Nora Franglen studied modern languages at Cambridge University and worked as a freelance translator whilst bringing up her family.   Her own experience of five element acupuncture led her to study acupuncture at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Leamington Spa, and she continued her postgraduate studies there under J R Worsley.   She was the Founder/Principal of the School of Five Element Acupuncture (SOFEA), which offered undergraduate training in five element acupuncture from 1995 until 2007.

She is the author of ‘A Simple Guide to Acupuncture: the Five Elements’, published in 2001, ‘The Handbook of Five Element Practice’, published in 2004, and ‘Keepers of the Soul: The Five Guardian Elements of Acupuncture’, published in 2006.   (Click shop for details.)
