Elaine Riche's photo

My journey in healing and complementary therapy began in 2000 when I completed accredited Touch For Health training in Kinesiology in Champigny sur Marne in France. Shortly afterwards I was inspired to study reflexology, having personally experienced the benefits of treatment. I trained with Josephine Gallagher in her New Beginnings School of Reflexology in County Tyrone, Ireland.

I have completed a yearlong training in Gabor Maté's Compassionate Inquiry certifying in February 2020. I am passionate about this trauma informed aspect of my work and the benefit it brings to all my clients.
Compassionate Inquiry offers another level of understanding, which allows the transformation of limiting and often unconscious beliefs that directly impact the mind and the body. A change in perception enables a shift with immediate effect on physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

I am acquainted with various forms of compassion based practices from the Buddhist tradition as well as interfaith philosophy. Whilst working in Dzogchen Beara Buddist Centre in West Cork, I met and participated in retreats and teachings from teachers and lamas from around the world.

I have benefited greatly in attending annual training and retreats with Miranda Macpherson whose work has helped me on my personal spiritual path and given me deep insights into the spiritual origins of disease and inspirations on helping my clients heal.

I feel deeply privileged to work with people on their healing journey and grateful to the teachers and experiences that have led me to this work.
