Ito-Thermie and Massage Sessions


Ito-thermie is based on an ancient and unique Japanese healing art. It uses incense that is lit and placed in two metal instruments, which are then rolled on the body. The pleasurable effects of being massaged with this unique source of heat radiating deeply into the body, brings warmth and vitality.

It originated in traditional Zen temples in Japan and was developed about 70 years ago by a prominent doctor, Kin Itso Ito, into an effective practice.

Ito-Thermie uses incense composed of natural herbs and two minerals.

This incense is lit and placed in two metal instruments called ''Reionki" which allow the conduction and diffusion of heat in an indirect way: the instruments touch the skin, not the incense.

The incense holders are rolled on the body delivering a localiesd heat treatment which is deeply relaxing and nourishing.

It helps with a range of issues, including:

  •  Pain relief including joint pain and menstrual pain
  •  Mental stress
  •  Strengthening of the immune system
  •  Releasing muscle tension, fatigue, and stress
  •  Balancing the body’s nervous, circulatory, endocrine, metabolic and other systems
  •  Increasing vital energy and warmth
  •  Soothing difficult skin conditions
  •  Cleansing the lungs and bloodstream
  •  Cleaning the energy field around the body
  •  Providing physical and emotional balance
  •  Sleep disturbances

A session of Ito-Thermie (30 minutes) can be added to a  full body massage giving an overall effect of deep relaxation and well being.

"Ito Thermie is a wonderful heat-stimulant therapy that works with heat, finger-pressure therapy and gorgeous incense. I really enjoyed my session with Chintan, it was deeply healing and restorative. I felt the session continued to work for some time after the treatment and I was left feeling deeply relaxed. Highly recommended."
