At Masa.Kanai, we introduce a new revolutionary experience known as a “Head Spa.” Based on the Indian Ayuverdic Massage, Japan further developed the concept to create a new original holistic wellness process. More than just a simple head massage, a Head Spa combines hair treatment, scalp renewal, detoxing & deep cleansing, aromatherapy, and a shiatsu massage with a unique Japanese methodology to provide customers with the ultimate Zen relaxation experience.
 In essence, a Head Spa serves as a facial for your hair and scalp. As opposed to a cure for poor hair and scalp conditions, a Head Spa acts a preventive by ensuring that the head is in its best natural condition so that such issues do not occur from the start. The first of its kind in New York City.

Tansan Carbonated Bath

 Elevate the Head Spa experience by adding on a Tansan Carbonated Bath. The health benefits of carbonated water has been used in European and Japanese beauty & health resorts for years. Carbonated water boasts a pletora of healing properties recommended for high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, circulatory disorders, migraines, fatigue, dysfunctional throid, eczema, open wounds, cellulite, and more. Carbon dioxide, whether as a gas or liquid, enters the blood arteries through the skin's pore and dilates the vessels to increase circulation. With a better flow of oxygen and blood, the body is able to rejuvenate at a faster pace.
 For the head, carbon dioxide is also able to rebalance the hair's pH levels. A healthy hair pH would be 4.5; however, normal hair care regiments increases the pH to a high akaline levels due to the pH of chemical treatments and everyday beauty products. Cardon Dioxide rebalances the pH with its acidic context, leaving the hair soft and silky. It also allows for a deeper cleanse, using the bubbles to reach deep into the pores and remove filth and build up. Below are examples of the build up removed from regular water compared to carbonated water.
