About CANTIK

CANTIK meets 2B -Bali and Bangkok-

In the beginning, Cantik focused our life on Balinese massage.

I was drawn to Bali to learn the art of massage as well as the healing spirits of their wonderful people. It has had a tremendous impact on my lives.

Balinese culture has a deep belief in spirituality as shown in their admiration of gods, nature, and ancestors. They often use massage as a form of treatment and make natural medicine from plants.

Bali is an escape from the stress of modern life, a place where the people can focus on their spiritual well-being.

Cantik brings the Balinese healing method to Japan. Our services started in 2002. In addition to massage, Cantik also offers services in aroma therapy.

In 2011, Cantik and Bali combined to create a yoga studio and cafe names THE YOGA PLACE in Bangkok.

 

Bangkok is a city that lives in harmony with old and new. You can find modern conveniences surrounding people with strong cultural traditions. This balance is what attracts people from all over the world to Thailand.

THE YOGA PLACE is an escape from the stress of modern life; a place where our guests can focus on their spiritual well-being and be reminded of their own traditions.

Our mission is to serve healthy food with a focus on vegetarian selections and to provide true yoga practice. Together you will find purity of the body and tranquility of the mind.

I’ve been fortunate to spend most of my time in Shimonoseki, Bali, and Bangkok these days, as well as other cities in Asia. Traveling makes me feel like I am living the life I was meant to live. I am making memories that will last a lifetime. For all my clients, I wish you will find your own journey of your life too.
