Asia Physio

Asia Physio, formerly Tokyo Physio, is a very good physiotherapy clinic that has been serving the foreign community since 2002. It’s run by Aussies Bevan and Vanessa Colless, both high level triathletes. They have a well trained staff of therapists. It’s on the expensive side, as they do not accept health insurance. Generally, the first visit, where they do a thorough analysis of your injury, costs ¥12,000 and subsequent visits ¥6,000 (approx.). However, you will be getting top quality diagnosis and advice, including email followups. They also have a very good English-speaking Japanese woman masseuse.
Services include “running biomechanical assessments” and “ergonomic consultations.”
