John Thorne

Offering Tai Chi Movement for Wellbeing, Bodywork for The Mind massage and Spiritual Coaching.

John is a creative and innovative bodyworker, spiritual coach and founder of the Bodywork for the Mind programme offering a positive exploration of the Body-Mind connection through both physical and non-physical approaches.

John is an Advanced Trainer at Taichi Movements for Wellbeing (TMW®); a BTEC and  Esalen certified bodyworker specialising in psycho-spiritual massage; a Sundoor certified Spiritual Coach, and he also holds a certificate in Medical Qigong. John has also undertaken year-long, immersive training with Sacred Trust and Spiritual Companions Trust.

One-to-one sessions with John last between 60 and 90 minutes and maybe a single modality or a blend of approaches determined by client requirements. Folk living with long-term health conditions are welcome either individually or with the support of a partner or carer.

Bodywork for the Mind is the culmination of more than ten years of personal development, and research aimed at demystifying holistic practices in order to guide others to a better understanding of themselves and the environment in which they find themselves.

John’s personal journey has included life-changing medical intervention, and he firmly believes in the innate healing power of the physical organism, with its connection to the wider environment of Nature and Community. He also acknowledges that the human mind can sometimes overwhelm its physical host and that through practices like TMW® the physical can help to retrain the mind.
