Welcome!   We all deserve to live the best life we can, and I believe being pain free goes a long way to helping to acheive this.    Everyone is an individual and naturally our bodies respond differently to various treaments depending on where we are at the time. By offering a range of treatments it gives me the scope to give you the best treatment for you.


 I trained in massage in 1998 and have seen the benefits this can bring.  Its a wonderful way to clear toxins, to ease pain and to release tension.  


A car accident then lead me to trying Bowen Therapy mainly because I tried various therapies and nothing was relieving my pain .   I was amazed at how subtle it was and the huge difference it made to me.  I then trained in Bowen so I could use it to help my clients .


I then became interested in light therapy and am amazed how it can change energies and help people with healing.


I like to treat the body as a whole.   When you come to see me, I ask lots of questions and listen to what your body is telling me.  I work out what is going on and then am able to use the treatment that will suit you and your body best at that particular time.       


It gives me immense satisfaction to see the difference it makes in peoples lives and and its a privilege to help.

What my clients say..

My husband and I have been clients at Body Mechanics since 2004. I tried three different massage therapists before finding Elaine, she is a highly qualified professional who we trust and respect. We have recommended her to many friends over the years and will continue to do so.

'I have been going to Elaine now for a number of years and have found her to be consistently professional, competent and capable. I have experienced her massage therapy, Bowen techniques and the Bioptron light treatment. I have always had confidence in Elaine's ability and I always come away feeling much better after a treatment than before.  I have no hesitation in recommending Elaine to anyone considering going to an experienced practitioner who upskills herself regularly and who does a great job!
