Zen Arts Wellbeing Centre
Fee: £300 - including refreshments
(Open to Certified or Qualified Therapists)
Last A-Way weekend has been transformational once again. There is this indescribable feeling that arises whilst working with A-way or receiving an A-way session and that just feels so good!
Working as a Physiotherapist was already very satisfying to me. Now, A-way is the miracle juice that pieces everything together, for an enhanced experience for the client and myself.
I enjoy the simple and profound approach that Tim provides whilst learning A-way. Besides the freedom and principles which Tim offers there is also an easy to follow structure available to work with and move from with confidence.
I would like to recommend A-way to all people who are already working as a Healthcare Professional, in Alternative/Complementary Healthcare or if you are interested to help yourself and others with having a healthier and happier life.

One of the aims of A-Way Therapy is for the practitioner to learn how to work on themselves and others. As therapists it is important to take care of ourselves and avoid depletion, burnout and picking up anything negative through working with our clients.
Through many years of training in Chi Kung, Tai Chi Chuan and Therapy I learnt how to manage and regulate my energy for the benefit of myself and others, and this became the bedrock of what I do.
In this foundation course I will be passing on A-Way Therapy techniques and skills for working on self and others, including evaluation techniques to locate blockages and ways to release them. We will look at how habitual breath, posture and movement patterns create problems, and how to work to resolve them.
You will also learn specific techniques you can use on yourself and others to release held tensions and improve the quantity and quality of your energy.
This course is the first step to working with A-Way Therapy on self and others. At the end of this course you will go away with practical things you can use to develop your skills and work on others. One of the things I love about A-Way Therapy is that it does not look to restrict you to one style or method of practice. Instead, you can incorporate it into what you already do to give you more tools to work with when you need them.

Over the last 20 years he has taught courses, workshops and classes, as well as working with individuals to overcome unhelpful habits, conditioning and blockages to release illness and pain, and improve mental clarity stamina and sustain the energy, enjoyment and resilience required to get the best out of life and work.
His simple, relaxed, focused and passionate approach has enabled people from all walks of life to experience the joys of being in the driving seat of their physical, mental and emotional health, comfort and success.
As a practitioner of the methods he teaches, Tim continues to research, learn and redefine the best and most simple methods available to provide everyday, noticeable results and finds thought-provoking ways to pass them on in a tangible, grounded and absorbing style.
Appreciating that there is no ‘single’ approach to wellbeing, Tim started to explore and share skills, knowledge, growing edges and excitements as he worked on clients. There was a wonderful energy about the exploration, a tangible ease that naturally progressed into the synergistic bodywork therapy, A-Way. The sharing and excitement continues as he constantly explores his passion, Energy, Touch and Healing.
A-Way sessions are designed to support each client according to their
energetic, physical and emotional needs.
What you’ll learn
One of the primary learnings of A-Way is how we can be present in the world, without carrying the baggage of unnecessary physical and emotional tensions.
