Tokyo Wellness

Even though Japan is a very industrialized nation, the longevity of Japanese people is amazing.  This is primarily attributed to their lifestyle, the excellent national health care system that they have, and most important the food that they eat and the tea that they drink.  Japanese are very conscientious of what they eat and tend not to overeat.  A Japanese meal is extremely balanced because it tends to have the right vegetable mix containing certain vitamins and minerals that are believed to be beneficial for specific organs in the body and drink a variety of teas that are believed to contain antioxidants which promotes better health and prevents cancer and heart disease.  In addition to Japan having an excellent health care system, Japanese are also into many kinds of alternative medicines such as ancient Asian herb medicines, massage therapies, martial arts, acupuncture, etc. that adds to their long and healthy life.  More recently Japan has adopted western wellness activities such as exercising at a local health club, running, yoga, a variety of dances, Pilates, chiropractics, etc.
