Growing up in Germany, I came to Ireland in May 2000. When I was younger there was chronic illness and anxiety in my life and being in the same stressful job in Waterford for 15 years took its toll on my physical and emotional health and I knew things had to change. I don’t know what drew me so much to holistic therapy but from the first day in college I was absolutely hooked and felt this was what I wanted to do.
Since setting up Now and Zen in 2015, I have met the most amazing people and was fortunate enough that they trusted me and gave me wonderful feedback. I believe a good therapist has to be compassionate, intuitive and nurturing and genuinely interested in people and I try my best to do this every day.
I firmly believe in the healing effect of reflexology and massage and the joy of seeing people relax and get their issues helped is incredibly rewarding.
Practising from the privacy of my home, my clients can enjoy a calm, safe and relaxing space to give themselves the precious gift of self-care.
I am fully insured and registered with the IRIL.
If you have health insurance, you may be eligible for a refund for some of your reflexology treatment costs depending on your level of cover.
Modern day western medicine has brought so many good and life-saving achievements. Its downfall is its approach to look at the body in sections of individual symptoms rather than the incredible SYSTEM it is. This is necessary to achieve optimal wellness in the physical, mental and spiritual sense.
People today live longer than ever, but also experience chronically high levels of stress and fatigue, poor diet and exposure to harmful products daily.
And this is where the wonderful work of reflexology helps.
I truly believe that reflexology is one of the most powerful and effective treatments anyone can receive. It can release stress and tension within the body, improve circulation and lymphatic flow and works to unblock nerve impulse pathways. These benefits all work towards helping the body to heal itself by restoring balance to the vital energies.
Reflexology can also help with
Back & joint pain
Headache & migraine
It is not necessary to have a specific condition to benefit from treatments. You might just want some space and quiet time to relax or just want to feel pampered.
Holistic therapy does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.
The therapies listed should not be used in place of conventional medical care. It can, however, facilitate the body’s own healing process. This then may bring relief from symptoms of many conditions. Always consult your GP or health professional for medical attention and advice.
