My name is Takayuki Shigematsu. I worked in the areas of research and development of functional materials at Japanese companies as a scientist, and implemented the mission of applied technology scouting in Europe, and establishment and management of the research institution for medical device-related products in Switzerland for 25 years in total. I left the company in 2015 and founded a company, which has provided therapeutic service called Japanese Reset Therapy since January 2016.
I met the origin of the Reset Therapy in 2001 when I was suffering from fatigue, insomnia, stiff shoulders and neck due to my stressful hard working conditions. The symptoms are so severe that I had to take sick leave since it is kind of burn out. I have tried several therapies but none of them brought essential improvement to the symptoms until I tried the origin of the Reset Therapy as my last hope. After several sessions, I realized this is something different concept from the others. In the end, I could come back to work.
Japanese Reset Therapy is to mitigate the chronically tensed muscles without pushing nor massaging strongly. If muscles are aggressively stimulated, the brain reacts in a protective measures to it and the muscles become even harder afterwards as a defense mechanism. We need to reassure our brain that it does not need to keep the tension of muscles. We can release the tension of muscles by touching the muscles while paying attention to respiration, gently swaying and stretching. When the muscles are reset, the circulation of blood and lymph improve, the pain is relieved, and the body alignment and posture become corrected naturally. The body will finally be able to restore the balance by its natural healing ability.
I recommend the Reset Therapy for those who with symptoms for lasting years and has already tried various therapies, which was not unfortunately satisfy you. Even though following symptoms and diagnoses are expressed by our clients, there are, for example, shoulders, back and neck pain, knee pain, numbness, headache, migraine, sciatica, scoliosis, tremor, curved back, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia, chronic fatigue, mobility improvement after accident or operation.
I believe that there is a strong need for Japanese Reset Therapy. That is why I have opened Lausanne cabinet since Jan 2018 and Nyon cabinet since Jan 2019 as well as Montreux cabinet, where I am based in.
I have been working in 2001 in Japan under very challenging conditions, even to Japanese standards (night work in addition to day work, intense stress, high responsibilities, short deadlines). With time, my body suffered from these working conditions : bad physical shape, terrible shoulder pain, neck pain and chronic exhaustion, mood changes.
I tried all kind of medical treatments, physical therapies or massages, but all I could get was a temporarily relief. Then I learned about Japanese Reset Therapy, and took an appointment. Though I was skeptical at first given my previous experiences, the feeling after the Japanese Reset Therapy treatment was quite different and gave me hope. I continued the therapy and gradually completely regained my wellness, I even felt better than ever afterwards because I could now regulate myself and prevent the troubles I suffered from before, and met a lot of people who went through the same experience as me and who were mitigated by the Japanese Reset Therapy.
This experience convinced me of the usefulness of the Japanese Reset Therapy thanks to its unique approach based on an integrated understanding of the brain – muscle interaction in the treatment of stiffness or pain, which leads to an increased global wellbeing. Thus, I decided to become a therapist and to introduce to Switzerland the Japanese Reset Therapy.
