Harumi Noguchi

Harumi has been practising phytotherapy for over 25 years, and is a Zen Breathing advisor in the Tokyo and Saitama area. As a child, she was constantly sick, and often had to take days off school. Although Harumi’s health improved after she discovered phytotherapy, she found that her condition still wasn’t perfect. Having suffered from asthma and empyema since childhood, Harumi noticed that she was breathing unnaturally through her mouth. A friend recommended that Harumi should try Zen Breathing, and she hasn’t looked back since. Although breathing through her nose was difficult at first, she was able to improve her technique with Yuki Shiina's guidance. As a Zen Breathing advisor, Harumi now aims to share her experience with others. She hopes that others will also be inspired to take control and change their lives, just like she did.
