“Kaatsu” means “hard and lasting pressure” in Japanese. We have chosen this name because it tells a lot abput the way we work at KAATSU MASSAGE: We put at lot of pressure on the muscles and tissues in order to heal bodies from tension – in our experience hard pressure and the work with the deep tissues of the body is the absolut best way to get the best results in massage.
The idea behind KAATSU MASSAGE bloomed when our founder was on a business trip overseas. He found it very frustrating that it was not possible to get a massage after 8 PM. This is an issues for a lot of traveling business people, who often have long and hard days, and therefore are not back at their hotels until after 8 PM. The need to relax your body and fall well asleep after a long and hard day goes very well hand in hand with a good and relaxing massage, but for business people this is not possible as most hotels’ massage service closes before 8. This issue became one of the founding ideas behind KAATSU MASSAGE: Massage should be available where you need it and when you need it – 24 hours a day. This provides more flexibility for the costumer, who can now have massage at home, massage in his or her own room at the hotel, after a workout ect. In short: KAATSU MASSAGE provides massage when it’s needed, massage where it’s needed.
Another founding value for us at KAATSU MASSAGE is our high quality standards. We put a lot of effort into finding massage therapist with the right skills and strenght. Our founder found it frustrating that the quality of the masseurs on the market today varies so much – our founder found that as a costumer you would never now if you were lucky to get a high quality massage or not. This is why KAATSU MASSAGE takes pride in being very strict in our selection of massage therapists. In that way we ensure that our clients will experience high quality massage every single time they book a massage with us.
Working with Danish companies we see a rising number of employees, who due to sedentary work, experience issues with their neck, shoulders, back, and lower back. In many cases this leads to tension headaches, migraine and restraining of other parts of the body, and this again leads to a higher number of sick leave days. In the worst cases we see permanent body damage and employees, who become sick on long term. At KAATSU MASSAGE we are specialized in working out body issues and muscle tension that stems from sedentary work. Our experience as well as scientific research shows that regular deep-tissue massages have a positive effect on the number of sick leave days, and furthermore reduce symptoms of stress.
