Genki in Japan - A Panel Discussion on Women’s Health and Well-being in Japan

Thursday May 14th / 7:00 am - 10:00 pm / Members ¥3,000; Non-Members ¥5,000

What types of medicines and philosophies around well-being are there in Japan? What is the approach that suits you best? Which ones should you try out? And how can you find your own mix between traditional, alternative and scientific medicine?

Our panel members Purmina Sharma-David, Shiatsu Therapist & Reiki Master at Lotus Healing, Stephanie Chan from Edward Obaidey Acupuncture Clinic, Claudine Bliah, Gynecologist/​Obstetrician at Tokyo Medial Clinic and Maya Ileto, GYROKINESIS® trainer will discuss the different approaches, their benefits and how they are practiced in Japan. They will also share practical tips you can take home and test on yourself.


About the speakers
Purnima Sharma-David, Shiatsu Therapist & Reiki Master at Lotus Healing
Purnima is a registered member of the International Association of Reiki Professionals (IARP) and a certified Shiatsu Therapist. Purnima was born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. Her MA in international studies heightened her sensitivity to the plight of women around the world, but also sparked a desire to contribute to the wellbeing of women. Her own personal struggles compelled her to pursue Reiki and reclaim her emotional health. Shortly afterwards, she pursued Shiatsu as she saw its profound affect on her mother’s battle with a chronic illness.

Stephanie Chan from Edward Obaidey Acupuncture Clinic
Stephanie has a Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is a licensed massage therapist and acupuncturist, who trained in the US, China and Japan. After intense work years as a health educator and HIV counselor, she was inspired to leap back into the heath care field through the traditional art of acupuncture to treat overall health.

Maya Ileto, GYROKINESIS® trainer, Maya Moves
Maya Ileto is a Certified trainer of GYROKINESIS®, a movement system developed in the 1970s as a way to rehabilitate dancers from injury, but that is enjoyed today around the world by all kinds of people seeking to improve their health and range of movement. A trained dancer, Maya became a GYROKINESIS® trainer because she wanted to teach something that would not only be good for the client’s physical health, but also impart the spirit of dance, which allows both the body and mind to feel free. The rhythmic, flowing quality of the movement system makes it feel very much like dancing, and the movements feel intuitive.

Dr. Claudine Bliah, Gynaecologist/ Obstetrician at Tokyo Medical and Surgical Clinic
Dr. Claudine Bliah studied in Marseille/France and is specialized in obstetrics gynecology at the Tokyo Medical Clinic and the Aiiku Clinic. She came to Tokyo more than 20 years ago. One of her main goals was to simplify consultation procedures for foreigners, in an era, where is was not obvious to find an English speaking doctor. Since 2005 she serves as medical advisor for the French Embassy in Tokyo, and recently was awarded with the „l’Ordre National du Mérit“ of the Republic of France.
