I always loved massage even as a young girl. When I was about 10 years old I found a book at home about massage, I would practice on my mother using olive oil! I never thought it might end up being my career one day. At the age of 17 I went on to study psychiatric nursing, as I had always found the human mind fascinating and felt drawn to the area mental health. In 2011 I graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a degree in psychiatric nursing. I worked for 3 years in a private psychiatric hospital in Dublin. I loved helping people but found I didn't love the use of so many medications with their numerous side-effects. I also found the nature of the job to be very overwhelming, there was always so much to do (paperwork!) I felt I never had enough time for my patients.
I decided to go travelling in 2014 with my friend to Asia and Australia. I worked in different hospitals in Melbourne and found nursing to be equally as stressful in Oz as it was in Ireland.
I had to do something as I knew this wasn't the right career for me. I returned home to Ireland after a year and retrained as a beauty and massage therapist. I fell in love with massage and the healing power of touch. I love that I can still help people to feel good, relaxed and that I can help to ease their pain (without the use of medication!). It is so rewarding to see peoples relaxed faces after a treatment. It doesn't just promote physical well-being but mental well-being too. The idea of lifting someone's mood and easing their anxiety through touch really appeals to me. I decided to drop the beauty side of things in order to focus on what I really love which is the holistic healing side. I know I am on the right path now.
I am constantly adding to my skill-base, I have recently completed a reflexology course where I achieved another merit. I thoroughly enjoyed this 9 month course, it further deepened my love and appreciation for alternative therapies. I am currently studying Sports Massage in order to provide even better treatments for the people with injuries from every day activities, not just sports injuries (e.g. carpal tunnels syndrome is a common injury for desk workers).
I now offer holistic massage, reflexology, Eve Taylor Facials and Hopi ear candling.
I absolutely love what I do! I am a firm believer that regular treatments will improve your health and well-being.
I would love to welcome you to my treatment room (based in my home) and help you however I can.
