Review of Ki-Ways by Kate Marshall, Dementia Support South Lincs
5 08/08/2016 Kate Marshall, Dementia Support South Lincs

I've been working with Ray for over five years and he is a great teacher. He has adapted some of the tai chi moves so they are accessible to our members living with dementia and their carers. Members have reported better balance, it helps with coordination and they say they always sleep better after our Wednesday afternoon sessions. And Ray makes it a lot of fun.

Ki-Ways Q&A

Ki-Ways Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

When I was in training, one of my coaches advised me that what we do is no different to any other professional. He gave the example that when a good builder drives by a house that he has built and feels satisfaction that there is a happy family living in the house and that it has transformed from being a house into a home, he or she can feel justly proud.
I feel similar satisfaction when I see my clients improve their physical, mental and spiritual health and transform themselves from what they were to someone who is living a life that is true to themselves.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Before setting up my business, I was an engineer. I was actually on the cusp of becoming chartered.
In 2006, I founded Ki-Ways because I had a passion for working with Energy.
By 2010, the passion had increased to such a level that I decided that the only true path for me was to give up the engineering and work with my passion in Tai chi, Shiatsu etc. full time.
It was a good decision. Since then, my skills have grown to a much higher level than would previously have been possible and I love every aspect of my work.

Why should our clients choose you?

The service that I offer has all of the qualities that you would expect from professional coaching or therapy - confidentiality, personal, high quality etc..
My specialisation is that I am very effective at finding what I call your Ki-Way. If you unlock it - you unlock the door to yourself.
In the old days if you wanted to learn Tai Chi, for example, you would pay a lot of money and join a large class until you "get it" in perhaps 10 years.
With my more personalised approach, the time take before you "get it" can be 20 times shorter. That is not to say that there are not skills to be learned but if you have the inner understanding then the skills are yours instead of some practiced routine.
The approach uses various "tools", that I also teach to others and is effective for health improvement, wellbeing, meditation, Tai Chi and many other art forms.

Ki-Ways Services

Tai Chi Chuan

Servicing all levels of need. I have been the UK champion for Tai Chi and have written books about the subject. However, I still pride myself on the ability to train and coach the most awkward feeling beginners along with the most skilled adepts


Shiatsu is a healing treatment with origins in Japan. It uses similar theory to acupuncture but I use my hands instead of needles so it is done fully clothed. Shiatsu has been used by myself and others worldwide to help with just about any form of non contagious illness


Meditation has become recognised as equally important to overall fitness to diet and cardiovascular training. We offer many types of meditation and can train you to be a meditation coach.

Energetic Perception Training

If you have ever wondered how to "feel energy" or wanted to check if you were getting it right - this is for you!

Personal Training

Sessions in any of the aspect that I teach can be in personal or private sessions or in group settings.


Acupressure is but one aspect of the art of Shiatsu. I can coach you in how to use different points to release tension, reduce pain and help in many other ways


Shiatsu is a type of massage and to many intents and purposes it can feel very similar. The big difference is that a true Shiatsu treatment will be working with your Chi or energy and the treatment will be effective on more levels than if you have a simple massage

Nutritional Advice

Ki-Ways has a large background in Macrobiotic training and access to some of the top macrobiotic coaches in Europe. If we cannot give you the diet help that you need then we can refer you to other coaches within our network who certainly can.

Healing with Nature

Nature has an enormous capacity to heal. If we can learn how to open ourselves to that healing and receive it then amazing things can and do happen. Healing with nature will be done through specific training and treatments.

Coach and Therapist training

If you would like to learn how to give treatments or Tai Chi lessons we have development programs that allow you to become insured and help you to fulfil your dreams
