Dear colleagues,
On behalf of International Biophilia Rehabilitation Academy, I am pleased to extend my heartfelt greetings to my friends all over the world in holding IBRC 2017.

It is my honor to be one of the chairpersons of IBRC2017 with Prof. Aleksandra Zebrowska and Prof. Dariusz Jastrzebski.
There were eventful conferences to look back on and the most memorable one was in Fujisawa in 2005 which was entitled "The retrospect and regret on the proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques" chaired by Dr. Fukui who is a famous rehabilitation doctor in Japan. Since then we have proposed the innovation of rehabilitation medicine.

I was afraid to become "EI ingenioso hidalgo Don Quixote de Ia Mancha" in high probability because of my decision in my mind to restructure the rehabilitation medicine in 1987. We have been studying the innovation of Rehab. Medicine by studying integrated study subjects such as Rehab. Medicine, Engineering, Social science and Public Administration.

I have no doubt whatsoever that I am not 'Don Quixote'. Because the World Health Organization sent us the presenter last year. And we could show the result of our studies of Motivative exercise on the brain.

We hold IBRC 2017 with the Health resort Ustron, Academy of Physical Education and Medical University of Silesia under such progress of research in Ustron, Poland this year.
I wish that IBRC 2017 is useful for the progress of the related studies and becomes a fruitful meeting for participants.

In closing, I express my gratitude as a president of International Biophilia Rehabilitation Academy to all persons who work hard for holding IBRC 2017.

Thank you!!
