I am a fully qualified Massage Therapist based in Killarney.

As well as Touch Therapies, I offer facial Treatments, Holistic Massage, Ear-candling and Ayuvedic Head Massage.

The term “Holistic” derives from the Ancient Greek word “holos” which means”whole”. By definition, Holistic massage treats the Whole Person – Your Body, Mind and Soul in unison.

Holistic massage works on several levels to reduce stress, improve immune function and revitalise the body. Massage relaxes and tones the muscles, and stimulates glands under the skin to produce hormones, including seratonin that calms the mind and emotions.

Holistic Massage also promotes drainage of the lymph system, which functions as a filtering mechanism for the blood plasma and plays an essential role in immunity. Unlike the blood system, however, which is kept circulating by the pumping action of the heart, the lymph system is not self-propelled. Instead, lymphatic flow depends upon muscular contractions to pump the body’s network of lymph vessels such as exercising or massage.

When the muscles are inactive, the unfiltered fluid stagnates in the vessels and nodes, weakening the body’s defense against disease.

This is why massage is vital to health because it works the muscles and drains the nodes. It is the only way most of us have in today’s work dominated society, other than regular exercise, to keep the lymph system flowing properly.

The massage i offer is a combination of Swedish techniques, acupressure, Shiatswe points and body stretching to help to release muscle tension and rid the body of stagnant energy that cause feelings of sluggishness and tiredness.

Touch nourishes life just as surely as food does…
