Kagoshima Acupuncture Clinic Tsubozen gets a refresh with a modern look

PUBLISHED Sep 6, 2023

Reception at Tsubozen

Two months have passed since Tsubozen (Yamashitacho, Kagoshima City, Phone: 099-248-9646), a clinic offering acupuncture, moxibustion, and chiropractic, reopened after renovation.

Previously operating as Acupuncture and Massage Tsubozen, the clinic refreshed its logo and interior design to create a more modern atmosphere, aiming to attract a younger clientele who can visit with a salon-like experience. The interior is predominantly purple, described as an “exotic yet somehow mystical space that evokes a sense of calm in one’s heart.” The clinic features five fully private rooms and incorporates music and aromas to “heal through all five senses.”

All the treatment staff at the clinic hold national qualifications. Recognizing that 80% of their clientele are women, they have three female acupuncturists to ensure a level of understanding during treatments, maintaining an equal perspective.

In addition to acupuncture and moxibustion treatments, they offer courses that combine chiropractic care, aromatherapy massages, and dry head spa treatments.

Chief Director Masaya Kamitsubo added, “With the increase in remote work and extended use of computers and smartphones, women in the active generation are facing new beauty and health concerns. By relieving stress in both mind and body, we hope to assist them in living their best selves at all times.”

Opening hours: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Saturdays and Sundays: 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.). Closed on Thursdays and holidays.
