Ella runs a general practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine focusing on acupuncture and food energy. She is a Member of the British Acupuncture Council, the Association of Acupuncture Clinicians and the NHS List of Approved Acupuncturists and is an advocate of integrated medicine.
She is part of the acupuncturist team at the Ukraine Project which provides free consultations and treatments to assist refugees and families with trauma recovery.
Her passion for traditional Chinese medicine was inspired by her love of plants and food and then her investigations into how they could contribute to the solution for health and the promotion of natural medicine. Her research into acupuncture and how it could help chronic pain and chronic neck pain led to her decision for a complete mid life career change.
Ella has combined her acupuncture and Yang Sheng lifestyle advice which focuses on food energy, the cultivation of the mind, spirit and body with work, rest and exercise and living in harmony with the laws of nature, to develop bespoke holistic wellbeing treatment plans for each individual. Ella further developed her interest in acupuncture which led to post graduate training with John Tindall at the Yuan Centre in Hastings on the use of auricular acupuncture in trauma and addictions acupuncture. She also became an accredited electro acupuncturist following the completion of training under Stephen Lee and moxibustion training with Tony Todd. She set up a Holistic Clinic combining acupuncture, food energy, electro acupuncture and moxibustion in the treatment of chronic illness and pain. After graduating from City College of Acupuncture (CCA) she undertook a internship at the Trauma Acupuncture for adults and children project at the Ukrainian Culture Center in London. She is member and practitioners for Acupuncture Without Borders (AWB). She also developed bespoke stress pilot programmes for corporate clients having worked in international marketing positions in the City of London and Helsinki for ten years. Ella has a masters degree in Finance, Marketing and Business Administration.
