I was born in 1978 and raised in Takarazuka, Japan.
I was a rather weak, sickly child and often hospitalized from sickness…
My grandmother suggested my parents to take me fishing so I could get more sun light and sea breeze in order to strengthen my body. I I started fishing fearfully, but became interested while going to fising. Surprisingly my body started to change after 6 months of going fishing and got well and strong.
I was not good at sports during my school days, so my interested was into motorcycles and cars. At the age of 16, I got a motorcycle licence and started to ride it every weekend. I started weight training and studied hard to get better scores in schools (my parents confiscated the key for my motor cycle key if I get worse scores in exams....) I was purely falling love with my motorcycle.
I started Aikido (Japanese Martial Art) at Tenshin Dojo (formerly owned by Steven Seagal Shihan) before coming to Australia. My interest was shifted to Aikido and I spend too much time in Aikido Dojo to go to the university, so I could just manage to pass exams and graduate university eventually.
I started to work as an education consultant after graduating Griffith University. I realised that I didn’t enjoy desk works too much and would prefer more physical jobs.
At the age of 28, I decided to become massage therapist. It was very hard for me to work as fulltime and study at the same time.
Once I obtain my first massage qualification in Australia, I decided to go back to Japan for pursuing Japanese traditional massage techniques and another passion of Aikido in 2008. I studied at schools and seminars to learn various Seitai massage techniques and Thermal treatments in Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Shizuoka and Tokyo.
I have worked in a several different massage clinics in Japan & Australia since 2007 and learnt a variety of Japanese Seitai Massage techniques and Thermo-Therapeutic treatments from my Senseis and seniors.
I cannot thank you enough for kindness from my Senseis and seniors from my previous clinics I have worked.
I have started Arigato-Sun Clinic with the smallest room in my house and this small massage stall at Rocklea Weekend Market (Brisbane Market Place) in April 2014.
Finally, our brand new clinic has completed in May 2016. We sincerely hope you enjoy our specialised Japanese Thermo-Therapeutic treatments and Omotenashi customer service at our new clinic.
My concept of Japanese Thermo-Therapeutics which is new treatment style to Australia and it may take time to be accepted, but I am ready to be patient and continue to work hard, because I am very confident that my Japanese Thermo-Therapeutic treatments will approach differently and give better results compared to other natural treatments in Australia.
In spite of being only one Japanese Thermo-Therapeutic specialist in Australia, I strongly believe that there is no end to learning, as I am constantly learning and seeking new techniques or treatments to improve satisfactions from my clientele. I think it would be a great honor to contribute Australian society with my own county's tradition and it is one of my missions to become a bridge between Australia and Japan in the area of the Thermo-Therapeutic Treatments
