Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful treatment today Irene.  I feel like I’ve almost floated through the day and my shoulder feels better than it has in weeks.  I’m so glad that I found your brochure and had the chance to meet you ... it was a very special part of my journey here. ☺️

I came to see Irene only this week after being ill since before Christmas and having an incredibly stressful year. She was very kind and helpful and did reiki healing on me.
The following day for the first time in over 2 months I can breath freely, no congestion, no tight chest.
I actually feel the best I have felt in months.
So thank you!

I first went to Irene when life had got too much. I run a business, I have a disabled 8 year old, a 2 year old and had just moved house. My mind was full, my feet ached and I needed some help.

I struck gold! Irene just met my needs. She added a bit of Reiki and a bit of Shiatsu and was able to address areas of real pain. Each time I left I felt relaxed, revived and had some pointers of how to help myself. Irene got me back on track and now I go for a monthly MOT! I felt very supported and as though she really listened and knew what I needed. I look forward to my sessions and how I will feel after.

Thank you for all your help and getting me back on the right path!

Finding Irene has been an absolute god-send. Apart from being highly knowledgable, experienced and professional, she is a genuinely lovely, kind and caring lady who really wants to help. The shiatsu and reiki sessions I’ve had with her have left me feeling relaxed, calm and given me time for me. Highly recommended.

Irene is amazing - she made me feel so at ease while at the same time being very professional - she really knows her stuff! The Shiatsu session really made a difference and I will definitely be returning for more...

I have worked with Irene as a colleague both in the NHS and in complementary therapy and she's knowledgeable, sensitive and a fine practitioner. I have great respect for her as a person and therapist

I can not recommend Irene highly enough. I have had a few treatments with her and she is amazing. She genuinely cares, and tailors the treatments to my health issues. Irene is incredibly knowledgable and has helped me beyond what I thought possible. Thank you Irene.Jude

I came to see Irene for a relaxing experience to help me unwind as I’ve been dealing with a lot of stress recently. Irene was welcoming, attentive and clearly very knowledgeable in how to get energy moving in the meridians of the body. A lovely experience and I’d definitely recommend going to see Irene for a Shiatsu session.

Irene came to my house to give me 2 x 1.5 hour sessions of EFT, that helped me to clear deep blocks, give me the boost I needed but also empowered me to practice by myself. Irene's manner is down to earth, funny and relaxed. I love her shiatsu massages too!

Irene has a caring, down to earth and professional manner, and her reiki and shiatsu treatments are relaxing and powerful. She provides thorough feedback and will go the extra mile to recommend lifestyle changes and support you to implement these. She brings her extensive nursing experience to her work, making her a trustworthy and knowledgable practitioner with a deep understanding of both western and eastern approaches to health and healing... a gem!

I've had this fear for falling and when I say fear, the moment I step out of the flat all I am thinking is "I'm going to fall, I'm going to fall".

However I have had falls, just so you know, I'm only in my late 40's so it's nothing to do with my age.

I even was thinking of buying a walking stick to support me, it was that bad.

I then met with this miracle lady, Irene Elliot she is one miracle you have to experience.
I had a session with her on guiding me to get rid of my fear of falling and the next time I got out of my flat, I did not even think about falling whatsoever.

Nothing at all, it didn't even occur to me, the thought didn't even come to my radar.

My fear has disappeared, gone!

She was thorough from the session I had with her and very in-tuned.

She's a miracle worker.
Thank you Irene, you're amazing!xxx

EFT is a very powerful technique, which as I now use it on my own, continues to surprise me with its effectiveness. It is difficult to describe this simple and improbable, but potentially life changing, therapy.

Irene is highly insightful practitioner. The extension of her practice to EFT seems a natural progression, using the depth of her knowledge, both of shiatsu and our general physiology, and her warm understanding human spirit.

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.

I have had 4-5 EFT sessions with Irene now both in person and via Skype.I found that Irene was very skilled at getting to the root cause of my various issues quickly and with amazing outcomes. I am an EFT practitioner myself but sometimes it takes another skilled practitioner to point out where your issue is stemming from and Irene did just that. I would highly recommend booking a session with her, even if you are skeptical about EFT. You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome!

My body has been through a tremendous amount of stress over the past couple of years. When it was first suggested I tried Shiatsu, I had pre-conceived ideas and, to be honest, was a bit skeptical about it! It wasn't until I met Irene and she shared her wealth of knowledge that I realised I was just being ignorant and so I booked a session with her! My body thanked me for it. That night I had one of the best nights sleep that I had had in a long time. Irene is such a warm, caring and knowledgeable lady and I felt totally at ease with her. She is also an ex-nurse and therefore not only are you in safe hands she also knows a lot about the human body too!

I was pushed into going to Irene by my daughter who recognised my over-stress and extreme exhaustion caused by far too much work over a long period of time. And was I pleased! It was really, really, great. I had never experienced shiatsu before and had no preconceptions. I just wanted to feel better. And better I was.

Irene could not have ben more in tune. She was extremely warm and welcoming, she took time to let me know talk and to explore what I wanted from the session. The actual treatment was surprisingly gentle, but really powerful - I had very strange tingling sensations in my arms in particular and felt energy surges that were extraordinary given how little on the surface seemed to be going on.

Irene warned me I might feel tired and a bit spacey after the treatment, but I didn't. I felt a curious mix of increased energy and relaxation - and that lasted for several days, before work once again kicked in.

I really, really recommend Irene, both in terms of her whole approach and attitude, and also her results. And once my much-needed holiday is over, and work has thankfully calmed, I am going back, to once again refresh my body and my spirit!

I recently was having stress issues and saw an advert for Shiatsu. I decided to give it a try and I was not disappointed. Irene is so friendly and easy to talk to, and she quickly put me at ease. I had one treatment and felt considerably better. I followed up with a second treatment and have not looked back. I can't say that I understand what went on but know for sure that I benefited greatly from it. I shall certainly visit with Irene again.
