One thing about living in Sussex is that we are blessed with a multitude of professional, experienced and dedicated Complementary Practitioners. As a Holistic Physical Therapist of 25 years myself, I am always interested in the various maps and models used by others, and often seek the help of my fellow colleagues and their views when needing assistance with either a client or my own issues. Some practitioners definitely stand out above others. One of these is Irene Elliott who practises in Ditchling in Sussex.I recently sought the help of Irene because she brings to her Practice her 25 years of sound science based nursing experience, her 13 years of Eastern philosophy and practice as a Shiatsu practitioner and Reiki master and her knowledge and work with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). It’s easy to be sceptical or unsure about something that involves tapping and humming and repetition of issues and affirmations and the pressing of certain points on the body (to name a few techniques) but the joy of working with Irene is that she pools all her knowledge of each discipline into each treatment so that her approach is appropriate, personal and professional. Her experience means she is full of insight, relevance and enthusiasm and includes sound allopathic medical knowledge which inspires confidence and trust...and the important thing, is that it works!She helped me enormously, in ways that I didn’t even know I needed assistance and has set me on a different path to recovery that I hadn’t anticipated from my limited perspective. I feel nourished in mind, body and spirit. I can highly recommend Irene as a Shiatsu, Reiki and EFT practitioner. Whatever you need, you will probably get a bit of all of them in your treatment and you can certainly anticipate a positive and helpful outcome. She is warm, friendly and full of fun. She lives as she speaks and is committed to her crafts.
