Mairéad’s unique approach to sacred healing touch includes an array of ancient and innovative techniques, drawing on elements of Ayurveda, Lomi Lomi (a traditional Hawaiian-style massage that incorporates long flowing broad strokes), Shiatsu, Fascial Trains, Energy Meridians, and heated stones. She is especially skilled at abdominal massage and tension releasing techniques to restore balance in the body. The deep rest that is experienced during massage or yoga is the most healing part of her care.
Mairéad has studied yoga, herbs, and the healing arts for over a decade. Her first training was in 2009 at the Kripalu School of Massage. Since then, she has immersed herself in Ayurveda (one of the oldest medicinal practices in the world) and has gone on to become a certified Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist and Ayurvedic Practitioner. Ayurveda is woven into her practice as a massage therapist, herbalist, and yoga teacher, helping her to understand the needs of her clients, and to create a holistically healing environment for them.
Mairéad is a professional member of both the National Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and National Ayurvedic Medicine Association.
