Melanie Elliman holds a BSc (Hons) degree in acupuncture and trained at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, where two disciplines are blended. These styles are known as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Five Element Acupuncture.
Melanie is a member of the British Acupuncture Council , which is the main regulatory body for the practice of acupuncture in the UK.
“I became an Acupuncturist having received great health benefits and a sense of well-being in many ways after experiencing treatment myself. My intention when treating is to enable patients to realise their full health potential. I have named my clinic “Shenming” for this very reason. According to traditional Chinese philosophy when a person is in good health they emanate good Shenming. This manifests as a glow within the complexion and sparkle to the eyes when the individual feels well physically, emotionally and mentally, a wholeness where balance has been restored.”
