After the doctor diagnosed user's body conditions a program would be drawn up. Apart from bathing, a health equipment which improved the immunity by temperature management, through the doing of yoga, Zen meditations, strolling in the garden, and experiencing ceramic arts etc. in the near by Buddhist temple and the uninhabited island the Oomurawan, one's physical condition would be encouraged to improve.
