Touch Tuina Practitioner – Peter Nagy

Peter Nagy is another of our most experienced Tuina Practitioners, you can often find him at the Kentish Town Touch Tuina clinic. While there, we took some time to find out more about how he got involved with Tuina and his thoughts on his journey so far.


What did you do before becoming a Tuina practitioner?

I was a basketball coach and physical education teacher.

What inspired you to become involved with Tuina?

Ooo, it’s funny, so I knew Errol way before I started Tuina because Errol’s niece is my other half, so I kind’ve knew a little bit about what Errol does. I’d tried Tuina before as well and I was at the stage in my life where I was like ‘I’m a little bit bored of teaching, I need some inspiration’. I brought my other half for a treatment at the clinic and while I was waiting something just, you know, when something hits you and you’re in the right place at the right time, and with the energy from that moment, I started the journey.

How long did it take to train?

We don’t really look at it in that way, as we always say, I think it’s a non-stop journey and it’s a never-ending journey too.

How long have you been a practitioner?

I’ve been a practitioner for 7 years now.

What do you like about working with Errol & Mariana?

I genuinely like that with everyone who works here, it’s not looked on as work, everybody wants to be here, it’s a really happy and friendly environment and at the same time we are helping many, many people. Also, both of them show us a great example of how you are learning something new every day.

What types of clients do you treat?

Very mixed, so from a young age to older, from professional sports athletes to the general public, there is no specific type.

Why do you think everyone should try a Tuina treatment?

I think it’s a genuine boost to your health, so you should have a go. After you’ve tried it, you’ll know if this is for you or not, did you benefit from it and what your experience is compared to other treatments. I think you should definitely give it a try, because your health and wellbeing is very important.

What’s your favourite part of the job?

Definitely the team, the environment here, and when we see people saying ‘I’ve already tried other treatments and they didn’t help’, then they get up from the bed and wow, they feel completely different! They leave happy and you know they will be coming back again.

Do you have any favourite success stories with clients?

I don’t think there’s one in particular, I love to see the journey in people, even if just thinking about a basic muscular problem, they come in week after week, or even month after month,  I see the great progress they make and it makes me happy. Also, we offer so much more, for example, with Kiniesiology I can see people’s personality change as they go from being low in confidence to becoming much more sure of themselves, more able to make the most of life because we’ve given them something new!
