Online Consultations Available
Do you suffer from an internal turmoil, anxiety, insomnia or pain?
Do you have chronic or acute injuries?
I can help.
How can I offer effective solutions to your anxiety, digestive issues, pain or whatever ails you?
Simply because I can address the root cause.
All health issues in the Body or Mind are ultimately caused by disharmony. There is usually both an excess (e.g. your bowels do not move as they should, or you have a chronic phlegmy chest) and a deficiency (e.g. your blood circulation is impaired and you have week muscles) that strongly contribute to what you experience. Digestive issues usually contribute to mental problems: be it anxiety, panic attacks, or low moods.
The diagnostic tools of Chinese medicine:
- tongue inspection and under the tongue inspection
- pulse diagnosis inspected in multiple positions on both wrists
- ears’ inspection
- hands’ inspection, and
- the signs and symptoms (and any blood test results or other tests you may have),
allow for a good introspection and understanding of what is bothering you. I will apply a fine analysis to get a holistic picture on how to prescribe herbs that will bring a lasting change.
I also offer ONLINE CONSULTATIONS.
Herbs are prescribed based on all the signs and symptoms, photos of the tongue, under the tongue, ears and hands, and all relevant information. Herbs are prescribed as a concentrated powder, soluble in water, enabling you to make a herbal tea. The herbs are ordered from a Herbal Pharmacy in Manchester (HerbPrime) and delivered to you, anywhere in the UK or in Europe, by post.
How do I know it will work?
Because I see it happening in practice. Anxiety, pain and ailments are easing off and disappearing, over and over again.
Because I have been studying Chinese medicine from books, Chinese doctors and the best herbalists-practitioners in the World.
Because Chinese medicine offers a profound understanding of various ailments on both psychological and physical levels.
If you are unwell, the whole Body conveys this message, although each part may show a different angle of the problem. Reading body signs has been in practise for thousand years, and even now, when blood tests and other tests are available, the body signs will still show the core issue, as if behind the scenes.
The blood test results may be all fine, but you know you do not feel well. When combined with the current knowledge, herbs can literally ease the most difficult situations.
Your body is naturally powerful to mend and heal, but when a part of it gets stuck into an inhibition or nerve excitement, it needs help to overcome the challenge.
The solution is to encourage the body to heal within by addressing the disharmonies: easing the excesses and addressing the deficiencies.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy that is used to awaken the body’s natural processes to ease pain and encourage healing. It involves inserting extremely fine, sterile, single use needles into specific points in the body. These points have been found effective in relieving pain or for the treatment of specific health issues.
One of the discriminating features of a healing massage is the quality of touch that communicates loving attention, understanding and anticipation of the unknown. Essentially, it is the awakening touch that comes with a strong intent, as it happens in Tui Na, Cupping or Gua Sha massage. When combined with the knowledge about fascia and connective tissue as well as that of nervous and vascular systems (as affected by Acupuncture), it stands up to the promise of liberation from pain, stagnation and stress.
Singing Bowl Massage helps one relax and calm the nervous system.
Nutrition and Herbal Medicine reach our Core, the working of various systems in the body. They are capable of modulating and changing how the organ work. They work on a deeper level when there is a deficiency of nutrients and the lack of communication between the organs.
The therapies offered here are:
Acupuncture is an ancient treatment that involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. It is used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions.
Acupuncture works powerfully by adjusting the nervous system, improving blood flow, stimulating stem cell release to injury sites, and helping various body systems to become active.
Even if some slight discomfort is initially experienced, this eases into a deep relaxation or even a rejuvenating nap.
Facial acupuncture relies on inserting super fine needles shallowly into the wrinkles. This method can reduce wrinkles, eliminate fine lines, lift sagging skin and improve skin colour and texture.
There may be a slight initial discomfort followed by a deep relaxation, as the stimulation of the peripheral nerves will improve blood flow to the skin and head.
