Korean Jjimjilbang

Korean Jjimjilbang is a traditional way of health and leisure in Korea, and is often considered as a form of energy hyperthermia. Originating in the Korean court, Jjimjilbang has a long history in Korean culture and is popular for its relaxing and health benefits.

Temperatures in Jjimjilbang rooms are maintained between 38 °C to 42 °C where people can sit or lie on heated mineral stones. Such minerals have been shown to help symptoms associated with muscle and joint pain, the common cold, improving blood circulation, and more. When these mineral stones are heated, energy is quickly released in the form of far infrared rays and negative ions. This provides energy to the human body and increases cellular activity, blood circulation and metabolism. Additional health benefits include eliminating toxins, regulating pH levels, and supplementing nutrients.

The benefit of Korean Jjimjilbang:

1.  Improving microvessel circulation: Jjimjilbang promotes the movement of independent water molecules between cells which can in turn provide energy in the form of heat through resonance. The heat allows for a slight rise in the temperature of the deep subcutaneous layer, which accelerates blood flow and results in capillary dilation. The more capillaries expand, the less pressure the heart will have to exert. This, in combination with the movement of water molecules can help increase the body’s oxygen content to achieve amazing health care benefits for rheumatism and arthritis.

2.  Weight loss and detoxification: Jjimjilbang rooms are maintained between 38 °C to 42 °C, allowing for excess water, salt molecules and subcutaneous fat in the body to be excreted through sweat. Metabolic wastes are also rapidly discharged from the body reducing the burden on the liver and kidneys. In addition, the water solubility of fat is increased at around 40 °C thereby further encouraging fat loss and weight reduction.

3. Jjimjilbang sessions are typically 50 minutes, and during this time, the amount of sweating that occurs is equivalent to a 10 kilometre run.

Sweat discharged during Jjimjilbang is not odorous or sticky. We recommend that you do not bathe after treatment. Instead, wipe off with a towel as sweat from Jjimjilbang can be used as a natural emulsion to help promote smooth and beautiful skin.
