    Yoko Kitahara is a beautiful SPA located in a small lane at Jaffa, in an area that so many different cultures manage to live together.

    ''

     As arriving to the place I felt the relaxed vibe, I guess that it was because of the Mediterranean sea nearby.

     

    Off course that this relaxed feeling was kept also while entering to the place

    ''

     

    The SPA is named after the owner- Yoko Kitahara, which has been living in Israel since 2008, and used to work in few places around the country as a therapist, till she make her dream come true and opened her own place two years ago.

     

    The  designed of the place is minimalistic, but still the original arabic design of the initial building was kept

    The exclusiveness of this place is the combination between therapy and Japanese culture.

     

    As arriving to the place, the Japanese experience has started!

     

    We were asked to take off our shoes (got slippers instead) and went to the waiting room, that’s where the Japanese hosting (which called Omotenashi) was so sensed.

     

    First we recieved hot towel, an organic buckwheat tea with coockie and cracker, served so nicely

    After few minutes we were taking a warm foot bath in Hinuki Japanese wood bowls

    ''

     

    Everything is about the sensitivity of the host to the guest’s needs, to make him or her calm and relaxed.

    The culture of carrying about each and every small detail – from the beautiful plates and cups, the selected Japanese organic tea, the way the trey is organized, the different pleasant smells, the music, the right temperature etc.

    Yoko started on her own, as the only therapist.

    Her first client was actually the woman who lives next door. The word spread quickly and now the spa has a fine collection of professional and talented therapists who works with Yoko, she selects each one of them by herself and trains them with her method that combines the base of shiatsu (meridian work) and aromatherapy.

    The treatments are preformed slowly, and deeply, giving special focus on the rhythm of breathing.

     

    I have to say that this is the only place that I know that gives such a long treatment (the shortest is of 75min).

     

    Treatment has started, as I came with my husband we were taking a double room that both treatments (him & I) are in the same room. the music was so relexed & the therapist were very proffesionals.

    ''

    During the treatment they used few diffrent oils with special fragrances.

    Yoko mixes her own combinations of pure aromatic oils to create a journey of different fragrances during the treatment.

    The therapists use hot steamy towels that are being put on the body to spread the fragrances. 

    Above this, it gave warm & cosy feeling (also due to the warmed bed sheet.

     

    Yoko works only with pure organic materials and oils, even the towels are made from organic cotton.

     

    There is a selection of few kinds of original treatments (Hogushi Aroma, Hogushy Premiun), and also shiatsu, twina, reflexology. There is also a special selection of beauty treatments which is based on organic natural gentle peeling process combined with massage (Bijiin Beauty- Facial and full body), and a selection of couple treatments.

     

    When we finished the treatment we felt so loaded! we went to the waiting room and an organic seasame tea was waiting for us

    ''
     

     

    The spa offers to buy a special personal gift box as a present – wraped with a beautiful handmade Japanese paper (Washi) that is imported by Yoko from  Kyoto. In addition you can purchase Dr. Hauschka Facial products.

    ''

     

    As summary  I have to say that this was the best spa experience that I had.
