started her career in Complementary Therapy in 1988 having trained in Therapeutic Massage, Sports Therapy and Aromatherapy. She also qualified in Deep Tissue Bodywork, Breath work, Clinical Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki, Chi Kung Tui Na, Acupressure and Fire Cupping.
She worked in the UK and Singapore before returning to Ireland to set up her own practice and school. Her years of experiences has led to a deep understanding of how our physical body is a map of our life, our body memory and the important role Massage, Touch and Bodywork plays in all aspects of our healing. This has evolved into her own unique approach to bodywork which combines gentle deep techniques with breath and energy work. Martina has also specialized in Oncology Massage working with people through all stages of their journey. She passionately believes appropriate Bodywork is an integral part of our healing and should be an integrated part of our healthcare system.
Martina met Anita Shannon when she trained with ACE Massage Cupping and MediCupping at Obus School in Leixlip, Co Kildare. The powerful benefits of this work were immediately evident within all areas of her work which inspired her to become one of their Educators.
