Our consultants favorite's massage therapy

Shiatsu Namikoshi manual therapy + Sonopuncture

This Japanese-style treatment with acupressure (palms and fingers) works on vital energy points to unblock and balance the body’s chi. It stimulates circulation and acts on all the systems in the body. Long sessions often include reflexology & chiropractic/osteopathy, with sonopuncture: acupressure with special  Japanese tuning forks designed for medical purposes.

How often to receive a shiatsu massage therapy ?

We recommend receiving a Shiatsu treatment every 2 months for prevention and maintaining the body in good health. At least 4 times a year, before the season change.

Some people need to come on a regular basis to complete the treatment. In that case, we will do 1H treatments, instead of 1h45. Coming regularly will also avoid seasonal depression and fatigue, support your organ functioning, balance, and reinforce the whole system of the body.

If your muscular tensions are recurrent or too important, combined with other physical health issues, it may be necessary to consider having a bundle of sessions. Amount one of them, we will have a kinesiology session to seek for the emotional cause, release the pain durably, and reeducate the body.

What to expect after a Tokyo Shiatsu massage therapy ?

Right after a Shiatsu or a massage, you will feel relaxed, more flexible, and leave with a clear mind. If you consulted for fatigue, sleep or digestive issues, circulation… you will notice some improvement in the following days. If not, another consultation will be needed.

Some people who experience a deep touch full body massage or shiatsu for the first time may feel some discomfort on the following days. This is normal and it will disappear soon: the body regains its capacity for self-healing.  All the pains kept quiet for years are released. All the areas where the energy flow was blocked are “woken up” and inflate very slightly, causing a small painless compression in most areas of the body.  In narrower parts such as the base of the neck, shoulder blades, or along the spine, this can press on areas of nerve impulses and can cause pain. It is a well-known process in Asia, called “the healing crisis”:  it generally takes a few days for the body to recover its new balance.

When that happens, it only lasts a few days. Then you will feel very light! Coming to the session hydrated, drinking a lot of water after, and following your therapist’s personalized nutritional advice will help support the cleansing process.

What should you wear to receive a shiatsu massage therapy?

Shiatsu massage is clothed. Unless we need to work on the deep tissue, for a slimming massage, and do some osteopathic manipulation in which removing close is necessary.

Wearing stretchy cotton trousers or other soft fabrics is recommended, and a comfortable tee-shirt.

Essential oils, natural organic oils, or plant oil macerations from our own production can be used. Some of them contain natural color pigments. In case, do not wear your favorite white shirt, or bring a change.

Some people prefer bringing their own small towel to be used for the face and skull area.


We provide essential oil products at the clinic!

I always advise you some natural balms, plant extract, essential oils, and nutrition based on the 5 elements and traditional Japanese medicine for supporting your treatment.
