The Relaxation Room

About

More Information

I began studying holistic therapies in 2015 whilst still working in Human Resources. I knew I wanted to do something different but I wasn’t sure what so I decided on a diploma in Holistic Massage. I had recently discovered its many health benefits and was eager to learn more. That diploma changed the course of my life forever and I met the most wonderful people, many of whom are still a part of my life today.

To this day it is one of the best decisions I ever made. From there I went on to study various other therapies including deep tissue cupping, hopi ear candling, holistic nutrition and reflexology. I fell in love with reflexology and everything it encompassed.

During the course of my holistic studies I had two beautiful babies. I have practiced massage and reflexology on both my babies from when they were newborns and the results were nothing short of amazing!

Becoming a Mother transformed the way I viewed holistic therapies, I realised that I was now able to instil this way of life into my own children so they would grow up knowing and practicing self care unlike myself and others who’ve had to discover it later in life. I am very passionate about sharing this information with other parents in a supportive and informative way.

I love treating clients in my beautiful Relaxation Room and also offer in person baby wellness classes in Leixlip.

For me, being “holistic” is a way of life. It is not a “quick fix” or a “nice idea”. It is a collection of rituals that enable us to stay balanced, present and healthy.

As I continue to learn and grow as a therapist I hope my knowledge and skills can benefit others and enable them to better look after themselves and their families health and well-being.

Reflexology is a gentle therapy based on the principle that all the systems of the body are mapped out in reflex points on the feet, hands or face. It is mostly associated with the feet as they are the most sensitive.

Using specific thumb and finger techniques, reflexologists can stimulate approximately 7,500 nerve endings in the feet, helping to bring the body back to balance/homeostasis.

Reflexology is not a new concept, in fact its origins date as far back as ancient China and Egypt (2330 B.C.). Today it has become a popular complimentary therapy as it treats the body as a whole, not just specific areas, thus treating the whole person and not just the problem area.

Reflexology works by clearing blockages/congestion from specific areas of the body. This congestion can sometimes feel like grittiness under the skin to the reflexologist and may feel tender to the client. Often this congestion can lead to imbalances in the body and can show up in the form of illnesses or chronic disorders.

Reflexology is deeply relaxing and has many benefits from boosting immunity to improving sleep. It is suitable for all ages at all stages, from newborn to end of life.

A treatment from Susan is a little piece of heaven. Her gentle & warm personality instantly makes for a warm welcome & a cosy space to unwind & relax. After the reflexology treatment I was remarkably better, tension eased in my shoulders & a general sense of well being prevailed. I am already looking forward to my next treatment.

Thank you so very much, I am looking forward to my next session already.

Had the most lovely experience, a beautiful space, and felt instantly at ease. Susan is amazing at what she does, so relaxing and could feel the positive effects immediately.

Sinead

We really struggled with night-time sleep before we met you, as soon as we started the classes all the problems were gone!

Lily

The four week baby reflexology course was absolutely brilliant. Susan was so engaging, which can be hard to accomplish over Zoom. The lessons along with the notes were so helpful each week. My baby loved it.

Siobhán

Susan is a very patient teacher, easy knowing she has little ones herself as she understands the challenges of doing reflexology on babies and is brilliant at explaining the different steps. It's really made me aware of the benefits for my little guy.

Aishling

I highly recommend The Relaxation Room. My treatment of reflexology from Susan was very relaxing. Susan's presence made me relax from the onset, she had a lovely way of encouraging that. I also very much appreciated the feedback at the end of the treatment, and I felt so much lighter leaving.

Anne

I chose the digestion reflexology workshop as my little one was having trouble with constipation at times and thought it may help. Susan was so lovely and put me at ease from the start, she explained everything really well. As a first-time mum during COVID-19, it was lovely to have someone to give advice. I would highly recommend the workshops to parents. I will be signing up for more in the future. Thanks Susan!
