Chikako Allen

Chikako is based in Tokyo, Japan and Vancouver, Canada. Growing up in a heavily industrial area of Japan, Chikako witnessed everyday how people are affected by severe allergies and asthma. Chikako also experienced her own atopic dermatitis and her family’s history of asthma, dental procedures and other allergies. Chikako is assisting Patrick McKeown on the translation of his highly successful Buteyko book “Close Your Mouth” into Japanese. Chikako completed her training with Patrick and is dedicating herself to spreading the word of the Buteyko method in Japan and Canada.
