I’m Elaine Otrofanowei, but just call me Elaine. I’ve practised as Podiatrist for 36 years and for the last 14 years as a Complementary Therapist in Leigh on Sea, Essex
I’ve realised for many years that conventional medicine does not have all the answers and that an integrated/holistic approach seems to get much better results. I experienced this myself when my body decided it wanted to enter the menopausal stage of my life early and using a combination of complementary therapies, nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes and functional testing worked wonders for me.
I use these same tools to help my patients to realise their dream of parenthood or to improve painful or irregular periods or help them through pregnancy related issues.
I have a first class degree with honours in Acupuncture from UEL (undertook my dissertation on Polycystic ovarian syndrome and the possible physiological mechanism behind its use) and professional qualifications in reflexology, massage and stress management. I have also undertaken several continuing professional development courses in nutrition, women’s health and fertility, IVF techniques and functional medicine
All therapies are carried out in a relaxing and caring environment. The practice provides the highest standards of care and attention to clients from the surrounding local areas of.
For the last 20 years I have provided a Podiatry and more recently complementary therapy service for Ford Motor Company at their Dagenham plant but I predominantly practice Acupuncture and Functional Medicine from my treatment rooms in Leigh on Sea Essex.
