Jeonnam Area Environmental Disease Prevention and Control Center
전남권 환경성질환 예방관리센터

Healing begins as you enter Ungchi-myeon located below the Jeamsan Recreational Forest where the Jeonnam Area Environmental Disease Prevention and Control Center is located. Embraced by the Jeamsan Recreational Forest at the end of the beautiful village road, the place feels different from its stiff name. Names like forest playground, healing spot or feeling easy place suits the place better.

The answer to environment-induced diseases

The Jeonnam Area Environmental Disease Prevention and Control Center (hereinafter Center) defines environmental diseases and trains and suggests methods to prevent and treat diseases. The center is ideally situated at the mecca of green tea that shows excellent effects to ease environmental diseases. Green tea, other than removing accumulated heavy metal and environmental hormones inside the body, has other various functions. Drink it to increase the alpha wave in the brain with the theanine ingredient to ease the mind and increase the ability to concentrate. Catechin is included in large quantity to activate the antioxidant system inside the body. Green tea also helps sterilize the intestines and mouth to prevent cavity and food poisoning and suppress the secretion of sebum and soothe inflammatory skin diseases.

The center focuses on wellness programs using green tea. Operated programs include tea steam meditation, cooking with green tea and cypress green tea pot making and green tea foot bath, and green tea pool are prepared for all visitors to enjoy. The green tea foot bath is located at the small garden behind the building. The outdoor space is perfect for admiring the surrounding landscape and enjoying a foot bath. Contain warm water in the pottery foot bath device and add green tea bags. Step on the green tea bags with the feet to rew the green tea and double the effects. Use time is 20 minutes. Drink green tea during use and moisturize by applying aroma oil to the feet after the foot bath. The green tea pool next to the foot bath in an indoor space has the aroma of a deep green tea fragrance. It is a place where you can soak the body in a dark brew of green tea. Normally the men’s pool and women’s pool are separated but family visitors can enter without separation. Guests enter wearing a sauna uniform and seven or more guests can reserve the place.

Tea steam meditation is conducted at the healing meditation room that finished the walls and floor with cypress. Green tea is poured into a large pottery and the face is lowered to breathe in the warmth of green tea. Participants cover their face with a large towel to prevent the warmth from escaping. After an hour of tea steam meditation, the respiratory system is cleansed and the coldness inside the body is discharged. While breathing, serotonin is secreted to help comfort the mind and relieve stress. The program requires six or more applicants and reservation is required.
