What attracted me to this field of physical therapy and osteopathy is that I played sports much of my life, both GAA and soccer. While I love team sports, there is always the fact that injuries occur, whether it is sprained ankles, pulled muscles or ligament injuries. Two things have developed my understanding of the mechanics of injury recovery. They are: learning to heal from my injuries and working with my patients in their journey towards injury recovery and prevention. It has been an incredibly rewarding journey. Each discipline I have studied has given me new insights into the body’s ability to recover, whether it is Osteopathy, Cranial therapy or Bowen therapy. The body, I believe, ultimately seeks to find balance, and over time, I’ve realised that the body will heal itself naturally, but sometimes, in order for it to achieve its restored balance, it needs facilitation with hands-on work and guidance with the most appropriate exercises for where it is at in its journey.
