Rakkenho Therapy

Rakkenho therapy, a lesser-known but intriguing approach, utilizes the soles of the feet to deliver a full-body massage. This Japanese health practice focuses on applying gentle pressure to specific points on the body, promoting relaxation, improved circulation, and overall well-being.


The Power of the Feet in Rakkenho Therapy

Unlike most massages that utilize hands or oils, Rakkenho therapy relies on the therapist’s bare feet to deliver pressure. By gently walking on the receiver’s clothed body in a specific sequence, the therapist aims to:

  • Stimulate acupoints and energy flow throughout the body (similar to acupressure)
  • Release muscle tension and tightness
  • Enhance circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Promote relaxation and stress reduction.



While scientific research on this therapy is limited, proponents believe it offers a range of potential benefits, including:

  • Relief from muscle pain and stiffness
  • Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Boosted immunity
  • Relief from chronic fatigue
  • Frozen shoulders
  • Tennis elbow
  • Spondylitis
  • Lower back pain

Who Can Benefit from Rakkenho Therapy?

It may be suitable for individuals seeking a natural approach to managing various concerns, including:

  • Chronic pain (muscle tension, back pain, etc.)
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Reduced mobility
  • Fatigue
  • Those seeking overall wellness support
