"Job done, feel great"

Treatment Received: MLD - Manual Lymphatic Drainage
MLD and Oscillation

Very pleased with everything. This was the first time having a treatment like this and I was not sure what to expect, but a neighbour mentioned he found this place good for getting clear of his back pain that he had suffered with for years, so I decided to go along and it was good. I had an assessment and treatment in the same appointment and it was €70 and came back the following week for a second treatment for €55. Job done, feel great.
Total Amount Paid €130

MLD treatment

A friend recommended this place as I had been suffering with back and neck pain for a while. After the assessment I had a treatment with MLD and it was really good! My neck felt great and it was really relaxing. Have no problem recommending this place and will definitely be back, just for the relaxing treatment, and the price was excellent too :)

Massage Therapy

Abdominal Massage
Facial Massage

Excellent results are obtained when Manual Lymph Drainage (|MLD) is applied to the face and neck. The effects are very relaxing and at the same time the elimination of toxins and debris from under the skin takes place. Facial massage drainage is a tonic all to itself.

Foot Massage
Full Body Massage
Lymph drainage massage - a therapeutic massage treatment that uses very light pressure and long, gentle strokes to increase lymphatic flow and get rid of toxins in your body. Full body Lymph massage will generally last 60-80 minutes.
Holistic Massage

Specialised Lymph Massage is a very relaxing and healthy massage that utilises a very specific system of movements to drain lymph fluid away allowing new lymph fluid to develop. Allow 60-80 minutes for this full body massage.

MLD - Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymph Drainage aims to redirect fluid from swollen areas to healthy lymphatic vessels, transporting it back to the normal circulatory system . With gentle, light but precise hand movements applied to the skin, the therapists exerts different intensities of pressure to increase the activity of normal lymphatic vessels. This encourages the fluid away from congested areas by bypassing ineffective or injured lymph vessels. The treatment is very gentle and a typical session will involve drainage of the neck, trunk, and the affected extremity (in that order), lasting approximately 40 to 60 minutes. The technique was pioneered by Doctor Emil Vodder in the 1930s

Complex Decongestive Therapy or CDT is a treatment option which combines Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) with Multi-Layer Lymphatic Bandaging (MLLB). It can also be known as Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy or DLT.
At Sanare we regularly combine Manual Lymph Drainage, Multi-Layer Lymphatic Bandaging and Deep Oscillation Therapy to provide the best individual therapy for our patients.


Acne Scars Treatment
Residual acne scarring responds well with a combination of MLD (Manual Lymph Drainage) and Deep Oscillation Therapy. Allow 60 mins for treatment time.
Rosacea Treatment
Rosacea responds well with a course of treatment with MLD (Manual Lymph Drainage). Treatment also involves skin care. Allow 60 mins for treatment time.

Holistic Health

Holistic Health Consultation

Holistic Health Consultations are a vital tool in assessing overall health and conditions. A consultation involves a detailed medical history and a physical examination. You should allow between 60 and 90 minutes for your consultation.


Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, it wasn’t until 1913 that Dr. William Fitzgerald, Ear Nose & Throat Specialist,  introduced this therapy to the West as ‘zone therapy’. He noted that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.

Reflexology is complementary therapy, which works on the feet to aid healing to the whole person not just the prevailing symptoms.

Foot Reflexology

Reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.

Many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind &  body and counteracting stress. Some doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy. Reflexology is an excellent all-round therapy for people of all ages.

Body Treatments

Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is treated with a combination of Deep Oscillation Therapy to gently 'vibrate' cells in the dermis and Manual Lymph Drainage to remove the debris naturally through the bodys own 'waste disposal' pathways of the lymph system. Allow 60 minutes for treatment.

Mr John Hynes

Job Title:
  Practice Therapist

Sanare was founded in 2010 by John Hynes,  Mem. BLS, MLD Ireland, IMTA & MIRI.

After graduating in Anatomy & Physiology and Therapuetic Reflexology in Ireland, John continued his education and trained in Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD),  Basic & Level I in Cork with Meadbh MacSweeney and continued to complete his extensive training in Levels II & III at the world renown  Wittlinger Akademie in Austria under the guidance and teachings of Professor Hildegard Wittlinger. John chose the Dr Vodder method of MLD as it is the original technique developed by Dr Emil Vodder in the 1930's . Dr Vodder therapists are required to be re-certified on a biannual basis to ensure the highest levels of excellence in MLD and lymphoedema management.  John is the only MLD Practitioner registered with MLD Ireland and the British Lymphology Society in Co Mayo. To further enhance patient comfort, John has successfully combined Dr Vodder’s Original Method of Advanced Manual Lymph Drainage with Deep Oscillation Therapy and Kineseotaping and is only one of a handful of practitioners in Ireland offering such advanced treatment pathways.
