Mary has currently completed a 3 year part-time study in Acupuncture and Complementary medicine and has successfully passed all exams in Acupuncture and Clinical Medicine in Lansdowne College, Dublin 4 and has been working successfully in the area since 2011.

Drawing on over 14 years of experience, Mary has successfully treated a wide range of sport and job-related soft tissue injuries. She is particularly known for her skills in Deep Tissue Massage. She incorporates all of her techniques therapeutically into her treatment for tense tight muscule aches and pains e.g. neck, back and shoulders treatment.

Everyone suffers with muscule aches, pains or an injury from time to time, often caused by over-activity or inactivity, also from occupational or emotional stress. If a condition is not diagnosed and treated, long-term chronic problems can occur leading to muscular or postural imbalances.

The primary purpose of massage is to help alleviate the stress and tension that builds up in the body's soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Strains and sprains, due to the sudden onset of pain and dysfunction, are dealt with very quickly. Many more common injuries are caused by over-use syndrome. This occurs when a minor soft tissue trauma/tear goes undetected or is ignored. Through repetitive use - sporting or otherwise - a chronic injury is often the result. A Sports Massage Therapist will identify the root cause of an injury and take appropriate action to prevent a recurrence of the problem.
