I am a professionally qualified Sport & Remedial Massage Therapist, and a full member of the Irish Massage Therapist Association (I.M.T.A). Having qualified with a Diploma in Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy from National School For Remedial Therapy (N.S.R.T). My interest for sport & remedial massage therapy started following injury after injury from competing in multiple sports. I have suffered many of the injuries associated to each discipline & can relate to people with their injuries when they attend my clinic for differential diagnosis & injury treatment.

Since qualifying I have gained extensive experience working with both sporting & non sporting clients tailoring my techniques to suit people from all walks of life-whether you are injured from a sports related incident or from repetitive strain injury associated with your job.
I have also worked with local GAA teams & the Galway Senior Hurling team covering games for pre/post event massage & training sessions: I am currently working with the Galway Senior Football team covering both training sessions and also games.
