Resom Forest Have9 Healing Spa

Resom Forest Have9 Healing Spa
리솜 포레스트 해브나인 힐링스파

 

Resom Forest is located in the midst of the picturesque Juron Mountain scenery at 903m above sea level. It is said to be an area with great geomantic energy. The facility is famous for a number of high-class spas, but also their healing programs that include a trekking guide (healing mate) who walks and meditates with you and programs concerning forest and water themes. Resom Forest Have9 Healing Spa has over 30 detailed spa programs with nine healing themes. One of the unique customized spas is the “Sasang Constitutional Spa.” The programs, based on the medicine created by Che-ma Yi from the late Joseon Dynasty, who created four physiological types: Taeyangin, Taeumin, Soyangin and Soeumin, are divided into those same four categories. It theoretically allows the visitors' unique physical state to be determined and treats them according to their individual needs. If you register for the Sasang Constitutional Spa Zone, an expert will help to determine your type and matching baths. Each of those baths contains medicine that helps to fill those constitutional deficits. He also gives you advice on food and sports. After that it is time for tea and meditation. Also available are sauna facilities that are divided into dry and wet saunas. The terms begin every full hour and are about 50 minutes long. They cost an additional KRW 5,000.

The forest occupies 80% of the resort's area, and is filled with primeval energy. In a place like this you don't want to miss out on the open-air spa. The best view is from the “Infinity Spa.” You can fully enjoy your hot bath surrounded by the sight of Jurong Mountain. Furthermore, there is a cold bath, an aroma bath, a Hinoki bath, and a number of event spas, which makes it fun to switch from theme to theme. Another source of pride are the six “Private Stone Spas.” They are huge cut-out stones that function as bathtubs. Placed in edgy locations, they offer an unforgettable view and an exciting spa experience.

Healing program in the midst of nature

The eco healing program begins with a “walk to heal your body and soul.” Along the path, which is full of pythoncide, you pass a colony of pine trees that are losing their bark. They are wounds that people are responsible for, because they wanted to collect the trees' resin. Pine trees usually regenerate from such wounds, but in this case people had gotten greedy and didn't give the trees enough time. They wanted more of the liquid and gave the trees wounds that they can't recover from. Looking at these beautiful pine trees, wounded by man, makes you stop and meditate. A meaningful moment where a man and a tree acknowledged their wounds. Then you lay on your back and stare into the sky, another way of meditation. You can even go to the “Meteor Cafe,” looked over the forests of Jecheon and write a letter to yourself. Another meaningful moment where you can confront yourself. In front of the Meteor Cafe is a stage called “Meteor Field” where every now and then a concert takes place. In the afternoon, there is a mind healing program that focuses on observing, and in the evening there is a starlight healing program that involves walking in the moon- and starlight. The healing programs cost KRW 20,000 each.

What is Sasang physiology?

In traditional Korean medicine it is said that everybody is born with a certain physiology or physical constitution. There are largely four types that need individual health care methods and ways of life. The theory about this is called Sasang physiology. The four types are Soeumin, Taeumin, Soyangin and Taeyangin, which can be recognized by body shape, facial features, speech patterns, and characteristics.
