I developed an interest in holistic therapies from a very young age. Growing up in the countryside I always had an interest in nature and natural healing. I have always held a belief that true healing is the healing of the person as a whole, not just the body but the mind, the emotions and the soul also. 
 
I studied holistic therapies for two years and spent a further year studying spa therapies. I continue to add skills and knowledge constantly through various courses. I now hold qualifications in anatomy and physiology, Body massage, Indian head massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Sports massage, Tui Na, Lomi Lomi massage, Lomi Lomi pregnancy massage, Hawaiian Spirituality, Functional osteopathic technique,Thai yoga massage, Hot stone massage, diet and nutrition and stress management. 
 
I have worked in a 4 star spa for two years, Dublin’s largest holistic centre for 7 years and opened Drogheda holistic centre in 2017  
 
Prior to the treatment I discuss with my clients what they would like to achieve from the treatment and I see if they have any particular problems or concerns. With this information I can customize the treatment specifically to suit the client. This makes each treatment a unique experience.
 
If you are unsure as to what treatment to choose you can call for a free consultation and we can find a treatment to suit you best.

My interest in energy and bodywork started while studying beauty therapy 10 years ago, I was amazed by the physiological and psychological benefits of massage and I quickly became fascinated by the human body, mind and spirit. From my early teens I suffered with anxiety, chronic pelvic pain, debilitating periods, digestive, urinary and other reproductive issues which has been treated as suspected Endometriosis. Therapies such as reflexology, aromatherapy, Lomi Lomi and Thai yoga massage were very beneficial for easing physical symptoms such as pain, nausea and inflammation, as well as balancing my hormones and emotions.

Through my studies I came to realize that a lot of my physical and emotional symptoms stemmed from the same place and it was then I understood the connection between mind, body and spirit. I needed to nourish mind and spirit as well as my body: I changed my entire lifestyle: what I ate, drank, thought, read, listened to, watched, talked about, spent more time in nature etc., and over time I started feeling better and more connected with my body. This connection to my body has helped me manage my condition, giving me back quality of life. I knew then I had found my path in life; to help others on their own healing journeys.

After gaining my qualifications and working in the beauty industry for some time I decided to study holistic therapies for a further two years, and I constantly dedicate myself to furthering my knowledge and skills in energy and bodywork through various courses. I now hold over 30 qualifications in beauty and holistic therapies including: anatomy and physiology, Swedish, holistic, hot stone, Thai yoga, Ayurvedic and Indian head massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Lomi Lomi massage and Lomi Lomi pregnancy massage, Hawaiian bone washing, diet and nutrition and stress management. I have over 5 years experience working in 4 and 5 star spas, salons and holistic centres in Bettystown and Dublin and I have recently moved to the Drogheda holistic centre to work alongside the very talented Aileen Durkan.

My holistic philosophy is focused on balance and treating the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. I aim to specialize in women’s health and trauma. I have worked with many women over the years with similar reproductive and endocrine conditions, fertility, pregnancy, anxiety and trauma, and I strive to provide a safe and comfortable space for one to let go and reconnect with themselves. During consultation I discuss with my clients any physical or emotional concerns they may have and what they would like to achieve from their treatments. With this information I can customize the treatment specifically through the use of different oils, hot stones and energy and bodywork to suit each client according to their chakra or dosha imbalance. This makes each treatment a unique and personal experience.If you are unsure which treatment is the right one for you, contact me or Aileen at the Drogheda Holistic Centre for a free consultation and we can find a treatment to best suit your needs.
