Zen Styled "Private" Space

K’s is a small boutique salon in a cosy quiet laneway. The space was created with “Timeless” in mind with custom made furnishings and natural materials for you to be able to totally reset. 
To keep your serenity, we only take 1 booking at time (except for the couple booking), and every care is taken just for you.


To appreciate and focus on providing the personalised treatment,  we ask you to fill in the counselling sheet to know your scalp/hair/headache concerns on the first visit, and select the best suited products for you. 


We stimulate different parts of the head which corresponds to different parts of the body (Japanese shiatsu-massage). So the head massage benefits not only the scalp but also overall health.


Located in the heart of Cairns city – enables you to get totally refreshed during your lunch break or spare time, before or after tours. (booking recommended for us to provide you the best service).
No fuss – you don’t need to get changed to a spa gown or take make up off.  

Head Spa


Because the scalp continues to the facial skin, head massage helps to reduce facial skin sagginess. It give a natural face lift and radient complexion.  Also, neck and shoulder lymphatic drainage theory based massage helps to reduce puffiness of the face, give it a sharper outline, as well as making the neck smoother and firmer .


Lots of us approach HAIR to improve issues such as loss, damages, no shine etc while neglecting the scalp. However, remember that healthy, beautiful plants only grow on healthy soil.  The scalp is the soil for your hair.
Our “Soda” gel and water  not only removes oil stains, excess sebum (scalp oils), dirt and dead skin cells but also helps to stimulate blood circulation and helps transport oxygen and nutrients into the hair roots.  A clean scalp promotes healthy-looking hair with great volume. It is also proven that the carbonated hot water removes alkalinity which most perm & hair colour products promote, then returns the hair to its original mildly acidic condition. It treats damaged hair from chemical treatment or hair colouring, and leaves the hair with a beautiful finish.

In Japan, the hands have been treated as a gift to boost human’s natural healing ability. (Reiki for example).  Gentle hand massage around brain will relieve tension in the central nervous system which promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

Soda water (we use for the treatment) gives you the same therapeutic effects as carbonate hot springs which are recognised by medical experts for excellence in blood circulation, boosting immunity and balancing pH on the skin (it is even covered by health insurance in Germany!). 

Living in your head disconnects you from your body and from grounding yourself. A head spa directly yet gently works on your crown & the third eye chakras so that you will be more deeply aligned with your highest good. As a result, it will help you to be centred and more aware of your perspective on life. Clearing your head will also help improve your work performance.
Approaching the brain by gentle touch promotes autonomic nerve function which provides a deep relaxation like no other.

Took my partner for the couples scalp and hair rejuvenation. Was a beautiful, relaxing experience (and he loved being pampered too for once!). Would recommend 🙂

My mother and I had a very relaxing time at K’s Japanese Head spa. Keiko really takes the time to provide a truly relaxing and personalized experience to the highest quality. The spa itself is very beautiful and relaxing in a quiet area. The products are of really high quality and Keiko is excellent at massaging and treated my hair very gently. Afterwards, my hair felt much cleaner and softer and I felt less stressed. I recommend everyone should also have this experience at K’s Japanese Head spa!

Absolutely amazing spa experience, I had never tried a Japanese head treatment before but would definitely do it again. Very calming and informative about your hair Keiko is lovely and really takes the time to pamper you. Beautiful salon nestled in a cute little alley way. I got my treatment as a gift and would recommend for gift vouchers for someone.

K’s Japanese Head Spa is the ultimate luxury treatment in the most relaxing calm and zen environment with caring and kind staff. It is an amazing experience and you will be kicking yourself for not booking in sooner. The salon is lovely and in a central location. My hair feels very soft and smells great, not to mention how relaxing the whole experience is. I dragged my partner along for a treatment and he said that this was super relaxing and he almost fell asleep. Each treatment is personalised specifically for you and what you need. Highly recommend! You can try on your own, with a friend or partner. Thank you K’s, we will be back soon! 🙂

I had such a relaxing visit at K’s. Keiko has beautifully designed the salon with a tasteful Japanese zen theme that made me feel instantly calm and relaxed. Even the walls were painted with hemp charcoal to create an authentic feel!The cold soda gel treatment felt amazing and Keiko specially chose a shampoo and conditioner that would best suit my hair for the hair washing part of the treatment. I nearly fell asleep it was so relaxing! I have very long, curly hair and Keiko showed me on a microscope that I had a bit of oil buildup on my scalp, but after my treatment my hair felt amazing and we checked again with the microscope and the buildup was gone. My hair was so soft and my curls were so defined and knot-free :)I’d definitely recommend for anyone wanting to improve their hair or just have a relaxing experience!
I was absolutely impressed with the quality of service and professionalism this Japanese head spa could offers ! My scalp massage and spa was amazing and if feels better now ! So great so good 👍 I would highly recommend this spa to anyone ,,, definitely I would come back !

I stumbled across this site, wondered what Head Spa was all about so investigated and after reading the menu thought I would give it a try. The owner and the store is very inviting, it was a lovely experience, apparently head spa’s in Japan are a big thing, Ive never heard of this before. Its a shampoo and condition with so much more thrown into the the mix, head and shoulder massage, scalp cleansing, aromatic oils, my hair smelt and felt amazing afterwards.
