Our values and goals

The founders and owners of DaiKai (Anita Kavlie, Ph.D. and Finn Dalheim, Siviling.) wanted to create a City Retreat aimed at helping our customers relax, stay well and in particular prevent stress-related illnesses. Our focus is on prevention, not treatment of already existing injuries or illnesses. We aim to be an evidence based, reliable, family friendly and environmentally and socially responsible company.

Our retreat in Arbins gate 11 in Oslo opened in March 2006. Today we have more than 20 full-time therapists and we are the largest massage retreat in Scandinavia, performing about 20 000 massages per year. DaiKai therapists all have a solid massage education, the majority have a Bachelor degree in Physical Therapy or in Traditional Chinese Medicine with additional training in massage, and many years of experience.

Daikai Sponsorship Program

DaiKai has a policy of sponsoring associations and non-profit organizations with gift-vouchers as prizes.

If your association has an event which you would like DaiKai to sponsor with a gift voucher, please send us a description of the event by email to reception@daikai.no

Our gift vouchers for NOK 890 can be used for selecting any 60 minutes treatment (with one therapist) from our menu. We also have gift vouchers for 90, 120 minutes and customized amounts.

Daikai Everyday Hero of the Month Program

Do you know about someone who deserves a special encouragement in form of a gift voucher from DaiKai? Someone who has quietly done a lot for others, without much recognition or any other reward for helping humans in need? Daikai would be more than happy to contribute with one of the gift vouchers for such heroes.

Please send us an email to reception@daikai.no with your nomination and a precise explanation for your choice. Each month, we will anonymously select the person who we think deserves it most and contact her or him directly to reward with our gift voucher.

Special Occasion Celebrations with Daikai

Birthdays, weddings, engagements, jubilees or some other special reason for celebration? Our exclusive, spacious suites for 2 persons, the Silk suite or the Pearl suite with elegant theme designs, can contribute to an unforgettable experience. Our receptionists can help you select just the right combination of massages from our menu of Chinese Tui Na, Japanese Shiatsu, classical (Swedish style) aroma oil massage, Chinese style aroma oil massage, facial massage, head-neck-shoulder massage and Chinese foot massage (reflexology).

A group of friends or colleagues or any combination of up to 12 persons can also sit together and experience a joint, social massage experience simultaneously in our foot massage area.

A party of 20 persons can receive various types of massages simultaneously in a number of rooms, or a party of up to 40 persons can receive treatments in two consecutive sessions, where one group can relax with tea, fruit and quiet conversation while the other group in turn receive their massages.

If you send us an email to reception@daikai.no with your planned date, number of persons and budget, we will be happy to share information on right set of packages for you.

Daikai Corporate Offers

At Daikai, we offer wide range of gift vouchers for the massages, in different prices ranges, suitable as a gift for employees and business associates who are interested in health and wellness.

Many have been surprised at how enjoyable a social experience it has been to sit beside each other in deep armchairs and enjoy a foot massage simultaneously. A joint visit to DaiKai with customers for an hour of foot massage is a good way to start or end a business dinner or a demanding negotiation, especially suitable together with customers who do not drink alcohol, or want to reduce alcohol consumption.

For national, annual meetings, congresses and similar, we can arrange a visit to DaiKai included as a popular option in the program for groups of companions.

DaiKai is also a modern alternative for increasing solidarity at work in form "team-building". We have plenty of space for groups of 25 people or more, and can for example offer combinations where participants rotate between treatments and seminars / lectures with various relevant angles. Contact us by email reception@daikai.no if you are planning a special event where we can help to create a customized quote.
