Jinan Red Ginseng Spa

Jinan Red Ginseng Spa
진안 홍삼스파


Red Ginseng Spa offers a special traditional Korean medicine therapy program using ginseng, a local product of Jinan. The spa is largely devided into the “Taegeuk Zone,” the yin and yang “Therapy Zone” and the “Aqua Zone,” where visitors can enjoy an open- air bath while admiring Maisan Mountain. The most popular program is the “Red Ginseng Bubble Sense Therapy.” Up to 50 people can join in at the same time. They sit on a round, hot bed as colorful lights start to beam. Soon, bubbles begin to rise high enough to cover the whole body. Use the dense ginseng fragrant foam for a massage and the skin will discharge toxins and dead skin. It is said to promote metabolism and has an improvement effect on blood circulation. Effectiveness is great, but above all it is just a lot of fun. After bathing in bubbles for about 10 minutes, the ceiling releases a rinsing rain shower.

Interpreting Yin and Yang and the five elements of the universe in the spa

The Yin and Yang program consists of an indoor spa and wind therapy. The indoor spa is equipped with water jets, air bubbles, neck showers, and massage rings for a variety of water movements, as well as a bathing pool to fully enjoy the yin energy, and “Sound Floating,” which uses sounds to reenact the feeling of an embryo floating in amniotic fluid during pregnancy. Visitors enter a dark and quiet pool, put tubes around their necks and legs and float on the water surface. When they tilt their necks back and water covers their ears they will be able to hear the melodies of classical music. It's a dreamy and surreal moment. The last stage of the Yin and Yang program is wind therapy, where hot and cold winds are used to dry the wet body.

The Five Elements program, which is composed of water, gold, wood, fire and earth, is also refined and of high quality. “Water” offers aromatherapy including different baths with red ginseng extracts. “Wood” is a herb therapy where you lie in a tub filled with cypress sawdust and wormwood from the Maisan forests. It is great to take a nap. “Gold” is a stone therapy where visitors can take a break and lie on hot gravel. “Fire” is a harmony therapy that uses red ginseng mud face packs during a wet sauna on heat sheets made of stone. When the pack has dried, a misty rain is activated followed by a strong rain shower. “Earth” is a thermal therapy in a yellow clay spa where germanium beds offer far- infrared rays.

After the Five Elements program it is time for the outdoor aqua zone, which is the highlight of Red Ginseng Spa. Under a blue sky you have a great view of the “horse ears” of Maisan Mountain, a sight you will remember for a long time.

Enjoying Red Ginseng Spa with safety first

Since it is a health-promoting spa, the Red Ginseng Spa is created for grown-ups. The water in the baths are too deep for children to play freely. They need parental guidance. Also note that the Bubble Sense therapy is a foam spa and the floor is very slippery. Senior citizens must be especially careful
