About the Practitioner

Elaine undertook her original general, district and intensive care nursing, and health visiting training in London. Following this, she worked in intensive care in hospitals in the Netherlands. She has lived in various parts of the country with her family, working in hospital nursing or health visiting in diverse communities ranging from Nottingham Meadows to South London, and latterly as a health visitor in Quorn in Leicestershire.

In 2007, Elaine graduated from the College of Traditional Acupuncture, going on to further study in:

Shonishin(Japanese paediatric no-needle treatment) – with Stephen Birch
Electro-Acupuncture -with the British Medical Acupuncture Society
Japanese Acupuncture (Manaka System)- a gentle technique using minimal needling

In 2008 she undertook study in Guangdong Province Second Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Guangzhou, China, and now both writes and lectures on the subject of how Traditional East Asian Medicine complements our western understanding f health and sickness.

Elaine finds the oriental appreciation of the deep integration of mind and body appealing as a practitioner. Her clinical treatment style utilises gentle Japanese-style needling techniques with sufficient time for rest in treatments, whilst aiming to work in cooperation with western biomedical approaches.

She is a member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) and is registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Great Britain.
