Offering Tui Na massage and energy exercise classes drawing from a variety of tai chi and qigong forms.

With love and dedication to the healing arts that began with a qigong practice over twenty-five years ago and continually training with senior teachers, Max has a passion for tai chi, qigong, meditation and massage.

He has taught a weekly tai chi qigong class at The Isbourne since 2011 having qualified as an instructor with Taoist lineage holder Bruce Frantciz school Energy Arts.

Max practices and teaches Wu Style tai chi and a variety of qigong sets including Dragon and Tiger, Tai Chi Circling Hands, Marriage of Heaven and Earth, The Five Keys and others.

His enthusiasm for chi practices led him to tui na, the massage branch of traditional Chinese medicine and in 2001 he studied to master practitioner level with Maria Mercatis school Bodyharmonics. Max is available for tui na massage here at The Isbourne and at his Home Studio in Prestbury, Cheltenham.

For twenty years Max has sought and found inner peace through meditation. He is a Kadampa Buddhist with a regular practice of listening, contemplation, meditation and retreat and he teaches meditation at Akanishta Kadampa Buddhist Center, Cheltenham.
