Qi Gong with Christopher David Handbury

TCM Practitioner Christopher Handbury has been studying Qi Gong (pronounced chee-gong) for over 12 years and teaching patients and students locally for the past 8 years.

During his time Christopher has used Qi Gong to treat Sciatica, Back Pain, Neck Injury, Shoulder Damage, Digestive Issues, Anxiety, Post Viral Fatigue, Arthritis and Symptoms of Fibromyalgia.

"My experience of pain and illness started at a very young age and life has given me a few serious injuries along the way too. I have tried many methods over the years and nothing has ever matched the results that Qi Gong has given me!

Since I began practising Qi-Gong, illness and injuries don't affect me as much and most ailments have now healed entirely. Every day is a much happier experience now."

C Handbury

The classes provide a much needed solution to modern illness and emotional stress by releasing physical tension and injuries.

Once the body is free of blockages and restrictions, the energy channels (commonly known as meridians) of the body are free to transport and transform the various functions that maintain a health body and mind.

This natural healing process can be a profound experience for some, it can also be regarded as a fantastic daily medicine for others.

Qi Gong is a gentle and flowing practise which makes it suitable for all ages, shapes and abilities. The main goal of classes is to provide the three fundamental needs most people require. These are...

  1. Less Pain
  2. Less Stress
  3. MORE Energy

Qi Gong is a COMPLETE holistic health system that helps to balance the functions of the body and mind to bring harmony to everyday life and strengthen our resistance to future illness and disease. Qi Gong has all the benefits of Tai Chi, Yoga, Pilates and much , much more!

Meditation with Mandy Johnson

Holistic therapist Mandy Johnson brings her amazing energy to the clinic with a series of nourishing meditation sessions and short courses.

Mandy Johnson is a busy Head of Drama and discovered meditation as a way to combat stress. Meditation helped Mandy to become a calmer and more focused person, adding a whole new dimension to her everyday life.

Mandy wanted to share this amazing life skill with her students and with others so the next step was to undertake Meditation Teacher Training with the British School of Meditation.

"Meditation allows the mind to have the freedom to be still, the body then gains very deep rest, and releases accumulated stress. I look forward to sharing this unique healing experience with you."
