We are here to help you
Frequently asked questions are collected for you. Please read here before making a reservation or contacting us.
What is "dry head massage"?
Dry head massage differs from the massage using oil or other substances.
The treatment is performed without wetting the hair.
If your hair is tied up, we will ask you to let it down, and Also, please remove your earrings and neckless, but there is no need to change into clothes for the treatment. Please wear clothes that are loose around the neck, such as collarless clothes, T-shirt etc.
Doesn't it mess up my hair?
Akie Method is a finger pressure massage. During the treatment, we wrap your head with an organic towel from the back of your head, so you will not have artistic sleeping habits.
Our salon is equipped with a dresser room so that you can have your hair done after the treatment.
Can men get massages?
Of course. Our salon has only private rooms, so you can relax and receive treatment without worrying about your surroundings.
Dresser room is for both men and women. However, since the concept of our salon is to offer each guest a relaxing time, we limit the number of customers we accept.
For this reason, the number of guests in the dresser room might be maximum of 3.
I'm pregnant, can I get treatment?
We regret to inform you, but we don't offer our treatment for pregnant people. During the treatment, the guests lie on the bed on their back, and keep in the same position. This position may make pregnant people difficult to relax and also the treatment may cause substantial and adverse health risks. We understand that sleep is important for those people too, but with those reasons, we hope you will accept our reluctance.
Do you accept walk-in guests?

But priority will be given to customers with reservations.

Why did I feel sick after massage?
After receiving a treatment, you may experience physical discomfort such as lethargy, dizziness, or headache, etc. This is called a Cleansing reaction and indicates a temporary discomfort that occurs when blood flow is improved by the treatment and the body is trying to regain its original functions. It tends to occur more strongly in those who have been neglecting their care, but it improves with rest and good hydration. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
