These Customers Spill Why They’re Fans of Karada (And Why You’ll Love It, Too!)

Stress can come in different forms: traffic, deadlines, people who don’t spark joy in your life… the list goes on.

No matter what the cause is, your body is bearing the brunt of it. Stress buildup can translate into different body imbalances such as headaches, poor posture, and back pain. While massages can provide temporary relief, there’s a solution that can remedy more than just a few kinks in your back.

Enter Karada. A Japanese term for “body,” this establishment is patterned after Setai or body maintenance centers found across Japan. Their signature AP Balance and Body Treatment addresses the source of the problem by going straight to the body's balance points: the atlas (neck and shoulder area) and the pelvis. It also includes bone alignment and muscle treatment to achieve a good body balance.

Great news: Karada’s bestselling 90-minute treatment is finally back! Thousands of coupons have been sold from its previous runs—a solid indicator of how effectively it works. And should you find yourself looking for something to soothe your pain beyond minty balms and massages, let these testimonials convince you to try it out.

“Bye-bye, back pain!”

I bought this for my boyfriend as he was having chronic back pain after our 10-day trip overseas. It helped him a lot! As [of] today (it’s been 5 months since his therapy), haven’t hear him complain about back pain even after walking endlessly. The therapy (total of 2) did not only relieve his back pain, but might have corrected the underlying problem that triggers [it]. —Julie

“Corrected”

It’s my first time to try. It was a pleasant experience despite the correction made on me. I had some back pains when I tried and [they were] instantly relieved after the treatment. —Aileen

“Really feels like I’m more aligned!”

My back wasn’t as strong as it used to be back in my ballet days, but a couple [of] sessions of Karada did the trick to help me eliminate constant aches and pains (that’ll teach me to stop carrying heavy backpacks on one shoulder!). I went to the Galleria branch, and they’re very professional and tell you exactly what to do or what to expect. Kudos to the staff! I really loved how it focused on alignment—[it’s so] different from your regular massage, and really worth the splurge. Looking forward to my next sessions. Will definitely be back! —Carmen

“Solved a problem I didn’t even know I had!“

I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. When I arrived, I was interviewed about which parts of my body ached, and honestly, I had none (or at least I thought I didn’t). I went on with the experience and it was very calming and relaxing. The 90 minutes went by too fast. After the session, to my surprise, I felt a bit different. It was like a great weight [had been lifted off my shoulders]. I felt my posture improve. It was like they solved a problem I never knew I had simply because I was living with it for so long. Very interesting experience. It was painless and relaxing. Would do this over and over again! —Lorenzo

“Thumbs up from my Lola!

The Karada staff really took care of my Lola very well. Her needs were assessed properly, and they were very careful because she has mild vertigo. She was constantly checked on how she was doing. It was very relaxing, eased her shoulder and back pain, and overall a great experience for her. [The] Karada experience [is great] even for seniors. —Dana

“Amazing experience!”

I had a terrible stiff neck for days and it [was] bothersome because I [couldn’t] concentrate at work. This deal just came in time. Perfect timing. I got two and [brought] my boyfriend along with me. It was an amazing experience. And because it was our first time at Karada, everything was surprisingly fun. You can hear and feel your bones crack, then you’ll feel relieved. Will be back soon. Thanks, Deal Grocer and Karada for this awesome deal. —Florence
