Instructor Biography

Peter Caughey, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Teacher & Writer

PETER CAUGHEY

“My mission is to help people break free from limiting belief stories that stops them from living their true potential as a human being and, my gift as a Healer and Teacher is to help people discover the true essence of who they are and to live their life with abundant freedom.”


Hi I’m Peter Caughey, a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 

Teacher & Writer.

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.
