Body worker and well-being therapist working with health in a holistic way to support and guide people to their optimum health.’

My name is Elaine West and I am a fully qualified Shiatsu Practitioner and a member of the Shiatsu Society UK with over 22 years of experience as an energy and body worker, I integrate this knowledge into my bodywork to deliver bespoke treatments tailored to my clients individual needs.

Areas of specialism:

Relational Shiatsu, Quantum Shiatsu, Shiatsu for recovery, mental health and well-being. Reiki master, reflexology and Holistic massage.

Being very intuitive, I combine all of these unique skills in order to be able to best facilitate and guide others in their own healing and personal health and wellbeing. Led by the wisdom of your body in relationship to mine, through which I listen and attend to your body’s needs, witnessing, holding, and moving it in a responsive and supportive way. I believe in the body’s innate wisdom to heal, and aim to be a guide for this transformation.

Areas I have supported people with include but are not restricted to:

  • Anxiety, life transitions, shock, loss or other emotional issue affecting wellbeing
  • Back, shoulder or other physical pain, tension or injury
  • Relaxation and creating space for the body to heal
  • Stress symptoms – digestive complaints, anxiety, exhaustion, insomnia, headaches, ME
  • Shoulder, back, neck, jaw and other muscular tension and discomfort

I continue with my own personal development work, and receive regular support and supervision. I am passionate about personal transformation, wildlife, animals, and the natural world.

I have also completed many transformational/shamanic training including the NOW programme (Nature of Wisdom) using the Equine facilitated learning techniques taught by Epona quest.

I love dancing, singing, writing and having fun!
