If you have nagging pain that hasn’t improved despite seeking treatment, don’t resign to it just yet. This age-old Japanese treatment might just be the remedy you need.
With our busy urban lives, having any sort of pain or discomfort can really hamper day-to-day activities. Pain feels uncomfortable, impacts our mood, drains our energy and occupies our attention. Worse still, it disrupts sleep, and a study found that not getting enough snooze time can further worsen the discomfort. We can imagine a downward spiral right there.
In Singapore, about 85 per cent of people suffer from pain, and of this, more than half stay silent about their discomfort. One in three even try to ignore their condition. Instead of living with pain, try the unique Japanese seitai (rebalancing) treatment offered by MJG Japanese Body Therapy.
In Japan, seitai is a popular treatment for correcting body alignment issues that give rise to pain. It employs breathwork, pressure point massages as well as stretching and adjusting. The practice is said to be about 100 years old, but MJG has a fresh take on it pioneered by the company’s founder Mr Kizaki Yuta.
After injuring his back while swimming and finding that nothing worked for him except osteopathic pelvic correction treatment, Mr. Kizaki launched MJG nine years ago and introduced PIM therapy, his personal spin on seitai. Since then, the company has established more than 175 shops across Japan, with over a million customers who have tried and were satisfied with the treatments. With the opening of its new outlet in Singapore, you can try the brand’s famed treatment too.
What is PIM therapy?
PIM gets its acronyms from the treatment’s three key approaches to killing pain:
- Pelvic correction, to prevent muscle strain and stiffness which causes poor lymph and blood circulation as well as pain
- Inner muscle training, to prevent future distortion
- Muscle adjustment, which relaxes tense muscles, even those deep within your body
PIM treatment is designed to be both preventive and corrective, combining seitai techniques with proprietary ones along with elements of bone setting (also known as judo therapy since it was developed by judo practitioners to treat their injured peers). The overall effect is meant to fire up your body’s healing response to get rid of pain, as well as improve alignment, flexibility and mobility.
Who is PIM treatment most suited for?
This treatment may just be the thing you need if you’ve been affected by long-term pain, feel out of sorts after giving birth, or have developed niggling aches from poor posture at work. As it helps with posture, PIM therapy will also give you a better silhouette. Sporty individuals can also use PIM treatment to recover faster after exercise or alleviate symptoms from old injuries. Though posture correction sounds aggressive, the PIM method is safe and gentle enough even for elderly folk. Treatments are carried out on a bed designed by American chiropractors.
In addition to PIM treatment, MJG offers massage therapy too. To provide customers with cheerful service and top-quality effective treatment, all staff are rigorously trained in-house to high standards. If you’re interested in trying out MJG Japanese Body Therapy, the company is offering an attractive 50 per cent off the PIM Standard Program as an opening promotion that’s valid till April 30, so make your appointment today!
