Since they opened their first shop in Kyoto in 2008, their waiting list across all branches now exceeds 436,000 people. This popular spa is officially opening in NewYork City (18 W 38th St. / 2nd floor) on May 20th. One of Goku most requested services is their "Zeccho Sleep."

As a result, the mind and brain become totally relaxed, leading to improved health, focus, and lower stress levels. When it's over, individuals will emerge with a euphoric feeling, released from stress. The quality of your sleep may also improve for the next few nights after the treatment. This massage is especially beneficial for people with brain tiredness caused by: stress, over-work, worry and/or constant computer use. Another service offered at Goku is "The Kamiwaza Technique." This head massage technique was developed and refined over with the help of Japan's top health care professionals, from diverse fields including: neuroscience, acupuncture, psychology, and massage therapy. This is a dry treatment, no water, lotion, or oils are used. "Zeccho Sleep has been satisfying people especially who suffer stress and insomnia in Japan. As New York is the city that never sleeps as well as the world capital of finance and business, we are thrilled to open our spa here," said Momoka Yamazaki.
