Chris Davies - Guest Lecturer - British Acupuncture Federation

We are lucky enough to have Chris Davies teaching specialist CPD’s. Chris lectures all over the world as well as for associations and schools such as BAWMA, CMIR, Acumedic, AACP, EMA, FETC and the NHS. His passion for teaching and improvement of techniques has enabled him to specialise in areas of Tendon Healing, Aesthetic and Cosmetic procedures as well as old family and ancient acupuncture treatments.  His talks on psychotherapies touch and change people’s perceptions at all levels, and he coaches many successful business owners and entrepreneurs.
Having acquired over 45 therapeutic qualifications as well as numerous medical and health qualifications Chris offers talks and public events as well as lecturing to Doctors, Nurses and teaching Professors to help better understand methods of healing.
Chris began studying Japanese Ju-jutsu at age 18, through which he was also introduced to a range of physical and psychological therapies. Inspired by these he started studying Swedish massage in 1991 leading onto sports massage and deep tissue techniques.  Shortly thereafter he discovered Chinese medicine under guidance from Master Chu and went on to study Tui-Na; a medical massage involving manipulating bones and muscles, then living in Taiwan, China and Japan

He continued his study and was introduced to the energy healing arts of authentic Japanese Reiki and in 1999 Spiritual Healing under the guidance of John Quigley and John Eddington who progressed him onto his journey into psychotherapies and emotional therapeutic counselling. It was during this time that Chris collated his knowledge on various therapies which lead to him recognising the shared link between the body, mind and disease.

Meanwhile having progressed in the old style ancient martial arts these now started focusing more on the internal healing arts such as Qi-Qong and Falun Dafa as well as Japanese Ki and the micro cosmic orbit. Chris went on to study at the source of many techniques and older style traditions in Bali, China, Taiwan, and Korea as well as many times in Japan whilst also continuing to expand his knowledge under many modern more well-known names and gifted experts like Dr Tan, Dr Wang Ju-Yi, Tianjun Wang, Stephen Birch, Susan Johnson, John Howard and Terry Oleson. After studying with Japanese family masters as well as well-known Chinese masters such as Yang Jwing-ming and Mantak Chia in the internal arts Chris’ journey came full circle and took him onto furthering his training in traditional Chinese acupuncture and external herbs.

His interest in Chinese herbs and internal medicine led him to look at old historical diets as well as modern nutrition looking at the key factors affecting diet and the makeup of the body. Chris lectures on this regularly in relation to health and modern disease. Chris is an NHS certified Phlebotomist and therefore can take your blood and have this analysed for obvious deficiencies in vitamins, minerals and hormone imbalances which may be due to your diet and nutrition.

He subsequently developed an interest in cosmetic acupuncture which grew and led him to train under 14 of the world’s best cosmetic acupuncture teachers. His understanding of tendon and ligament healing has vastly added and improved many of these cosmetic techniques. Having qualified in beauty and cosmeceutical applications his cosmetic acupuncture and cosmeceutical course is one of the most innovative and comprehensive currently taught, applying a deep understanding of the skin and tissues. He is among the highest qualified cosmetic practitioners who teach true cosmetic acupuncture not being taught or used elsewhere.

Chris is also a sports performance coach understanding many of the physiological growth issues not commonly taught by personal trainers as well as expert at resolving psychological blocks with techniques used by specialist Olympic coaches for over 40 years, many of which are only now being made available to the general sports public. Quoting Chris; “Most people are cruising during their routines and not pushing themselves into new limits because of warning markers the body gives as feedback about the current exercise. Once you understand these markers and how large they are in the human body as opposed to gorillas and other animals, you can push these markers back, eating into this safety limit and improving way past what you thought possible”. Chris specialises in running, weight lifting and dynamic sports but also has worked with many other sports and non-sports clients to help them move forward with their goals. His clients are coached on many levels including sports psychology, physiology, sports technique, body dynamics, physical therapies nutrition and diet and he is currently working with various sports teams around the country.
