Elise has been treating babies and children for many years now after completing her Paediatric acupuncture training in 1993 with eminent Practitioner and Lecturer Julian Scott. Over the years she has developed her own style of treating children using shiatsu and massage techniques in conjunction with tiny “baby needles”. Since babies and children energies change so quickly, needles are only momentarily inserted and stimulated and do not have to remain in the points as in adult treatment. Needles are typically left in for around 15 minutes from the age of 11 upwards. Elise has had a lot of success with treating babies and children with eczema, teething ailments, colic, digestive problems such as diarrhoea and constipation, amongst other conditions. Over the years she has taught shiatsu baby massage techniques as part of the treatment session to mums and carers to use on their children between sessions.
