More About Me
I’ve been a dedicated practitioner of Holistic and Complementary Health Therapies since 2003. I love teaching you to understand your body and embrace your own healing.
When I first set up my own practice in 2006, I had a treatment room in a local gym in Greystones. My primary focus was treating sports injuries and chronic pain with Deep Tissue Massage and Acupuncture. I have a heightened sensitivity that allows me to feel where people hold their tension, pain and suppressed emotions. Over the years, I have developed the ability to ease this pain using a combination of Massage, Acupuncture, Reiki and Sound Healing. Together, these 4 healing practices provide a fully integrated holistic treatment.
What is healing? In my opinion, healing is an acceptance of what is, and what has been. Accepting the way we feel, embracing our emotions and learning from the pain that manifests. I liken it to the ancient Japanese tradition of Kintsugi, where broken pottery is mended with golden glue so the cracks and imperfections are cherished and seen as an opportunity to allow the light to shine through. I feel this serves as a reminder that we are all perfectly imperfect versions of ourselves. When we undergo our own healing journey, it is important to remember that we will never be the same as we were before, but often we are stronger as a result.
Sound Healing didn't just come about from nothing... I am also a Singer/Songwriter. Singing has always been my biggest form of expression. I can channel all my feelings into music and feel totally free to express myself without judgement (something I couldn't do as a child/young adult through my normal speaking voice). I have had extensive vocal training through the Royal Irish Academy of Music, I've sung in numerous choirs (including the RTE Philharmonic Choir) and gigged as the lead singer of a band. I always kept my Music and my Holistic Therapies very separate... until recently when I discovered the world of Sound Healing. It was as if someone had handed me the key to my soul and it unlocked my super powers!
My ability to channel emotions into music and really feel it with every cell of my body, enabled me to write an album of songs (which I released in 2020). This labour of love was a healing journey for me, and fittingly entitled "Odyssey". You can listen to and download Odyssey by clicking on the button below.
