About Paul Houghton

My name is Paul Houghton. I am a qualified Holistic Therapist (VTCT, IIHHT, ICHT) based in Warrington, Cheshire.

In addition, I am a practitioner of the ancient Chinese self-healing art of Tai Chi, Qigong and Hatha Yoga with over 35 years teaching experience, classing myself as both a teacher and student of the Eastern healing arts and philosophies.

I am a registered teacher with the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain and also with the Lian Gong Shi Ba Fa Association UK, as well as Cheshire Yoga Teachers Association (CYTA).

In addition to being a Holistic Therapist I am a Master teacher of Reiki healing, holding a Master Level 3rd Degree in Usui Reiki and a Master Level 2nd Degree in Karuna Reiki.

Ancient Chinese healing arts

I believe that the beauty and health aspects of the ancient arts should be available to all members of society and as such I teach to all levels of experience regardless of age, experience and ability. To further my development and knowledge of the ancient Chinese healing arts, I have trained with some of the most regarded teachers within their fields.

Lian Gong Shi Ba FaPresently, I am studying Lian Gong Shi Ba Fa with the UK’s Chief Instructor Kevin McQuaid and medical Qigong Master Dr Bingkun Hu, who resides in America and is a disciple of the late Grand Master Yang Meijun, a famous Chinese Qigong Master and 27th sole inheritor of the famous Chinese self healing system of Wild Goose “Dayan” Qigong.

I have developed a following of these ancient self-healing systems to a level where I teach professionally.

Regular classes, workshops and seminars focus on using Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga’s fluid movements and deep breathing exercises as an extremely effective, practical tool in the fight in combating everyday physical and mental stress found in our modern society. In order to achieve this I use an extremely effective combination of these systems along with using relaxed concentrated visualisations and meditations.

Holistic wellbeing

I also offer Holistic wellbeing sessions, involving no exertion on your part! These sessions are the ultimate way to wash away the day-to-day stresses, from a relaxing yet invigorating Indian Head Massage to Shiatsu, Swedish Massage and Reflexology that involve advanced pressure point releases, stretches and neuro-muscular movements that help loosen and soften those tightly knotted muscles that just will not let go.

If you are interested in private healing sessions or private Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga or meditation classes, do contact me and together we can ensure wellbeing for your mind, body and soul.
