Chiropractic Care in Tokyo, Japan

In our city of 14 million people, there are not enough holistic healthcare options. Electra Chiropractic is proud to be your best choice for chiropractic care. Here you will find a native English speaking, USA and Hong Kong registered and licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. 

Dr. Ariel's connection to Japan began in the 1950s, when her grandparents met, got married, and had their first two children in Japan. Since then, various aspects of Japanese culture and language have been in her family. In 2023, the opportunity came to move to Tokyo. The decision was easy, with a  combination of family history, an adventurous spirit, and a deep drive to provide excellent chiropractic care to a country with so few options.

Why Electra?

Electra comes from the ancient Greek Ēlektra, meaning amber, shining, bright, or radiant. 

 

Chiropractic also shares a partially Greek etymology, coming from chiro, meaning hand, and praktikos, meaning practice. Thus, to practice by hand. 

Chiropractors are trained to look for spinal subluxations in the body. Subluxation comes from Latin and holds two meanings. One is a slight misalignment of bones. The other comes from sub, meaning lower, and lux, meaning light.

 

If a person has a subluxation, they are not shining as brightly.

 

Electra Chiropractic aims to help people shine bright once again.
