran and fall asleep.
Just 15 minutes soaking in the radiant heat of an enzyme bath warms up your body internally. After perspiring in the bath and enhancing metabolic processes, you will be surprised to feel your smooth skin when you wash off in the shower. The enzyme bath helps you with health issues, improves your skin, aids in weight loss and slows aging. Please come and enjoy the ultimate relaxation.

Growing up, I was frail and often got sick. Because of that, there were many things I wasn't allowed to do. It got worse after I gave birth to my daughter. Then I learned about enzyme bath. It made me feel so much better and I became devoted to it. I wanted to bath in rice bran enzyme every day, and to share the experience with my mother and one-year old daughter. As a result, I decided to open my own enzyme bath spa. My body condition has improved dramatically and eight years later I was able to have another child.
Every day I spend about two hours taking care of rice bran in each tub to create good enzymes. I add some water to the rice bran and mix it with my own hands. The tubs are pretty low so it is good exercise for me!
People lose confidence when they are sick. I felt that way when I wasn't well. Illness sometimes causes problems in people's relationships with others. Illness causes problems within families. Physical health brings mental health. After gaining health, some of my customers try new things they had given up when they were sick. Your relationship with your family improves. Some people search for reasons fro explain why they got sick. Enzyme bath brings you physical health along with mental health and beauty. This eventually leads to an increase in the number of happy people.
It isn't an easy job. But it is my strong belief that people can do anything as long as they are healthy. Some of my clients have opened up their own enzyme bath spas after recovering from their illnesses and are now sharing the power of enzymes to heal more people. For me, the reward is looking at the happy faces of my clients.
Japanese rice bran enzyme will give you energy and revitalize you. The treatment will enhance your natural healing and lead you to a healthy body and a sound heart. It's not overpowering. You can sense the Japanese subtle approach in this treatment.
Japan is a fermentation "super power." People in Japan have always recognized the value of rice bran enzymes and used rice bran which otherwise would have been thrown away. You can join us to let the world know about the benefit of rice enzyme bath.
We were recognized for our special techniques in rice enzyme bath, its procedures and other holistic treatments. We have trademarked our enzyme bath experience and have developed a special training course to be a rice enzyme bath therapist. After completing our training course, you can use our "Koso labo" logo at your spas. It certifies your knowledge and proficiency in the techniques of enzyme bath. People with agricultural experience or with a knowledge of nature, who are familiar with enzyme functions, are ideal candidate to become therapists. To spread the benefit of enzyme bath to make people happy, please support enzyme bath.
