Notice of business name change

Nature Daikanyama changed its name to Waho-An Nature Tokyo from October 1.

Waho (和方)-traditional Japanese medicine and therapies
An (庵)-best translated as “a retreat” but sometimes refers to a temple or monastery.
Nature-we retain this from our old name Nature Daikanyama and it represents the natural remedies and Japanese services that we offer.
 
Waho refers to traditional Japanese medicine and therapies, in the same way that Kanpo refers to traditional Chinese medicine, and Ranpo refers to traditional Dutch medicine (Wa–Japanese, Ka–Chinese, Ra–Dutch). Through traditional Waho, our vision is to provide people from overseas with a deeper more nuanced understanding of Japan and enable them to see wonderful new dimensions of Japan that are often relatively unknown. In turn, we look forward to making people physically and internally healthy through Waho. The traditional Japanese healing methods, Waho, that we offer include Shiatsu massage and Japanese herbs. We offer all-natural remedies and techniques drawn from the wisdom and experience gained through hundreds of years of ancient Japanese medical practice. The Japanese practitioners developed their medical knowledge independently from the influence of Western medicine.
 
Shiatsu massage improves blood flow and makes it easier to carry oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Shiatsu promotes self-renewal and at the same time raises body temperature. In addition, it helps to develop the body’s immune system. Relying on Shiatsu can enhance the natural healing power of the body.
Japanese herbs are enduring natural remedies that have widely supported the lives and health of Japanese people since ancient times.
 
In August we moved to a spacious new location and we now have greater facility to provide more services.
 
We are looking forward to seeing our overseas guests as always and look forward to providing a broader experience for them under our new name, Waho-An Nature Tokyo.
 
Thank you.

  • Greetings from Ryo, the proprietor

    We welcome overseas guests visiting Tokyo.

    For those suffering stiff shoulders and lower back pain but are worried about communication during treatment, we can assure you that the therapists at our salon speak English.

    You can receive treatments, specifically targeted to your needs, without worrying about communication.

    We sincerely hope that all overseas guests visiting Japan enjoy a comfortable stay and sightseeing in Tokyo without the inconvenience of physical problems.

    I have studied in Canada and Australia and have been in this industry for 13 years.

    Every year, l provide services to over 1000 visitors from many different countries.

    In my experience I regularly come across the following issues.

    I know that many overseas guests do not share the same culture and customs for massage treatments in their home country. Many overseas visitors do not have an awareness of the cause of their physical problems so they cannot receive targeted treatments and do not have the necessary knowledge to manage their physical ailments properly.

    Many, resort to taking painkillers and other medications in what seems to me to be a haphazard approach. We want to help our clients to stop relying on painkillers. We are confident we can work together on a plan that will lead to a fundamental solution of your problems.

    We love to provide our overseas guests with an experience of the effectiveness of massage therapy such as Shiatsu, which has a long tradition in Japan, and to provide guests with the knowledge and tools to deal with their physical issues and have a happy life.

    More specifically, our therapies provide healing while at the same time relieving symptoms such as stiffness in the shoulders, lower back pain and knee pain. We can solve problems that have caused discomfort for many years and improve our clients’ health by dealing with issues related to poor posture and tiredness.

    We also teach you the necessary follow-up care and self-management techniques to ensure our massage effects are sustained.

    We encourage you to visit us and relieve yourself of the tiredness from your strenuous busy life.

    Please ensure your body is relaxed and healthy to enable you to enjoy your time in Japan and take home many happy memories.

