7) “I have found the Jade Sun Tai Chi / Qi Gong classes to be really excellent. They have helped me manage my musculoskeletal pain, improve my posture and reduce anxiety. The instructors are friendly and helpful, and the techniques are suitable for all levels of mobility. I hope the classes continue – I’d even like to see them extended!” Padraig

8) “I enjoy learning TaiChi because of the following reasons. The Tai Chi has taught me the importance of slowing down and giving thought to your inner body and its health. The mind /body connection is fundamental to our well being and giving time to this improves our well being. Learning TaiChi  has helped me to further develop my awareness of body tension and this has been of great benefit to me regarding an illness I had some twelve years ago.

I got shingles in my eye and head and would get regular recurrent post hepathic pain and eye infection. The practice of the four principles and lowering the shoulders has become a daily practice and I discovered that when  I have discomfort, this practice reduces the pain.

Thank you for all your efforts. With Kind Regards.” Shirley

9) “I started Tai Chi classes with Laurence Reddin from Jade Sun School, and all I can say is wow! Laurence is such an insightful and patient teacher. He doesn’t just teach the sequence of movements, but also how to FEEL those movements within your body, to calm, relax, strengthen and energise your whole being, body mind and spirit. The classes have definitely become part of my self preservation routine!

I would recommend Laurence’s classes to anyone, any age, male or female because everyone can benefit from Tai Chi!” Phil – Knocklyon

10) “I have been taking Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes for over 1 year. I am the type of person that is always taking new classes. However I find myself compelled to continue with Tai Chi and Qi Gong. I feel happy and relaxed after each class. I have carried out concepts from the class that have been incorporated in everyday life. I feel more connected to my surroundings. I use the 4 principles and the breath to focus me. I will continue my journey.” Melissa

11) “If you know absolutely nothing about Tai Chi, Laurence gives a great introduction, explains and makes sense of it all.  I’ll definitely be continuing with the classes.” Edwina

7) “I would highly recommend The Care for The Self Course with Laurence. I found it beneficial for dealing with the challenges of daily life and a tool to heal and grow. really enjoyed it.” Janette

8) “I recently completed the Jade Sun School ‘Care for The Self’ Meditation program, which was facilitated by Laurence Reddin and I found it very beneficial and really well structured.

It was run over four half days, once a month and I found this breakdown of the course suited me very well, as it gave me time to absorb and practice what we had covered in each module and discover any questions I had before the next module.

I feel that there is great integrity both in the content and the delivery of the course – Laurence is an excellent instructor and facilitator – any questions we had were dealt with in an honest, helpful and engaging way. 

I now have learned enough during the course to be able to practice regularly myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel a huge benefit from it and I intend to bring the meditation into my daily life. 

I highly recommend this course and I want to continue to discover and feel its benefits in my life on an ongoing basis. Thank you Lar.” Rita

Private consultation testimonials

Justin and Laurence have provided treatments in Carrickmines, Sandycove, Rathmines, Co. Dublin and New York and Nashville USA:

“I attended Justin initially with insomnia a few months ago. I have found his assessments to be very thorough and his diagnosis very accurate. Justin brings a comprehensive range of skills to his practice and integrates them seamlessly, appropriately and professionally. He engaged me honestly and compassionately inviting me to engage in my own healing process which I found to be very empowering. My sleep has improved significantly and nocturia which I have had for years is now gone. I would have no hesitation in recommending Justin as a Therapist.”

Ann

“Justin was an incredible instructor who clearly explained the theory and process in the consultation of which I took great value, As a bit of a skeptic to this particular type of thing, I was amazed by the simplicity and logic of the work he offered. I took great value from the consultation and am delighted to have seen how these healing therapies can help me personally”
