La maison de Maaru

La maison de Maaru is a single-house salon where you can experience treatments in a spacious and relaxing Japanese-style room.

Mrs. Saito is an accomplished entrepreneur with a vast knowledge of nutrition, health, and beauty. She runs her business on her own and incorporates her knowledge into her everyday life. She’s very fit and looks very youthful too!

Since treatments are done in her own home, the experience makes it feel personal and gives you peace of mind.

Acupuncture therapy involves stimulating acupuncture points with extremely thin needles, approximately 0.2 millimeters in diameter, designed to minimize discomfort for the customers.

The procedure is rather painless even for people with sensitive skin like me. It improves blood circulation and stimulates nerves resulting in a more youthful glow. Mrs. Saito’s calming presence makes the experience very relaxing.

A 100 % horse oil facial mask is applied while massaging.

Horse oil is a popular moisturizer in Japan. It can be found in cosmetic products or purchased on its own. The one applied here is scented with lemongrass, adding a level of aromatherapy when applied to the face. It’s very calming and has a healing effect, making it a very relaxing time.

Moxibustion therapy is a method that involves burning small cones of moxa over the skin to stimulate acupuncture points. It is said to be suitable for preventing illness and improving physical conditions.

One of the staff was experiencing back pain due to the nature of her job which involves standing for long periods of time. With only a short and simple treatment you can relieve pain by stimulating the nerves and improving blood circulation in the affected area.

This is the pressurizer called ‘Kaatsu’ literally translated to ‘add pressure’. It feels the same as when getting your blood pressure checked at the doctor’s.

Pressure Training

This method of training is said to add to the effectiveness of muscle training activities by applying pressure to the upper arms. Instead of lifting 10kg weights, for example, you can achieve the same results with only 2kgs while using the pressurizer. You can use it while doing various styles of body training making it more efficient.

A spacious Japanese-style room with a view of the garden.

The unique feature of this house is the Japanese-style garden on the terrace. I believe it provides an ideal space for relaxing after treatments or exercises, enjoying a leisurely time while enjoying tea.
