Can you tell me about Japanese Seitai Massage?
It is traditional Japanese Remedial / Therapeutic body-work treatment and literally translated as “adjust or tune up one’s body in right condition or balance”. Seitai Massage is based on “Healing technique called Kappo” from traditional martial arts schools from the Samurai era. that the masters or Samurais used to treat or heal injured people from battles or serious trainings. It is deep massage (you can always request lighter pressure), but we do not crack your bones.
We offer two different Seitai Therapeutic Massage treatments;
Hot-Stone Seitai Massage – It is deep therapeutic massage with the effective use of the infrared (heat) from the heated volcanic rocks
Seitai Massage - It is deep therapeutic massage with the effective use of hands, thumbs, or elbows

How often should I get massages?
It depends on your personal conditions and the goals you would like to achieve. However there is no question that you will experience the most health benefit from massage and other our treatments when you get regularly as these treatments are cumulative like any healthy habits.
At Arigato-Sun Clinic, some of my clients have been getting dramatic results from the first treatment but more than 86% of my clients have felt some improvements after the 6 sessions.
For general health, it is recommended 1-2treatments per months for people under light to moderate stress (those who are sedentary or exercise occasionally)
For people have high stress occupations or living conditions or trainings, minimum weekly treatment is recommended.
People in chronic pains or chronic conditions or severe & acute pains (but not requiring medical interventions) could get treatments for 1-2 times a week for a few weeks and then tapering off as needed.
Once you are feeling good, once or twice a month is recommended for maintaining that condition. Golden rule for improving or reversing chronic pains / conditions is to keep “good condition” for at least 3 months then your body starts to change.
We will sincerely advise you as if you were one of my family members or relatives, but please note that we will NEITHER Force you to make next bookings or Advice about next appointments UNLESS you ask us to talk about them.
