Unfortunately, my last two weeks in Okinawa were spent preparing for our move to Misawa; you know, the paper work, organizing the move, changing the mailing address, taking care of banking concerns, etc. In other words, a few weeks o’ total STRESS! Fortunately, before I left, I had the opportunity to get a massage – a wonderful way to de-stress and decompress.
My friend encouraged me to try a local masseuse, Yukari Miyagi, who provides an array of treatments for her clients at her spa called Complex. I was immediately taken aback by Yukari’s appearance. She seemed to be of such a slight build, I thought, “Oh no, I won’t get much out of this experience.” But boy, I was soooo wrong! She gave me a fantastic, 60 minute deep tissue massage in the privacy of her own home – which is where her businesses is located. In a serenely decorated room with subtle lighting, soft music and incense burning, Yukari began her magic! Her touch was unbelievably strong while simultaneously being tremendously relaxing. I immediately began feeling the tension being released from my neck and shoulders. The atmosphere, along with Yukari’s expert skills, created such a soothing environment, that I found myself drifting in and out of consciousness – I had truly found an oasis amidst the hectic world of PCSing!
After my massage, I continued to pamper myself with a facial. Once again, Ms. Miyagi made me feel relaxed and at ease while she focused on the treatment. I could feel myself being transformed by the experience; by the time she had finished, I truly felt like a new person. I was thoroughly relaxed, yet full of confidence and exhilaration. There is no doubt in my mind, that this is the way to leave the wonderful island of Okinawa! In addition to a variety of services (listed below), Yukari works strictly with women. Her English is excellent and she is extremely pleasant and professional! My only wish is that I had found Ms. Miyagi earlier during my stay on the island!
