〇 First, we check your physical condition (including pre-existing conditions), and whether you have any concerns with medication or allergies. Then we will discuss your concerns and what you need from your treatment, and will create the required program for you.
〇 Let’s have a “Japanese sake foot bath” for taking a little breather! A small amount of Japanese sake will be added to warm water to promote blood circulation and enhance relaxation. During the foot bath, please choose one of our three types of RICE FORCE treatment oil. See more details below.
※ If you are allergic to alcohol or can’t use for reason relating to religion or customs, we will prepare an alternative to Japanese sake. Please feel free to let us know.

Combining several Japanese effleurage (手掌軽擦法) and acupressure techniques (指頭圧迫法), it 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.
※ First, we massage the buttock area, backs of legs, backs of knees and ankles to improve the circulation for the whole body as well as to relieve tired legs and water retention.
※ Applying gentle yet deep pressure on key acupressure points alongside the spine to release the Ki blockage, especially effective in relieving stress and nervous tension. It also helps regulate internal organs and hormone balance.
※ Focused on massaging the meridian around the spine and lumbar/sacrial areas to regulate the Ki flow.
※ Applying a deep tissue massage technique into the trapezius (the muscle located at the base of the neck, running down to the shoulder blades) for shoulder pain.
※ Warm bean pillow mask will be placed over your eyes when you lie on your back.
※ At the front of the leg there are many meridian and acupressure points that are effective for gynecological disorders, lower back pain, stiff shoulders, headache, and energizing the body’s Ki. Also effective for tired legs from cold feet or too much walking.
※ Combining with Foot “tsubo” therapy helps to address stress-related digestive complaints or any female conditions, involving period pains, PMS, irregular menstruation or sterility.
