Manual Therapy sessions are given at our practice

that is within walking distance from Fukudaimae Metro Station.

What to expect from a session:


Treatment Setting

We adapt to your needs and work either on a futon at floor level or on a massage table. You remain fully clothed during the session, therefore we recommend to bring loose fitting, comfortable clothing.

Session Format

Individual sessions with Philippe or Hiroko. We both are recognized practitioners and with 30 years of clinical experience, we have been giving thousands of treatments to people with all kind of conditions.


We also offer 4 hands sessions with both Philippe and Hiroko working together.


Both the individual and the 4 hands sessions take approximately 60 minutes.

The techniques used during the session will vary according to your present needs.

What is Shinzui Bodywork

It's a whole-body manual therapy, firmly rooted in Eastern bodywork traditions, with special focus on meridian work enriched with Western visceral, fascial and musculoskeletal bodywork.


Why choose Shinzui Bodywork

During a session our aim is to help the body, mind and spirit to regain its balance.


For this we have a wide range of techniques. We listen with our hands to the needs of the body to have a maximal effect on the overall wellbeing of the receiver.

It is now proven that Manual Therapy helps to reduce stress and contribute to overall wellbeing, it has both preventative and remedial effects.

In our practice we have the experience to treat a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, as well as emotional conditions. 

Treatment through touch not only reduces muscle stiffness, stimulates the skin, it also aids digestion, and influences the nervous system.


In our treatments we also address a wide range of chronic conditions, such as headaches, PMS, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety, and musculoskeletal pain, including low back, neck, and joint pain.


The effect of the treatment may be stimulating and invigorating or calming and relaxing, depending on the goal of the session.
