This course is a collection of exercises that helped me significantly with my dyslexia and the functioning of my brain.
I have dyslexia and as a child it was difficult, my school years were ones of embarrassment as I had trouble with reading, writing and comprehension. I was brought up in an era where there wasn't a lot of understanding about dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
The major change happen when I went to an organisation in New Zealand called SPELD NZ to help me with my dyslexia. Receiving one on one tutoring helped my mind function more effectively and I was introduction to Brain Gym type physical exercises, which I believe had a remarkable effect on my brain functioning power. This lead me to complete a Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture and three other diplomas in Chinese medicine.
In this course some of the exercises are modified versions of Brain Gym exercises and others are exercises I have learnt over the years and have found to be very effective in helping brain functions in patients and students.
I am a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an acupuncturist, a medical Qigong practitioner and a Taiji (Tai chi) and Qigong teacher. I have been practising Taiji and Qigong for over 25 years and TCM and acupuncture for over 17 years.
I have put this course together to help other people who may have learning disabilities similar to my own and by practicing these exercises it is possible to have the same life changing effect - like they did for me.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using Qigong exercise to increase brain functionality for thousands of years.
During the course you will learn:
1. The differences between ADHD, ADD, Dyspraxia, Apraxia & Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
2. You will learn the signs and symptoms of Dyslexia and ADHA.
3. You will be able to complete a test to determine whether you or your child shows any symptom of these conditions.
4. During this course you will learn 25 different exercises that could help you or your child's brain functions, memory, comprehension and cognitive power.
Enjoy the course and if you have any question please ask through the course contact details.
Lastly I hope you get as much from these exercises as I did - they changed my life.

Hi I’m Peter Caughey, a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine,
Acupuncturist & Master Qigong Practitioner.
I love helping people break free from their stories that I believe make them unhappy, discontent and unwell. I’ve helped people from all around the World to break free from these stories and I’ve discovered that most of us have similar patterns and beliefs that are limiting us from living our full potential as a human being. During my combined 25 years of teaching Taiji (Tai chi) and Qigong and treating people in my Acupuncture Clinic, I have learnt about how to create a higher quality of health for people and how to break their limiting belief stories.
I have dedicated my life to helping people to have a higher level of health and I encourage them to see the World in a different way. A way that inspires them to enquirer into the possibilities of how they can have a more fulfilling and happier life with a flow on effect that benefits and helps others.
I didn’t start out this way as my background prior to healing was 16 years with the New Zealand Amy and 7 of those in the (SAS), New Zealand Special Forces. I loved the mental and physical discipline in the SAS. I became a weapons and explosives instructor, and an advanced medic. I also learned Hand to Hand combat and ended up teaching many different ways to incapacitate an opponent. Now I do exactly the opposite. I was a two packets of camel cigarettes a day man and could down a bottle of scotch in a sitting. I’m not saying this to impress you, I just want to share where I started, as I didn’t come from a background with an awareness around health or any spiritual wisdom about life.
I became interested in Chinese Medicine at the age of 28 when I went to get my first acupuncture treatment for a long term neck injury from playing rugby. After the first treatment I felt incredible and I was amazed at how a few small needles could make me feel so good.
