"I can provide not only satisfaction but also surprise and excitement. I would like to continue to be a therapist with such a detailed eye."

Q. How do you feel about working at Kyoto Hogushido? A.It's easy to work. Although it's a shift system, the company is flexible, so it's easy to find time for your private life. I'm blessed with the staff I work with, and I feel comfortable here, so it's almost my 10th year here. Q.In what ways has your experience abroad been helpful? A: I guess it's because I can now speak English. Kyoto has a lot of foreign tourists, so it's useful for customer service. Additionally, being blessed with the opportunity to treat clients of many different races, cultures, and professions has given me great confidence in my career as a therapist. Q.What is the secret to continuing to work as a therapist for a long time like Mr. Ikuno? A: I think it's important to continue to love this job. When I feel like I'm starting to dislike something, I try to find some distraction to reset my mind. For me, it's travel and music. Q: As a therapist, is there anything you keep in mind when interacting with clients? A. The purpose of the treatment is to meet the customer's requests, but is it possible to take the treatment to a higher level? I think so. For example, if we can find and treat the fatigue and stiffness that the customer is unaware of, we can provide surprise and excitement in addition to satisfaction. I would like to continue to be a therapist with such a detailed eye. Moved to the United States in 1990. Worked on-site at a Shiatsu clinic in Oahu, Hawaii, and then worked for 12 years at the long-established Salon de Tokyo in Manhattan, New York. After leaving the company, he opened a home salon in Brooklyn, California. We collaborate with travel agencies to provide treatments for VIP customers of Japanese companies. Although his clients include many celebrities, including people of various races, artists, and actors, he returned to Japan in 2010 after living abroad for 20 years. He has supported Kyoto Hogushido since its founding, and works as a lymphatic colgist and therapist at the store he is in charge of.
