In 2014, BEAR HUG launched our new care department.
We have in mind to assist those people who created peaceful and rich time for as after living through turbulent times. We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation so that they are satisfied with their peaceful life. In this department we have the desire to implement and integrate our management policy of “Caring for All People With Affection,” into this department.
On the day I turned 30, I left my home in Hakodate, Hokkaido, by car for Tokyo with the idea of opening the best massage clinic in Japan. After arriving I sold my car and rented a studio apartment in Roppongi. With my massage bed and my own bed for sleeping, I started my business.
Before this when I was 27 years old, my father passed away from heart attack. Because of this I left the company I was working for, Nittsu Shoji, and returned to my home town of Hakodate.
Upon arriving home, I was “welcomed” with debt caused by a tenant building built during the bubble economy. Our home was also held in security as a guarantee for that liability. On top of that there were security deposit problems, two court cases involving money problems, and the auction of the land where our shop was located.
All of this left me with a debt of 900 million yen along with guaranty liabilities.
It would be totally impossible for me to get out of debt just by working for any particular company. So I decided to compete the massage training I have received much earlier in my life. I set my goal to become the best chiropractor in Japan.
I asked myself what I should do to achieve this goal. I approached those individuals who were considered to be the best in this industry. As I met with them, I was impressed that these leaders in this field were eager to learn, had good personalities, and spare no expense in time and money to cultivate human resources.
I still practice and firmly keep in mind those impressions and experiences. I have expanded my clinic. But above all things, the attitude of those at the top of a company should provide a positive influence on the shop manager and other employees. Only remaining firm to continue with this attitude can change the corporate atmosphere, make corporate strategy clear, and enables us to respond to changes over time properly.
I have lost my precious individuals and possessions due to my ignorance and lack of study in the past. I have provided educational training so that each of our staff members can achieve excellent results whenever possible no matter what adversity they might face. At the core of this matter, I strongly hope that they are able to acquire real skills.
Currently, BEAR HUG has expanded our business content from our original massage business to management of Tokyo Sports Training Academy (TSTA), and chiropractic clinics. We are covering general manipulative therapies. I am living through the assistance and support of many customers and staff members I work with.
Based on the policy of BEAR HUG, “Caring For All People With Affection,” we cherish every one of our customers, while extending ourselves 100%.
My message is concluded with my vow to become the best sincere clinic in Japan that can satisfy our customers, with education based on full of love. I would appreciate having your continuous support.
