More Info

Tommy is an ex-tabloid journalist and comic who left behind the world of mainstream media to train in holistic therapies and energetic arts including acupressure massage and tai chi.

Now studying a Masters Degree in Health and Wellbeing, Tommy says:

“I had a problematic relationship with alcohol, and liked to entertain people – sometimes that led me to do wild and risky things. It was only after my third head injury – sustained after a deliberate and dramatic fall while intoxicated – that I made a pact with myself (and any Higher intelligence that might be listening) that if I survived I would change my life.

Later, when I experienced tai chi it was the first time I experienced a ‘body high’ that trumped any mental state previously felt. I always feel refreshed after a session, and am keen to share this experience with others.”
