Certified in IMS / Dry Needling
Visionary Craniosacral Work®
What can I do for you?
Just had major surgery? Be it repair of a torn muscle or ligament or replacement of a joint or feeling stiff after an abdominal surgery. I have worked many years in the rehabilitation of these problems having worked both in the wards of the hospital and a specialised outpatient orthopedic departments both in Canada and Ireland.
I love helping people meet their own personal goals in their recovery. I use a combination of my knowledge of human anatomy and correct movement as well as manual therapy, Visceral manipulation, dry needling, movement based exercises and most importantly encouragement to help rebalance and restore normal pain free movement of the body.
How else can I help you?
I have been studying a technique called Craniosacral Therapy since 2009. This technique derived out of Osteopathic medicine involves light manipulation of the many joints from the head to the feet restoring normal central nervous system distribution throughout the body. This can be incredibly helpful for those suffering from traumatic injuries seen in whiplash to more tension type problems such as of Tempomandibular dysfunction (Jaw Pain) or headaches. Most people describe feeling a sense of wholebody wellbeing and deep relaxation after a treatment. In the spring of 2018 I will have completed my certificate of further studies in Visionary Craniosacral work which will mark a 5 year process of in depth study in the treatment tool.
Want to know a little bit more about me?
Being from Ireland originally, I played semi professional soccer and native Gaelic football growing up. I enjoy learning about different movement activities such as yoga and climbing and have practiced meditation for the last 10 years, all of which I feel help me with my practice of helping others. Having moved to the Island I now have a wonderful family. I enjoy being outside with my son and wife. We love to travel and just spent 2 months traveling through central Mexico learning the language and native culture. We are now in Cowichan Valley and look forward to getting to know the area more!
