About the Characteristics of SEIYOIN

SEIYOIN is the oldest fasting therapy institute in Japan, started in 1918, so it will be 100 years old.
SEIYOIN is located in the middle of Ikoma Mountain in Nara prefecture.
The height is 400m.
Hozanji Temple is located in Ikoma Mountain, sacred place for its religious austerities.
The location and the view is really great and you can see the whole Yamato Plain from SEIYOIN.
So this is suitable place for fasting and harmonizing with nature.

Fasting sometimes seems like asceticism and religious, but fasting therapy is totally different from the fasting for religious austerities.
In SEIYOIN, we are studying and guiding fasting from the point of view as ‘treatment’.
It is not like strict austerity or other religious training.
You don’t need any mental or physical stress.
You can just keep your environment for doing nothing here.
Then you can release your stress and recover your natural healing power which stored in yourself.
The method that we supply to you is quite simple and rebound will not be occurred because of this natural way.
