Pharmacist, Holistic Beauty Specialist
Originating from a family of doctors and pharmacists, Mikiko graduated from the Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Sciences in 1993.
Mikiko’s extraordinary ‘Integrated Therapy’ combines traditional techniques from Eastern and Western cultures. Her own special NMB (nerve, muscle, brain) method was created by combining her philosophies on health. Mikiko will listen and guide you through the best treatment tailor-made for you. Her bespoke four-hand treatment is often described as a Life Changing Treatment by her clients.
Mikiko’s exclusive NMB massage can also dramatically alter the face line – her ‘Natural Face Lift Massage’ is an equally effective treatment for those who have undergone cosmetic surgeries as well as those who have not. Using face lifting properties helps the face appear tighter, sharpens the nose line and adds depth and tone to the facial profile. Her natural facial lift massage is referred to as a Non-Surgical-Anti-Aging Facial Treatment.
In addition to holding qualifications in health and beauty, Mikiko is also a qualified pharmacist, having undergone training with the World Health Organization and worked with the renowned Kitasato University Research Centre on leading research projects. Many years of research and detailed knowledge of anatomy and physiology, the basis of this wholly original method created by Mikiko, aims to bring about ultimate beauty by working to activate the body’s nervous system, musculature and brain simultaneously.
In 2007, Mikiko established KINGLEY JAPAN Co., Ltd. and opened a salon ‘Absolu Herbeen’ (which changed its name to Lyvolvant in 2020) in Japan, going on to set up a subsidiary, KINGLEY LONDON Ltd., in the UK in 2011.
Mikiko was a resident therapist at London’s exclusive women’s-only health club Grace Belgravia (2012-2019), and The Lanesborough Club & Spa (2019-), as well as practicing to her private clients including A-list celebrities, models, members of royalty, fashion designers as well as company CEOs and executives by working closely with Dr.Tim Evans, Apothecary to Her Majesty The Queen and The Royal Households, since 2012.
Mikiko’s treatment is available at her salon ‘Lyvolvant’ in Tokyo. Mikiko is highly regarded by patients for her successful combination of advanced techniques and aesthetics
Mikiko has been invited to the Cannes film festival, and exclusive events organised by international fashion houses to demonstrate for their VIP guests.
In addition to her diligence and compassion, Mikiko’s personalised approach to each client results in maintaining an exceptional rate of repeat clients and referrals. Clients receive the highest level of care, from the initial complimentary consultation to treatment.
