About Rika:

Originally from Japan, Rika moved to Cairns in 2019.

Rika has qualifications in Nutrition and has previously worked in the hospital and aged care environment. Rika has a strong desire to help people with what ails them. She will work with the client to identify what may be causing the issue and formulate an appropriate treatment plan for long-lasting results. Rika is proactive in her own effort to maintain her body and fitness. This led her into her massage journey.

Rika got into massage after moving to Australia and discovered she had a passion for remedial massage and the benefits it provides people in the management of their pain. Rika is always working to improve her skills to give her clients an effective treatment.

In her spare time, Rika enjoys cooking and keeping fit through exercise on the beach.

Rika is a member of ANTA.



Rika is available Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

At Cairns Performance Massage, our massage mantra is that massage should not ‘hurt’. It may be uncomfortable (due to the tight muscles resisting change) but an overly strong approach is not always the answer. Muscles sometimes need a more encouraging approach to let go and provide the relief the client is seeking!
