3. Foot bath

head spa kuuFirst, you will soak in a footbath containing moisturizing bath milk. As the footbath is massaged while you soak your feet, I felt my blood flow improve and my body’s core warmed up!

4. Counseling

head spa kuuI will talk with the spa therapist about where on my body I am feeling tired and what kind of discomfort I am experiencing. I have stiff shoulders and eyestrain from working in an office, so I decided to have her focus on relaxing me there. The spa therapist will also check the condition of your scalp and choose a shampoo and treatment for your hair quality.

5. Options

The 120-minute course includes one of the following four massage options in addition to the spa menu. *180 minute course includes 3 options.

5-1. Foot Reflexology

head spa kuuI was relaxed from below the knees to the soles of my feet with the original oil. The oil massage and the stretching that they gave me made my legs feel lighter, and the swelling and tiredness in my legs went away.

5-2. Hand Reflexology

head spa kuuThe hand massage was from below the elbow to the palm of the hand, and I was told that lumpy palms are evidence of accumulated waste! I was surprised to see how stiff my arms and hands are, since I usually work mostly on the computer at work.

5-3. Eye care

head spa kuuDry massage is used to relieve facial pressure points, acupressure on the head, and even the neck and shoulders. A hot eye pillow, which is effective for eye strain, warms the eye area and relieves tension around the eyes.

5-4. Neck and Shoulder Oil Massage

Using oil specially designed for massage, the massage is performed on the neck, shoulders, décolleté, and shoulder blades. While listening to healing music, the massage with a rhythm that matches your relaxed breathing and comfortable strength is very pleasant and makes you feel like you are falling asleep.

Now, let’s try the head spa experience! It would be a waste if I fell asleep, but this feeling of being out of it is evidence that I am relaxed enough to fall asleep!

6-1. Oil Massage

head spa kuuMassage oil is used to gently relieve stiffness in the scalp, neck, and shoulders. Please tell the spa therapist how strong you like it. You can even feel yourself getting gritty and stiff when the stiff areas are touched! Just the right amount of acupressure will relieve the stiffness in your head.

6-2. Shampoo

head spa kuuFor shampoo and treatment, they use “Head Spa Kuu” original brand Kuu hair care series. It is the industry’s first shampoo that “does not contain a drop of water” and is the highest quality hair care product that uses collagen extract instead of water! I was given the “SHINONOME” shampoo to use. It smells very nice and soothing!

6-3. Cream Massage

head spa kuuAfter thoroughly removing dirt from the pores, cleansing milk is used to carefully massage the stiff areas of the scalp with the bellies of the fingers, gently wrapping the head. The steam mist improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow and softens the scalp. The steam keeps the temperature of the scalp constant, so you can receive the treatment without getting cold!

6-4. Treatment

head spa kuuAfter all the dirt is removed, a comb is used to carefully blend the hair so that the nutrients reach the ends of the hair. At this point, each strand of hair felt silky and smooth without tangling!

6-5. After massage

head spa kuuAfter the spa, they will massage and stretch you from your head to neck and shoulders with the bed raised. Your body will slowly awaken and you will feel a sense of clarity in your head!

6-6. Scalp serum

head spa kuuAfter rinsing off the treatment and towel drying, a moisturizing scalp serum is applied to keep the scalp hydrated and to improve the scalp environment. Like the shampoo, this serum does not contain a drop of water! You will be given a good moisturizer before your hair is dried.

6-7. After blow dry

head spa kuuAt the end of the treatment, the spa stylist blow-dries my hair well and beautifully! My hair is long and thick, so I usually have to iron it to keep it in place, but I was so impressed that my hair was so straight that I didn’t even need an iron after just blow-drying.
