Elaine Tomkins


After 11 years as a maxillo facial nurse, Elaine developed an interest in complementary health as she was able to make a positive difference to patients both pre and post-operatively using therapeutic touch. This inspired her to train as an aromatherapist at the Tisserand Institute, London where she was later appointed as Senior Massage Tutor.  She also went on to open London’s first aromatherapy clinic within a dental hospital.

Elaine also works as a remedial massage therapist within various health clinics in London, and also holds qualifications in pre and post natal massage, intra and extra oral massage, lymphatic drainage massage and has trained in the management of post mastectomy pain and rehabilitation after Breast Cancer surgery. Elaine finds it extremely rewarding to see the frequency with which massage therapy is being integrated into mainstream healthcare and utilised in chemotherapy units, cardiac departments, maternity units, GP surgeries and many other areas of medicine. Elaine feels very fortunate to be part of these exciting developments but more importantly, is passionate about empowering others with the art, science and power of touch through her work and teaching.
