History of Tokyo Chiropractic

History of Tokyo ChiropracticTokyo Chiropractic is located in Aoyama, one of Tokyo's trendiest business districts and is near Aoyama street (route 246) lined with designer boutiques and famous restaurants. It is only a four minute walk from Omotesando station. A third generation chiropractor, Kei Takeyachi who is a graduate of RMIT University School of Chiropractic, Australia opened this office with his father Nobuyoshi Takeyachi in 2011.
Originally Yoneo Takeyachi who was one of early Japanese chiropractors established Tokyo Chiropractic Kenkyujo (Office) in Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo in 1949. Later in 1977 Yoneo's three sons, Hiroaki, Kazuyoshi and Nobuyoshi who all graduated from National College of Chiropractic, US reopened as Tokyo Chiropractic Center in the same place. In 2011 Tokyo Chiropractic opened in the vicinity as the successor to Tokyo Chiropractic Center, which is a certified office by the Japanese Association of Chiropractors (JAC), a national member of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) affiliated with World Health Organization (WHO). People from 74 countries have visited Tokyo Chiropractic until today.

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic (comes from Greek word meaning "treatment by hand") is a natural healing health care with spinal manipulation (or adjustment) to improve nerve function and restore general health with surgery free, drugless environment. As the nervous system consisting of the brain, the spinal cord and the nerve roots, controls every function of the human body, chiropractors primarily focus on the spine that protects the nervous system. Chiropractic was first introduced in 1895 by D.D. Palmer in the United States. In 2005, World Health Organization (WHO) published the official guidelines on basic training and safety in chiropractic, and the practice of chiropractic is regulated by law in 45 countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Switzerland etc. The objective of chiropractic treatment is to relieve nerve interference (subluxation) and emphasize the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself by correcting misalignment of the spine and other joints. As a result, treatment helps many conditions including musculoskeletal symptoms.
