The philosophy of nikken

Nikken history

Nikken is a fusion of two Japanese words:

• Nihon – Japan
• Kenko – Health

Nikken’s story began in 1975, Isamu Masuda created a product inspired by the uneven floor surface of traditional Japanese thermal baths, designed to stimulate the soles of the feet. With the aim of helping people suffering from tired and sore feet, as well as heavy legs, the KenkoInsoles® were born.

In 1989, Nikken opened its first offices in the United States. Tom Watanabe, who initially joined Nikken as Director of Training, later became President and CEO of Nikken. Nikken’s concept of Absolute Well-being then spread across the United States, then to Canada and Mexico. Mr. Watanabe already sees that Nikken and its growing product line can make a difference in lives – Nikken USA then begins operations.

The 90’s
Mr. Watanabe becomes President and CEO; the concept of Well-being spread to the whole of the United States, then to Canada and Mexico.

Nikken launches operations in Europe from its headquarters in Milton Keynes, UK, which Anthony Chaplin joins to establish operations in Europe. The company started out on a small scale but very quickly crossed national borders. By the end of the 90s, Nikken was already expanding into Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Finland, France and Ireland.

As Nikken grows, new products expand its range. This decade also saw the completion of construction of its international headquarters designed exclusively for Nikken in the newly developed Irvine Spectrum region of South Carolina.

Today Nikken is one of the most prestigious direct selling companies. We offer a unique line of wellness products, designed by specialist research teams, and have millions of satisfied customers in more than 40 countries around the world.
