RICE FORCE at five-star spas

The RICE FORCE cosmetic brand has been developing products in Japan since 2000, inspired by the natural healing powers of rice with respect to ancient spiritual traditions. Currently it is used in 42 countries worldwide.

RICE FORCE is becoming increasingly recognised as a worldwide spa brand. It is used in many top spas, including the Moana Lani Spa – ranked as both one of the best spas in Hawaii and among the top hundred spas in America – and a five-star resort hotel in Thailand, the Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa. 

Rikyu is the sole RICE FORCE partner salon in the UK since we began our collaboration in 2015, and we have developed an original treatment menu exclusively for the salon! We are now offering our “RICE FORCE Massage”. This is a massage treatment that replenishes energy to the mind and body while clearing the soul. Our unique approach, based on Japanese aromatherapy and Japanese massage therapy, combines various traditional techniques originating from ancient Japan.



About RICE FORCE Massage


Combining several Japanese effleurage (手掌軽擦法) and acupressure (指頭圧迫法) techniques, the treatment helps to promote blood circulation and energy flow. Our Japanese RICE FORCE Massage therapy is excellent for activating the body’s self-healing powers and restoring a feeling of well-being to both the spirit and mind, as well as achieving relief from muscle pains.

About RICE FORCE Japanese aromatic treatment oil

Blending beautiful natural Japanese essential oils such as Yuzu and Japanese red cedar, the aromatic energy of this oil resonates beyond the physical level, giving deep replenishment to the spirit and soul. We have three aromatic blends to adjust the excess and deficient ‘Ki’ and allow it to flow freely.

As RICE FORCE's official certified trainer, Emi trains therapists around the world.

Rikyu’s owner-therapist Emi has been intimately involved in the development of the RICE FORCE spa menu. She is now also a RICE FORCE official trainer, providing technical guidance to therapists at spas around the world, including Thailand, Germany, Czech Republic etc.

Emi believes that a high quality massage arises from the “synergy” between the therapist and the client. Based on this belief, RICE FORCE massage is a simple yet deep approach, utilising the therapist’s own sensitivity to the heart and soul of the client.

Emi has also trained Rikyu’s therapists Rika and Haruka directly, and she is constantly working on improving both her and their technical capabilities and services.
Please enjoy a blissful time with us, deep-healing your mind and body with the fusion of traditional Japanese massage techniques and aromatherapy in our RICE FORCE massage!

We are looking forward to seeing you at Rikyu!
