THE 5 METHODS' SYSTEM
For your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing The 5 Methods include exercises and practices of Pilates, Kung Fu, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and Relaxation.
These are all body-soul-mind harmonizing practices but each one with a different focus.
- Pilates and Kung Fu are based primarily on the body (structure and dynamic movements).
- Qi Gong and Tai Chi focus on recharge, flow and circulation of the vital energy.
- Relaxation techniques (including acupressure massage) recharge your energy, release tension and calms the mind.
The system is based on the principles of Chinese medicine and Taoist alchemy combining with modern western medical knowledge.
Most people would love to train all aspects of their being, not only their body or mind, but struggle to find time to everything. That's why I selected the exercises in the 5 Method System in such way, so in a relatively short time we could harmonize and train all aspects of our being.
The exercise sequences build upon each other and support each other, which makes the training really effective.
The practice of The Five Methods promotes your wellbeing. Although the exercises of The 5 Method System help keep a good health, if you suffer from any health conditions or illnesses, ask your medical professional's advice first.
Each of the five methods is profound, and most of them are inexhaustible even after a lifetime of practice.
During the regular weekly training sessions and retreats, most of the time is spent practising Tai Chi.
Depending on the composition of the group and individual needs, these methods can be combined individually.
If you are interested in deepening your knowledge in the art of any of the individual practices, just let me know, and we will find a way.
I recommend The 5 Method System to any age groups with any level of fitness, as we can easily taylor the exercises to each individual's needs.

Helps develop a good physical structure and posture. These give strength, flexibility and realignment to the whole body, therefore help preventing injuries, joint problems and various pains due to misalignment, e.g. lower back pain, frozen shoulder, etc.
2. Kung Fu
We continue with the dynamic movements of Kung Fu, which, in this system, we use as a harmonious and joyful cardio exercise, not the combat aspect of it. These exercises are good for the heart and lungs, increase blood flow and circulation, and also help reduce stress and promote happiness.
3. Qi Gong
The Qi Gong exercises are simple movements that are easy to learn. They help access your inner energy, harmonize its flow, recharge your batteries by filling up the bodily structure with vital energy, heal and relax.
4. Tai Chi
During the slow flowing and mindful motion of Tai Chi you experience the pleasant flow of inner energy waves. It is shown to improve the cardiovascular system; physical and energy balance; nervous system; bone density and promotes psychological wellbeing.
5. Relaxing methods
The session includes a short practice of relaxation and acupressure massage release the tension to calm the mind, awaken the spirit and settle the refined energy.
The diagnosis and the therapy in Chinese medicine is based on the Qi, the vital energy. (The Qi is an energy, which connects the body and the mind.) If the quantity and quality of the Qi is sufficient and circulates harmoniously, then the body and the mind is harmonious and healthy. The Chinese therapeutic methods aim to harmonize the Qi by using the treatment of acupressure points, massage, Qigong, herbs, nutritional- and lifestyle advice.
I give acupressure-massage based on Chinese medicine, inculding ear reflexology and teaching harmonizing Qigong excercises.
I organize workshops about the basics of Chinese medicine, the theory behind and acupressure-massage.
Important notice: Chinese medicine doesn’t substitute western medicine but complements it! If you have acute symptoms, please go to the doctor. Chinese medicine and western medicine complement each other, like Yin and Yang. In acute situations western medicine is more efficient than Chinese. If there is no emergency then Chinese medicine can be efficient. If you have a serious chronic illness, please consult your doctor before you take Chinese therapies.
My name is Marton Felszeghy. I am a certified naturopath specialized in acupressure, Chinese massage (Tui Na) based on Chinese Medicine.
I am also a certified Tai Chi and Qi Gong teacher and a Pilates instructor. I have been practicing Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Qi Gong and Buddhism since 2001, and have been teaching Tai Chi since 2005 in Hungary, Germany and England.
I give lectures at the International Massage Academy, Budapest.
My master in Tai Chi, Kung Fu and Qigong is András Havasi.
I have been studying Chinese Medicine from
I have also been visiting the courses of Ismet Himmet,
Liang De Hua and Dan Docherty.
I have been studying anatomy, physiology and I consulted with physiotherapists as I put together the excercises, to build a safe and preventive method.
During 15 years of teaching Tai Chi, I found that students were lacking bodily strength, healthy skeletal alignment and cardio ability, which Tai Chi didn't focus upon. But I found that other practises addressed this gap, like Pilates and Kung Fu, and they benefitted my teaching and practice.
Generally speaking, all these 5 disciplines have a certain focus, however, they don't address certain areas. But together they support and complement each other perfectly, and address the whole being.
So what I have done is to take the essence of each discipline, and put it in a manageable time frame of 90 to 120 minutes that can be used by everyone for their greater physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
I organize 3 to 5 days retreats where every participant gets a 60-90-minute-long session of each method. As a bonus I added to the retreat's programme simple and relaxing massage techniques, the treatment of efficient healing acupressure points and teachings about the basics of chinese medicine and taoist theories.
