Nagomi’s Technique

Deep muscle approch

Our original massage technique is to approach the deep layers of muscles by applying deep continuous pressure.

In fact, kneading and rubbing with momentary pressure leads to damaging muscles and does not release muscles tension.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regarding the Treatment

Does it hurt?

We make sure to ask for the desired strength (strong enough, but not to the extent that you feel discomfort), so that you do not feel as though the treatment is “too painful.” If you feel that the strength of the massage is too painful to tolerate, please inform the therapist immediately. If you continue to tolerate the pain, it may result in muscle pain caused by excess massage.

I am worried about muscle pain caused by excessive massage.

At our salon, our technique consists of applying pressure at a straight angle, maintaining continuous pressure to the deep muscles, and slowly releasing pressure at the same angle. Because of this type of technique, there is little chance of injuring muscle fibers, and you will not feel any muscle pain afterwards. The kneading and rubbing technique in a typical massage may lead to muscle pain, so we do not practice such techniques for safety easons.

How long should I receive treatment?

It depends on the symptoms of each person, but we generally recommend a course of more than 60 minutes for first-time users. There is a significant difference between treating only part of the body as opposed to treating the entire body. The full body course will improve the body’s blood irculation and metabolism. By looking at the overall balance, we consider a course of at least 60 minutes to be the optimal length for starters.

Is there a difference between oil foot and reflexology?

Yes, at our salon we massage the soles of the feet, but we do not adopt the idea of reflex points on the feet. In order to alleviate fatigue and swelling of the feet, we apply pressure directly to the feet. We do not stimulate pressure points on the feet to alleviate shoulder stiffness, for example. Instead, if your shoulders are stiff, we recommend the body course. Rather than adopting the idea of reflex points, we believe that if there is a stiff area, treating that area directly will help to alleviate the pain.

Can I get a massage even if I am pregnant?

If you are in the stable period (more than 5 months after pregnancy and before the last month of pregnancy), then there is no problem. We will perform the treatment in the sideways position and facing up, so that you are in a comfortable position. During pregnancy, the lower back tends to become very stiff, so this treatment will be very effective. It is also effective for swelling of the feet.

It’s my first time getting a massage, so I’m not sure what is a good pressure.

Generally, we consider a “comfortable pain” to be the optimal pressure. There are some people who think that a massage must be painful to be effective, but this may result in injuring the muscle fibers. The therapist will apply pressure to your muscles and ask you, “Is this pressure O.K.?” Since there are individual difference as to how one feels pain, please make sure to inform the therapist if the pressure is too painful. You may also request the strength of the massage at any time during the treatment.

I do not want “pressure,” instead I want to be “massaged”.

Unfortunately, we cannot meet your request. This is because our technique involves slowly applying pressure to loosen the deepest layers of the muscles without damaging the muscles themselves. This cannot be done in the “kneading/rubbing” technique used in the typical massage.
In addition, we are trained in the technique of “deep muscle approach,” which is a shiatsu-based massage technique. Since we are highly trained in this technique, we are confident in our ability to “apply pressure,” but we are not trained to “massage,” so we do not practice such methods. To give an example, a Chinese restaurant that serves mediocre Poêle (a French cuisine) should instead be serving an exceptional Mabo tofu.

Other Questions

Is there a change of clothes?

Yes, we prepare a long-sleeve T-shirt and sweatpants. Of course, you may also bring your own set of clothing, or remain in your regular clothing. However, please understand that we may ask you to change if it is too difficult to treat in your regular clothing.

Can I come without making a reservation?

Of course. However, please understand that we may not have an availability, so making a reservation in advance would be more certain. Weekends tend to be particularly busy.

Could I request a male (female) therapist?

Yes, but it would be in the form of a staff reservation, so it will cost a staff reservation fee (550yen). This applies in the case of Male → Male staff, Male → Female staff, Female → Female staff, Female → Male staff. Also, if you would like anyone but a certain staff, this would also cost a staff reservation fee. The reason we do this is because a certain staff would be bound at a specific time frame, thus we would not be able to fill reservations at the maximum efficiency, so please consider it a compensation fee.

Can I pay with a credit card?

Yes. We accept Visa, Master, and JCB.

Do I need a health insurance card?

No, it is not necessary.

Can I get a receipt?

Yes, but it cannot be used as a medical treatment fee. Instead, it will be in the form of “Seitai treatment fee.”

Is there a parking lot?

No, we do not have a parking lot, but there are coin parking lots in the vicinity. Please check the access page for further information.

Can I go after drinking alcohol?

No, we ask that you please refrain from consuming alcohol before getting a massage. If alcohol is consumed, it may lead to a medical accident. Please come after you have sobered up.

Should I leave a tip?

No, a tip is not necessary. We strive to provide the best service possible at all times.
