Nora Franglen has devoted many years of her life to the practice and teaching of five element acupuncture. She is convinced that an understanding of this particular branch of acupuncture should be passed on to as many practitioners and lay people as possible.

She studied under Professor JR Worsley over many years, first as an undergraduate student at his college in Leamington Spa and then as a postgraduate student. She ran a busy acupuincture practice from her London home. For 12 years was the Founder/Principal of the School of Five Element Acupuncture (SOFEA) in London, where many she trained many students in the principles of five element acupuncture. SOFEA closed its doors as an undergraduate institute in 2007, and it now continues to run postgraduate seminars in this country, in Europe and increasingly in China.
