Are you a woman who is tired of the standard beauty treatments offered at a traditional esthetics salon? You wish there were a customized therapy based on your body or face condition and personal needs? Then you should go and book a session with Chika-san.

Before creating her own small therapy room in Takanawa, she studied and gained experience in New York and worked at some luxury spas in the city of Tokyo. But in the end she’s always wanted to give women more than just a standard treatment from the spa’s menu. Chika-san says, “Every single person is different and has specific needs. I want to listen to these needs and address them in my therapy to make women not only look beautiful, but to make them feel beautiful, too.”

formachika Beauty Therapy Chika concentrates on facial and massage therapy. Her anti-aging facial treatments include cleansing, exfoliation, as well as a special anti-aging massage and electroporation therapy, the latter being a specific stimulation to increase the permeability of the skin in order to enhance its renewal process. Moreover, she’s been very successful in dealing with different kinds of skin irritations like facial redness or acne. She’s an expert in customizing the treatments to match various skin types of women of all ages, even up to 90 years old! She’s also one of the very few estheticians in Tokyo who offer a classic European facial including deep pore cleansing. A session usually lasts 90 minutes and includes elements of acupressure and parasympathetic massage, which is the perfect combination to unwind and relax completely.

When it comes to massage therapy, Chika-san is trained to provide traditional treatments like Shiatsu, Swedish Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Manual Lymph Drainage and the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage. However, she’s also got expert knowledge of how to stimulate the body’s natural repair functions, by using massage techniques and acupressure that lead to the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. Her massage therapy is based on the fact that the human body is a finely tuned mechanism where the interaction of organs, glands and tissue plays an important role to live a healthy life. Chika-san therefore also offers some techniques of visceral manipulation, which is a gentle technique to improve tissue movement and mobility of the organs inside the body. Overall, also the massage therapy is fully customized in order to release any tension, to support the body's natural functions to get rid of any toxins and finally to make you feel relaxed and beautiful from inside out.

For those interested in other specific natural healing methods, Chika-san has a strong background in ACIM, Reiki and the ancient Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono, too.

Before any treatment begins, Chika-san sits down with her customers to learn a little bit more about their general well-being and any issues women might have regarding their body or face. Her international education and years of experience with customers from various countries make Chika-san a perfect match for both Japanese and non-Japanese women. She speaks very good English, is confidential and she really cares about the individual's needs. Your body and your soul will thank you for that, and ask for more.
