Elaine has lived and worked all over the world.  She was born and raised in Hong Kong and has worked in London, Hong Kong, New York, and Singapore.  Elaine spent a decade in the corporate world of advertising, marketing and market research.  She also spent the later part of her corporate career conducting leadership training and executive coaching for government and multi-nationals.

Elaine discovered Reiki 30 years ago and was delighted to have found such a powerful self-healing technique.  She became a Reiki Master in 1995 and juggled teaching Reiki with a busy corporate career.  She stepped away from her corporate career in 2007 to set up The Reiki Centre and has since dedicated her work to teaching Reiki and advocating for high quality Reiki education free from dogma.

Elaine has trained thousands of Reiki students and over 80 Reiki Masters via her vigorous Teacher training program.

She is author of “Reiki, Pure and Simple” a down to earth and accessible introduction to Reiki, and shares many resources and articles on her blog and YouTube channel.  

Her latest book "Reiki - A Path to Freedom" outlines the spiritual aspect of Reiki that is often side-stepped or forgotten.  Reiki is essentially and originally a spiritual practice based on self-knowledge, as Usui (the founder of Reiki) put it, Reiki is "the secret method for gaining happiness".

Elaine provides comprehensive online Reiki classes, hosts a thriving online community for energy explorers and is currently expanding the Reiki Centre philosophy, co-creating with country specific Reiki teachers to provide in-person classes - beginning in Singapore.   


Elaine takes an active interest in developing Reiki.  She is a founding member of The Usui Reiki Association, Singapore (TURA), and has authored two global Reiki consumer research projects, the latest one published in 2020.
