Hello, My name is Alan Hughes and I would like to tell you about my practice Connect With Chi.
Firstly a little bit about myself.
Throughout my working life I have been a goldcutter in Birmingham, where I was born and lived until I was 20 years old. I then joined the Armed Forces and served with the Royal Marines Commandos for 9 years.
I then became a police officer in 1979 with the Devon and Cornwall police serving in both Devon and then moving to Cornwall  in 1988 where I live.
I was always interested in martial arts/self defence and one of my police roles was being a Training Sergeant and self defence instructor.
I retired from the police in 2004 after 25 1/2 years service where I rejoined the police as a civilian self defence/firstaid/law instructor.
I retired in November 2014 where I have concentrated my time in developing my holistic practice.
I became interested in internal energy and healing practices many years ago through my experience with Martial Arts. I wanted to learn and experience another dimension in order to maximise my own energy and self healing capabilities.
Initially I learned and practised the art of Chi Kung (Qigong), which means "Vital Energy" and then about 13 years ago I started to learn the art of Tai Chi and further develop Chi Kung with my present mentor Bob Denny 8th Degree Master in Chinese Martial Arts.
Throughout the years I have gained much experience and later became an Advanced Instructor running my own schools in Cornwall.
I also became interested  in treatment practices and using my energy positively in order to treat myself and others.
I then studied Reiki with Rodney Louis-Smith who took me for my Reiki Levels 1 and 2 and in 2009 I became a Reiki Master/Teacher.
I later became a Shiatsu practitioner and more recently in 2012/14 I studied Chinese Massage and acupressure with BSY and gained a diploma(Distinction) in Advanced Chinese Massage and Acupressure.
The services I am offering are very varied and can be given as individual treatments or as a combination. The main purpose of my practice is to maintain and maximise your overall health and well being, physically, mentally and spiritually.
If you are interested in any of the treatments/practices or require any further information then please get in touch. (See Contacts Page) or ring Alan on
