Luisa Sato Heaven is shiatsu

Shiatsu, traditional Japanese physical therapy, involves finger (shi) pressure (atsu) massage. The treatments aim to alleviate the symptoms of ill health and injury.

After training with the shiatsu master Zenzo Yamamoto, Luiza Sato opened her first clinic in Moema in 1980: now the chain boasts 25 locations.

The goal at Luiza Sato is to relax—a process instigated by the minimal Japanese-style decor and harmonious ambience. After taking off their shoes and stepping onto the tatami mats, guests are offered a steaming cup of green tea. Then comes the therapy… And when it’s over, when every pressure point has been probed and the good energy is flowing uninhibitedly again, a farewell cup of missoshiro soup sends the starry-eyed customers on their way.
