I completed my BSc Biomedical Science, NUIG, in 2010. I loved academia, but stresses of the lifestyle coupled with static work and study stations crippled me. After my degree, I spent less time at a desk and more on a yoga mat, exploring physical therapies as medicine for my pains.
In Melbourne, Australia I received my diploma in Remedial Massage & Sports Injury Theapry, 2012. I then worked as a senior allied health therapist in a busy city clinic for several years. On returning to Dublin in 2016 I opened the doors to my own clinic, Manual Movement Medicine. Since then achieved my diploma in Orthopaedic Sports Therapy form the Irish College of Osteopathic Medicine, Cork. I am a registered member of The Irish Institute of Physical Therapy.
As a therapist, my focus is to deliver first class clinical excellence to my patients through a diagnostic approach and informed decision-making. My comprehensive hands-on treatments are tailored to alleviate pain, support injury recovery, restore health and promote wellness. I apply osteopathic techniques, myofascial release and trigger point therapies as effective soft tissue treatments. The therapy continues outside the sessions with prescribed rehab exercises to be completed at home.
As a movement teacher, my mission is to facilitate an experience of enjoyable play and movement of ones body, inside and out! I teach Vinyassa and Yin Yoga, as well as Contact Improvisation dance, taking an intuitive approach to exploring the body’s most efficient, soft and powerful ways of moving in space.