  • CHIROPRACTIC MASSAGE

    The combination of Japanese Shiatsu with chiropractic adjustment is most popular course at our salon.
    The goal of this special massage combination, also known as spinal manipulation, is to improve spinal movement and your body’s physical function.
    We aim to balance the whole body and improve both posture and figure.
    However, direct/sudden chiropractic adjustments without massage often cause stress to the body. We do not recommend chiropractic adjustments without massage.
    People often receive direct adjustment while muscles are still stiff and haven’t been loosened up. This can result in the body rejecting the treatment and being ineffective. It is important for the body and muscles to be relaxed.
    Therefore, in our course, we first relieve your stiff muscles with comfortable Shiatsu massage and then, when relaxed, we adjust your skeletal alignment. We also provide effective stretching to improve flexibility and relieve pressure on the joints.
    It is important to note that by incorporating Shiatsu massage into chiropractic techniques, we can provide a holistic approach that does not cause stress on the body.
    Stiff and tight muscles transfer stress to the body’s skeletal structure.
    By incorporating Shiatsu massage that relaxes tight muscles, chiropractic techniques become easier and more effective.
    You can get the benefit of both relaxing Shiatsu massage and get treatments targeting any misalignment problems.
    We believe this is the best, safest and most appropriate way to perform chiropractic manipulation. You will surely feel the benefits of your realigned spine after treatment and enjoy the freedom from any tension!
    The combination Shiatsu/chiropractic massage is effective in maintaining a longer lasting therapeutic effect as well.
    The reason for this is that even if the muscles are relaxed using only massage, the skeleton to which the muscles are attached remain misaligned. Therefore, the muscles will be immediately strained by the misalignment and become stiff again. Using only massage in misaligned body will not have a lasting effect.
    For those who are averse to cracking, we have implemented a soft method that does not require cracking. For those who are apprehensive about chiropractic manipulation we can offer a more relaxing experience.
    We also provide advice on how to extend the benefits of our massage and how to prevent the recurrence of symptoms and how to maintain in the correct posture after treatment.
    This combination technique is rare outside Japan. So, we encourage you to take the opportunity to experience this at our salon when you come to Japan!

    Recommended ⇒ For those who are worried about body misalignment, and want to relieve conditions such as back pain, a stiff neck and shoulder, headache, sciatica, and knee pain, as well as for those seeking to enhance sports performance, and improve general flexibility and poor posture.

    CHIROPRACTIC MASSAGE review

  • Excellent chiropractic massage-a true expert
    I visited Ryo at Nature spa in Daikanyama twice during my 3 week vacation in Japan, both times opting for the chiropractic massage.
    I frequently have issues with my back due to my poor posture from slouching at work so I have had my fair share of massages.
    I can usually tell within the first 5 minutes of a massage whether the practitioner is just following a “routine” or truly trying to fix my problem areas.
    With Ryo’s chiropractic massage, he initially assessed my posture and pointed out where I was twisted and needed correction. He then provided a shiatsu style massage to loosen up the problem areas.
    The massage itself was so good that I would have been completely satisfied if it stopped there – you can just feel Ryo’s experience in the precision of his massage.
    After a thorough massage, Ryo performed some adjustments to stabilise the spine, then performed some stretches which he explained would help to achieve lasting results.
    He then guided me through some exercises I could perform after the session to prevent my problem from reoccurring.
    The session was not at all rushed and I felt like Ryo genuinely wanted to heal my crooked, twisted and fatigued back.
    Throughout the entire session, Ryo explained what he was doing, and why in excellent English – no issues there at all.
    After the session there is a noticeable difference in my posture and how little effort it takes to stand up straight.
    My usually slouching shoulders sat back in a healthy position and I generally felt better overall.
    I wish I didn’t have to go back home so soon as I feel that a few regular sessions with Ryo could be life changing.
    In summary, I recommend the Chiropractic massage to anybody with postural issues who wants more than just a relaxing massage. I’ll be back Ryo! See you soon.
  • AROMA TREATMENT

