A Warm Welcome to Holistic Healthcare
“We shouldn’t feel guilty about looking after ourselves”. It’s not selfish, in fact it’s a mark of self-respect.
I am a qualified Holistic and Massage Therapist, also an experienced Energy Practitioner. I am registered with both the RFI (Reiki Federation Ireland) and the IMTA (Irish Massage Therapist Association).
My background for the last number of years has been working with Emergency Medical Technology having qualified as a Paramedic in 2006 through UCD.
I’ve always been drawn to “caring professions” and I really believe in the importance of Self-care, so I began a new journey into the Holistic World!
Self-Care! Well now…… that’s a word that most of us pay lip service to, including myself, but very few of us actually follow through with it properly. We are busy Bees, way too busy. Life is busy and most of us mere mortals are constantly rushing around looking after everyone and everything except ourselves. We push our poor bodies and minds until we are exhausted, injured or ill then we finally slow down! Does this sound like you? Well I know that I’m guilty!
I wanted a new way of looking after my wellbeing and so I spent a few years learning how to meditate, this helped calm the “Monkey Mind” and taught me how I could just “Be”. This is invaluable as a Therapist because I believe in being fully present with my clients.
I then trained in other areas such as Massage Therapy and various Bioenergy modalities.
I genuinely have only trained in therapies that I have both experienced, enjoyed and have benefited from receiving myself. I know how important it is for a client, having given up their precious time and hard earned money, to be completely satisfied with their treatment and to feel that both they and I have achieved their therapeutic objective.
I am passionate about Holistic Therapy and I love the concept of treating the client as a Whole i.e. Mind, Body and Spirit are taken into account during any treatment. My journey working and learning in this exciting field will evolve and adjust as is required and so as I study in new areas that I feel drawn to I will offer clients the chance to experience a wide variety of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments.
Be Kind To Yourself
