Elma grew upon the Atlantic coast of Ireland where she first became interested in caring for people's health and qualifying in General Nursing in 1983. Having married and moved to London, she started her family whilst training in Midwifery.
After London, Elma went on to live and raise her children in East Sussex. Despite finding that mainstream nursing offered less and less time with each client, her care for people's health was undiminished and she decided that it was time to embark on the next stage of her career. In 2007, Elma went to study at the International College of Oriental Medicine where she gained her BSc Honours degree in Acupuncture. She continued to work within the NHS and gradually expanded her Acupuncture practice whilst reducing her nursing commitments. For the past couple of years she has been happily and busily practising full time Acupuncture.
