I am a founder of "NPO Chebura". I support menopausal women, providing essential and helpful information and exercise routines. Chebura was founded in 2014, we have delivered support to 25,000 people so far. We conduct lectures and seminars nationwide, including companies, municipalities and medical institutions.
What I do
I support menopausal women and provide useful information and exercise programs. Our vision for the future is to expand our activities so that all women can receive support.
I was a stage actress. I wanted to pursue expression, so I learned the mind and body. Later, I became an instructor in postpartum care. However I often hear the mental and physical upsets of women in their 40's. I remembered that my mother was depressed by menopause. In 2014, I conducted “questionnaires on menopause” over more than 1000 women. I developed programs and I founded Chebura for menopausal support, and continue to activity.
Make the world smile with menopause support.
My motto is "fun, healthy and useful."

Hello, I’m Kyoko NAGATA. I’m founder of NPO Chebura in Japan. We support menopausal women, providing essential and helpful information and exercise routines.
What is image about menopause do you have? Hot flush, feeling of irritation and anger, unstable emotional state?
Many people have negative images.However, menopause is an opportunity for us to face our mind and body. I named the group, Chebura, meaning "the change of life”.
I do this activity for main two reasons.
First - As a fitness instructor, I saw and heard from my works about serious mental and physical disorders of over 40 years old.
Second-My mother had a serious menopausal disorder. She became depressed. Of course, family members are serious too.
I overlapped these two memories and thought, "Is there menopausal support now?"
I researched it. I also asked various people. There was none and I was surprised. At the same time, I thought, "If it doesn't exist, let's make it!"
In Japan 90% of women feel symptoms during menopause. However, there are few support for menopausal women in Japan. Women only have to endure.That problem has a big impact on the home, workplace, and society as well.
Japan is now in the era of people have 100 years of life, and the declining birthrate and aging population are progressing. That is a big problem.
Our efforts to support menopause, which is a milestone of health, have also affect nursing, medical, and social security problems. Menopause support was a challenge that had been missing from society.
If we can increase the number of healthy women, society will be better. I will help change society with menopausal support.
