History of Tokyo Chiropractic

Tokyo Chiropractic has moved to the new office in Minami Aoyama

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 Research 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 (USA) reopened as Tokyo Chiropractic Center adjoining a medical clinic which has a X-ray facility 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 about 90 countries have visited Tokyo Chiropractic until today. In 2019 Tokyo Chiropractic celebrated the 70th anniversary since its establishment.

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 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.

At your initial visit, it takes about 30-45 minutes for performing examinations (postural exam, neurological exam, orthopedic exam, physical exam etc.) and chiropractic treatment. Along with the treatment home exercises to improve your body function are advised. If necessary we ask you to take X-ray or MRI at your local hospital or clinic before starting chiropractic treatment. From the second visit it takes about 15-20 minutes. People living in a big city like Tokyo are under stress and suffer from various musculoskeletal problems due to office work and manual work. Chiropractic treatment helps you achieve optimum health by improving your natural healing ability.