TUINA / Massage Therapy
Tuina medical massage involves the rubbing and kneading of soft tissues and muscles, together with acupressure and finger work, as well as assisted manipulations (similar to the ones in osteopathy) to remove blockages along the sheaths of connective tissues. It works on the nervous system and the wellbeing of the internal organs as well.
Singing bowl massage
Gua Sha, called also scraping, is a healing massage therapy that uses a smooth edged tool to repeatedly scrape an area of lubricated skin. The goal is to intentionally create therapeutic petechiae called ‘sha’. The sha is because of the leakage of the blood in the subcutaneous tissue (beneath the skin). Raising sha opens pores and improves blood flow.
A single gua sha treatment can lead to an immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, cough or nausea. It works well for acute and chronic organ disorders.
HERBAL MEDICINE / NUTRITION
Diet or lifestyle often contribute to the symptoms of ill-being, so it is important to address them. The changes to be suggested are meant to make the treatment more effective. Even where a treatment works very well, if the person returns to the same behaviour that caused their complaint in the first place, the problems will return.
Proper nutrition and herbal medicine are one of the most effective methods of improving internal organ function. Food choices can be optimised to improve the functioning of specific organs both by foods to eat and those to restrain from.
Coaching helps you to get insight into your current health and life situation and work actively on your personal skills. You will identify obstacles and learn new ways of thinking and dealing with situations and/or feelings. You will push back your limits and open up new possibilities.
MY GOAL IS TO…
- help you heal and be well
- support the process of change and
- encourage you to live a Zesty life
It comes naturally when communication channels are open and informative between the Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual aspects of Selves.
It is never a fixed state but always changing – a dance in life.
Pain, either physical or emotional, is real. It is a sign of stagnation. Stagnation is created by a blocked flow of nutrients on some level in your body. It may affect muscles, tendons, lymph, blood and organs, or it may cause a vicious circle of thoughts or emotions.
Chinese medicine recognises how blood and lymphs (and energy) are trapped and discriminates between the organs to find out which ones are contributing. Once the cause of disturbance is understood, a treatment to restore wellness can be applied effectively.
My goal is to help from inside out. Your reservoir of wellness can be restored thanks to the therapies offered here. It is the quality of sound, needle, touch and listening, together with the strong intent, that will make the difference for you.
I am here to help you get well physically, mentally and emotionally.

What THE cLIENTS say
and why they get better
“I have had two sessions with Ela so far, which involved a detailed chat about my health and my medical issues, a relaxing and soothing massage followed by acupuncture. Ela is very welcoming and professional, and was incredibly informative, she talked me through the process and why it works the way it does. She also gave me some really useful information on some herbal remedies for me to try out at home. I certainly feel that I benefited from the sessions, and have already recommended her to friends of mine.”
“I felt so relaxed and the treatment was excellent, she worked on muscles I was having problems with. This was the best massage I have had and will definitely be having another one.”
“I had a medicinal massage from Ela that I found completely relaxing and I truly believe improved my well being. I left feeling more relaxed and positive about life. I can highly recommend Ela!”
“After having put up with the pain for a long time, I reached the point when the pain became unbearable. I developed tendon pains and neck pains as well. Luckily, I’ve found Ela and she was able to ease my pain. After the massage and heat lamp therapy, my pain was gone for good and never returned. I immediately felt lighter and happier. I see Ela regularly to keep myself well and to release the tension built up by stress.”
“I felt listened to. It was very holistic. I was given some good common-sense health advice. Ela was very professional but friendly. I felt that she knew her treatment very well and practiced it confidently. This made me feel confident as well.”
“Mummy Ela is always helping me with all aches and pains in my body. I especially like the pinching on my back and the rubbing of my tummy. It is sometimes ticklish. Even my headaches are gone when mummy rubs my head and neck. I also like the singing bowl put on my body as it gives beautiful sounds. She also makes (herbal) teas to help me feel better.”
