New therapist brings EFT and massage to Frome acupuncture clinic

The range of therapies now available at Element Health Clinic has been boosted recently with the addition of experienced and skilled practitioner, Gwen Corbet.

Gwen moved to the local area last year from the Netherlands, and brings with her the dual skills of therapeutic massage and counselling with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Her business, Life-Balance, has been steadily growing over the last few months and she is now excited to be able to offer her services at the new clinic in the centre of Frome.

The focus of Gwen’s practice is achieving a balance of both body and mind, as one clearly has an effect on the other. She uses her 15 years of experience as a massage therapist to treat the body, and also uses her unique skills as a counsellor to address emotional issues that might be leading to ill health or dysfunction.

Gwen said, “Having, last year, made the decision to move to this beautiful part of the world, my husband and I feel thrilled to now have the opportunity to live and work here. I’m overjoyed to be working from Element Health Clinic, complementing the acupuncture and Chinese medicine that Martin John already offers.”

Element Health Clinic was opened last September by local acupuncturist and herbalist Martin John in Turnpike House on Bridge Street, Frome. The clinic offers professional treatments to the Frome community and will further benefit from the addition of Gwen’s therapeutic skills.

Martin said, “I’m delighted to welcome Gwen to the practice, as it broadens the therapies available – both approaches complement each other very well. My practice treats a huge range of conditions from hormonal and digestive issues to pain management, both acute and chronic. Having Gwen offering therapeutic massage and/or counselling works really well alongside my acupuncture and herbal medicine.”
