Restore Physiotherapy & Wellness

Welcome to our physiotherapy and wellness community.
My healthcare journey began when I took up Chinese Martial Arts in 2010 where I learned about movement and health in an entirely new way. With this I was able to heal from a chronic knee injury that I had picked up playing rugby.

After studying a BA in Human Development in Dublin City University I travelled and volunteered in therapy and yoga studios in Europe where I became even more fascinated with the healing power of movement and embodiment.
I made several visits to Plum Village, a Buddhist monastery, where I learned the practice of mindfulness directly from Thich Nhat Hanh and the monks living there.

On returning from my travels I wanted to continue to practice what I had learned, to study further and to share with others the healing resources that I had experienced. I studied a BSc in Physiotherapy in the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland and built a scientific foundation to my methods. My vision is to build a holistic health centre to help my clients to move better, to feel better and to live unrestricted lives.

Please feel very welcome to get in touch.
