What exactly is Japanese traditional medicine "Waho" and what is its place in the modern world?
Japanese traditional medicine known as "Waho," has supported the health and life of Japanese people from ancient times. Making the best use of natural herbs easily sourced in Japan, Waho has been linked to the Japanese religions of Shinto and Shugendo, and has been handed down over generations. Waho is a form of medicine quite distinct from "modern medicine" and "Chinese medicine." Waho is based on natural remedies and has contributed to the longevity and health of Japanese people. It is an ancient Japanese treasure filled with the wisdom and experience of our ancestors.
What are the features of our "Waho-An Treatment"?
At "Waho-An Nature Tokyo" we draw on the two unique Japanese therapies, "Shiatsu massage" and "Wa herb," to maximize vitality and healing power.
① Japan's unique "shiastu massage"
The Waho-An Shiatsu Massage is an excellent therapeutic massage based on Japan’s world renown shiatsu techniques, and has been verified by modern medicine and researched from both anatomical and acupuncture perspectives. In addition, our practitioners have a wealth of treatment experience.
② "Wa-herbs" based on the spirit of "Shindofuji"
"Shindofuji" is a term that contains concept that there is an “indivisibility of the body and the land (because the body is made from food and food is made from the land). A simple rendering of the term Shindofuji could be “you are what you eat.” Japanese herbs, suited to a Japanese environment—soil and climate—have a long history and are gentle on our bodies and exhibit excellent effects.
