About Elaine

I qualified as a Great Ormond Street nurse in 1982 and spent many years in a variety of health care settings. In the early 1990s an increasing interest in complementary approaches to health inspired me to re-train as a complementary therapist. This was the start of a fascinating journey which has taught me many things; in my own life and through working with others, I have seen convincing evidence that the potential for healing is unlimited.

Since 1997 my practice has been established in Emsworth, on the Hampshire/West Sussex border, close to both Portsmouth and Chichester. I offer tailor-made treatments for clients in a relaxing and supportive environment. Treatment prices range from £28 to £45 and include aromatherapy massage, Reiki, Sukshma Marma Therapy and Bach Flower consultations.

I am experienced at providing therapies for people before, during and after treatment for cancer, having spent many years as part of the therapy team at a cancer support centre. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this.

What is Aromatherapy?

Sukshma Marma Therapy

This subtle, profound and deeply relaxing therapy has its origins in Ayurveda and is suitable for everyone. It is the result of many years of research, study and practical experience by Dr Ernst Schrott, Dr J R Raju and yoga teacher Stefan Schrott. Sukshma means “gentle”, “delicate” or “subtle” and sessions can include treatment of the back, face/head, hands and feet. Using special essential oil blends, a session involves the treatment of classical marma points and energy channels in the body. Please contact me for further details.

• A consultation gives you the space to explore how you are feeling and the most appropriate remedies are made up into a treatment bottle for you to take home.

• The remedies are simple to use and I will show you how during your consultation. Alternatively, some clients choose to book a session for the sole purpose of learning how to use the remedies themselves…just let me know if this interests you.

• I am able to offer consultations in person, by phone, email or Skype. See the bottom of this page for details.

Elaine - Reiki

What is Reiki?

• Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient form of Japanese energy healing. The Reiki practitioner places their hands on or above your body, whilst you are seated or lying on a comfortable couch. Clients often report a feeling of well being, peace and relaxation after a session.

• Reiki is not a religion or belief system; it is a gentle and safe technique which works in conjunction with all other medical and therapeutic approaches.

• I love to teach people Reiki. Whether you are a complete beginner or a therapist wishing to add to your skills, please contact me for details of Reiki classes and attunements. I usually teach on a one-to one basis or a small group as required so times can be arranged to suit you.

About Soul Midwifery.

Elaine - Soul Midwifery • As part of my own journey I became very interested in working with people at the end of life. I came across a book called “Gentle Dying” (now re-issued as “A Safe Journey Home”) by Felicity Warner, who started the Soul Midwifery movement in the UK. I was inspired by her vision that we can all be supported to have a peaceful and meaningful death. I subsequently trained as a Soul Midwife with Felicity and now offer this approach as part of my work.

• A Soul Midwife is an holistic, non-medical, non-denominational companion to the dying. There is no set way of working - a practitioner draws on a range of skills as appropriate and according to individual needs. For example, a person may wish to have help in thinking about and devising a good death plan; or maybe a Soul Midwife will simply sit with someone and provide a loving presence during their last days or hours. In essence a Soul Midwife listens, creates a compassionate, sacred space and provides gentle therapeutic techniques. The aim is to support someone during the dying process thus helping them to have a loving, dignified and peaceful death.

• Soul Midwives support people in their own homes, hospices and care homes and can also support families and loved ones.

• I understand that this can often be a difficult and sensitive subject to talk about; if you would like further information about Soul Midwifery please don’t hesitate to contact me. (You may also find it helpful to look at www.soulmidwives.co.uk)
