Healing Light Festival Therapist Peter Smith


Peter C K Smith RSHom FSHom – Registered Homoeopath, Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner & Director, The Gentle Muscle Release Academy.

How long have you been a homoeopath?

I have been in practice as a therapist since 1982/3. Whilst training as a homoeopath, I also began learning the first of several Light Touch Therapies. Having originally run a Wholefood Shop in North Cornwall (“Nutters”), I learned quite a bit about herbs, vitamins and minerals and the Homeopathic Tissue Salts. I have been a whole-fooder since the early 1970’s. To find out more about me visit my website.  

Having used these Light Touch Therapies since 1983 in 2017 I launched The Gentle Muscle Release Academy, whose aim is to spread the benefit of this to masseurs and bodyworkers (78% of who will hurt themselves via wear-and-tear during their careers). Simply put: it teaches the brains of the patients to deliberately release their own muscles … painlessly. This enables the bodyworker to use their existing skills more effortlessly.

I was elected a Fellow of the Society of Homoeopaths in 2017.

Do you practice any other therapies?

In 2010 I began my study of Jin Shin Jyutsu which is a lovely energy-balancing system which I use extensively in my practice! I host Self-Help workshops here in Cornwall – visit my Facebook group to find out more.