    Our aroma therapy course provides relief by employing aromatic components in the essential oil that are inhaled. These aromatic components stimulate nerves through our senses in the nose and send impulses that stimulate brain function. This in turn interacts with the autonomic nervous system and hormones from the endocrine system. The essential oils are also absorbed through the skin where they travel through the bloodstream interacting with the internal organs, muscles, and cells of the body.
    Our treatment promotes relaxation effects by stimulating the autonomic nervous system and relaxing both body and mind.
    (Key aroma treatments center on the spine where the autonomic nerves are concentrated.)
    We recommend aroma treatments for those in need of relaxation. Aroma therapy is effective in relieving both mental and physical fatigue.
    You can enjoy your all-important downtime to enable yourself to unwind and refresh in a private room.
    Recommended ⇒For those who are tired but experience difficulties getting to sleep, those who get stressed and frustrated, and those who want to relax.

    AROMA TREATMENT review

  • Wish I had time to go twice!
    This place was amazing! It was a short walking distance from the train station, so incredibly easy to get to.
    Marimo was thoughtful and very welcoming.
    I got the 90 min aroma therapy massage, to put it simply…heavenly!
    Definitely the best massage I’ve ever received.
  • LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

    The oil lymphatic massage improves the circulation. Your lymphatic system helps eliminate body’s waste.Through massage we can improve the metabolism of the body.The strength of our method is to clean up the lymph nodes that are located near the clavicle and hip joints. These joints are the main outlet for waste products, and our massage technique helps to wash away accumulated swelling and waste.

    ☆This detoxification effect also raises body’s immune system and aids self-healing processes.

    Recommended ⇒For those who easily get fatigued, catch colds, and suffer from swelling and get chills as well as for those who wish to relax and improve their health.

    LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE review

  • Relaxing yet Revigorating
    I emailed for an appointment for a lymphatic massage a few weeks ago and the staff at Nature responded within 24 hours.
    This little gem of a place is easy to find, less than 10 minutes works from Daikanyama Station.
    You walk through the doors and are made most welcome.
    The command of English is very good. Professional and friendly staff and the lymphatic massage was both intense and relaxing.
    The price for Tokyo as well is incredibly good and it’s rare to find places that offer such massages, especially ones that are bi-lingual.
    I live in Japan and will definitely be returning.
    I think I’ve found the massage place I’ve been looking for.
    Thank you Marimo!

    BODYCARE review

  • Shiatsu therapy
    Excellent shiatsu 90 mins.
    He surpassed expectation which was already high.
    So I can highly recommend the treatment by Ryo – he was very attentive to finding out the issues and worked hard to re balance my spine and gave me good feedback on further help re shoulder issue.
    I have had a lot of massages over the world- this was one of the absolute best. The foot massage is an extra but heavenly.
    Thanks Ryo – possibly the best therapist in Tokyo !
  • Amazing massage result !
    After giving birth to my second child I suffered from pain in the left side of my low back.
    On my first visit to the massage salon Hatanaka-san has recommended to make pelvis alignment along with shiatsu-massage.
    On the first day after massage session I felt changes – my posture became closer to normal and I felt relieved, the pain was gone!
    One more important thing – the service is provided in English.
    I’ve booked another session already and highly recommend this place to everyone.
  • REFLEXOLOGY

    The feet are said to be the second HEART. The concept behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot brings relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body. Several studies indicate that reflexology reduces pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress and anxiety, and enhances relaxation and sleep.
    Recommended ⇒ For those who like foot massages and are tired from too much walking

    CHIROPRACTIC LYMPHATIC DETOXIFICATION COURSE review

  • Chiropractic and Lymphatic Drainage.
    Had an incredible two hour experience at Nature.
    First a chiropractic treatment and shiatsu massage that felt like it was complete unique to the needs of my body, very targeted to what I needed and nothing like I’ve ever had before.
    My body was completely realigned so that I could sit up straight with much ease.
    After that the lymphatic drainage treatment was incredibly relaxing and soothing.
    Left feeling like a brand new person.
    Highly recommend it, whether you know what your body needs or not.
    It resets your body to tackle the stress and strain of life.
