and NEWS Mail--August 2018 Issue
This year I took my summer vacation one step ahead of everyone else.
I went to Okinawa with my family, where we enjoyed the beautiful blue sea and green forests, eating delicious Okinawan food, and just relaxing. We had a luxurious time.
The rest of Japan was experiencing the rainy season then, but the weather in Okinawa was very good and every day was sunny. In all, we spent a happy time there.
I’d like to tell you about Fukugi Tree Street, which was the place that impressed me most in Okinawa this time.
“Fukugi” is the name of a tree; in Kanji it’s written “福木”. It’s said to be a tree that brings happiness, and it’s also known as a power spot in Okinawa. I felt really healed there.
From now on I intend to do my best with all my strength.

The top diet method that made waves in New York finally reaches Japan!
You’ll feel so light it will seem as if you’ve grown wings.
As we age, our neck, shoulders, back, lower back, and toes constrict and bend further from their original (“zero”) position. This causes our joints and muscles to clump together, making it hard to move naturally. In this way, our body ages and we gain weight.
Zero Training is a ground-breaking diet method that returns parts of your body to their natural position (referred to in the text as the “zero position”), improving your figure, shedding weight, and even improving various other conditions.
When author and developer Tomomi Ishimura released this method in New York, she immediately garnered fame.
“After trying Tomomi’s exercises, my waist shrank by 3 inches (about 7.5 cm) in one hour!”
“After starting the exercises, my hips rose in just 5 minutes! I couldn’t believe it!”
“When I did stretches that Tomomi recommended, I grew
1 inch (about 2.5 cm) taller! What sorcery is this!”
As Tomomi became more and more famous, Hollywood stars, announcers, pilots, lawyers, pianists, athletes, and executives alike began taking private lessons with her.
Her clients have even included a pregnant woman, a 90-year-old and a 7-year-old.
This Zero Training method that became popular out of New York has now arrived in Japan in the form of a book. Zero Training is a ground-breaking method that can be done in 5 minutes, and all exercises can be done while lying down, putting very little strain on the body. Because of this, it can be done at any age.
This book is recommended to those who have physical conditions and trouble dieting.
After four weeks, your body will feel so light it will seem as if you’ve grown wings.
Chapter 0 Feel so light it will seem as if you’ve grown wings
Chapter 1 What happens when your body is reset to its zero position
Chapter 2 How far out of position are you?
Chapter 3 Give Zero Training a try!
Chapter 4 Zero Training will instantly make you taller
Chapter 5 Bring me back to zero
Zero Training consists of 7 exercises including 1 breathing exercise, 5 “loosening” exercises and 1 “tightening” exercise that can all be done lying face up without changing the body’s position.
Most diet programs include a lot of standing, sitting, using chairs or lying down, but finding the determination to keep up with such demanding programs is difficult when you are tired. Zero Training can be done easily anytime while lying face up, even if it’s just after waking up or right before bed.
Moreover, the fact that it’s easy isn’t the only reason why Zero Training is done lying face up. Lying face up assures that your body is in the correct position, and that all parts properly return to their zero position to improve poor posture and body condition. It’s both easy and effective, and the joining of these two aspects is what makes Zero Training so special.
The book contains 144 pages in full color. It’s light, at just around 260 grams, which is fitting since the purpose of the book is to make you feel so light it will seem as if you’ve grown wings. It’s made to be easy to leave open and look at while performing the exercises. Please enjoy!
