Would you care to be wrapped up in cloth, like a newborn baby being swaddled, and be willing to stay in that position for at least 20 minutes? Maybe, if the practice helps you to get rid of your aches and pains, help improve your posture and alleviate stiffness?
This is what the Japanese therapeutic method called Otonamaki, which means ‘adult wrapping’ promises to do, reports BBC News website.
When it comes to babies being wrapped, the Japanese term is Ohinamaki, and the idea for ‘Otonamaki’ was derived from that.
Kyoko Proportion is one of several Japanese companies that promote Otonamaki for its health benefits. Customers have been generally positive.
