Japanese Seitai-style Dry Hot-Stone Therapeutic Massage
温石薬石整体 (Onjyaku Yakuseki Seitai)
This traditional method of Seitai-Style Dry Hot-Stone Massage is a very unique treatment which has originated from one of the most ancient oriental treatments. The evidence of this ancient treatment was found in Japanese historic ruins from more than 1200 years ago.
Master Okumura Sensei has developed, arranged and modernized this traditional method after the long years of his clinical experiences. His Stone Therapy Academy Headquarter is located in Tokyo’s most exclusive and prestigious area called “Omotesando表参道” and Okumura Sensei has been a very popular therapist amongst many celebrities in the region for many years. It is a very distinctive and exclusive treatment in Japan within the massage industry and Okumura Sensei was broadcasted several times on TV. There are more than 60 treatment salons across Japan and Arigato-Sun Clinic is the first and only one authorised clinic in Australia to introduce this treatment.
The therapist uses the natural volcanic rocks (imported from Japan) which are heated upto 98℃, then applied with comfortable pressure on the Shiatsu pressure points and other tight areas. Its warm comfortable pressure feels as if you are in an “Onsen (Hot Spring)” and your body surrends to pure relaxation.
The natural infrared from the natural volcanic rocks warms and penetrates deeply into your body, which makes your body feel very relaxed. The pure relaxation from this treatment induces very good circulation of the blood, the body fluid and the flow of the Ki energy within the entire body. It also has a positive effect on the parasympathetic nerve system which optimises your self-healing activities.
We have heard happy positive feedbacks from clients that “it feels like as if he/she is in the Onsen (hot spring) with the clothes on”. Others have said “this massage is Stone Magic!!”
