This is my review about my experience taking session Takenaga Sensei's 手あて. The reason I visited this place was the fact that my body was completely tired. I am a second year studying aikido in a special training program for instructors.This means that every day I have a three to five workouts. It's quite hard training. And my body does not always have time to recover. During the session, my body was able for the first time in a long time to relax and restore the natural flow of energy.The next day, during a training session, I realized that the tiredness is gone. In my case, it's definitely helped me at some time. And I plan to visit this place again. I also think this is a great opportunity to discover the unique Japanese method of healing. Best regards.
My name is Susan Mikkelson. In July I had the good fortune to be visiting Kyoto where I met Naomi. Naomi is a skilled and sensitive practitioner of Seitai, and it was a pleasure to receive from her a hand massage, which I enjoyed so much that I returned to her studio the next week for a full body massage. It was a very hot day, but the place was comfortable. She made me feel welcome and relaxed, and I was amazingly refreshed by her masterful touch. I went back out into the heat of the day with a calm spirit and a sense of physical wellness. I sincerely wish I lived in Kyoto so that I could return to her again and again!
