With over 18 years experience in the healing arts and performance enhancement, Elaine brings a wealth of knowledge, compassion and warmth to her treatments and training programmes.
Originally trained in the hotel and catering industry Elaine became interested in complementary health and personal development during the mid 1980's when she was working and travelling abroad.
In the early 1990's, while working in New Zealand, she was introduced to Reiki treatments as a way to help reduce stress. Impressed with the results her interest in Reiki continued and she completed her Reiki Masters training with the Reiki Network in 1993, becoming a Reiki Master Teacher in 1995.
Travelling and teaching around the world Elaine was at the forefront of establishing Reiki in South Africa in the mid 90’s. She has trained hundreds of Reiki practitioners and many Reiki Masters who are attracted to her down to earth approach and her highly intuitive, yet well thought out, teaching methods.
Elaine served on the Council of the Reiki Network helping to establish the constitution and methods of teaching. She was also the key developer for the BABTAC Reiki 1 and 2 course modules, as well as a Mentor for many Reiki Masters developing their own teaching manuals.
Expanding her interest in simple and natural approaches to health care Elaine has also qualified in Massage and Aromatherapy, EFT - or Emotional Freedom Technique and added the innovative therapy of BodyTalk to her expertise in 1996, becoming a practitioner and trainer in the system until 2001.
After retiring from the BodyTalk Association to pursue her own intuitive process, she took the BodyTalk principles and developed her own offshoot which she calls BodyMind Balancing, using this dynamic method in her practice ever since.
Drawing directly on techniques and treatments that have worked for her personally, Elaine has also created several simple to learn courses and techniques to further help and inspire other people to reach their maximum potential.
