Kit Laughlin studied oriental medicine during a five-year stay in Japan and, on his return to Australia, was the Japanese ambassador's personal shiatsu practitioner. In 1988 he was asked to treat the prime minister of Japan during his visit to Australia, the first time a Westerner had been asked to provide such a service.
Laughlin was awarded a Master of Letters degree in 1992 from the Science Faculty of the Australian National University, and currently is doing research for a Ph.D. dissertation in which back pain is the key case study.
Laughlin originated the Posture & Flexibility and Strength & Flexibility courses that have been run by the Australian National University Sports Union for the last eleven years. Assisted by fourteen teachers whom he trained, Laughlin has taught these courses to thousands of students of all ages and levels of fitness, with proven results. He is the presenter of the acclaimed Overcome Neck & Back Pain seminars and the author of a forthcoming book, Introduction to Posture & Flexibility.
