Training and Experience:
Elly Nickson trained to become a physiotherapist at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
She then worked for about 3 years in various hospital departments and in an industrial clinic.
She was the physiotherapist in charge at a rehabilitation clinic, where in addition to patient care, she developed team work and group leadership skills.
In the psychiatric clinic she developed various relaxation techniques and a deeper interest in working more holistically with body, mind and spirit. The industrial clinic developed her interest in preventive and postural care and ergonomics in general.
She moved to England 1975 and started working in private practice, opening her own practice in 1979 where she has worked with aches and pains, postural problems, stress and other psychological problems.
In all of her working situations Elly has undertaken further training through courses dealing with muscle function, mobilisation, manipulation, relaxation, group leadership, deep memory processing and other related subjects.
