Thank you very much for your participation in the 15th International Shiatsu Conference.
On Saturday at the Vancouver Central Library, over 400 people registered and received a shiatsu treatment from the Shiatsu demonstration.
The seminar on Sunday at UBC had over 100 Shiatsupractors and other therapists from all over the world as well as 150 local participants. In addition to this we received congratulatory speeches from various celebrities such as :Consul-General Seiichi Otsuka, Harry Bloy, MLA and Dr. Asae Tanaka, and Kazutami Namikoshi, Chairperson of Namikoshi Gakuen.
The 10 years anniversary reception party at the Hyatt Regency Hotel was successful, that it took longer than the expected 3 hours to accommodate all the guests.
We truly appreciate your cooperation; we will continue to strive in making an effort to contribute Shiatsu in the Nikkei community, and health for the people around the globe.
Your continued support will be greatly appreciated, and we sincerely hope you will take good care of yourself.
