Elda graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Acupuncture from the renowned College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, awarded by Kingston University.
The degree brings together two schools of practice: Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Elda's approach to help and healing places a strong emphasis on understanding the root cause of each patient's imbalances, allowing her to treat a wide variety of conditions by:
- diagnosing both the person and the complaint
- determining lifestyle factors that may contribute to the imbalance
- creating and implementing an effective course of treatment.
A course of acupuncture may be accompanied by cupping, tuina, moxibustion, gua-sha and auricular acupuncture, tailored to correct a patient's energy imbalance.
Elda is a full member of the British Acupuncture Council (BAcC), which guarantees the highest standards of training and professionalism in all their acupuncturists.
Elda’s grandmother was a healer and since early childhood she has been surrounded by Eastern therapies.
At the age of 18 she developed panic attacks and a course of acupuncture treatments changed her life.
Since then Elda has been on a journey towards understanding the invisible works within the human body.
Before becoming an acupuncturist, Elda had worked as a therapist for ten years, specializing in sports massage, deep tissue, facial rejuvenation massage, lymphatic drainage, pregnancy massage, Indian head massage and reiki.
Elda believes that acupuncture is a key that unlocks our potential for self-healing.
