First Aid Course (including CPR & AED) in Tokyo

MEDIC First Aid®

About Me

My name is Kanae Kono. I am the owner and lead instructor of Wellness Roots. I spent most of my 20’s in Beijing. After that, I worked for Apple Japan as a supply planner for 14 years. Although it was absolutely exciting to be part of Apple, it was during that time that I learned the effect of stress on the body and the connection between the body, mind and spirit. That was why I had no hesitation in changing my career to become a Naturopath and dedicate my life to the health of others when I discovered Naturopathy. 

On completion of a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) degree in Australia, I came back to Tokyo and started Wellness Roots as my own practice. I have taken many international first aid programs in the past 10 years as it is mandatory for healthcare practitioners but I have never had such a comprehensive and well-designed first aid program in real life situations as that offered by Medic First Aid (MFA). Yet again, I had no hesitation in becoming an MFA instructor when I first took the course. 

It is my hope that through our training courses you can learn to help your loved ones, colleagues, and strangers in an emergency situation.
