Professional massage relieves daily aches and pains

Date Posted: 2002-11-09

There is nothing quite like a soothing massage to relieve the stresses of the day. Azul Mar that celebrates its third anniversary 11th of this month offers seven different body massage courses priced between $20 and $60. Azul Mar is located in a residential house. First time visitors are asked to fill out a questionnaire detailing age and information on health. Then the customer chooses which type of massage he or she wants. The most popular is the body balance course, which costs ¥3000 or $30 and includes aromatherapy, cupping, and body adjustment.

Other courses include deep-tissue manipulation with adjustment that is effective to release neck, shoulder and back tension; rehabilitative lymphatic drainage, a method that was developed in a Belgian rehabilitation hospital; British IFA registered aromatherapy; Swedish massage, Thai massage; neuromuscular therapy and sports massage. The latest addition is called Shanghai Tsuina that is a whole body course that uses techniques that were developed in China. Azul Mar also offers facial treatments.

Akemi Ishikawa, who has worked as a body therapist in Tokyo and Nagoya, runs the massage house with her sister Sachie Toma. Younger sister Shima Boranos also helps out. According to Ishikawa, Azul Mar therapists focus on total body health. “Our therapists have been trained in Japan and overseas to master special treatment methods. Thus we can always offer a treatment that suits best for the customer’s physical condition,” Ishikawa says.

To get to Azul Mar from KAB Gate 2 drive down Gate 2 Street and across Highway 330 all the way to Awase. Cross Highway 329 intersection and go straight until the third traffic light. Turn left at the light and pass through one light until a second yellow bus stop on the left. Turn left and Azul Mar is on the right at the end of the road.
