This type of bath features hot water that falls from a high location, relieving muscle pain through pressure and warmth. Try standing, sitting, or covering the affected area with a towel to find the water pressure that's ideal for you. If there's enough space, laying down and allowing the water to hit your lower back is also beneficial.
- Five minutes per body part, for a total of about fifteen minutes, is ideal.
- If the waterfall is too strong or you spend too long in it, you might experience increased stiffness. And depending on the type and cause of the pain, it might grow worse when exposed to the utase-yu. If so, stop using the bath immediately.
