What attracted me to this field of physical therapy 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 or pulled muscles, but for me learning to heal from those injuries is actually what fascinated me, as much as the sport itself. Trying to understand the mechanics of the body and how it heals lead me on this bodywork journey, which has been incredibly rewarding. I have found that each subject I have studied, whether it is Bowen Therapy or Osteopathy, has added something new to my understanding of recovery and healing for the body and how it ultimately seeks to find balance. 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 to be gently facilitated.
