About Karin Elgar

Karin has been practising as a nutritional therapist in the Greater Manchester area since graduating in 2004 from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition, London. She is a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the voluntary regulatory body for complementary therapists which is endorsed by the Department of health.  She is also a Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM).


Karin specialises in women’s health and autoimmunity and sees clients at her own office in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, and the Body & Mind Therapy Centre, Mossley, Lancashire, with daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments available.  Karin offers telephone consultation although the initial consultation should be face to face. Please e-mail me for more details of clinic venues and times.

Prior to becoming a nutritional therapist Karin completed a Master’s Degree in Biology, a PhD in Physiology and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years.

In her spare time Karin loves exploring the great outdoors, hill-walking, rock-climbing and travelling. She also enjoys cooking and gardening.
